Waiting on Wednesday #28

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by, Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on!

Title: Fathomless
Author: Jackson Pearce
Release Date: September 4th, 2012
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

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.

After recently reading Purity, I can easily say I'm eagerly awaiting Pearce's next book, Fathomless.  Though I admit, I haven't read the first two fairytale retellings yet, this one appeals to me more than Sisters Red and Sweetly combined.

What awesome title are you waiting for this Wednesday?


  1. That cover is awesome looking! I haven't heard of this one until now, but thanks for sharing! :)

  7. I _love_ the synopsis for Fathomless! I've not read the first two books, but it sounds like they're generally stand-alones?

    Either way, I've just added this to my GR List! Thanks for the great recommendation :-)

    Here's my WoW

  8. I wasn't terribly impressed with either Sisters Red or Sweetly, but I'm powerless against a Little Mermaid retelling! This one is on my TBR list too! Great pick!
