Book Description

To survive, their bond must be unbreakable.

When the mysterious and passionate Rhane rescues Kali from an attacker in the theater parking lot, they form an immediate, smoldering connection. But Kali doesn't remember Rhane or anything from their past. As far as Kali knows, she's just a seventeen-year-old kid coping with an insatiable hunger for the “spark” or energy of others, feeding on classmates to survive.

A unique artifact—one that may hold the key to returning Kali’s memories—is uncovered by the archaeology firm where she works part-time, sending Kali and Rhane on a dangerous journey that leads them to the Forbidden City, into the unforgiving Gobi, and into the ruins of Rhane’s ancient homeland. As they fight for survival, Kali begins to discover who she really is and the true power she possesses. But Rhane still harbors a secret that could destroy Kali…unless old enemies kill her first.


Editorial Reviews

From the Author

The novel, Dark Siren, is best described as paranormal romance artfully wrapped within a plot chock-full of action, adventure, and edge-of-your-seat suspense, while the series has evolved to become a journey of redemption and second chances as two characters understand that sometimes committing evil is necessary to protect what is loved most. I took the siren from Greek mythology (and borrowed a little from mermaid lore), creating an entirely different creature, with its own mythology, and one that Publisher's Weekly praised for its passion and complexity. This is not just another werewolf/shapeshifter romance or vampire romance. I think this is a story that both adults and teens can enjoy, full of characters to fall in love with!

About the Author

Eden Ashley was born and raised in a small sunny town in South Carolina. But it's the thunderstorms that have inspired her best ideas. There are few things she loves more than curling up with a good book and a cup of coffee on a rainy day, (except maybe chocolate cake. she loves cake.) often reading into the wee hours of morning when something really grabs her. Dark Siren is her first novel. Best described as love story artfully wrapped inside a plot chock-full of action, adventure, and supernatural fantasy, Dark Siren is a journey of redemption and second chances as two characters understand that sometimes great evil is necessary to protect what is loved most. Eden has taken the siren from Greek mythology and created an entirely different creature, with its own mythology--one that Publisher's Weekly praised as emotionally fervent and complex. Dark Siren is a piece of genre crossing fiction, a romance that both adult and young adult readers will enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars A stunningly great debut novel! February 4, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
What I liked: This story is very engaging, and the writing kept me glued to the page while I read. While the prologue left me wondering what was happening for so long after a while I was able to piece together what had happened and I liked that I didn’t have it explained to me, that I could guess about how the prologue and the main story weaves together! The whole mystery aspect about who Kali really is and what she was before and how she fit into everything was really interesting. Rhane himself was a bit of an enigmatic figure for a while, coming and going at the most opportune moments and it wasn’t until we followed him for a while that I got more of an understanding of who/what he might be in this story, though the actual reveal of that was a lot more interesting than I had bargined for!

What I didn’t liked: I would have liked to learn more about what the canine creatures in this book actually were a lot sooner. I couldn’t put it together and I couldn’t really get a firm image about what they looked like. Wolf-like? Dog-like? Canine is a pretty broad term and after a while I just settled with them being more wolf-like. I would have liked to know more about what happened in the past when Rhane was younger and how Kali fit into everything with him sooner since it would have made more sense for him to tell her. I didn’t really see the point in keeping it from her for so long.

Overall Review: Extremely well written for a debut novel, Dark Siren is a fantastic novel that will keep you glued to its pages as you try to find out what is going to happen to the characters next. The characters were almost all entertaining and fun with the exception for a few, they were either just not really a part of the story or I didn’t like them.

5.0 out of 5 stars great start to a new series! January 25, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
Well, I loved this one! It's this author's debut but it was so well done. I couldn't put it down and I know I will be jumping into the sequel ASAP!

Kalista, aka Kali, is in high school, except she doesn't know that she's had a previous life with previous memories, and she's been reborn for a reason. You see, she doesn't remember anything of that. All she knows is her life right now. She doesn't even remember her childhood well. And Kali hungers, except it's not for your normal hamburger. Though she likes food, she can't help herself. Without sustenance she gets real sick, but that sustenance is coming from making out with boys that aren't her boyfriend. She's eating a piece of their souls. Cal is her boyfriend, but it doesn't take long for her to realize it's not going to work with him after all. And the she meets Rhane, when he saves her life at the movies. And she feels not just a pull and attraction to Rhane, but she just met him and she feels like she's known him forever.

Rhane has been alive for far longer than should be possible. He remember everything Kali doesn't. His marriage, their past, her death. He's also trying to get over the fact that Kali is a 17 year old high school senior. Not a hundreds of year old woman whom he was married to. Things are getting real complicated. And since she doesn't know anything, including who and what he is, Banewolf, he has to treat her with completely fragile kid gloves. She might want him like a woman, but she lives the life of a 17 year old.

So, Kali works at a archaeological artifacts firm, and when a stolen artifact talks to Kali, sings to her, she blacks out, and things get really complicated. And to make matters worse, her boss is very insistent that she must come with him to meet the buyer of this artifact.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dark Siren February 4, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
I received this book from Xpresso Book Tours in return for a fair and honest review.

In a genre that is saturated with shifters and vampires (although that is slowly changing) it makes a refreshing change to read something different. And trust me, this is different. I have read the book, enjoyed the book, know what Kali's title is but I don't actually know 'what' she is completely. You might think that this is a problem but it's not. If anything, it makes you connect with Kali all the more. After all, this book pretty much takes place over a couple of weeks time so Kali has gone from knowing that she is different to being in life-threatening situations and being sold!

Kali doesn't give the best first impression as she is making out with someone else's boyfriend and also doesn't seem to upset about that as she rationalises it to herself. The relationship between her and Cal was a bit strange too although, to be fair, I've seen stranger relationships in 'real' life. I was glad when they split up although I am interested to see where the story is going.

Rhane, ah Rhane. What can I say about him apart from I want one! Tall, dark, handsome, protective, Alpha AND he has morals - what more could you want? Apart from loving every scene that he was in, I found myself getting more and more interested in his backstory as the current story moved along.

Although this is classed as Paranormal, I think I personally would add a touch, just a touch, of Sci-Fi to it too (Builders). This was very well-written with a fast pace, characters that are both likeable and not! I honestly could not believe the ending and need to read the second book! Highly recommended.

More About the Author

Cynic, realist, and hopeless romantic all rolled into one, Eden was born and raised in a small, sunny town in South Carolina, but thunderstorms have inspired her best ideas. There are few things she loves more than curling up with a good book and a cup of coffee on a rainy day (Except maybe chocolate cake, she loves cake.), often reading into the wee hours of morning when something really grabs her. Eden enjoys reading or watching anything with supernatural elements, so writing paranormal romance and fantasy romance seems to be a natural fit.

Her first novel, Dark Siren, is best described as paranormal romance artfully wrapped within a plot chock-full of action, adventure, and edge-of-your-seat suspense, while the series has evolved to become a journey of redemption and second chances as two characters understand that sometimes committing evil is necessary to protect what is loved most. Eden took the siren from Greek mythology (and borrowed a little from mermaid lore), creating an entirely different creature, with its own mythology, and one that Publisher's Weekly praised for its passion and complexity. This is not just another werewolf/shapeshifter romance or vampire romance. This is a story that both adults and teens can enjoy, full of great characters to fall in love with!
