I'm back from sunny Seattle (I can't believe I just said that!) and the brilliant weather got me in the mood to talk about WAKE, the first book in Amanda Hocking's new never-before-published YA paranormal romance series!
From a writer who needs no introduction comes the story of a girl-turned-siren and the new life, loves, and threats she faces while mastering her new siren powers.
io9 included WAKE on their list of "All The Science Fiction and Fantasy Books You Can’t Afford to Miss in August." They said, "August's new book releases are just packed with brilliant new ideas and thrilling stories, from some of the world's best writers." We agree!
And Booklist said, "[WAKE] effectively melds myth and contemporary teen life. High school, family, young love, and mythology all combine to create an easy-to-read paranormal suspense story that will have fans eagerly awaiting new installments."
Dive in (mermaid joke!) by watching the book trailer now:
WAKE will be available this month from St. Martin's Griffin. [...]
