Ready for some mermaids? Today’s featured book is MONSTROUS BEAUTY, a YA fantasy novel being released this week by author Elizabeth Fama (who also wrote Overboard, an American Library Association Best Book for Young Adults). See what you think, and comment to be entered to win a copy!
ABOUT THE BOOK: Fierce, seductive mermaid Syrenka falls in love with Ezra, a young naturalist. When she abandons her life underwater for a chance at happiness on land, she is unaware that this decision comes with horrific and deadly consequences. Almost one hundred forty years later, seventeen-year-old Hester meets a mysterious stranger named Ezra and feels overwhelmingly, inexplicably drawn to him. For generations, love has resulted in death for the women in her family. Is it an undiagnosed genetic defect . . . or a curse? With Ezra’s help, Hester investigates her family’s strange, sad history. The answers she seeks are waiting in the graveyard, the crypt, and at the bottom of the ocean—but powerful forces will do anything to keep her from uncovering her connection to Syrenka and to the tragedy of so long ago.
Want to win a copy of Monstrous Beauty? Just tell me your favorite book featuring mermaids or merpeople. Of course, I’m prejudiced since my upcoming release RIVER ROAD features some merpeople. There are also some interesting mers in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
You know the drill, my gilled friends: one entry for comment, a second for blog follow, third for Twitter follow @Suzanne_Johnson, and a fourth for a tweet or retweet. (Please note this giveaway is for a trade paperback ARC of Monstrous Beauty, not the final hardback release, and features a different cover than the one pictured above.)
