Review

Siren is the first book by Kiera Cass  that I have read.  The Siren  is the story of Kahlen, 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. They serve the Ocean for 100 years, but when Kahlen meets a human  boy her life will never be the same.

This is a straight  forward and classic story. Girl meets boy falls in love but it is forbidden.  But it is because  of this traditional  element that it makes it a beautiful  love story.

Love is a strong theme throughout this story. The love of a parent, love of a sister, love of family, love of the partner. It explores each of these relationships  as the story  unfolds and characters are introduced.

The characters Cass creates are clear and full of life, whether they are a major or a minor. Even the Ocean takes life as she  speaks, and  breathes.   

This is the perfect book for a weekend read. So put the kettle on and get comfortable.
