War is brewing beneath the sidewalks of Washington, DC . . . and Molly just sang her way into the middle of it.
Molly doesn’t know there’s anything unusual about her voice—she only knows that performing with her band makes her happier than anything else in the world.
But everything changes on the night that Molly does more than just entertain her audience—she accidentally entrances them, and narrowly avoids setting off a riot.
Now, she’s being hunted by a mysterious group that believes she is descended from the Sirens—and that she’s unworthy of the power she possesses. To survive, she must plunge into a secret world of human-Siren hybrids, where there’s no easy way to know who to trust.
With time running out, can Molly learn to wield the power inside her before the hunters silence her forever?
Molly has out run her past and has worked hard on leaving it all behind. She is not part of a band and gets to perform and do what she loves every night. However one night the bands set doesnt really go as planned and Molly is thrown into a world she doesn’t understand and must once again fight gor her life.
First I would like to talk about how utterly gorgeous this cover is! I have learned my lesson from Cover Buying when I purchase a book because the cover was so ridiculously pretty but was filled with a very ugly story. So I was so skeptical when I came across this stunning cove and my fingers itched to one click it. My faith is now restored in cover buys guys! :insert sad violin music: My wallet is not happy!
I found the story itself to be incredibly imaginative and original. The story is gritty and dark but at the same time beautiful- The characters have all faced such horrible events in their life are written to be strong and each beautifully broken. Th author touches so many sensitive subjects and does so with grace and an almost delicacy that I applaud and I can not wait to see what happens in the rest of this series!
I love the story and its many plot twist and turns and am quickly addicted to Molly’s story. Now I will admit that yes there are some rough patches in the book where I feel at times the author was trying to get all her thoughts down but it may have come off a bit rushed or jumbled. However the base of this novel makes up for that. As the first in the series I only expect it to get better and better!
