Waiting on Wednesday (6)

"Waiting on Wednesday"  is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's WoW is . . .

When the Sea is Rising Red by Cat Hellisen

 After seventeen-year-old Felicita’s dearest friend, Ilven, kills herself to escape an arranged marriage, Felicita chooses freedom over privilege. She fakes her own death and leaves her sheltered life as one of Pelimburg’s magical elite behind. Living in the slums, scrubbing dishes for a living, she falls for charismatic Dash while also becoming fascinated with vampire Jannik. Then something shocking washes up on the beach: Ilven's death has called out of the sea a dangerous, wild magic. Felicita must decide whether her loyalties lie with the family she abandoned . . . or with those who would twist this dark power to destroy Pelimburg's caste system, and the whole city along with it.  

Fantasy and creepy covers and dramatic pitches? I think yes.  Even the title.   That's just a badass title if there ever was one.  Only four more weeks till this lovely is on shelves! 

What's your WoW this week?  Feel free to leave a link in the comments.



Ooh me too this sounds so much like a book for me! And that cover is seriously creepy awesome!


Isn't it? :D I just love it. It's simple, but the vibe is so eerie and fantastic.

I can't wait for this book. The cover is very beautiful and haunting. Love it.


I know! I've been staring at it for ages now. Which is probably not the most productive way of spending my time, but . . .


Now that is one brillant cover and a great pitch. I've added this to my TBR pile--all you book bloggers are bad influences on me and my wallet >:(

Thanks for stopping by my WoW!


Ohhh yes. >_> I probably have like 50 books on my TBR list just from WoW. I just need to get thousands of dollars so I can buy every book I want. :D

No problem!
