Waiting on Wednesday (4)
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme that was created by Breaking the Spine to spotlight a blogger's eagerly anticipated new books.
For this Waiting on Wednesday, I picked Between the Sea and Sky by Jaclyn Dolamore.
Release Date: October 25th 2011
Book Summary: "For as long as Esmerine can remember, she has longed to join her older sister, Dosinia, as a siren—the highest calling a mermaid can have. When Dosinia runs away to the mainland, Esmerine is sent to retrieve her. Using magic to transform her tail into legs, she makes her way unsteadily to the capital city. There she comes upon a friend she hasn't seen since childhood—a dashing young man named Alandare, who belongs to a winged race of people. As Esmerine and Alandare band together to search for Dosinia, they rekindle a friendship . . . and ignite the emotions for a love so great, it cannot be bound by sea, land, or air."
My Thoughts:Well, the storyline reminds me slightly of The Little Mermaid and the Tom Hanks movie "Splash", but in a good way. I think Alandare's character sounds very unique for a mermaid story. Between the Sea and Sky has the makings of an interesting story indeed. Tweet
