  3. Ahhhh. Promiss you'll make the contest international? :( I'd love so much to win an ARC of Forbidden Sea. Really. I've been waiting for months, because the publisher could not ship to outside the US and so. This cover is so gorgeous!!!

  4. Whoa..That's scary! But have to admit, the cover makes the book such a must grab!

  5. Raila: I wish I could. Shipping is brutal! Did you enter my birthday contest? It's international ;) and the BookDepository does appear to carry the Forbidden Sea.

    Mel: :) I'm heading over now :)

  9. Awesome teaser! And I love your blog post title. Heh, Killer Mermaid would be a great band name...if I had a band and could play an instrument.

  10. Andrea: LOL That would be an awesome band name! :)

    Kathy: I'm obsessed with sea creatures ;)

  12. Doesn't it just suck that BD doesn't ship to Brazil? Yeah, it does! Hate it. :( But I understand you.

  13. Well, I hope that Marcus gets away...and that the mermaid works on her aggression issues. Nice teaser!

    Thanks for visiting mine, too!

  26. Marce and Linna: Me too! I think it because I honestly feel that if there's any magic left...it's in the ocean :)

  30. Ooh, that's bone-chilling. Yet I'm very curious!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Excellent teaser! Plus, I like the cover, it's kind of ominous. :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I last read Keeper by Alpeit. It's a middle grade book with 400 pages to boot! Too much and a bit draggy with not enough mermaid to make things interesting.

    This one sounds much much better! :o)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I really, REALLY want to read this what a pretty cover

    ReplyDelete
  34. 1stdaughter: I've never heard of that one. I need to look in to it. Or maybe I shouldn't, huh? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Ooh, very creepy teaser. I'm a fan of mermaids, though, so I'll have to add this one to my wishlist. Are you enjoying it?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Lizzy: My review posts tomorrow. It was really good :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. I reviewed it not too long ago here: Keeper by Kathi Appelt
