For as long as Esmerine can remember, she has longed to join her older sister, Dosinia, as a siren--the highest calling a mermaid can have. When Dosinia runs away to the mainland, Esmerine is sent to retrieve her. Using magic to transform her tail into legs, she makes her way unsteadily to the capital city. There she comes upon a friend she hasn't seen since childhood--a dashing young man named Alandare, who belongs to a winged race of people. As Esmerine and Alandare band together to search for Dosinia, they rekindle a friendship...and ignite the emotions for a love so great, it cannot be bound by sea, land, or air.
First off, the cover is absolutely gorgeous! And now the story! Two people from different worlds rebuilding a friendship that grows into love. One bound to the sea and the other bound to the air. It just sounds so romantic, and I'm eager to see how they will handle their impending separation once the task of finding Dosinia is complete. I am definitely curious to know why Esmerine's sister ran away. Here's hoping it will be a great story!
What are you waiting on this Wednesday? ^_^
