Love is a risk worth taking.

Years ago, Kahlen was rescued from drowning by the Ocean. To repay her debt, she has served as a Siren ever since, using her voice to lure countless strangers to their deaths. Though a single word from Kahlen can kill, she can’t resist spending her days on land, watching ordinary people and longing for the day when she will be able to speak and laugh and live freely among them again.

Kahlen is resigned to finishing her sentence in solitude…until she meets Akinli. Handsome, caring, and kind, Akinli is everything Kahlen ever dreamed of. And though she can’t talk to him, they soon forge a connection neither of them can deny…and Kahlen doesn’t want to.

Falling in love with a human breaks all the Ocean’s rules, and if the Ocean discovers Kahlen’s feelings, she’ll be forced to leave Akinli for good. But for the first time in a lifetime of following the rules, Kahlen is determined to follow her heart.



I did enjoy this story. Kahlen as a main character was a bit annoying for me in the beginning. I had to keep in mind that she was 19 years old when she became a siren and that she was stuck in that naïveté, but at the same time she was more mature in other areas. The relationships that the author created between the siren sisters was special and Kahlen’s relationship with the Ocean was intriguing. The other character is Akinli, he is a college student that stumbles upon Kahlen and blows apart her defenses. What I truly enjoyed about this story was the relationship that developed between Kahlen and Akinli. He is just a breath of fresh air and how the Author portrays their relationship is wonderful. If you get a chance this is a good read.
