“Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that I’m eagerly anticipating.
This week I am waiting on Of Poseidon by Anna Banks which releases on May 22nd 2012.
Galen, a Syrena prince, searches land for a girl he’s heard can communicate with fish. It’s while Emma is on vacation at the beach that she meets Galen. Although their connection is immediate and powerful, Galen’s not fully convinced that Emma’s the one he’s been looking for. That is, until a deadly encounter with a shark proves that Emma and her Gift may be the only thing that can save his kingdom. He needs her help–no matter what the risk.
I’ve never read a mer-people book before, so I’m excited about this one. The whole concept of an underwater world is very intriguing. It sounds like a different kind of book, and I like different!
