      Kahlen was supposed to die.Instead, she has been sentenced to a hundred years of murder.She was a human, but now she is a siren: deadly but irresistible. Her voice is poison, death. When She’s hungry, the Ocean calls for Kahlen and her sisters to use their singing to drown humans. Kahlen has been doing this for eighty years. She doesn’t age or get sick. And while she never relishes in stealing lives, she never dares disobey the Ocean.Until she meets Akinli.They weren’t supposed to meet, an [...]

      All in all, I liked this book, it was fresh, cute and a fast read, and that's what I needed (because I've been reading heartbreaking, sad books). That said it was not what I expected. In good ways and in bad ways. Let's start with something I'm not sure if I liked or not, but it sure had me intrigued: The Ocean.I really liked Her sometimes, but there were other times that She just confused me. I mean, I liked the idea, I think that She was the strongest character of the book, and it's the first [...]

      The Siren was a SNOOZEFEST.I'm so disappointed in this book. I was such a huge fan of The Selection series so I expected to really like The Siren but honestly, everything was just super dull.The characters were boring. The only thing I enjoyed about the siren sisters was their dedication and loyalty to one another. The concept behind the Sirens and the Ocean was interesting but I didn't really love it. And on top of that, the romance was 100 percent insta-love. Their feelings developed too fast [...]

      Ok, kids. I obviously need to stop reading Kiera Cass books. I don't know why I keep doing falling for the gorgeous covers when the stories only work me into an irritable rant. So this time I'm going to be nice and just leave it with:

      Please do yourself 2 favors:1. Do not avoid this book simply because you hated Cass's The Selection series. The two are nothing, nothing, nothing alike. The characters, the world, the writing tone are all so very different. Sure, you may still dislike this one for any number of reasons, but if you're interested in the premise, don't judge it based on a totally separate book series.2. Do not avoid this book simply because mushy romances aren't your thing. Yes, there is a romance, and that's very [...]

      The Siren es una novela rápida y sencilla, con un punto de partida interesante y una historia de amor algo típica.La primera novela que leo de Kiera Cass fuera del mundo de La Selección (de hecho, es la única que tiene), y es también la primera novela que ella escribió. Pese a haber sido revisada y editada, creo que se nota la mejora que ha tenido en el resto de sus trabajos. Vamos, que sí, se nota que le faltaba poner un poco en orden las ideas y dotarlas de detalles.La novela es en sí [...]

      ❝Sometimes you have to give the hurt a noise and let it out. If you don’t, it fills you up with its emptiness.❞I hate to say it, but I don't think I would read another novel by Kiera Cass. If she did write something else, I don't think I would bother reading it or trying at least. Even if it would be something totally different than her Selection series, I don't think I would give it a shot. They're cute and small and I really like how Kiera makes it enjoyable at times, but other than that [...]

      This book was laaaaaaame. I listened to it on audio and considered DNF'ing at least 10 times. Major instalove. Flat writing. Flat characters. The resolution was way too convenient. I did like the concept of the siren world and the Ocean being personified. I think it would've been better if someone else wrote this book. I think I might be done with Kiera Cass.

      WrensReads Review:I don't know how to review this book. It wasn't the best thing I have ever read, but with my emotions all mixed up and my health not being as it should be right now, this book straight up made me cry for what I yearn for: love.Ever since I was little, I have fallen in love with the ideas of mermaids (or sirens, as some have called them). They are beautiful and mythical and quite honestly the root of my obsession of fantasy novels and movies. Anyone who knows me knows that, even [...]

      Reviewed by Samantha Clanton, aka Harlequin Twilight for TeensReadTooAfter reading this story, it is taking everything in me to not totally gush; it is that good. THE SIREN is the story of Kahlen, mostly, along with her sisters and the Ocean. A siren is a singer, a singer of the Ocean. In order to maintain herself, the Ocean must feed; sirens help her to do that.Kahlen and her "sisters," Marilyn and Aisling, begin the story and you find out quite a lot of how sirens and their lives work. They ar [...]

      This is a retelling of the classic fairy tale, The Little Mermaid, and due to being fascinated and familiar with both the story and mermaid lore in general, this was a highly anticipated release for me. And, as you can probably guess from my rating, I was left a little disappointed.I felt the story opened strongly. The reader is thrust straight into the heart of the action with no preamble and we oversee the death of the main protagonist's parents and her subsequent rebirth in mermaid form, all [...]

