Overview

Fans of Amanda Hocking's novel, Wake, will dive into this paranormal romance featuring mermaids—the killer kind—and won't come up for air!

 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. . . . 

"Deep Betrayal is as suspenseful as it is sexy. You'll want to catch this one!"—MaryJanice Davidson, New York Times bestselling author of the Undead series

"Heartbreaking. Nerve-racking. Absolutely irresistible."—Kristen Simmons, author of the Article 5 series

Gr 9 Up—In this sequel to Lies Beneath (Delacorte, 2012), Lily is reeling from the recent events in her life. She has been dragged away from her friends and school after a brush with death. The boy she might love is a merman, and her family has a dark and troubled past with these creatures of the deep that live in the waters of the Great Lakes. Her father is about to find out that he, too, can transform, and once he does, their lives will never be the same. But deep within Lake Superior lies a deadly force, and when swimmers report attacks and turn up dead, family friend Jack is quick to campaign against the merfolk. Publicity, bad or good, is something they can't afford. Fast paced and filled with twisty turns, this story will appeal to readers who enjoyed this new take on a paranormal romance in the first book. Others will find it too difficult to catch up with the extensive mythology of these aquatic creatures.—Genevieve Gallagher, Charlottesville High School, VA
