When Oceans Rise is a powerful survey that introduces a sea witch's influences, but presents many thought-provoking moments about pivot points, decision-making, and repetitive patterns in life that defy change.- Mid-West Book Review

"A gorgeous debut about gods, monsters, and the courage it takes to love (and free) yourself. When Oceans Rise deserves a place on every shelf." - Gigi Griffis, author of THE WICKED UNSEEN

"A spellbindingly fresh reimagining of The Little Mermaid that will bewitch readers until they reach the final page. Malaya is a compelling protagonist entrapped in a conflict that will resonate with the realities of many young women. You can't help but to root for her as she traverses through alternate timelines rife with creatures from Filipino folklore and her own personal demons. Alvarez is a brilliant new voice to watch in the world of fantasy fiction." - Priyanka Taslim, author of THE LOVE MATCH

"Malaya, you are the captain of your life. You decide which oceans to sail. You don't wait for the ocean to take you." (This has to be my favourite line in the book.)

In a nutshell, this is an emotional ride that navigates the waves of an abusive relationship. The emotions in this cautionary tale are raw and relatable, and will sweep you off your feet. Beautifully woven with the magic of rich Filipino culture, Alvarez's remarkable debut will stay with you beyond the last page." - Joyce Chua, author of LAND OF SAND AND SONG

"Simply stunning! Robin Alvarez weaves together the perfect blend of modern retelling and mythical fantasy in When Oceans Rise. Prepare yourself to be swept away in this gorgeous and courageous story of loving yourself after heartbreak." - Dana Swift, Author of CAST IN FIRELIGHT
