But a mysterious temptress worms her way into his best friend’s world, and Calder has to figure out how to save his childhood pal from the evil clutches of a witch...without losing his chance at landing his happily ever after.

Really enjoyed this book
I first thought this was very similar to The Little Mermaid but the book is definitely it’s own story. The narration is good.
