The Siren

( 52 )

Overview

"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.

    One of my favorites!!

    This book was the best! I absolutely recommend it. You will not be able to put down. The plot is amazing! A different twist to most of the books you see. It's like nothing you have ever read before. Definitly recommended to the romantics and just someone who wants to read something different. Must read(:

    The Siren

    A defintite read for anyone who's into myths and romance! Kiera Cass brings her characters alive in a way that leaves you wanting nothing but more! I finished in a matter of days; this book had me hooked! I'd say it's a good read for girls anywhere from the age of 10 up! Readers who enjoyed Stephenie Meyer's 'Twilight' Series will probably enjoy this book.

    I don't undertand the high rating on this book.  I have found it

    I don't undertand the high rating on this book.  I have found it boring and not up to the standards of The Selection and The Elite.  I am very disappointed with this book.

    What a read!

    Saw kiera's videos on line, loved her style, got the book and fell in love. Made me cry at the right parts, laugh at the funny moments, and had fantastic language and feeling throughout. Richly descriptive with 'real' characters. Has become one of my favourite books definitely!

    100% MUST READ

    Really great book!

    This is not my favorite book, but it was still a really good book and I had trouble putting it down. I wanted to know what would happen next at every moment in the book. If you like this book then look into Kiera's other book The Selection, and her upcoming (next month) sequel to The Selection, called The Elite.

    Super!!!

    I absolutely loved this book. It displays a very lasting bond between the main character Kaheln and the Ocean (her mother). It makes you realize how strong a motherly bond is. Also, I loved the romantic aspect of it because I just do! This was the first book that I actually literally cried a lot on because it was just a peaceful and meaningful ending. It is too hard to describe so you HAVE to read this book!!!
