Sing Me to Sleep

Sing Me to Sleep


Words sting. Songs kill.

The Cruel Prince meets To Kill a Kingdom in this seductive YA fantasy debut, in which a siren must choose between protecting her family and following her heart in a prejudiced kingdom where her existence is illegal.

Saoirse Sorkova survives on secrets. As the last siren in her kingdom, she can sing any man to an early grave - but her very existence is illegal, and if her true identity were ever discovered, it would be her life on the line.

By day, Saoirse disguises herself as a fae, pretending to be the perfect soldier-in-training. By night, she satisfies her darker urges working as an assassin for dangerous mercenaries. And all the while, she keeps the biggest secret of all: that she is not always in control of her Siren powers, or her desire to kill.

Then a blackmailer threatens her sister, and Saoirse's investigation takes her to the royal palace, and her most dangerous job yet: personal bodyguard to the Crown Prince.

Saoirse expects to despise Prince Hayes. But he is kind, thoughtful, and charming, and she finds herself increasingly drawn to him . . . until he tasks her with investigating a killer plaguing the kingdom. The problem: the killer is Saoirse.

Trapped by her deadly double life, Saoirse can't leave the palace until she saves her sister . . . but who will save her from herself?

Our Review

Sing Me To Sleep was a tremendous read. I discovered it as part of a book fairy campaign and luckily I had time to read it beforehand. 

"I kill because I need to, and when I don't need to, I kill because I want to."

I love fantasy books and this one has a unique feel to it. I have never read a book about sirens so I was very excited to read Sing Me To Sleep

"I'm beautiful. Not arrogant, just honest. My birthright is coiling men so tightly around my finger, they'll willingly follow me to an early, watery grave - beauty is a given." 

I love that Saoirse was not a perfect character, but you could route for her anyway. A part of her knows that she should resist her siren urge to kill but she can't. 

I loved the relationship between Saoirse and her sister Rain, her devotion to her. The whole palace job scenario is so much more believable because of the strength of their relationship.

Sing Me To Sleep was wonderful and I can't wait to read book two.
