Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

32890474This week I’m looking forward to The Seafarer’s Kiss by Julia Ember. Last year I read Unicorn Tracks and fell madly in love with Julia’s writing. It’s magical. Seriously! I’ve been dying to get my hands on what she would release next and this year we are getting 2 books! YAY!

So, why do I NEED this book? Well…

– The cover is gorgeous!
– It’s a F/F retelling of The Little Mermaid.
– It’s told from Ursula’s (Ersel) point of view.

Having long-wondered what lives beyond the ice shelf, nineteen-year-old mermaid Ersel learns of the life she wants when she rescues and befriends Ragna, a shield-maiden stranded on the mermen’s glacier. But when Ersel’s childhood friend and suitor catches them together, he gives Ersel a choice: say goodbye to Ragna or face justice at the hands of the glacier’s brutal king.

Determined to forge a different fate, Ersel seeks help from Loki. But such deals are never as one expects, and the outcome sees her exiled from the only home and protection she’s known. To save herself from perishing in the barren, underwater wasteland and be reunited with the human she’s come to love, Ersel must try to outsmart the God of Lies.
