Kahlen was meant to die eighty years ago but instead she was bound to the ocean to serve as a Siren luring unsuspecting humans to their death for a hundred years with the sound of her voice. Kahlen and her sisters move from city to city to hide what they are while living among the humans but when needed they return to the sea to sing.
When Kahlen meets Akinli he treats her differently than any human ever has speaking to her even though she can’t talk with him. She quickly finds herself falling in love with Akinli but with another twenty years on her contract with the ocean she finds herself struggling with who she is and what part she plays in so many deaths over the years.
The Siren is a love story with a bit of a twist with the main character being a Siren. Serving the ocean for a hundred years Kahlen has really only had her other Siren sisters in her life but after so much time she begins to see what she’s missing on land.
The overall story here was interesting enough to maintain my attention but there definitely were some slower parts throughout the book. There really wasn’t anything you wouldn’t expect to happen though in a romance read or anything amazingly different with what’s known of a Siren.
Overall I’d say 3.5 stars for this book, a bit slow moving but not too bad a fantasy romance.
