Waiting on Wednesday: June 20, 2012: Fathomless by Jackson Pearce

20 Jun

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly me hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine (gotta love the name!). The idea is that it spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. So, here is my pick for the week:

by Jackson Pearce
Publication Date: September 4, 2012

From Amazon:
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.

This is the last book in Jackson Pearce’s fairy tale retelling series, the others are Sisters Red and Sweetly, and the series is simply amazing. The series is rather loosely centered around some of the Reynolds children, but you can read them in any order or pick and choose which one interests you the most.

Pearce puts an interesting spin on the fairly tales that we all gew up with as children. She puts a paranormal spin on the traditional stories while still staying rather grounded in modern society. I know it sounds difficult to do, but she manages it and she does it WELL. If you’re into paranormal fantasy or just really love fairy tales this is definitely a series worth looking into.

      They are definitely worth the read! Jackson Pearce has now been added to the list of “authors where i will preorder any book they write without knowing a thing about it”. She’s that awesome.

      Thanks for stopping by!
