"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly feature started by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It's where we can gossip about yet-to-be-released books that we're looking forward to.
New series, in which triplet descendants of Medusa learn they are destined to guard the door between the world of monsters and the world of men – pitched as a mythological Charmed.
Even though this synopsis is vague and reveals almost nothing about Sweet Venom in particular, I am salivating over the prospect of reading this book. Tera Lynn Childs is one of my favorite authors, with her fresh storylines and her witty dialogue, and I can't wait to read this novel.
Sweet Venom releases on October 4, 2011.
On Lily Sanderson’s eighteenth birthday she’ll become just a girl—still a mer girl, true, but signing the renunciation paperwork will ink Princess Waterlily of Thalassinia out of existence. That leaves plain old Lily living on land, dating the boy she loves, and trying to master this being human thing once and for all.
Now that Lily and Quince are together, mer-bond or not, she’s almost content to give up her place in the royal succession of Thalassinia. But just when she thinks she has everything figured out, Lily’s father sends a certain whirlpool-stirring cousin to stay with her on land. What did Doe do to get herself exiled from Thalassinia and stuck in terraped form, when everyone knows how much she hates humans? And why why why is she batting her eyelashes at Lily’s former crush, Brody?
The seafoam on the surf comes when a merboy from Lily’s past shows up. Tellin asks Lily for something that clouds her view of the horizon. There’s a future with Quince on land, her loyalty to the kingdom in the sea, and Lily tossing on the waves in the middle. Will she find a way to reconcile her love, her duty, and her dreams?
Fins Are Forever is the second in Tera Lynn Childs' mermaid series and it sounds fantastic! The first book, Forgive My Fins, was an enormously entertaining read and anything else about Lily and Quinn was bound to get my attention. If you're a fan of contemporary fantasy, pick up this series!
Fins Are Forever releases on July 1, 2011.
P.S. Aren't those covers enchanting?
