Cover Alert: Emily Windsnap and the Land of the Midnight Sun

Mermaids AND an Alaskan setting? Oh man! How could anything be better? Seriously.

If you've ever been the land of midnight sun, then you know how magical it is. The mirror like stillness of the azure colored water reflecting the towering glaciers from above is breathtaking. Now Liz Kessler is making Alaska the setting of the 6th book in her middle grades Emily Windsnap mermaid series.

The book will release in the UK in September 2012, but won't make its way to the US until Spring 2013.



Emily Windsnap and the Land of the Midnight Sun (Emily Windsnap #5)


Emily and Aaron are sent on a top secret mission by King Neptune. The king has been having nightmares he doesn't understand and he knows only that Emily and Aaron must go to the Land of the Midnight Sun to avoid catastrophe. But when the friends arrive in this icy world of mountains and glaciers, they uncover a mystery more dangerous than they ever imagined. With the help of her best friends and a brave heart can Emily survive and fulfil her mission?
 
 


 
I also think it's interesting that this is the only book in the series (so far) that does not feature a mermaid on the cover. Maybe there will be a different cover for the US book that will feature the tell-tale whimsical mermaid that I love (I sure hope so at least).

  1. WTF is what I was thinking the second I saw this cover! No mermaid tale, very different style than what I am used to. I am so curious to see if there will be a new cover for the US. Either way, it's lovely!

  2. I know! This book doesn't look anything like the others in the series. I actually had to do a double take. I think I would really like to see a mermaid in Alaska. Maybe with a polar bear or something? Ok, I'm obsessed, but really... there needs to be a tail on this cover!

  4. Heather,

    I cannot believe you haven't seen this series! It's been around for ages! But then again, I probably wouldn't know about it either had I not bought some of the books for my classroom. Having two boys keeps me out of the girly book club.

This week's question: Do you have any furry friends?


These are my fur babies: 

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather. 

Review: The Search for Delicious

Summary from Amazon: Gaylen, the King’s messenger, a skinny boy of twelve, is off to poll the kingdom, traveling from town to farmstead to town on his horse, Marrow. At first it is merely a question of disagreement at the royal castle over which food should stand for Delicious in the new dictionary. But soon it seems that the search for Delicious had better succeed if civil war is to be avoided.


Gaylen’s quest leads him to the woldweller, a wise, 900-year-old creature who lives alone at the precise center of the forest; to Canto, the minstrel who sings him an old song about a mermaid child and who gives him a peculiar good-luck charm; to the underground domain of the dwarfs; and finally to Ardis who might save the kingdom from havoc.

My Review: I love this book! It is such a fun, easy, and enjoyable r…

The Winner's Crime ( Marie Rutkoski)

Book two of the dazzling Winner's Trilogy is a fight to the death as Kestrel risks betrayal of country for love.

The engagement of Lady Kestrel to Valoria’s crown prince means one celebration after another. But to Kestrel it means living in a cage of her own making. As the wedding approaches, she aches to tell Arin the truth about her engagement... if she could only trust him. Yet can she even trust herself? For—unknown to Arin—Kestrel is becoming a skilled practitioner of deceit: an anonymous spy passing information to Herran, and close to uncovering a shocking secret.

As Arin enlists dangerous allies in the struggle to keep his country’s freedom, he can’t fight the suspicion that Kestrel knows more than she shows. In the end, it might not be a dagger in the dark that cuts him open, but the truth. And when that happens, Kestrel and Arin learn just how much their crimes will cost them.
