Waiting on Wednesday: Ashes on the Waves

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:

ashesonwaves_thumb[2]Title: Ashes on the Waves by Mary Lindsey
Publisher: Philomel/Penguin
Publish Date: June 27, 2013
Genre: Horror

Goodreads Summary: 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.

Based on Edgar Allan Poe’s chilling poem Annabel Lee, Mary Lindsey creates a frighteningly beautiful gothic novel that glorifies the power of true love.

Why am I waiting on Ashes on the Waves? Lately, I’ve become a bit fascinated by YA books based on stories and poems by Edgar Allan Poe and this sounds like a good one. What books are you waiting on?

I actually really don't like this cover but I loved Shattered Souls by Lindsey and I'm a big Poe fan so hopefully I'll love this book too!

Great choice! I'm really looking forward to this one, too! Especially after hearing Mary Lindsay talk about it at a conference - she really seems to love this story, and it's great to read something a writer is really proud of. :)
