You probably know by now that I love a good book cover! Recently I saw this amazing cover for a book coming out in June, Ashes on the Waves by Mary Lindsey. This book is based on Edgar Allen Poe’s poem Annabel Lee. “Liam MacGregor is cursed. Haunted by the wails of fantastical Bean Sidhes and labeled a demon by the villagers of Dòchas, Liam has accepted that things will never get better for him—until a wealthy heiress named Annabel Leighton arrives on the island and Liam’s fate is changed forever.”
Another water theme book I would recommend is The Brides of Rollrock Island by Margo Lanagan. Rollrock Island is isolated and ruled by the sea. The local witch can find the girl at the heart of the seal and bind her to the land and husband. But the long-term effects on the inhabitants aren’t understood until much later after heartbreak and loss. This book had the same timeless feel as The Scorpio Races, another island/water theme, so give if it try if you enjoyed Maggie Stiefvater’s book.
