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 unsavoury 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?… (més)

Hachi machi, this was certainly a book that I read. ( )

I liked this way more than I thought I would. I didn't know anything going into this book except for the fact that it was about a siren. Sea creatures have just never been something that really held my attention in creature tales (Mermaids included) so I wasn't sure if I would like this but I was pleasantly surprised. Finals are happening soon at my school so this book was certainly a welcomed distraction. I really did enjoy all the characters. I think they were fairly well fleshed out and had very interesting personality traits but I do wish that Kye and Madrid had a bit more of an explained backstory. I don't know if this will be the first in the series but if it is a stand-alone I wish their characters had been more fleshed out instead of their backstories just being alluded to. I also liked the ending but didn't love it. It was a satisfying ending but also some part of me wanted a little bit more. But overall I loved the journey they went on and I liked the characters and I liked the interaction of a siren in disguise and a pirate prince and his crew. ( )

teen fiction (little mermaid retold, but soo much better than that despicably sad Hans C Andersen tale)
THIS IS INTENSE, but in an action-filled, murderous feelings kind of way rather than romantic. Of course, the two protagonists can't help getting attached to each other despite their being enemies, and I pretty much cannot stop reading this. These are the two most intriguing, likeable, charming pair of murderers you'll ever meet, and the lively banter shared amongst the pirate crew is as sharp as a siren's teeth. ( )

So, in short:
I LOVED IT SO MUCH I CAN'T EXPRESS IT PROPERLY?!?!?!?!?!?

Now, the long version:
To be completely honest, this book didn't have me completely till around 30%, but after that I was engrossed!! It was actually worth it!!

I really loved the characters, I loved the story, and just WHY ISN'T THERE MORE!?!??! I just seriously love standalone books that manage to incorporate a series' worth of story in a single book, and this seemed like one of them! I love The Little Mermaid, even the one by Hans Christian Anderson, (though that one makes me cry every time I read it) and so this take on the story was really new(for me), even though it was old, and I liked the familiarity of the story.

I loved the banter between the characters, and the romance seemed really well developed. Lira and Elian were just so well written, and the secret keeping, and guilt involved made it a really good read for me( I just really really like guilt and angst that follows in any book).

I recommend this to anyone looking for a Little Mermaid retelling, or a good fantasy book with some romance woven in. ( )

Very interesting twist on the little mermaid story!

Lira, daughter of the ruthless Sea Queen, steals the hearts of princes - literally. But when she breaks the rules and gets on her mother’s bad side, she is transformed into a human as punishment. The only way to redeem herself is to bring back the heart of one particularly dangerous prince.

Prince Elian has made it his mission to kill the sirens that plague the seas, especially the red-haired demon known as the Princes’ Bane. When he fishes a strange girl out of the water, she offers him valuable information that sends him on a new quest for a mythical jewel with incredible power. As they make the journey to a place no siren and few humans have ever gone, they realize they might have the wrong idea about who is an enemy and who is a friend.

I read this in one weekend! It was fantastic! ( )
