Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Title: Mistwalker by Saundra Mitchell
Genre: YA, Paranormal
Publisher: Harcourt
Release Date: Feb 4th 2014

When Willa Dixon’s brother dies on the family lobster boat, her father forbids Willa from stepping foot on the deck again. With her family suffering, she’ll do anything to help out—even visiting the Grey Man.

Everyone in her small Maine town knows of this legendary spirit who haunts the lighthouse, controlling the fog and the fate of any vessel within his reach. But what Willa finds in the lighthouse isn’t a spirit at all, but a young man trapped inside until he collects one thousand souls.

Desperate to escape his cursed existence, Grey tries to seduce Willa to take his place. With her life on land in shambles, will she sacrifice herself?
I'm excited to see how this story plays out!! (:

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?!

Wow that sounds intense. I'm normally not a fan of ghost stories or anything dealing with souls but still sounds good. Thanks for sharing.
