Dark and romantic YA fantasy about the siren with a taste for royal blood and the prince who has sworn to destroy her.
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. Hunting sirens is more than an unsavoury hobby - it's his calling. When he rescues a drowning woman in the ocean, she's more than what she appears. She promises to help him find the key to destroying all of sirenkind for good.
But can he trust her? And just how many deals will Elian have to barter to eliminate mankind's greatest enemy?
In a dark debut novel inspired by The Little Mermaid, a human prince and a siren transformed into a human embark on a perilous journey filled with blood, gore, and treachery as they struggle with a sense of duty and thirst for freedom. As a siren princess, 17-year-old Lira knows that every prince she kills is a means to an end: namely, proving to her people that she's strong and cruel enough to become queen one day. But everything she has worked for is wrenched away from her by her vindictive and power-hungry mother, who transforms Lira into a human after Lira allows a prince, the siren-killer Elian, to escape. To redeem herself, she must return with Elian's heart, so she joins him on a quest to find the Eye of Keto, a magic-granting crystal that could help Lira win back her mother's favor or free the sirens of her tyrannical rule. With well-crafted fight scenes and vivid descriptions, Christo has created a world of beauty and monstrosity that will draw readers in. Ages 13-up.)\n
