The Sirens by Kiera Cass
“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?”
So this story is about Sirens, I didn’t know what Sirens are before I started this book but this book explains it so well although at the beginning I kept on imagining them as mermaids and they’re similar in some way but the more you know about them the more you realize they don’t. It’s a tempting dreadful bound so this book is emotional, specially after Khalen fell in love with a guy. The groundwork is laid out so well but I kept on having questions 🤔 I really enjoyed reading it and it’s one of those “You have to finish me in one setting” books because the chapters are divided so well and the book is exciting ♥️.
⚠️ Spoiler Alert ⚠️ So I really loved the concept of this story specially since I love Greek mythology and I loved the ocean. The ocean is the most complex thing in this book, you can’t hate her and you can’t love her and her bound with the girls is just amazing to read about. The love story between Kahlen and Akinli is cute and sweet but I couldn’t feel the depth of it, I felt like Kahlen didn’t really explain what she sees in Akinli that made him the “one”. What if another guy came in and did what he did will he also be the “one”? Although I really love Akinli and his man bun 😚 The sisterhood is also beautiful, the way they take care of each other and look out for one another is heartwarming 🌊
