Rating: 3.5 Stars

Bound to the water bound to land, a Siren’s soul will never be safe on either side of the ocean’s surface. Hidden beneath the rolling waves lies the secret to Theia’s past and as she unveils each haunting truth, she realizes the last seventeen years of her life have been a lie. Now, drawn into a mysterious new world and with nowhere to turn, Theia must place her trust in Luc, a beautiful boy who stops her heart with each dazzling smile, but even his unearthly charm can’t hide the truth—he has secrets— dark secrets binding him to his world—an underwater world where Theia will never belong—a world determined to destroy her soul.

 Ahhh...insta-love at its finest. I usually don't like the REAL LOVE in 24 seconds kind of love. Okay I didn't for like 4 pages of this one either..then I fell in love with the style and ultimate dedication to each other they had. Kinda awesome, you know?
Sirens are not like anything I've ever read in this book...
Sirens: noun- A creature of which both human and mermaid blood courses through its veins. A siren has the ability to both live on land and in water. If one is to be discovered, the act of living is punishable by death.
I have a new appreciation for seaweed and its amazing healing powers.
Here's What Happens:
So basically the a girl who think shes human get stolen from her bed, tossed in the ocean, chewed on by mermaids and gets rescued by a super cute merman prince (insert insta love here)
She saves a few people

Wow. This books is actually pretty uneventful...

For a short book (about 170 pages) it didn't feel too rushed. Too much.

The Characters: I liked them. Ms Daune gave you just enough of them for you to fall in love with them. She gave you just the right amount of them to make you want them to live and have their happily ever after.
I am wondering what the book trailers all about....I have no clue what its referencing..her siren-ness?
