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!

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!
