The coauthors of the best-selling House of Night series reunite with a haunting, romantic, suspense-filled original novella in the Escaped series.
Eons ago, Sirens were exiled from the Mortal Realm and held captive in a cove at the edge of Tartarus. They are beautiful beyond imagination, but deadly beyond compare. And they have set their sights on breaking free.
They risk everything to sneak out of Tartarus and ascend to the forbidden Mortal Realm with one mission: to mate with human men to dilute their cursed bloodline and form a new race of Sirens, free from their prison in the Underworld. But for a Siren to become pregnant, she must revert to her true form, a horrifying sight that drives men to madness and makes killing them a mercy. In modern San Francisco, the Sirens blend in; each woman has a singular goal and each man she meets is her prey.
Melody Seirina has always been different. She doesn't believe that she'll be able to bring herself to take a human life, even when the fate of her people rests on her willingness to do so. She's even more convinced when she meets Dean, a charming cop who sees a loving future with her. Their romance threatens two worlds, the one the Sirens fled from, and the one that will destroy them if they can't complete their mission as soon as possible. Melody will have to make a decision: risk the future of her people or follow her heart.
After reading Amber Smoke and Scarlet Rain, this book was next. Definitely a change of tone. Compared to previous entries, this was definitely more of a related experience in my own opinion. I loved the entirety of t!his novella just like all the books I have encountered (both physical and digital). It was perfect and the pace was done just right from beginning to end.
wow i lovw this one but it was too shorter than the rest of the others hope theres more to come
