On My Wishlist...


One Salt Sea by Seanan McGuire
TBP: Sept. 6, 2011

From Goodreads:
October “Toby” Daye is settling into her new role as Countess of Goldengreen. She's actually dating again, and she's taken on Quentin as her squire. So, of course, it's time for things to take a turn for the worse.  
Someone has kidnapped the sons of the regent of the Undersea Duchy of Saltmist. To prevent a war between land and sea, Toby must find the missing boys and prove the Queen of the Mists was not behind their abduction. Toby's search will take her from the streets of San Francisco to the lands beneath the waves, and her deadline is firm: she must find the boys in three days' time, or all of the Mists will pay the price. But someone is determined to stop her — and whoever it is isn't playing by Oberon's Laws...
*looks innocent* Yes... I need to get the first 4 books in the series starting with Rosemary and Rue (October Daye, Book 1). It's not like I do it necessarily on purpose, *nervous laugh* but just look at the cover! It's a mermaid! I love mermaid stories and this one looks like it is combined with the darker world of UF. Oh I needs it... even if it is the middle of the series. *shy smile*

Uh... so what are your ~I shouldn't want it yet before I read the rest of the series~ wishlist books this week? ;D

  2. I have the first in the series and I WILL read it at some point (I do feel a little like a broken record saying that all the time)...but I agree this cover is gorgeous! :-)

  9. Mermaid, San Francisco...go for it! Mermaids are quite the trend in 2011, aren't they?

  10. I have the same problem. I get caught in a book cover and want to read it, then realize it's book #9 - Tess Monaghan and James Patterson, Women's Murder Club. Oh there's many!

    My Wishlist!!

  12. That's a gorgeous cover, and I love the idea of this Undersea Dutchy off of San Francisco. I'm adding this series to my wish list!

  13. I have wished for books in the middle of a series before too. With things calming down, I have managed to get back to my wishlist. Come see what I'm wishing for.

  14. I don't know, with the mention of Oberon, I might want to start at the beginning. Do you know who's on the first book? *checking* Okay, you have to start with the first one! She spent 14 years as a fish!! Please read it and review it for me. It's not YA and my piles are having pile babies, but have to know. That's just too good to pass up!

  15. Hm... Heather makes an interesting point. I'm getting the first, but now just need time to read it. Oh and the rest of you are baaadddd! Encouraging my bad habit. No wonder I like you all. ;D

  16. What? That's a mermaid... in a leather jacket!

    Wow! Bathing suits sure have changed since the seashell bra days, huh?

  17. What? You mean you're not going to start with this one, you're actually going to read from the beginning? I don't believe you;)

    I haven't read very many mermaid stories so I have to say I'm very intrigued:) Thanks for sharing Melissa!
