I Can't Wait for... Songs from the Deep by Kelly Powell & Chasing the Shadows by Maria V. Snyder (Can't-Wait Wednesday/Waiting on Wednesday) #CWW #WOW

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here, at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. If you're continuing with WOW, feel free to link those up as well! Find out more here.

I've been so swamped guys that I haven't made it over to see everyone's picks the past two weeks. I hope to get to it this week, but if I don't, it's not for lack of desire. It's just really busy with the kids all in sports and me working part-time.

Songs from the Deep came across my radar one day when I was browsing books. It sounds really intriguing and nothing like other books I've read with sirens. I have a review copy, so I'm hoping I'll love it. I reviewed Navigating the Stars last year and have been anticipating the sequel. I've been a little frustrating because it seems it's not being sold in the US at this time and I'd like to continue the series. If you're outside the US and can get this one, I have to admit that I'm a little envious. These are my picks this week...

Songs from the Deep
By Kelly Powell
YA Fantasy
Hardcover & ebook, 304 Pages
November 5th 2019 by Margaret K. McElderry Books


A girl searches for a killer on an island where deadly sirens lurk just beneath the waves in this gripping, atmospheric debut novel.

The sea holds many secrets.

Moira Alexander has always been fascinated by the deadly sirens who lurk along the shores of her island town. Even though their haunting songs can lure anyone to a swift and watery grave, she gets as close to them as she can, playing her violin on the edge of the enchanted sea. When a young boy is found dead on the beach, the islanders assume that he's one of the sirens’ victims. Moira isn’t so sure.

Certain that someone has framed the boy’s death as a siren attack, Moira convinces her childhood friend, the lighthouse keeper Jude Osric, to help her find the real killer, rekindling their friendship in the process. With townspeople itching to hunt the sirens down, and their own secrets threatening to unravel their fragile new alliance, Moira and Jude must race against time to stop the killer before it’s too late—for humans and sirens alike.

Chasing the Shadows
(Sentinels of the Galaxy #2)
By Maria V. Snyder
YA SciFi
Paperback & ebook
November 18th 2019 by HarperCollins Australia


New York Times bestselling author Maria V. Snyder returns with the next page-turning instalment of the new sci-fi series: Sentinels of the Galaxy 

Year 2522. Lyra Daniels is dead.

Okay, so I only died for sixty-six seconds. But when I came back to life, I got a brand new name and a snazzy new uniform. Go me! Seriously, though, it's very important that Lyra Daniels stays dead, at least as far as my ex-friend Jarren, the murdering looter, knows.

While dying is the scariest thing that's happened to me, it morphed my worming skills. I can manipulate the Q-net like never before. But Jarren has blocked us from communicating with the rest of the galaxy and now they believe we've gone silent, like Planet Xinji (where silent really means dead).

A Protector Class spaceship is coming to our rescue, but we still have to survive almost two years before they arrive - if they arrive at all. Until then, we have to figure out how to stop an unstoppable alien threat. And it's only a matter of time before Jarren learns I'm not dead and returns to finish what he started.

There's no way I'm going to let Jarren win. Instead I'll do whatever it takes to save the people I love. But even I'm running out of ideas...
