Matthew has loved Ariel from the moment he found her in the tunnels, her bee's wings falling away. They live in Safe, an underground refuge for those fleeing the city Above--like Whisper, who speaks to ghosts, and Jack Flash, who can shoot lightning from his fingers.
But one terrifying night, an old enemy invades Safe with an army of shadows, and only Matthew, Ariel, and a few friends escape Above. As Matthew unravels the mystery of Safe's history and the shadows' attack, he realizes he must find a way to remake his home--not just for himself, but for Ariel, who needs him more than ever before.
Why I'm Waiting:  First of all, the main character's name is Ariel. The Little Mermaid is one of my favourite Disney movies ever. And I love Disney... The cover is one of the best I've ever seen and the premise is fascinating. I also love the fact that the synopsis isn't hiding the fact that there will be an emphasis on romance and that Ariel may not be the strongest heroine. It's nice to be told the truth sometimes, you know??

Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath, where immortals Feed on the emotions of despairing humans. Now she's returned- to her old life, her family, her friends- before being banished back to the underworld... this time forever. She has six months before the Everneath comes to claim her, six months for good-byes she can't find the words for, six months to find redemption, if it exists. Nikki longs to spend these months reconnecting with her boyfriend, Jack, the one person she loves more than anything. But there's a problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who first enticed her to the Everneath, has followed Nikki to the mortal world. And he'll do whatever it takes to bring her back- this time as his queen. As Nikki's time grows short and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she's forced to make the hardest decision of her life: find a way to cheat fate and remain on the Surface with Jack or return to the Everneath and become Cole's...

Why I’m Waiting: This sounds crazy insane. I really really hope we find out why it was Nikki chosen in the first place. I can't wait for this, it sounds fascinating and really different... Ohhh, come on 2012! I know we're all going to apparently die, but there are SO many good books, and that's so much more important...
