The Beholder by Anna Bright

Genres: YA Fantasy

Goodreads // Wordery // Book Depository

The BeholderSelah has waited her whole life for a happily ever after. As the only daughter of the leader of Potomac, she knows her duty is to find the perfect match, a partner who will help secure the future of her people. Now that day has finally come.

But after an excruciatingly public rejection from her closest childhood friend, Selah’s stepmother suggests an unthinkable solution: Selah must set sail across the Atlantic, where a series of potential suitors awaits—and if she doesn’t come home engaged, she shouldn’t come home at all.

From English castle gardens to the fjords of Norge, and under the eye of the dreaded Imperiya Yotne, Selah’s quest will be the journey of a lifetime. But her stepmother’s schemes aren’t the only secrets hiding belowdecks…and the stakes of her voyage may be higher than any happy ending.



“…English castle gardens to the fjords of Norge…” This just sounds epic and beautiful.

My Gosh! That cover is stunning! I’m getting all sorts of Black Sails vibes.

The Odyssey meets Cinderella. I mean, have you ever heard something more perfect?

  2. This was my pick last week. I can’t wait to read it! I’m intrigued by the combo of Cinderella and The Odyssey. Can’t wait to see how the author pulls it off. Hope you enjoy it!

    Here’s my WoW.

  3. I read this book as an ARC last week. It combines nostalgic fairytale settings and characters with little contemporary twists. There was quite a lot of romance, which I was initially unsure about, but I actually enjoyed it. I hope you guys have a great time reading The Beholder.

    1. Thanks! 💜 That’s a great heads up about the romance. It’s not always my favourite so it’s good to know going in to expect a lot of it. 😊
