Publisher Description

A TIKTOK sensation!

An unforgettable dark romantic YA fantasy about the siren with a taste for royal blood and the prince who has sworn to destroy her.

"Stellar world building and nonstop action will keep readers hooked on this twisted reimagining of 'The Little Mermaid'." Booklist Online

Princess Lira is siren royalty and the most lethal of them all. With the hearts of seventeen princes in her collection, she is revered across the sea. Until a twist of fate forces her to kill one of her own. To punish her daughter, the Sea Queen transforms Lira into the one thing they loathe most - a human. Robbed of her song, Lira has until the winter solstice to deliver Prince Elian's heart to the Sea Queen or remain a human forever.

The ocean is the only place Prince Elian calls home, even though he is heir to the most powerful kingdom in the world. His calling? Ridding the world of the menace of the sirens. But when he rescues a drowning woman, it becomes clear that there's more to her than there first appeared.

She promises to help him find the key to destroying the sirens for good. But can he trust her?

Pirates of the Caribbean if the mermaid was the main character.

To Kill a Kingdom is a fresh, exciting young adult novel with an adventurous premise, well-rounded characters and enough lust and betrayal to keep you roped in.

This novel has one of my favourite YA tropes - enemies to lovers. While most books with this trope are shy about making the two characters enemies, Alexandra Christo does not hold back... and I'm sure glad she didn't. A siren, and a siren-killer... they were born to hate each other. The chemistry and passion between these two made me not want to put this book down. Throughout the course of their quest the two fight their growing attraction for each other.

This book reminded me of a mix between Pirates of the Caribbean and one of my favourite underrated films: Sinbad. I've always been so intrigued about mermaids and here they are, explored beautifully in one beautiful book. I love it!

Captivating

This story had me from the first chapter. The limitless imagination formed perfectly into a spell-binding tale had me captivated - it was hard to put down.

Underwhelming

Predictable & flat. She built such a beautiful character in Lira but everything else was mediocre.
