Publisher Description

In this dark and seductive YA fantasy debut, a siren must choose between protecting her family and following her heart in a prejudiced kingdom where her existence is illegal.

Saoirse Sorkova survives on lies. As a soldier-in-training at the most prestigious barracks in the kingdom, she lies about being a siren to avoid execution. At night, working as an assassin for a dangerous group of mercenaries, Saoirse lies about her true identity. And to her family, Saoirse tells the biggest lie of all: that she can control her siren powers and doesn't struggle constantly against an impulse to kill.

As the top trainee in her class, Saoirse would be headed for a bright future if it weren't for the need to keep her secrets out of the spotlight. But when a mysterious blackmailer threatens her sister, Saoirse takes a dangerous job that will help her investigate: she becomes personal bodyguard to the crown prince.

Saoirse should hate Prince Hayes. After all, his father is the one who enforces the kingdom's brutal creature segregation laws. But when Hayes turns out to be kind, thoughtful, and charming, Saoirse finds herself increasingly drawn to him-especially when they're forced to work together to stop a deadly killer who's plaguing the city. There's only one problem: Saoirse is that deadly killer.

Featuring an all Black and Brown cast, a forbidden romance, and a compulsively dark plot full of twists, this thrilling YA fantasy is perfect for fans of A Song Below Water and To Kill a Kingdom.

Thinking Face“I wished I liked this more. The plot and world building were okay. But I didn’t really care for Saoirse as an MC bc it didn’t seem like she had any remorse and she could never admit that she was the problem. Other than that, I’m somewhat satisfied w the ending but I’m not sure if I’ll continue on w the series tbh 😕”

Thumbs Up“Hmm, this is the 4th Bloomsbury YA book I've read in a row. I was excited to dive in, yet just found myself pushing through to confirm my predictions. I was irritated with the main character and wanted her to show some more growth. I found the plot to be okay, yet found Hayes' response at the end to be a bit unbelievable. I wasn't able to become immersed in this world. It needs more world building. Additionally, I wanted it to combine the myths with Afrocentric culture a bit more.”

Surprised Face with Open Mouth“Great debut novel ! The story flows well, Hayes is charming, and the plot twists towards the end are AMAZING. Saoirse’s relationship with her sister reminds me of Katniss and Prim. I think I would have liked a bit more time and development between Saoirse and Hayes though. Excited to see where Gabi Burton will lead us with this one!”
