Feathertide by Beth Cartwright

Today it is my stop on the blog tour for Feathertide by Beth Cartwright and I am going to be sharing my review with you for this enchanting storyline.


Born covered in the feathers of a bird, and kept hidden in a crumbling house full of secrets, Marea has always known she was different, but never known why. And so to find answers, she goes in search of the father she has never met.

The hunt leads her to the City of Murmurs, a place of mermaids and mystery, where jars of swirling mist are carried through the streets by the broken-hearted.

And Marea will never forget what she learns there

My Review

Feathertide by Beth Cartwright is an enchanting fairy-tale that follows Marea on her journey to find her father, but Marea is no ordinary girl in fact she is quite beautifully extraordinary with her soft downy feathers that coats her back.

Marea doesn’t know much about her father other than it is from him that she has inherited her feathers and she is determined to find him but what she doesn’t realise is that she will find more than she expects on her journey.

Feathertide was such a magical read that I adored, the author creates a wonderful air of enchantment throughout the setting of the storyline. I was swept away with the storyline and I loved Marea as well as those around her who loved her. I have recently watched Carnival Row on Amazon Prime and I had Cara Delavigne character stuck in my head when reading about Marea.

As a youngling Marea was sheltered from the outside world and only had contact with those who loved and cared for her and she believed herself truly beautiful and it shows how peoples negative views and words can completely change our opinions of ourselves so easily and it was a part that really touched me in this book when Marea had her first interaction with the outside world and we see this little girl with such a positive little glow about her fade.

I found this quite an exciting read with the magical and enchanting element taking me back to my childhood with the kind of emotions and feels you only experienced in those younger years when you almost believed that these fairytales hold an element of truth!

I loved Feathertide and if you would like to get lost in an adult fairy tale that also holds love and self-discovery at its heart then you will not be disappointed. I can not wait for another release by Beth Cartwright.
