Waiting on Wednesday: Fathomless by Jackson Pearce

Hi, everyone!


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Here is this week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection:

TITLE: Fathomless
SERIES: Fairytale Retellings, Book #3
AUTHOR: Jackson Pearce 
PUBLISHER: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
EXPECTED PUBLICATION DATE: September 4, 2012
FORMAT: Hardcover, 304 pages
GENRE: Young Adult, Fantasy
ISBN: 9780316207782
Celia Reynolds is the youngest in a set of triplets and the one with the least valuable power. Anne can see the future, and Jane can see the present, but all Celia can see is the past. And the past seems so insignificant -- until Celia meets Lo.

Lo doesn't know who she is. Or who she was. Once a human, she is now almost entirely a creature of the sea -- a nymph, an ocean girl, a mermaid -- all terms too pretty for the soulless monster she knows she's becoming. Lo clings to shreds of her former self, fighting to remember her past, even as she's tempted to embrace her dark immortality.

When a handsome boy named Jude falls off a pier and into the ocean, Celia and Lo work together to rescue him from the waves. The two form a friendship, but soon they find themselves competing for Jude's affection. Lo wants more than that, though. According to the ocean girls, there's only one way for Lo to earn back her humanity. She must persuade a mortal to love her . . . and steal his soul.


I love fairytale re-tellings, and I already own the first book in the series but still need to read it! I better read the first two before this one comes out in the Fall.

  2. Love fairytale re-tellings too! This sounds awesome, guess we never know how important the past is until it's too late...

    I have to check this series out! I thought the only fairytale re-tellings that came in series was the Once Upon a Time novels.

    Here's my WoW! Happy Wednesday!
