Celia Reynolds is the youngest in a set of triplets and the one with the least valuable power. Anne can see the future, and Jane can see the present, but all Celia can see is the past. And the past seems so insignificant — until Celia meets Lo.

Lo doesn’t know who she is. Or who she was. Once a human, she is now almost entirely a creature of the sea — a nymph, an ocean girl, a mermaid — all terms too pretty for the soulless monster she knows she’s becoming. Lo clings to shreds of her former self, fighting to remember her past, even as she’s tempted to embrace her dark immortality.

When a handsome boy named Jude falls off a pier and into the ocean, Celia and Lo work together to rescue him from the waves. The two form a friendship, but soon they find themselves competing for Jude’s affection. Lo wants more than that, though. According to the ocean girls, there’s only one way for Lo to earn back her humanity. She must persuade a mortal to love her . . . and steal his soul.

I was fortunate enough to end up with an extra ARC of Fathomless by Jackson Pearce, which means I’d love to offer the opportunity to read it to one of you!  I have yet to read any of Jackson Pearce’s fairy tale retellings, but I’m quite excited to read both Fathomless and Sweetly.  I just wish they hadn’t changed the covers!  I adored the old cover art on Sisters Red and Sweetly, and was pretty disappointed when Fathomless took a different direction.

I had the opportunity to meet Jackson Pearce at BEA, she’s so incredibly sweet, and promised me there would be both kissing and killing!  So who wants to miss out on that?

Giveaway rules:

  • Must be 13 years or older.
  • US only (sorry I can’t afford international shipping at this time).
  • You have 48 hours to respond to my e-mail, or another winner will be chosen.
  • Winner will be chosen Sunday, August 5th.  Though I’m going camping next weekend, so any entries before I get home Sunday evening will count! 

Good luck, everyone!  I hope you enjoy.

Entries for this giveaway are closed, and the winner is Justine, grats!

    I’m just commenting because I didn’t think I’d heard of this author but as soon as you mentioned the Sisters Red cover I remembered I’d seen the original and they definitely shouldn’t have changed it!

  2. I obviously can’t enter this, but I still wanted to say something. Here’s what I know about Jackson Pearce: she’s friends with Maggie Stiefvater. Here’s what I NEED to know about Jackson PEarce: she’s friends with Maggie Stiefvater. I’ll definitely be reading this. I’ve been avoiding her so far because I don’t really like retellings, but this is different.

    • Heidi says:

      Hehe, I hope that she lives up to your expectations through her relation to Stiefvater! I haven’t read any of her work yet either, but I’ve MEANT to, because I do really like retellings. She also has her contemp, Purity, which you may enjoy more, but I’ve stayed away from it as I’m pretty sure it’s not for me.

  3. Love fairy tale retellings, and this one seems like a spin on the mermaid thing I might actually enjoy. Jackson Pearce does seem like such a fun person. And I totally agree on the original cover art for Sisters Red being so much better than this. That style is so much more eye catching!

    • Heidi says:

      I know, right? Grrr.

      But YES, Jackson Pearce is totally fun in person, and I hope to see that reflected in her work. I haven’t read any mermaid books yet, but I’m thinking this is one I might enjoy. I do love The Little Mermaid, after all!

  4. I have yet to read any Jackson Pearce and I DON’T KNOW WHY. Seriously, all of her books sound appealing and I want to read them…I just haven’t. Sigh.

    Also, yay camping! I love camping and am going in a few weeks. Have fun!

    • Heidi says:

      Yay! I love camping too, it’s my favorite thing about summer (yeah…I’m not much of a beach girl).

      I don’t know why I haven’t read any Jackson Pearce yet either! Especially when I’ve had many people recommend Sweetly to me. I’ll certainly be reading Fathomless.

  5. Grace says:

    Oooh, this looks like a fun book. Fairy tale retellings make me happy.

  6. Alyssa says:

    I already have this one so I’m not entering BUT you should read this one, I think it was my favorite of the three and it made me want more. Sweetly was also pretty fabulous and they’re quick reads! Also, wasn’t Jackson Pearce so sweet? It really made me love her books more because she was so incredibly nice.

    • Heidi says:

      YES, she was awesome, and I’m sure I’ll be thinking of that in the back of my mind while I read. I do plan to read this one, hopefully before it releases!

  7. I haven’t read any of her fairy tale retellings yet either but I want to. I liked Purity.
    I always get a little bummed when the covers change and aren’t cohesive. WHY WHY WHY?? The other two are hauntingly lovely.

    • Heidi says:

      I know! I hate when they change covers mid series, and I really didn’t like this one at all. I’m not sure why they thought this was better.
