Overview

The ocean is uncontrollable and dangerous. But to the sirens who swim the warm island waters, it's a home more than worth protecting from the humans and their steam-propelled ships. Between their hypnotic voices and the strength of their powerful tails, sirens have little to fear.
That is, until the ruthless pirate captain, Kian, creates a device to cancel out their songs.

Perle was the first siren captured, and while all since have either been sold or killed, Kian still keeps them prisoner. Though their song is muted and their tail paralyzed, Perle's hope for escape rekindles as another pirating vessel seizes Kian's ship. This new captain seems different, with his brilliant smile and his promises that Kian will never again be Perle's master. But he's still a human, and a captor in his own way. The compassion he and his rag-tag human family show can't be sincere... or can it?

Soon it becomes clear that Kian will hunt Perle relentlessly, taking down any siren in her path. As the tides turn, Perle must decide whether to run from Kian forever, or ride the forming wave into battle, hoping their newfound human companions will fight with them.

I absolutely adored this book: the characters, the setting, the language. The world was super interesting, it was easy to read for someone like me, not native English speaker, and ahhhhh the characters. This book moved me, it had great diversity and I can't wait for the next one. I recommend this for every fantasy lover: trust me, this book is so worth it and it's like something you have never read, in the best kind of way. I mean, diversity, pirates and steampunk! What are you waiting for? Buy this book! You won't regret it.

This YA book, like its characters, is a unique mix of several genres. There is a bit of steam punk, adventure, budding romance, sirens, family relationships and gender identification. The story easily captures your imagination and tugs you into some deeper compelling thoughts about what is going on beyond the surface story of Dejean rescuing Perle and Perle’s quest for revenge on his captor. The idea of the Siren’s and their opinions and responses to humans led to some riveting discussions on societies and their functions. Some YA may pick it up for the adventure and that’s great, but those who read a little deeper will have a lot of conversation starting fodder. I think this book would be perfect in any high school library or personal collection.

Do you like adventure? Fantasy? Pirates, Sirens, and all that comes with the Sea? Then this book is for you!! It's a page-turner as irresistible as the sirens' call - when you pick it up, you won't put it back until it's finished! [The book is around 77k - it took me around 4 hours, if you'd like an approximate]. Featuring a diverse cast and engaging plot, this story is a breath of freshness in the stale waters of pirate books. Definitely worth checking out!!
