Waiting on Lies Beneath

Yessss! I love mermaid stories.


Lies Beneath
by Anne Greenwood Brown
Delacorte Books for Young Readers
June 2012

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.

  3. I've never read a mermaid-ish story but like someone already said, there seems to be a lot coming out this year. Lies Beneath sounds great, along with Vicious Deep & Of Poseidon--I have so many books to read! D:

    Here's my Waiting on Wednesday :)

  7. I'm not really a mermaid person at all, but Lies Beneath sounds intense! Which intrigues me :)

  8. Oh man, I was scarred by Ripple, which is a Siren YA. Maybe a mermaid book will help heal the wounds? But I might side with Poseidon first... will have to wait for your review!

    1. Yikes! I liked Lost Voices - about some murderous teen girl mermaids. Lies Beneath sounds a little bit along those lines.
