"John Everson has a strange fascination with the water and tragedy. His books Covenant andSacrifice are a testament to the fact that whenever people get near a big open area of water, someone dies, and it's never pretty. This time around, death floats with an old sailor's myth, the Siren, and the result is a book that's one part gruesome, one part tragedy, and one part erotic thriller. ... Siren is easily one of Everson's best. This multi-layered story captures the reader with its ability to stir the emotions as well as repulse."
"Fresh storylines, memorable lifelike characters, horrifying creatures and enough frights to keep you up late into the evening are only a few of the reasons you should be reading John Everson's work. Siren should be at the top of your must read list and I highly recommend it."
--Famous Monsters of Filmland
"His prose fits the unpredictable shoreline: beautiful and rhythmic, yet sharp and sweeps the reader away just as he or she feels the magic is fading into the reality of ordinary lives... What truly brings Siren home and elevates him as an author to a new level is the relationship between Evan and his distraught wife. One could remove the supernatural aspect of this story and it would still hold strong. While the siren myth is handled better than anything else in memory, it is Ligeia's human element which joins drama and horror together so well. Highly recommended."

"Siren is as wicked a tale of intense sexual obsession as any you're likely to read, and it'll definitely make you afraid -- very afraid -- of the water. Beware, this sexy siren has teeth, and she knows how to use 'em!"
--W.D. Gagliani, author of Wolf's Bluff
