Gemma Fisher has fallen under an ancient curse—and inherited all the strange new powers that came along with it.  Now she’s more beautiful and powerful than ever, but she’s also plagued by unspeakable hungers…and she’s not sure how much longer she can resist.  A danger to everyone she loves, she has no choice but to leave her old life behind and enter a strange new world filled with breathtaking beauty…and dark secrets.

Harper won’t give up on finding her sister Gemma, vowing to bring her home no matter what the cost.  The search draws her closer to too-gorgeous-for-his-own-good Daniel, and tests her fiercely-guarded independence like never before.  She’s always been the strong one who everyone else depends on…can she let herself depend on Daniel?

As Gemma and Harper plunge deeper into a magical world they barely understand, it becomes painfully clear that Gemma’s old life may be lost forever…unless her friends can save her.


There were a lot of elements about this book that surprised me (in a good way). Amanda Hocking has taken the dangerous sirens that we know, and made them even more dangerous and frightening, but also intriguing. You get to know the characters really well in this sequel, you understand why the characters do certain things, and you understand the two main characters (Harper and Gemma) connection. You connect with the characters pretty well, and the plot starts to pick up in this second book.

The guys in the book (Danielle and Alex) are good looking, sweet, and brave. You might even find yourself falling for Harper and Gemma's boyfriends.
