  eatrice Shakespeare Smith is in a bit of a pickle.  Having just wrested Nate and herself from the hands of the angry sea witch Sedna, she has managed to learn the truth about her father… and make a sea witch really, really mad.  In the conclusion of this trilogy, Bertie is tasked with saving her family, saving her loves, saving herself, saving the theatre, and finishing her play.  That’s not too much to ask, right? Before we go any further, can we just take a moment to appreciate the cover? ALL THREE BOOKS IN THIS TRILOGY HAVE COVERS TO […]
