Wishlist Wednesday: Lies Beneath

Lies Beneath by Anne Greenwood Brown
Killer Mermaids!, pages unknown
Expected publication: June 12th 2012 by Delacorte Press

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 irresistible good looks and charm on unsuspecting 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.(less)

If you don't know, I'm a Michigander.  So a book about A GROUP OF ASSASSIN MERMAIDS LIVING IN LAKE SUPERIOR kinda has me all sorts of geeked out.  And it's a 2012 debut (apocalypsies, woot!).  So I cannot wait to get my hands on this one, and I just hope it is nice and twisted-weird, and not run-of-the-mill YA PNR blahdeeblah.
Fingers crossed.

What are you wishing and hoping and squeeing for this week?


  1. That sounds awesome!! I've always loved mermaids (not some much murdering mermaids but still XD) so I definitely want to read that.

  2. Had not heard of this one. Lies Beneath sounds like it could be all kinds of awesome! Adding to my to read list.

  3. Oh, my! That does sound like fun in a twisted-weird way. I'm going to have to add this one to my own wishlist now!

  4. Dang, I was hoping that Calder was gonna seduce Jason. Much cooler idea, IMO. It dose sound cool, and since I'm from Wisconsin, I'm also able to relate to it.

  5. This book looks amazing! Thanks for sharing it.

  6. Good cover. Well, last year I read a novel about killer unicorns, so could killer mermaids be far behind?! This one, I've gotta see.

  7. Mermaids! This one sounds amazing and the cover is gorgeous. Definitely a great choice for the wish list.


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
