Imagine this: What if Ariel never defeated Ursula, and her fate was to end up as a poor unfortunate soul? In the new book Part of Your World: A Twisted Tale, on sale now, the classic Little Mermaid tale goes down a darker path when the infamous sea witch defeats Ariel and takes King Triton’s life while she’s at it. Fast forward five years: Ariel is the voiceless queen of Atlantica, and Ursula has overtaken Prince Eric’s kingdom on land. Sounds like life isn’t so much the bubbles now in this scenario! But there is a silver lining. Ariel finds out that her father might still be alive, so she unexpectedly sets out to be a part of the human world once again, to make things right.
