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.
The Unquiet by Jeannine Garsee
Expected Publication: 2012
Expected Publication: 2012
Sixteen-year-old Rinn Jacobs has secrets: One, she’s bipolar. Two, she killed her grandmother.
After a suicide attempt, and now her parents' separation, Rinn and her mom move from California to the rural Ohio town where her mother grew up. Back on her medications (again!) and hoping to stay well, Rinn settles into her new home and school. She refuses to be daunted by the fact that the previous owner hanged herself in Rinn's bedroom, or that her classmates believe the school pool is haunted by Annaliese, a girl who drowned there. But when a reckless séance goes awry, and terrible things start happening to her new friends—yet not to her—Rinn is determined to find out why she can’t be "touched" by Annaliese...or if Annaliese even exists.
With the help of Nate Brenner, the hunky “farmer boy” she’s rapidly falling for, Rinn devises a dangerous plan to uncover the truth. Soon reality and fantasy meld into one, till Rinn finds it nearly impossible to tell the difference. When a malevolent force threatens the lives of everyone she cares about--not to mention her own--she can't help wondering: who should she really be afraid of?
Annaliese? Or herself?I added the last two to my wishlist, since I already have all the books in the Drake Chronicles. But! If you don't have them, or haven't read them, I suggest you buy Ruling Passion, it's all 3 books in one, which means you save a lot of money plus you get to read an incredibly entertaining story. The Unquiet reminds me of Hourglass, the main characters are similar on the surface, sort of crazy and seeing ghosts, but I don't think the plot line is going to be in any way similar. Of Poseidon, though it has an incredible cover, I don't know if they did the best job with the summary. It seems they want to tap the "romantic" in us, but what they are really doing is just annoying me. I mean, he has a whole kingdom, what is he trying to save his kingdom from? Nonetheless, it sounds interesting, so I will pick it up.
