Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up—Kahlen still has trouble adjusting to the life of a siren. After becoming a siren 80 years ago, she is still unable to subdue the disgust and shame she feels while taking innocent lives in order to feed the Ocean. The Ocean is a motherly being who feeds off lives that drown in her waters. Sirens are the few young women whose lives she saves from death in order to keep her fed. Ocean cares intensely for Kahlen. However, when the protagonist falls in love with Akinli, a human boy, her responsibility to care for her sisters (also sirens) and the Ocean becomes a complicated task. Her sisters, along with the Ocean, watch her soul and body deteriorate the longer she is away from Akinli, who appreciates the true Kahlen, aside from her beauty and silence. Overall, the heroine is a meek character, but her muddled past, thoughts, and actions make her slightly interesting. Teens will appreciate her passion for her relationships—whether romantic or sisterly. Secondary characters aren't as intriguing or fully developed. Despite these shortcomings, the novel is fairly well written and offers a twist on Hans Christian Andersen's "The Little Mermaid" that romance fans will enjoy. VERDICT A satisfactory purchase for libraries with a strong and faithful Cass fan base.—Briana Moore, School Library Journal

A twist on Hans Christian Andersen s The Little Mermaid that romance fans will enjoy. --School Library Journal"

PRAISE FOR KIERA CASS: A real page-turner. Romance, royalty, and revolution in a reality-show format serve Cass boldly rendered heroine well in her quest for justice and love. --ALA Booklist"

An engrossing tale reminiscent of Shannon Hale s Princess Academy and Ally Condie s Matched. Fairy-tale lovers will lose themselves in America s alternate reality and wish that the next glamorous sequel were waiting for them. --School Library Journal"

Deliciously entertaining. --Publishers Weekly"

Cass s immensely readable debut novel is a less drastic Hunger Games, with elaborate fashion and trappings. The fast-paced action will have readers gasping for the upcoming sequel. --ALA Booklist"

A cross between The Hunger Games (minus the bloodsport) and The Bachelor (minus the bloodsport), this trilogy launch is a lot of fun. Cass deftly builds the chemistry between America and Maxon, while stoking the embers of America s first, forbidden love. --Publishers Weekly"
