4.5 stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟💫
On a rainy September morning 16-year old Ailen Bright flees her abusice father by jumping off the Seattle Aurora Bridge. Instead of a true death, in the water she finds several silver-skinned sirens who convert her to one of their own. As a new born siren she is dead, supernaturally strong, and hungry for her new sustenance- human souls. Ailen refuse to kill……at first. With time she must face the agony that comes with starvation, while being relentlessly pursued by a siren hunter. An enthralling and dark look into the mind and heart of a suicidal teenager, this urban fantasy follows Ailen’s struggle to figure out the meaning of life, her confusing feelings for her best friend Hunter, and her desperate battle.
Wow! Like wow. I finished this so quick because I was just so invested with the whole plot and the characters. But still took this long to write a review ( stupid me 🙄). But oh my god! This was soo good. I loved Kesnia’s writing style so much. It’s seems so lyrical and flows effortlessly 👌🏻. And I absolutely adored the characters. Ailen might be one of my favourite protagonist. I related with her emotions so much, and she’s not the typical YA heroine. Her characters is so raw and realistic. Like a normal teenager ( FINALLY) and had flaws that made her more realistic. And awesome in my opinion. I’m tired of the clichés. And Hunter! Oh my lord. HUNTER. I don’t know what to say 😭. I just loved him so so much, and I’m kinda sad that the book is over. I miss him already 😂. I don’t normally re-read books. But this is definitely part of the minority. And I WILL re-read this. Because I loved it just that much 🙈
