So this is my first Waiting on Wednesday and this week I am looking forwards to receiving Fathomless! For those of you who dont know, Fathomless is book 3 in Jackson A. Pearce's amazing Fairytale retellings series and I adore this series so much. ANYway, Fathomless is book 3 and I am dying for it!

Sypnosis: Celia Reynolds is the youngest in a set of triplets and the one with the least valuable power. Anne can see the future, and Jane can see the present, but all Celia can see is the past. And the past seems so insignificant - until Celia meets Lo. Lo doesn't know who she is. Or who she was. Once a human, she is now almost entirely a creature of the sea - a nymph, an ocean girl, a mermaid - all terms too pretty for the soul-less monster she knows she's becoming. Lo clings to shreds of her former self, fighting to remember her past, even as she's tempted to embrace her dark immortality. When a handsome boy named Jude falls off a pier and into the ocean, Celia and Lo work together to rescue him from the waves. The two form a friendship, but soon they find themselves competing for Jude's affection. Lo wants more than that, though. According to the ocean girls, there's only one way for Lo to earn back her humanity. She must persuade a mortal to love her...and steal his soul.

Why am I crazy desperate in need of this book? Here's why; Pearce has this amazing world and all these beautiful tales we've been told as children have been completely remade. Also this series came out in sync with the whole Red Riding hood and Snow white and the huntsman time so they got a massive backing from those fairy tale retellings and and the retellings are still going with jack the giant killer and hansel and Gretel with hunters. I've always liked the idea of taking what people know and giving it a spin but this is more than that and this is why I must have this book. I think this one is a retelling of the Little mermaid and I'm so excited, because if you actually read the original grims fairy tales there actually a lot different to the tales were' told as kids and actually a lot more gruesome. Also *mutters rest under breath hoping no one hears* this fairy tales retelling series have werewolves playing a pretty main role in them.. so yeah, I'm raving for this book and if you haven't read this series you really should give it a go!
