Learning about the mythology of Sirens through Kiera’s world was very interesting! I always viewed Siren’s as mermaids, but they are in fact not mermaids and are actually so much cooler!
I really loved Kahlen our main character because she isn’t like the new young adult badass characters. Don’t get me wrong I love a good badass, but Kahlen was a refreshing breath of air from all of them. She is kind, compassionate and holds her heart on her sleeve. While her Siren sisters are great counterparts to her being spunky, sassy and full of life. They balanced each other out, and I really liked this dynamic of sisterhood in the story.
Along with the sisterly love we get in this book you also have the forbidden romance as a central plot point. The romance was sweet, cute and reminded me something straight out of a Disney princess movie. Which I am a massive sucker for a Disney romance! I think that Akinli as a character was charming and such a gentleman you couldn’t help but fall in love with him too!
