Waiting On Wednesday #3


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. It is hosted at Breaking the Spine.

The Seafarer’s Kiss by Julia Ember

the-seafarers-kissHappy February! This means it’s totally close enough to start fangirling about books due in May, right?

Well, either way, hearing about this really sparked my interest in mermaid novels again. I tried a few in the past but never made it past a few dozen pages. However, I am here, there, and everywhere in support of #ownvoices bi mermaids and it’s a Norse retelling of The Little Mermaid. My heart sings in anticipation, I swear it.

Having long-wondered what lives beyond the ice shelf, nineteen-year-old mermaid Ersel learns of the life she wants when she rescues and befriends Ragna, a shield-maiden stranded on the mermen’s glacier. But when Ersel’s childhood friend and suitor catches them together, he gives Ersel a choice: say goodbye to Ragna or face justice at the hands of the glacier’s brutal king.

Determined to forge a different fate, Ersel seeks help from Loki. But such deals are never as one expects, and the outcome sees her exiled from the only home and protection she’s known. To save herself from perishing in the barren, underwater wasteland and be reunited with the human she’s come to love, Ersel must try to outsmart the God of Lies.
