I will almost definitely be buying this book for the cover. Seriously, how gorgeous is that? TheFor as long as Esmerine can remember, she has longed to join her sister as a siren, the highest calling a mermaid can have. But when her sister runs away to the mainland, reportedly to elope with a human, Esmerine is sent to retrieve her.
Using magic to transform her tail into legs, she makes her way unsteadily through the streets of New Sweeling. There, she will come upon a friend she hasn't seen since childhood - Alandare, a boy, now a man, who belongs to a winged race of people. Together, Esmerine and Alandare put aside their differences to find her sister, and in the process discover a love that cannot be bound by land, sea, or air.
color scheme and drapery of the girl's dress has such an enchanting and ethereal feel to me.
Jaw dropping cover aside, this story sounds completely fantastic. I'm only sad that we still have to wait a full six months to read it.
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
