Book Review: The Siren by Kiera Cass

The Siren

A young woman, bound to the sea, struggles to keep her century long vow to the ocean that saved her when she meets the one. A young man who survives the sirens’ song.


  • The play on soulmates was interesting.
  • The main character and her relationships with the other sirens was touching. I appreciate books with these kind of strong, platonic bonds.
  • The ocean as a character was interesting. Her voice and purpose in the story added a great deal to the plot and wove in seamlessly.
  • The author has a pretty clean and clear writing style.
  • The end scene was swest.

Least Favorites:

  • The narrator provides a dizzying amount of exposition early in the story. It took me out of the story quite a bit.
  • The romance was outlandish. It’s another book that sets unrealistic standards of relationships.
  • The foreshadowing was blatant in a few places.

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐
