Call Number/Link: Teen Fiction Cass, K.
Synopsis: Kahlen is a Siren, bound to serve the Ocean by luring humans to 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 Kahlen can’t bear to stay away. Will she risk everything to follow her heart?
This was such a spellbinding book. I loved the way she writes the character so heart felt. She is unique and feels so many things and does not know why until she asks the Ocean more questions. The twists and turns keeps you on the edge of your seat and you will never guess the ending. Surprising what people keep hidden because they just don’t think it’s possible. Can’t wait to for the sequel to see where she takes it, there are so many possibilities. A great read for 8th grade and beyond.
