It looks like the most popular book was Lies Beneath. Several others were a close second, so I put the titles in a bowl and drew one out. Wormwood is the other book to read and review. To see the original post and book line-up: http://wp.me/p27ipo-aO

To decide which one to read first, I took Emaginette’s suggestion and drew one out of a bowl.

The first one up is Wormwood and I am tearing through it. It opens with a huge event and never really slows down. Can’t wait to tell you all about it!


Synopsis from Goodreads

Against a devastated landscape, a legion of one hundred fierce half-angels is hell-bent on purging Earth of all humans. But one of them, the tormented Tiamat, struggles against his mission, and when he rescues a beautiful woman named Kali, he finds the attraction as troubling as it is miraculous. Can Kali trust the one creature who could be responsible for her ultimate demise?

Beautifully written and excitingly told, Wormwood creates a world that is as strange as it is compelling. Filled with brilliantly executed twists and turns on every page that are guaranteed to keep you guessing, Wormwood is one of the most exciting debuts of the year.

Next up for review is Lies Beneath. I started this one once before, but had to set it aside to catch up on other things that were pressing. It has haunted me ever since.

Synopsis from Goodreads

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 a lot 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.

Both of these books hooked me in the first couple of paragraphs and I can tell you already that the writing is brilliant! I’ll be back with my reviews soon! Stay tuned.
