Waiting on Wednesday (10)

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

I've got quite a few reasons for wanting this book. For one thing, the book sounds interesting in its own right. We need more main characters faking their deaths, I think. Yet another thing I can like about the book is its cover, which still caught my eye despite the neutral tones because I wanted to see all the little details. There's also the fact that this is a vampire book and seeing that vampire books are still being published gives me some hope for my own vampire manuscript.

When the Sea is Rising RedWhen the Sea is Rising Red
by Cat Hellisen
February 28, 2012
288 pages (hardcover)


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.

I love hearing what others have to say about books and it makes me feel less like I'm talking to an empty auditorium, so comment away. Thank you for reading my blog post!
