Princess Lira is siren royalty and the most lethal of them all. With the hearts of seventeen princes in her collection, she is revered across the sea. Until a twist of fate forces her to kill one of her own. To punish her daughter, the Sea Queen transforms Lira into the one thing they loathe most—a human. Robbed of her song, Lira has until the winter solstice to deliver Prince Elian’s heart to the Sea Queen or remain a human forever.

The ocean is the only place Prince Elian calls home, even though he is heir to the most powerful kingdom in the world. Hunting sirens is more than an unsavory hobby—it’s his calling. When he rescues a drowning woman in the ocean, she’s more than what she appears. She promises to help him find the key to destroying all of sirenkind for good—But can he trust her? And just how many deals will Elian have to barter to eliminate mankind’s greatest enemy?

I had originally started reading this book but when I realized I wasn’t going to have time to read I decided to grab the audio and listen instead. I honestly loved this book. I loved how they spun the story and it had a bit of a little mermaid feel but so much better.

The story was told in two different POV’s so each POV has a different narrator which I loved. Lyra and Elian are just fantastic characters. Lyra is a strong independent girl trying to prove herself to her evil mom but she has a kindness that she isn’t aware of. Elian is a prince that doesn’t want to be a prince. I loved how complicated both of these characters are and the narrators did such a fantastic job giving them a voice.

Overall, I really did love this book. I found some of the voices were weird in the beginning but as the story went on it really didn’t bother me as much. Whether you listen or read, I highly recommend this books! Such a great story!

Thanks for stopping by to check out my review.

Have a great day and Happy Reading!

  1. Glad this was good! I’ve seen other good reviews for it too- it does sound like a good read (or listen haha).

    I love complicated characters!

    • It was really so good. I really loved the characters so much. Really an interesting take to mermaids and maybe even a hint of the little mermaid story.
