From Goodreads: 

Can you hear Atlantia breathing?

For as long as she can remember, Rio has dreamt of the sand and sky Above—of life beyond her underwater city of Atlantia. But in a single moment, all her plans for the future are thwarted when her twin sister, Bay, makes an unexpected decision, stranding Rio Below. Alone, ripped away from the last person who knew Rio’s true self—and the powerful siren voice she has long hidden—she has nothing left to lose.

Guided by a dangerous and unlikely mentor, Rio formulates a plan that leads to increasingly treacherous questions about her mother’s death, her own destiny, and the complex system constructed to govern the divide between land and sea. Her life and her city depend on Rio to listen to the voices of the past and to speak long-hidden truths.

This cover is gorgeous!  We love Ally Condie and her Matched series, and we can't wait to see where she takes us next!

What book are you waiting to get your hands on?


  1. That cover is beautiful, but I'm still kind of on the fence about this one. I liked Matched, but I never finished the rest of the series . . . but I really am a sucker for a pretty cover, and I LOVE anything to do with Atlanti(s)a, so I don't know who I'm trying to kid ;) Great pick!

  2. I had some mixed thoughts about Matched, but I liked it overall. This one sounds interesting! And that cover is definitely lovely. I don't know why I haven't come across it before! :)

  3. I loved the Matched books, and I am looking forward to another book from Condi. Great pick.

  5. I enjoyed her Matched books too (especially the first two) so I'm really curious about this one as well. Mermaids!!! :D I hope you can get your hands on it soon! Great pick ^^

  6. You know I have some issues with Matched but this does sound good and I don't read many books with the whole underwater them so that would be a fun aspect. Love the cover. Great pick.

  7. I need to share this with my oldest..she loved the Match series!

  8. The cover is simple, yet beautiful. I haven't read any of her books, but people seem to really like this. This certainly sounds interesting.

  9. This is a cover that definitely catches the reader's attention! Sounds like a great book. :)

    Thanks for sharing!
