I just finished reading the book The Siren by Kiera Cass. A while ago, I read Kiera Cass’s more famous books, The Selection series, and I really wanted to read more by her. So I read The Siren, and she did not fail to impress me once more.
The Siren is about a girl named Kahlen. In the beginning, she is on a large boat with her wealthy family. When the boat sinks, Kahlen’s last thought is that she does not want to die. Because of this thought, the Ocean chooses her to become one of Her beloved sirens.
There are only a few sirens alive at a time and they live for one hundred years without aging or dying; then they are turned back into humans and their memories are wiped. In return, the sirens have to use their voices to lure humans into the Ocean’s depths in order to feed Her. There are also many strict rules of being a siren, like no speaking to humans or getting married.
Kahlen has been a siren for eighty years when she meets Akinli, a human boy. She no longer wants to follow all of the Ocean’s rules, but the Ocean won’t let that happen.
“A girl with a secret. The boy of her dreams. An Ocean between them.”
The book is filled with many twists and turns and the love story between Kahlen and Akinli is one of the best I’ve ever read!
