Overview

On a rainy September morning 16-year-old Ailen Bright flees her abusive father by jumping off the Seattle Aurora Bridge. Instead of a true death, in the water she finds several silver-skinned sirens who convert her to one of their own. As a newborn siren she is dead, supernaturally strong, and hungry for her new sustenance—human souls.

Ailen refuses to kill…at first. With time she must face the agony that comes with starvation, while being relentlessly pursued by a siren hunter. An enthralling and dark look into the mind and heart of a suicidal teenager, this urban fantasy follows Ailen's struggle to figure out the meaning of life, her confusing feelings for her best friend Hunter, and her desperate battle for her father's love.

Siren Suicides is a wonderfully detailed, well-told story dealing with some hard subjects: suicide, parental abuse, and heartbreak. Although at times the story felt like it was geared a bit more toward people around the age of the protagonist (teens, whereas I am middle-aged), I still found a ton that I liked and could relate to. And the story is both vividly written and easy to read. And the ending! Another reviewer had mixed feelings about the ending of this story, but for me the it was the best part. In some books, when you see "Epilogue" you get an addition to the story, something that comes after the story and maybe provides some additional details or closure. In Siren Suicides, the Epilogue is VITAL to the story. It is, in many ways, the redemption of everything that has come before it. This is the third book of Ksenia's that I have read, and I've never been sorry for the time I've spent in her writing.
