I found this a couple of days ago and I absolutely loved it. Sounds very interesting, I can’t wait to see what happens. I don’t know what I would have done if I was being bullied at school. I probably would have let it continue b/c I’m such a nice person and I don’t like being mean. So I’m looking forward to see how she overcomes it, well if she does I have no clue b/c I haven’t read it :) Now on to the cover, it speaks to me. There is no other word for it. It draws the eye, very appealing. Looking very forward to October, it can’t come soon enough.
Ananna of the Tanarau is the eldest daughter of a highly-ranked family in the loose assortment of cutthroats and thieves in the Pirate's Confederation. When she runs away from the marriage her parents have arranged for her, they hire Naji the assassin to murder her.
When a mysterious woman in a dress shop offers her magical assistance for dealing with the assassin, Ananna accepts. She never went in much for magic herself -- she lacks the talent for it -- but she's not quite ready to die yet, either. Unfortunately, the woman's magic fails.
Fortunately, Ananna inadvertently saves the assassin's life in the skirmish, thus activating a curse that had been placed on him a few years earlier. Now, whenever her life is in danger, he must protect her -- or else he experiences tremendous physical pain. Neither Ananna nor the assassin, Naji, are pleased about this development.
Follow Ananna and Naji as they sail across the globe, visiting such mysterious places as the Court of Salt and Waves, in their desperate effort to lift the curse. Soon they will discover that only by completing three impossible tasks will they be able to set themselves free.
I read an ARC of this book yesterday and i loved it. This book doesn't come out until October of this year. And while, i will purchase this when it comes out (pre-order on amazon. muahaha), My real wishlist book is the sequel to it. There is no Cover or description yet, but i cannot wait for it to come out next year. It is called The Pirate's Wish. I can't wait to see what happens with Ananna and Naji! heck, i have to wait for the first one to even come out before i can purchase it. i have to wait FOREVER tor the second half of the duology. *sigh* (I will be posting a review of this, by the way. haven't had a chance to write it yet.)
