Anne Greenwood Brown’s PROMISE BOUND (Random House/
Delacorte), is just hitting bookstore shelves this month. As this final chapter of the LIE BENEATH trilogy begins Calder’s sisters are vying for control of their mer-family, while Lily struggles to understand the dreams she’s been having since she started wearing a glass pendant that once belonged to Nadia, Calder’s adoptive mother. In fact, she’s been dreaming as if she were Nadia! And Nadia, it seems, made a promise before her death. A promise to reunite Calder’s biological mother with her son. Lily knows merfolk are bound to keep their promises. Calder’s not buying into it, though. He chalks up the dreams to stress. He wants Lily to focus on the future—their future, not the past. Which forces Lily to send Calder away. Calder goes, feeling rejected and more than a little tempted to revert to his hunting ways. Pick up a copy to find out what happens!
