Waiting on Wednesday


"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, originally started by Jill at Breaking the Spine , that highlights upcoming book releases everyone is waiting on...hence the title. This week's pick is Revel by Maurissa Guibord.  Here's the synopsis:

There’s an island off the coast of Maine that’s not on any modern map.

Shrouded in mist and protected by a deadly reef, Trespass Island is home to a community of people who guard the island and its secrets from outsiders. Seventeen-year-old Delia grew up in Kansas, but has come here in search of her family and answers to her questions: Why didn’t her mother ever talk about Trespass Island? Why did she fear the open water? But Delia’s not welcome and soon finds herself enmeshed in a frightening and supernatural world where ancient Greek symbols adorn the buildings and secret ceremonies take place on the beach at night.

Sean Gunn, a handsome young lobsterman, befriends Delia and seems willing to risk his life to protect her. But it’s Jax, the coldly elusive young man she meets at the water’s edge, who finally makes Delia understand the real dangers of life on the island. Delia is going to have to fight to survive. Because there are monsters here. And no one ever leaves Trespass alive.

I've never read a book by Maurissa Guibord but this one sounds right up my street.  A little island? Check.  Secrets? Check.  Greek mythology? Check.  I am totally sold on the synopsis and if Angie Frazier (author of Everlasting) loves it then I know I am going to love it too!  Adding to my wish list immediately.  

Revel is published on 12th February, 2013 with no UK release information as of yet.

  1. I wonder what the secret monsters are-the water immediately makes me think mermaids or sirens but there are loads of different things it could be and it will be interesting to find out what they are. Cool pick!
