A delicious tale of revenge and identity from Carrie Ryan, the bestselling author of The Forest of Hands and Teeth.
In the wake of the deadly devastation of luxury yacht Persephone, just three souls remain to tell its story—and two of them are lying. Only Frances Mace, rescued from the ocean after torturous days adrift with her dying friend Libby, knows that the Persephone wasn’t sunk by a rogue wave as survivors Senator Wells and his son are claiming—it was attacked.
To ensure her safety from the obviously dangerous and very powerful Wells family, Libby’s father helps newly orphaned Frances assume Libby’s identity. Frances has spent years in hiding, transforming herself into Libby, and she can no longer allow the people who murdered her entire family and Libby to get away with it. After years of careful plotting, she’s ready to set her revenge plans into motion—even if it means taking down the boy she’d once been in love with: the senator’s son.
The game has just begun, and Frances is not only playing dirty, she’s playing to win.
I’m excited for a revenge book.
Something nice and dark that I can be read out on the beach or in my house when it’s snowing outside. Dark books about rich people are the books that can be read anywhere because the atmosphere of the story is usually incredibly intoxicating and powerful the reader forgets were they are. This book will also be a great palate cleanser after all the fantasy worlds that have been pouring out of publishing houses lately. Ryan is a very talent reader and I’m sure she can make Daughter of Deep Silence something unforgettable.
