Waiting on Wednesday: Revel

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. This week’s choice is:

revel Title: Revel by Maurissa Guibord
Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers
Publish Date: Feb. 12, 2013
Genre: Fantasy, Mythology

Goodreads Summary: There's an island off the coast of Maine that's not on any modern map. Shrouded in mist and protected by a deadly reef, Trespass Island is home to a community of people who guard the island and its secrets from outsiders. Seventeen-year-old Delia grew up in Kansas, but has come here in search of her family and answers to her questions: Why didn't her mother ever talk about Trespass Island? Why did she fear the open water? But Delia's not welcome and soon finds herself enmeshed in a frightening and supernatural world where ancient Greek symbols adorn the buildings and secret ceremonies take place on the beach at night. Sean Gunn, a handsome young lobsterman, befriends Delia and seems willing to risk his life to protect her. But it's Jax, the coldly elusive young man she meets at the water's edge, who finally makes Delia understand the real dangers of life on the island. Delia is going to have to fight to survive. Because there are monsters here. And no one ever leaves Trespass alive.

Why am I waiting on Revel? I’m always excited about books with Greek mythology so even the hint of mythology in this description is enough to hook me! What books are you waiting on?

I wish I was more familiar with various mythologies so I could take a guess at this one but I'm at a loss. The water makes me think mermaids/sirens but I really don't know.
