“You must never do anything that might expose our secret. This means that, in general, you cannot form close bonds with humans. You can speak to us, and you can always commune with the Ocean, but you are deadly to humans. You are, essentially, a weapon. A very beautiful weapon. I won’t lie to you, it can be a lonely existence, but once you are done, you get to live. All you have to give, for now, is obedience and time…”

The same speech has been given hundreds of times to hundreds of beautiful girls who enter the sisterhood of sirens. Kahlen has lived by these rules for years now, patiently waiting for the life she can call her own. But when Akinli, a human, enters her world, she can’t bring herself to live by the rules anymore. Suddenly the life she’s been waiting for doesn’t seem nearly as important as the one she’s living now.


I fell in love with this book from the beginning. It told such a beautiful and intriguing story that had me hooked from page one.

The characters in this book were really unique and were rather quirky in their own ways and I loved all the differences about them all that kind of brought them closer together and made them really bond as ‘sisters’.

The setting of this book revolved around the ocean, which I think made me really love it even more and reminded me of The Little Mermaid (and if you don’t know me already, The Little Mermaid is my fave) and I really loved how Kiera also explained the ocean in a vivid details, making it so much easier to imagine in readers minds.

Overall, The Siren was a very fast paced and enjoyable book, with a unique and new plot that is very different to most other YA books. The Siren would be great for those that love The Little Mermaid, the ocean and mythology.

STAR RATING: 4 out of 5 stars!

Thank you Harper Collins Australia for sending me a review copy!!
