"Like its titular subject, Sirens drags you in with promises of beauty and mystery and then refuses to let go. You tear yourself away from the pages long enough to note that it's two in the morning before deciding to read just one more tale.
The collection has as many moods as the sea. Some stories are tempestuous, fraught with sharp-nailed danger, beckoning with blood red lips ("We Are Sirens," "The Bounty," "Is This Seat Taken"). Others reveal the dangers hiding beneath a still surface ("Safe Waters," "One More Song," "Experience"). Some draw on classical imagery and mythology ("The Fisherman and the Golem," "Moth to an Old Flame," "Homecoming"). Others break new and wondrous ground ("The Dolphin Riders," "Nautilus," "Notefisher," "Threshold"). And some wrap up classic myth with frank hilarity ("Siren Seeking," "The Fisherman's Catch").
Sirens is a fantastic voyage that tosses the reader up on many a strange-yet-familiar shore. Listen to the unique voices of each story. They're worth the risk of drowning." - Amber E. Scott, author of Chronicle of the Righteous and Siege of Dragonspear
