Cover Alert: Deep Betrayal (Lies Beneath #2)

I love mermaid stories! Plain and simple. So I spent a little bit of time today stalking the virtual shelves compiling a list of MG-friendly merstories for a friend's daughter. While I was doing that, I came across the cover for Deep Betrayal (Lies Beneath #2). How this beauty escaped my radar until now, I have NO idea, but I can safely say that I LOVE IT. I loved Lies Beneath and marked Deep Betrayal as a "to read" on Goodreads before I finished book 1. I can't wait until March 2013 to get here so I can continue Calder's story.

If you haven't read Lies Beneath, you can read my 4 star review HERE (and then go get a copy for yourself).




Deep Betrayal (Lies Beneath #2)
It's been thirty days, two hours, and seventeen minutes since Calder left Lily standing on the shores of Lake Superior. Not that she's counting. And when Calder does return, it's not quite the reunion Lily hoped for. Especially after she lets her father in on a huge secret: he, like Calder, is a merman. Obsessed with his new identity, Lily's dad monopolizes Calder's time as the two of them spend every day in the water, leaving Lily behind.

Then dead bodies start washing ashore. Calder blames his mermaid sisters, but Lily fears her father has embraced the merman's natural need to kill. As the body count grows, everyone is pointing fingers. Lily doesn't know what to believe—only that whoever's responsible is sure to strike again. . . .
 


What do you think? It doesn't seem like a merfolk story at all when you look at the cover! I think that's one of the things that I like the most about it. Not to mention the obvious play on words with the titles: LIES Beneath.... What lies beneath the water's depths? What lies can you find beneath the water's edge? eh, eh?  and now we have Deep Betrayal. Again, an allusion to water's depth but so much more!

  1. I also loved Lies Beneath. And I can't wait to read Deep Betrayal and find out what is next for Calder and Lily.

  2. I read that this one was from Lily's point of view. But given the last book, I would think this location would be the most dangerous for them to be in considering who lies beneath. I'm glad I saw this so I can mark it to buy! Can't wait to read it myself!

These are my fur babies: 

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather. 

Review: The Search for Delicious

The Search for Delicious Natalie Babbitt
Product Details

Reading level: Young Adult
Paperback: 192 pages
Publisher: Square Fish (August 21, 2007)

Summary from Amazon: Gaylen, the King’s messenger, a skinny boy of twelve, is off to poll the kingdom, traveling from town to farmstead to town on his horse, Marrow. At first it is merely a question of disagreement at the royal castle over which food should stand for Delicious in the new dictionary. But soon it seems that the search for Delicious had better succeed if civil war is to be avoided.


Gaylen’s quest leads him to the woldweller, a wise, 900-year-old creature who lives alone at the precise center of the forest; to Canto, the minstrel who sings him an old song about a mermaid child and who gives him a peculiar good-luck charm; to the underground domain of the dwarfs; and finally to Ardis who might save the kingdom from havoc.

My Review: I love this book! It is such a fun, easy, and enjoyable r…

The Winner's Crime ( Marie Rutkoski)

Book two of the dazzling Winner's Trilogy is a fight to the death as Kestrel risks betrayal of country for love.

The engagement of Lady Kestrel to Valoria’s crown prince means one celebration after another. But to Kestrel it means living in a cage of her own making. As the wedding approaches, she aches to tell Arin the truth about her engagement... if she could only trust him. Yet can she even trust herself? For—unknown to Arin—Kestrel is becoming a skilled practitioner of deceit: an anonymous spy passing information to Herran, and close to uncovering a shocking secret.

As Arin enlists dangerous allies in the struggle to keep his country’s freedom, he can’t fight the suspicion that Kestrel knows more than she shows. In the end, it might not be a dagger in the dark that cuts him open, but the truth. And when that happens, Kestrel and Arin learn just how much their crimes will cost them.
