Monstrous Beauty (ARC)
by Elizabeth Fama

Her tail was caught in the fisherman’s gill net.
Ezra looked back at Olaf, and by the light of the lantern could see him pulling on the net, hand over hand. He was drawing Syrenka— and Ezra’s boat— toward him. Syrenka thrashed to free her tail; water sprayed in every direction.
Ezra instinctively put his hands on Syrenka’s hands. Her skin was slick, fi rm, and pliable, and cooler than his own.
He shouted in Olaf ’s direction. “You bastard! Stop!” Her fi ngers were being pulled off the edge of the boat. He caught her forearms, but they slid through his hands until the fi ns on her wrists cut into his palms. He held on. He felt warm blood, and the sting of the salt water. He was being pulled so hard, the boat was tipping.
“Let go, Ezra,” Syrenka said.

JoAnne

My name is JoAnne and I am a sucker for fairy tales. When I was a kid, I dreamed of becoming a princess, finding my handsome prince and living happily ever after. But my parents talked me into taking up law instead. I get a strange high from reading young adult and new adult novels. I know people secretly judge me for reading books not for my age. But frankly, I don’t care. I know what makes me happy – coming-of-age stories, spine-tingling romances, fictional boyfriends, and fairy tale endings.
