Waiting on Wednesday #34: Of Poseidon

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases.

Of Poseidon
By: Anna Banks
Release Date: May 22, 2012

"Emma and her friend Chloe are spending vacation in Florida. When Emma (literally) runs into a hot guy named Galen on the beach, little does she know he’s a prince of the Syrena. Galen and Emma both feel something strange – is it attraction? – and Galen suspects that Emma might well be the girl he’s heard of – a human who can communicate with fish. What follows is a deadly scene with a shark in which Galen witnesses Emma’s gifts. He must know more about her, and follows her back to New Jersey, and high school, to find out for sure if she’s the key to saving his kingdom. Soon, Emma can’t deny her feelings for him, but can’t explain them, either – and both she and Galen must learn more about where she comes from and what her powers are before they can trust one another and their feelings."(Summary from goodreads.com)

I am looking forward to Of Poseidon because I have been getting really into mermaid stories lately.

  3. I'm looking forward to this as well. I've only read one mermaid story, which still makes it a subject very new and full of so many possibilities.

  12. Poseidon sounds like a really good read minus the instant attraction that they "just can't explain " element that's a part of so many YA titles. Nice pick.

  26. There's been quite a lot of mermaid stories coming out lately! Wonder if they're going to replace vampires?

  27. The world building is incredible. The way the author described the underwater world was astonishing. I was absorbed inside instantly. Anna Banks has the talent to shock readers too. There were loads of twists and revelations that will put you on the edge of your seat. This book is also full of action. The shark scenes made my heart stopped. I feel like I was watching "JAWS" in some part of the story. The shark scenes were very cinematic. I was scared the whole time, while reading it. Good job, Anna!
