Today’s post is a spotlight for Our Bloody Pearl by D.N. Bryn which came 4th place in the #BBNYA2021 competition that I was lucky enough to be on the panel for!!

I had such great fun participating in last year’s panel, and I can’t wait to take part in this year’s panel, but until then, I am going to be bringing you blog posts for all 10 of the finalists.

Thank you to Dave from @The_WriteReads, and the whole team over at @BBNYA_Official for the past year’s competition, and for letting me take part in these tours.

Now, without further ado, here is all the information you need to know about the book which came 4th place!!

GOODREADS SYNOPSIS

The ocean is uncontrollable and dangerous. But to the sirens who swim the warm island waters, it’s a home more than worth protecting from the humans and their steam-propelled ships. Between their hypnotic voices and the strength of their powerful tails, sirens have little to fear.

That is, until the ruthless pirate captain, Kian, creates a device to cancel out their songs.

Perle was the first siren captured, and while all since have either been sold or killed, Kian still keeps them prisoner. Though their song is muted and their tail paralyzed, Perle’s hope for escape rekindles as another pirating vessel seizes Kian’s ship. This new captain seems different, with his brilliant smile and his promises that Kian will never again be Perle’s master. But he’s still a human, and a captor in his own way. The compassion he and his rag-tag human family show can’t be sincere… or can it?

Soon it becomes clear that Kian will hunt Perle relentlessly, taking down any siren in her path. As the tides turn, Perle must decide whether to run from Kian forever, or ride the forming wave into battle, hoping their newfound human companions will fight with them.

This adult fantasy novel featuring an nonbinary disabled protagonist is a voyage of laughter and danger where friendships and love abound and sirens are sure to steal—or eat—your heart. 

Trigger warnings: mild gore due to carnivorous sirens and sensations of drowning.
