I feel like I could see this one being turned into a CW show. For starters, if you’ve always been kiiiinda obsessed with mermaids (I mean, who wasn’t?), this book is for you. I’ll admit, this one feels like a YA novel, but in the best kind of way. Though the theme is a more traditional one, the story feels unique, and there are a few spins to the story that make the read really compelling.
Per the book’s description on Amazon:
A sweeping stand-alone fantasy romance from Kiera Cass, author of the Selection series.
Kahlen is a Siren—bound to serve the Ocean by luring humans to their watery graves with her voice, which is deadly to any human who hears it. Akinli is human—a kind, handsome boy who’s everything Kahlen ever dreamed of. Falling in love puts them both in danger… but will Kahlen risk everything to follow her heart?
This star-crossed YA romance is sure to captivate readers who grew up loving The Little Mermaid or fans of Jennifer Donnelly’s Waterfire Saga.
Originally self-published, The Siren has been completely rewritten and redesigned for print.
