5-star REVIEWS for The Siren's Tale
(June 18 - July 17, 2013)
- "Everything a great novel should be! Anne Carlisle is a magnificent writer! The Siren's Tale has it all..a superb plot, characters who jump off the page and a wonderfully macabre tinge of supernatural! I loved this book!!" - The James Mason Community Book Club, Rick F.
"The dominance of the educated, cunning, and alluring sirens over their male conquests makes Carlisle's novel a staple on the nightstands of female readers seeking steamy paranormal passion. However, the story also contains abundant suspense, ... -- page to page, chapter to chapter." - DRShoultz Blog, Donn.
- "Anne does a fantastic job of giving the history behind this siren family." - Some Like It Hot, Michele
- "A five star read!" Goodreads, Beppe
From the Author
The Siren's Tale
was inspired by my admiration for the work of modern writers such as Anne Rice and by my love of 19th century British literature. My secret goal was to do for sirens what Rice has done for vampires. I also had this notion that strong women don't fare as well as they should in Victorian novels. So I turned one of Thomas Hardy's bad girls into a siren of the American frontier. Cassandra's vampish behavior is vindicated by her natural appetite for sex. And in the end, isn't it better if we make love, not war?
