Sea Change by S. M. Wheeler

Sea Change by S. M. Wheeler

Lilly, raised by wealthy parents who don’t seem to like each other much, escapes to the sea at every opportunity.  While playing at the shore one day she discovers a small creature struggling against gulls in a tidal pool.  She rescues the creature, a kraken she names Octavius, who eventually grows to the size one would imagine a sea monster would.  Through the years the two become great friends, until the day Lilly is forced to leave her home and discovers that Octavius has been captured.

This is a novel about the enduring power of friendship and how far someone is willing to go to help out a friend.  In the case of Lilly, and the hardships she endures to ensure Octavius’s release, the lengths she will go are very far indeed!  Witches, trolls, magical beings and the undead are only some of the creatures Lilly meets on her quest.  This is a very dark and unsettling faery tale realm, best journeyed to by adults.
