A girl with a secret.
The boy of her dreams.
An Ocean between them.
Years ago, Kahlen was rescued from drowning by the Ocean. To repay her debt, she has served as a Siren ever since, using her voice to lure countless strangers to their deaths. Though a single word from Kahlen can kill, she can’t resist spending her days on land, watching ordinary people and longing for the day when she will be able to speak and laugh and live freely among them again.
Kahlen is resigned to finishing her sentence in solitude…until she meets Akinli. Handsome, caring, and kind, Akinli is everything Kahlen ever dreamed of.
Falling in love with a human breaks the Ocean’s rules. But for the first time in a lifetime of following the rules, Kahlen is determined to follow her heart.
I have completely enjoyed Kiera Cass and her writing. It’s simple, easy, cheesy and I enjoy it! I had heard about this being a “redo” from her first published version of this book and that the first version wasn’t that good. I didn’t read the first version but only this one and I have to say it’s cute! I love the covers of all her books and so of course I had to continue buying them! *sigh* cover love!
Alright…moving on from Kiera Cass gush!
I really enjoyed Cass’s version of Sirens. I liked the fact that the ocean speaks to them, treats them like her own daughters but can be just as ruthless when not obeyed, and when they turn siren they wear these gorgeous siren dresses which I thought was unique plus it makes more of a distinction between sirens and mermaids…depending on who you talk to, they are one in the same.
I loved how the sirens are under this “curse” for a certain amount of time and then are actually released. I liked how they come from all different backgrounds, times, families and they bond with each other. I love that each individual siren has their own personality.
The overall story was great. I loved that serious trying on Kathleen’s part to keep her distance from life and love until her time is done.
The romance was cheesy but you know what? It’s okay to like a little cheese, beside the main love interest is a GOOD GUY! This was a very tender and sweet story. I feel very appropriate for all ages. That is another great thing about Kiera Cass, she writes good clean romances and I so appreciate that.
If you’re looking for a cute, unique story of sirens. pick this up!
