Waiting On Wednesday #10

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

What I am waiting for on this Wednesday: Ripple by Mandy Hubbard (July 2011)

Haven't read a novel with a siren as protagonist, promises to offer new perspectives on the fantasy genre.

Lexi is cursed with a dark secret. The water calls to her, draws her in, forces her to sing her deadly song to unsuspecting victims. If she succumbs, she kills. If she doesn’t, the pain is unbearable. To keep herself and those she cares about safe, she shuts herself off, refusing to make friends or fall in love—again. Because the last time she fell in love with a boy, he ended up dead.

Then Lexi meets Cole. Against her better judgment, she finds herself opening up again, falling in love when she knows she shouldn’t. But when she’s offered the chance to finally live a normal life, she learns that the price she must pay to be free of her curse is giving him up.

    Here's mine:

  2. I am waiting on this one too. Love the premise. Great pick!

  3. Such a different story! A change in our usual protagonists.

    My Waiting on Wednesday:

  4. A siren protagonist is so original for paranormal romance. Great pick, and I'll be waiting on it with you. :)

  5. Good choice Sarah, I'm really excited for this one as well! Sirens are such a different paranormal YA group, so I'm excited to read more about them:)

  6. Ich mag das Cover total gern und die Story klingt auch gut, aber das letzte (und erste) Buch, was ichv on Mandy Hubbard gelesen habe, war nur so lala. Hmmm :/

    Sirenen und Meerjungfrauen scheinen jetzt groß im Kommen zu sein. Mir sind schon mehrere Bücher in die Richtung untergekommen.

  7. I think this sounds so good. I love a different twist on the paranormal scene!

  8. Sounds horrifying! Love your blog :)

  9. I really want this one too. I love the wave of siren themed novels coming out soon! Great pick!
