Take everything you know about sirens and throw it into the toilet!

In this YA Romance, Kiera Cass takes a whole new outlook on the lore of sirens.

Kahlen is a siren who pledged her life to the ocean after she almost drowned in the 50s with the agreement that after 100 years of service to the ocean she would return as a human and able to live out her life… but almost 60 years later, everything changes when she meets Akinli, a young human boy. --Lila

Akinli is human—a kind, handsome boy who’s everything Kahlen ever dreamed of. Falling in love puts them both in danger… but will Kahlen risk everything to follow her heart?

Praise For…

“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.”