      I hate to say this but even though the book wasn’t really bad, it wasn’t anything much else either. In other words, it was simply meh. Actually in retrospect, it was kind of bad. Just kind of. I couldn’t wait to finish it not because it’s compelling or anything. I just wanted to be over with it which I wasn’t expecting to be feeling because despite the Selection Series being a cheesy fairytale dystopia, I found the writing gripping and it’s why I liked it. I’m sad to say that that [...]

      “She told me to live. . . . I didn’t know how to tell Her that simply being alive was not enough to be called living.” Mixed feelings about this one. This book obviously isn't as good as The Selection. But it had huge potential in it and I wish Kiera Cass used it. I liked the main idea of the book however it would be much more better if it was longer, maybe a duology? There are so many questions that re unanswered in the book. First of, why ocean eats humans? or why does she needs sinkings [...]

      Kiera Cass has that style to write books which are kind of cute and really easy to get into them but at some points everything turns out so predictive and nothing surprised me and specially in this book. In The Selection books I kind of read all of them really fast and I enjoyed them a lot, but The Siren I had to force myself a little bit to keep reading it and the plot was kind of cheesy. If there's something that I really liked was the relationship between the sisters butdly that's all. I enjo [...]

      I heard the door to the spare room creak and pretended to be asleep, but hoping I could pull off looking like a normal person for just a few more hours.I felt a warm hand touch my forehead. And then my cheek. I held my act steady though Akinli's touch made me feel more than awake."Where in the world did you come from, you beautiful, silent girl?" he whispered. After along moment, I heard him slowly creep out of the room, quietly closing the door behind him.Written by the infamous author of The S [...]

      1.5/5It was my intention to write a more coherent review, but after months of not doing it I'm just pasting the notes I took while reading/directly after finishing. So I apologize for the slight stream of consciousness style review.So much instalove. She met him. He was cute. They baked a cake together and of course she loves him forever and ever and can't live without him. Literally.Also, Akinli's creepy candle wax burn was so ridiculously creepy. Seriously, GTFO of this book.It felt more like [...]

      A pesar del orden de publicación, The Siren fue el primer libro que escribió Kiera Cass y eso se nota muchísimo en el estilo, la manera de escribir y el cómo nos cuenta la autora la historia. Pero bueno, antes de decirles de qué va The Siren, quiero contarles que la historia me sorprendió muchísimo. La aproximación de Kiera Cass a la figura mitológica de la sirena me dejó muy intrigada, pues no era para nada lo que me esperaba. Vamos, que suponía que iba a ser algo muy tipo La Sirenit [...]

      “There’s always room for love. Even if it’s as small as a crack in the door.”Oh, The Siren you had so much promise! Why didn't you live up to all your potential?I have such mixed emotions about The Siren. I wanted to love this such much. I saw the beautiful hardcover book in the store and read the summary and I was instantly sold. It's my first book from Kiera Cass, so I won't be drawing any comparisons between this and The Selection series. This is also my first book about sirens and it [...]

      This book was nothing like The Selection series and I really enjoyed that. I really enjoyed how modern this book was because stories like this that I read are usually set in the past or in a different universe that I could never picture on Earth. It was an easy read and just a cute romance. This was the definitely the kind of book I needed. It wasn't super complex like some books I've read that make your brain hurt but included some things that were very captivating and enjoyable to read. I real [...]

      Release the gowns.The name Kiera Cass is synonymous with young adult, instant love, cliche storylines and of course ballgowns. Her Selection series covers are absolutely stunning and considering the predicament her protagonist America finds herself in, are well suited to the storyline and a great representation. Her novels are perfect for early teen readers who love a fairytale romance. The Siren on the other hand managed to weave underwater ballgowns into the storyline and although I enjoyed it [...]

      Wow, Kiera Cass has such talent. She is definately an author to watch! The Siren covers decades all in 276 pages, and you never once find yourself bored, only overcome with a need to know what happens next. You grow with the characters and experience their life. The Siren had me crying at numerous points and I'm by no means a big crier in books. It wasn't just sad parts that had me crying either, I was tearing up over some of the happiest parts of the book. Parts of The Siren were so heartbreaki [...]

      DNF at page 122.I know I have been DNFing like crazy, but when the main character says she has fallen in love with a boy when she has spent no more than real time 2 hours with him, I no longer take the book seriously. It for real made me roll my eyes.

      I cannot express how much I loved this book. Sweet. Heartwarming. THE SIREN is a story about many different kinds of love. I cried happy and sad tears. Once again, Kiera Cass delivered a tale that kept me reading late into the night. I can't explain it. Her books are sirens of their own.
