Posted by

Exclusively titled for Xpresso Reads, Fresh Batch features the hottest releases of this upcoming week.

Flavor of the week:

Ashes on the Waves
Mary Lindsey
Publication date: June 27th, 2013
by Philomel/Penguin

Liam MacGregor is cursed. Haunted by the wails of fantastical Bean Sidhes and labeled a demon by the villagers of Dòchas, Liam has accepted that things will never get better for him—until a wealthy heiress named Annabel Leighton arrives on the island and Liam’s fate is changed forever.

With Anna, Liam finally finds the happiness he has always been denied; but, the violent, mythical Otherworlders, who inhabit the island and the sea around it, have other plans. They make awager on the couple’s love, testing its strength through a series of cruel obstacles. But the tragedies draw Liam and Anna even closer. Frustrated, the creatures put the couple through one last trial—and this time it’s not only their love that’s in danger of being destroyed.

Based on Edgar Allan Poe’s chilling poem, “Annabel Lee,” Mary Lindsey creates a frighteningly beautiful gothic novel that glorifies the power of true love.

    I cannot wait for Ashes on the Waves the cover and synopsis have me hooked. I’m soon to read Confessions of an Almost Girlfriend- Angry Girl was suprisingly good. Ink was a huge disppointment, despite the gorgeous cover.

    Thanks for sharing, Giselle! <33

    Ashes on the Waves is SO good. I got an ARC as part of the blog tour, but I’m totally buying a hardcover. It’s THAT good and worth owning.

    Ooooh Ashes on the Waves…pretty. I want it. And I LOVE Edgar Allen Poe so I hope this does him justice *crosses fingers* And one of my absolute favorite covers in recent memory: Weather Witch ♥ I was really hoping it would have as much inner beauty but a few reviews have got me worried o.O We’ll see soon enough I guess, it’s my next ebook read lol Another case of pretty cover expectations seems to be Ink, so my near future reading wise has a few scary prospects! Of to check out Neptune’s Tears & the Wintercraft Series – thanks for yet again adding to my buckling TBR shelf(in advance) >.<
