#BBNYA Spotlight Tour! OUR BLOODY PEARL by D.N. Brynn #thewritereads

Hi friends!

I come to you today with a spotlight post for this year’s BBNYA! Woohoo!

This year, the Book Bloggers’ Novel of the Year Award (BBNYA) is celebrating the 65 books that made it into Round Two with a mini spotlight blitz tour for each title. BBNYA is a yearly competition where book bloggers from all over the world read and score books written by indie authors, ending with 10 finalists and one overall winner.

If you want some more information about BBNYA, check out the BBNYA Website https://www.bbnya.com/ or take a peek over on Twitter @BBNYA_Official. BBNYA is brought to you in association with the @Foliosociety (if you love beautiful books, you NEED to check out their website!) and the book blogger support group @The_WriteReads.


The ocean is uncontrollable and dangerous.ย But to the sirens who swim the warm island waters, itโ€™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, Perleโ€™s hope for escape rekindles as another pirating vessel seizes Kianโ€™s ship. This new captain seems different, with his brilliant smile and his promises that Kian will never again be Perleโ€™s master. But heโ€™s still a human, and a captor in his own way. The compassion he and his rag-tag human family show canโ€™t be sincereโ€ฆย 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 stealโ€”or eatโ€”your heart.ย ย 

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