“An absolutely haunting and lyrical read. The captivating use of music and a darkly seductive magic will have readers singing its praises and longing for more.”
—Colleen Oakes, author of Queen of Hearts
When Lorelei Clark’s father is killed, she is haunted by the feeling that she could have prevented it. If only she had done something—anything—besides simply singing to him while his life drained from his body, perhaps he would have survived.
Eighteen-year-old Lorelei Clark was a gifted singer at a music conservatory until the day her father was struck by an oncoming car. His death leaves her emotionally shattered, so when she receives an invitation from her great-aunt Helen to visit her home in Cape Cod, Lorelei accepts. She quickly discovers that Helen and her two nieces are harboring a frightening secret – they are sirens, terrifying mythical creatures responsible for singing doomed sailors to their deaths. Even more astounding, Lorelei is one of them, a siren called to do fate’s bidding. In this new world where water comes alive at her touch and an ancient power pulses beneath the tide, the most important rule Lorelei must learn is that a siren never EVER interferes with fate.
When she breaks this rule by rescuing a handsome sailor who was supposed to die at sea, the sirens vow that she must finish the job or face grave consequences. Unable to bring herself to murder the young man and finding herself inexplicably attracted to him, she must fight to keep him safe from the others, even if it means risking her own life, and her heart, in the process.
