Weekend Book Give-Away: Waking Storms


In case you haven't noticed, there is a serious mermaid trend going on it teen lit right now.  Why mermaids?  I don't have a theory yet, but as someone who LOVES swimming and hasn't been able to for months now due to an injury, I totally get the longing some readers might have for the water.  Really, swimming is the next best thing to flying...and mermaids don't have to worry about pesky trips to the surface to breath, right?

So this week's book is and advance reader copy of the in-demand (5 holds as we speak) sequel to Lost Voices by Sarah Porter: Waking Storms.

As a mermaid versus human war looms on the horizon, Luce falls in love with her sworn enemy Dorian and assumes her rightful role as queen of the mermaids. 
Here is a cheesy trailer if you weren't sold yet:

My theory of why sworn enemies are so attractive is because the author wants the plot to be exciting and have a twist. Also I've noticed that a lot of the popular books have star crossed lovers.
