Waiting on Moonrise & The Golden City!




Nov 5, 2013 | Roc Trade 

For two years, Oriana Paredes has been a spy among the social elite of the Golden City, reporting back to her people, the sereia, sea folk banned from the city’s shores....

When her employer and only confidante decides to elope, Oriana agrees to accompany her to Paris. But before they can depart, the two women are abducted and left to drown. Trapped beneath the waves, Oriana’s heritage allows her to survive while she is forced to watch her only friend die.

Vowing vengeance, Oriana crosses paths with Duilio Ferreira—a police consultant who has been investigating the disappearance of a string of servants from the city’s wealthiest homes. Duilio also has a secret: He is a seer and his gifts have led him to Oriana.

Bound by their secrets, not trusting each other completely yet having no choice but to work together, Oriana and Duilio must expose a twisted plot of magic so dark that it could cause the very fabric of history to come undone....

From the bestselling author of The Same Sweet Girls and The Sunday Wife comes a moving novel of dark secrets, second chances, and an eerily beautiful Blue Ridge Mountain retreat known as Moonrise. . .
Moonrise: a perfectly restored Victorian showplace nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Famous for its beguiling nocturnal garden that glows when the moon is full, the retreat is now the final resting place of its beautiful and accomplished owner, Rosalyn, victim of a tragic accident less than a year ago. All around the estate, her closest friends gather for the summer as usual, mourning her loss and looking to comfort her widower, Emmet.

But when Emmet arrives for the summer, he doesn't come alone. His new bride, Helen, is eager to see Moonrise and to join the world that means so much to her charismatic TV journalist husband. But Emmet's close-knit circle of friends cannot quite accept her, and the harder she tries the worse it gets. Rumors fly, gossip stirs: no one can be trusted. Is someone deliberately trying to ruin Helen's marriage . . . or is the secret that haunts Moonrise claiming another victim?

Would you happen to know if there's any werewolves in Moonrise? The blurb says no but the cover screams yes. I'm tempted to add it to my TBR pile...
