Lies Beneath by Anne Greenwood Brown
I know, I'm not supposed to be reviewing this yet because
A-It hasn't come out yet.
B-It still hasn't come out yet.(Release Date: June 12 2012)
But I want to help them publishers get some buzz. This book has an intresting premise(A merman!). And an intresting ending(you'll have to read it for that one).
What I liked about this Book:
The beginning. I have some serious first paragraph envy.
What I *Cough* Hated about this Book:
Lily goes from completely being freaked out by Calder, to liking him within a few pages.
A dream sequence that is not really defined. I thought he was still dreaming after he woke up, I might have missed something.
Here's the Blurb:
Calder White lives in the cold, clear waters of Lake Superior, the only brother in a family of murderous mermaids. To survive, Calder and his sisters prey on humans, killing them to absorb their energy. But this summer the underwater clan targets Jason Hancock out of pure revenge. They blame Hancock for their mother's death and have been waiting a long time for him to return to his family's homestead on the lake. Hancock has a fear of water, so to lure him in, Calder sets out to seduce Hancock's daughter, Lily. Easy enough—especially as Calder has lots of practice using his irresistable good looks and charm on ususpecting girls. Only this time Calder screws everything up: he falls for Lily—just as Lily starts to suspect that there's more to the monsters-in-the-lake legends than she ever imagined. And just as his sisters are losing patience with him.
I give this Book Three Stars. I will be reading the series.
I recieved this book via NetGalley.
