The Siren by Kiera Cass

siren The Siren by Kiera Cass.  Published by Harper Teen.        $11.99 CDN Kindle edition.

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.   (Goodreads excerpt)

Well what to say about this book?  I loved it!  Well I loved most of it.

I have really come to enjoy Kiera Cass. I loved The Selection. While this one is totally different, it was still thoroughly enjoyable. I will admit that I’m not too sure how I feel about the ending. I won’t give anything away (I hate spoilers) but I think I wanted more…not that I am sure exactly what more means at this point without telling too much of the story…

I have to say the book was original and full of interesting characters and intrigue. It wasn’t as ‘suspenseful’ or ‘grabbing’ as The Selection, but still very good in its own right. I also liked that this is a book that the author apparently rewrote.  I would love to read the original to see what changes were made.

4 stars for me!
