LULLABY by Amanda Hocking
Harper only wanted a
safe, normal life. But when her younger sister Gemma runs off with a
dangerous clique of beautiful girls, Penn, Thea, and Lexi, everything
changes. Vowing to get her sister back no matter what the cost, Harper
must face dangers unlike any she's ever experienced. Fortunately, she
has Daniel by her side, a gorgeous guy who's devoted to helping her find
her sister—and who's immune to the girls' dark powers.
Harper searches for her sister, Gemma struggles to adjust to her new
life. Gemma's powers are growing by the day, and the longer she lives
with her new "sisters," the harder it is to resist entering their
magical world. It's a realm both dark and beautiful, and where she's
plagued by strange hungers and unspeakable needs. Just as she's
drifting far away from her old life, Harper and Daniel find her...but
no one can deny how much she's changed. All she wants is to return to
her family and the mortal world, but how can she do that when she's
become something else entirely—and will they still love her once they
learn the truth?
I recently read the first book in this series, Wake, and loved it. Hocking has developed a world where mer-creatures aren't what you think they are, and I enjoyed the break from the typical. This second book promises to bring more of the same surprises and great characters.
