Selena is the crown-princess of the Duchy of Benfield and she has a problem...well several problems and they're not small problems. First, her father had promised her to the Osmund, the new Duke of Talderland, in an effort to stop the fighting between the two lands. Resigning to this fate to achieve the greater good doesn't mean Selena is happy her father broke tradition by not letting her choose her own groom. Making matters worse, Osmund is a narcissist of the worst order. That dilemma is settled for her on the way to the nuptials as her father and escort of knights are waylaid by dwarven raiders. The party is massacred and she is taken captive. Now Selena must get to the bottom of who is responsible and see justice done. First, she must escape.

Fox does an incredible job with his main character, demonstrating her thought processes through some challenging dilemmas. In her quest for survival and justice, Selena must balance her ethical virtues with the desired outcomes. The dialogue was also well-written, adding color to supporting characters, especially when she engages the Dwarves - an excellent touch of old English. Fox keeps the story moving, incorporating action and strong emotions. Sea-Change is a very well written, entertaining novella you'll not likely put down. I love the paradigms Fox created for Selena, giving me a greater appreciation for her depth. I wanted more - 4.5 stars.

I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.

This is a short fantasy novella.

Selena is the daughter of the Duke of Benfield. She is a young woman with a knowledge of witchcraft, but she has also been trained in the art of weaponry.

I am not sure if I liked this character, as this novella was too short to get to know her very well. However, I can understand why she would go to such lengths to exact revenge. Nevertheless, I completely disagree with vigilante bent of her temper; although, I did snigger at the creative way she went about it.
The change from feminine to male point of view was a bit confusing, and I struggled to wrap my head around the pronouns. That being said, the writing was quite inventive, and the story was very entertaining. The ending had me grinning, but I also did feel sorry for Osmund, even though he did deserve his punishment. It's a pity that the spell cannot be used for real today!

P.W. Fox has written an intriguing novella. I enjoyed his writing style, and look forward to reading more of this author's work.

I recommend this novella for lovers of fantasy and paranormal genres, or if you are looking for a quick read between books. - Lynn Worton

Good Points

I loved the descriptions in the novella, especially those of the little world that had been created for it. They were very vivid, and full of rich discoveries on every page. I also liked the use of accents and `old' language in the book; so many authors are afraid to use them for fear of using them to much-or indeed at all. But Mr Fox has done a wonderful job of including them here. The story was interesting, and very original, and it was fantastic to read, the imagination firing throughout the book. The dialogue between the characters drove the story, and was realistic and you could hear the voices ringing through the pages.

Bad Points

Although I understand this is a novella, and so a lot shorter than a novel, I still felt it was a little rushed in parts. There were several actions scenes, namely the first few pages, and where Selena jumps from the boat, where I thought it would have been nice to have more tension; in order to create some drama. I also found the naming of the character a little odd to keep up with. Without giving away any spoilers, I thought it was hard to keep up with one name when the character had changed in a certain way, and then it was a different name again later on.


I thought this was a very original idea, and very imaginative. It was a great story about revenge and the moral compass of this, creating a novella that kept me gripped until the end. I did really enjoy this story, but I felt that the points mentioned above were quite significant, as it made me `come out' of the story a little when it lost drama. I really felt this would have been a great novel instead, if it had been fleshed out more and added to. Overall, it was a great read, and I would recommend it to fans of fantasy for a quick read.

I give this novella......3.5 Stars!

Here is a great fantasy short story about the satisfaction of revenge following a devastating betrayal. PW breathes life into the characters of this story and created a fan in me almost immediately. Throughout the tale I found myself routing for our heroine/hero. The story mixes an heavy dose of old world realism and magic to tell a story to satisfying completeness. I literally couldn't put the tale down until the end. A must read for everyone, but particularly those who like magic and fantasy spun into their tales.
