Waiting on Wednesday (8)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. 

Title/Author: Of Poseidon by Anna Banks
Pages: 324
Published: Feiwel & Friends (May 22nd 2012)

Emma and her friend Chloe are spending vacation in Florida. When Emma (literally) runs into a hot guy named Galen on the beach, little does she know he’s a prince of the Syrena. Galen and Emma both feel something strange – is it attraction? – and Galen suspects that Emma might well be the girl he’s heard of – a human who can communicate with fish.

What follows is a deadly scene with a shark in which Galen witnesses Emma’s gifts. He must know more about her, and follows her back to New Jersey, and high school, to find out for sure if she’s the key to saving his kingdom. Soon, Emma can’t deny her feelings for him, but can’t explain them, either – and both she and Galen must learn more about where she comes from and what her powers are before they can trust one another and their feelings.


  1. This sounds interesting. I hope he's not typical creepy stalker like some of the YA guys are now-a-days, haha (that made me sound 80 years old). I'll have to check it out from the library when it's released! Great pick!

    Here's my WoW!

  2. I so want to read this one. I have seen this one on some blogs, and can't wait to get it. Thanks for reminding me of this one!!

  3. I'm on the fence about this one, but I do have to admit that this cover is stunning! I hope my feelings about it will change and I'll eventually give it a go :)
