Her song is a gift bestowed by the gods; so why does it feel like a curse?
Seventeen-year-old Wren thinks she has just swum away from the greatest threat in the sea. That's until she finds herself being hauled upon a warlord's boat. With her life at the mercy of a young, temperamental King, Wren must decide who is her ultimate enemy.
Can Fate be altered? What do gods have planned?
Syrens are bound to tell the truth, but that doesn’t mean their lives cannot be riddled with lies.
“Flip it. I’ll choose either ‘Face’ or ‘Fin’, if I am wrong then I’ll drink, if I’m right, you drink. Simple.” I scrunch my nose and examine the coin closely. I don’t know how, but this game feels rigged in his favour. “Alright,” I say hesitantly, “But if I find out you’re cheating I’ll summon Cerberus to chew you up and spit you out.” “Can you summon Cerberus?” he asks with an arched brow. “I haven’t had to try…yet,” I say with a shrug. He chuckles. It’s a magnificent melody. There is something so wholly mortal about it, and although I wish otherwise, I find myself savouring the sound and remembering it for future use. It may not be a syren song, but it’s something I wish to practice more of. “I do not cheat; I just don’t lose,” he informs me. “You can’t always win.” I toss the coin high into the air. It gyrates in the candlelight between us, splashing dots of golden light across Kellan’s shadowed face. I catch the coin with both hands. “Watch me,” he says casually, “It’s fin.” I unclasp my palms slowly as if I were releasing a dragonfly. I feel his smugness before I even see the coin. He hands me the refilled cap with a grin, “Best of three?”
