Love is a risk worth taking.
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. And though she can’t talk to him, they soon forge a connection neither of them can deny…and Kahlen doesn’t want to.
Falling in love with a human breaks all the Ocean’s rules, and if the Ocean discovers Kahlen’s feelings, she’ll be forced to leave Akinli for good. But for the first time in a lifetime of following the rules, Kahlen is determined to follow her heart.
Why Do I Want to Read It?
The siren is a rewritten novel Cass self-published back before she sold her NYTs bestselling hit “The Selection”.
When I heard she was republishing this book I thought; ” huh, so she too started out somewhere small.” and it gave me hope for my own writing aspirations.
Sadly, I have yet to read this one but I hope to be getting to it soon. Cass stories aren’t exceptional but I love them -they’re fast and quick and their is always a hot guy. 😉 But, also, Cass was one of the first “dystopian/fantasy” authors I read, so she will always have a space, dedicated to her, on my bookshelves.
