Waiting on Wednesday #119 - Of Neptune and Embers & Ash

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Be sure to post a link to your Waiting on Wednesday below!

This week's pre-publication "We can't wait to read it!" selections are...

Author: Anna Banks
Release Date: May 13, 2014
Published by: Feiwel & Friends/MacMillan

Emma, half human and half Syrena, and her Syrena love, Galen, need time together alone. Away from the kingdoms of Poseidon and Triton. Emma's grandfather, the Poseidon king, suggests the two visit a small town called Neptune.

Neptune is home to both Syrena and Helf-breeds alike. But Emma and Galen didn't sign up to be peacemakers between the ocean and the land-dwelling, freshwater Syrena. They didn't bargain for meeting a charming Half-breed named Reed, who can barely disguise his feelings for Emma. And they especially didn't expect to find themselves in the middle of a power struggle that threatens not only their love but their ocean kingdoms. (Summary from Goodreads)

I can't wait to read the 3rd and final book Emma and Galen's trilogy! I've really enjoyed the discovery and adventure in the previous two books, so I look forward to read what Banks has come up with for this final book. I really hope it all works out for the couple.

Author: T.M. Goeglein

Published by: Putnam Juvenile

Sara Jane Rispoli is on the wrong side of the Russian mob, but closer to finding her family than ever.  And she's willing to do whatever it take to finally end this terrible journey even if the price is her own life.

The very cold fury that has seen her through the worst of her troubles is now killing her; she knows the cure, but she can't sacrifice the deadly electricity until she's rescued her family. But when she finally does rescue them, it's not the happy reunion she pictured. And the torment doesn't stop there, not even when she finally discovers Ultimate Power. Only destroying the Outfit completely can end this terrible nightmare.

Old enemies return to seek vengeance, double-crosses abound, and even more mysteries are uncovered as we rocket toward an end no one saw coming. (Summary from Goodreads)

Love this author and these books are just Chicago fun! I love that I know where all of the places are and that Sara Jane is one tough young lady indeed! I cannot wait to find out what she does next! How about you!?

What are you waiting on this week?
