Waiting on Wednesday #68

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: Ashes on the Waves
Author: Mary Lindsey
Release Date: June 27th,  2013
Publisher: Penguin

Liam MacGregor is cursed. Haunted by the wails of fantastical Bean Sidhes and labeled a demon by the villagers of Dòchas, Liam has accepted that things will never get better for him—until a wealthy heiress named Annabel Leighton arrives on the island and Liam’s fate is changed forever. 

With Anna, Liam finally finds the happiness he has always been denied; but, the violent, mythical Otherworlders, who inhabit the island and the sea around it, have other plans. They make a wager on the couple’s love, testing its strength through a series of cruel obstacles. But the tragedies draw Liam and Anna even closer. Frustrated, the creatures put the couple through one last trial—and this time it’s not only their love that’s in danger of being destroyed.

I loved Mary Lindsey's debut, Shattered Souls, so when I found out that she was coming out with a new book this year, I knew I had to add it to my wishlist. Better yet, it's another Edgar Allan Poe retelling. I've always loved Annabel Lee, so I can't wait to find out how this turns out!

What awesome title are you waiting for this Wednesday?  

By the way, if you're looking to get your hands on an ARC of Unremembered by Jessica Brody, check out my giveaway! 


  1. This book sounds excellent. I'll have to try this author. Thanks for sharing :)

    Here's my WOW pick.

  2. I've seen this book a couple times before and it's cover is gorgeous. I haven't read Shattered Souls but maybe I will in the meantime to see if I like the author as much as you do. Great pick! If you'd like to check out my WoW you can do so here.

  3. I got a copy of this and read the first chapter---already loving it, and had to force myself to put it aside because I've got a few others that need to come first. I definitely think this one is going to be worth the wait!

  4. Ooooo, this sounds like so much fun! I'm a huge fan of Poe too! I have a cat named after him!

    This is my WoW:

  5. I can never say no to Poe nod, especially considering how truly wonderful the Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin. If Ashes on the Water is even half as good, I'll love it. Thank you for sharing :)

  6. I love a good re-telling (re-envisioning?)! I enjoyed Shattered Souls so it looks like I need to add this on GR!

    My WoW this week is Thornhill by Kathleen Peacock!

  7. Enjoy! your pick.

  8. I've not heard of this one, but it sounds very interesting. Thanks so much for sharing!
