Wishlist Wednesday #22

Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly book blog hop hosted by Dani at Pen to Paper where we will post about a book that has been on our wishlist for some time, or just added, that we can't wait to get off the wishlist and onto our bookshelves.

I really want this book! I love mermaid type books- and this book sounds fierce and vicious, plus I've seen some fantastic reviews of it. 

Fierce, seductive mermaid Syrenka falls in love with Ezra, a young naturalist. When she abandons her life underwater for a chance at happiness on land, she is unaware that this decision comes with horrific and deadly consequences.

Almost one hundred forty years later, seventeen-year-old Hester meets a mysterious stranger named Ezra and feels overwhelmingly, inexplicably drawn to him. For generations, love has resulted in death for the women in her family. Is it an undiagnosed genetic defect . . . or a curse? With Ezra’s help, Hester investigates her family’s strange, sad history. The answers she seeks are waiting in the graveyard, the crypt, and at the bottom of the ocean—but powerful forces will do anything to keep her from uncovering her connection to Syrenka and to the tragedy of so long ago.

Some reviews of this book:

Jen at The Starry-Eyed Revue 5 of 5 stars
Arlene at Winter Haven Books 5 of 5 stars
Sam at Realm of Fiction 4 of 5 stars
Lea at LC's Adventures in Libraryland 4.5 of 5 stars
Giselle at Xpresso Reads 4 of 5 stars

It's due to be published in more affordable paperback in September 2013, so I may have to wait until then.
Has anybody else read it? What did you think? 
Thanks for stopping by!

  9. I read this one last year, and it was pretty good. I'm not really a fan of mermaids though, so it'll probably be better to you!
