Waiting On Wednesday #131: Dark Tide, by Jennifer Donnelly

This is a weekly event hosted by
It showcases future releases which
we book bloggers
are eagerly anticipating!!

Here's my choice for this week!

Dark Tide 
(Waterfire Saga #3)
Hardcover, 400 pages
Disney Hyperion
October 13, 2015
Fantasy, Mythology, Paranormal Romance,
Young Adult Fiction

Once a lost and confused princess, Serafina is now a confident leader of the Black Fin Resistance (BFR). While she works on sabotaging her enemy and enlisting allies for battle, her friends face challenges of their own. Ling is in the hold of Rafe Mfeme's giant trawler, on her way to a prison camp. Becca meets up with Astrid and learns why the Ondalinian mermaid is always so angry: she is hiding a shameful secret. Ava can't return home, because death riders await her arrival. And it is getting more and more difficult for Mahdi, Serafina's betrothed, to keep up the ruse that he is in love with Lucia Volerno. If Lucia's parents become suspicious, his life--and all of Sera's hopes--will be extinguished. Political intrigue, dangerous liaisons, and spine-tingling suspense swirl like a maelstrom in this penultimate book in the WaterFire saga

Why I'm waiting on this one!!

I will always be interested  in anything 
having to do with mermaids!
Incredibly,  I have never watched 
"The Little Mermaid", but
I did read the fairytale years ago, as a child.
Ever since then, these stories
of people who are half-human, half-fish
have fascinated me.
I read Tempest Rising a couple of
years ago, and I think it's 
about time I read more such stories!
So, this book is joining my TBR,
to make company with Lost Voices
as well as other YA mermaid novels!
Furthermore, this is an 
absolutely stunning cover! 
I have discovered a new series to love!!

What do you think of my choice?
What fascinating book(s) are
