From Kiera Cass, author of the Selection series, comes a captivating stand-alone fantasy romance.

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?

The Siren was previously self-published; this edition has been completely rewritten and redesigned.

      this is another fantastic novel by kiera cass. it really shows the effects of true love and how kahlen and akinli were able to fall in love without kahlen being able to "speak".

          If you love sirens and the sea, this book is great for you! It has some romance, it's a great book and definitely is amazing. If you love mermaid/siren history, this book would also be great. If you loved this book, you should read other books by Kiera Cass!

                  isn't Kiera Cass like your favorite author! Her and JK Rowling are mine! She writes awesome romance novels so I NEED to see what this is about!

                    a very good book! not a connection to the selection series, but is Kiera Cass' style of writing. Kahlen, It does not do well to dwell on dreams and forget to live, remember that. - Albus Dumbledore
