For as long as Esmerine can remember, she has longed to join her older sister, Dosinia, as a siren--the highest calling a mermaid can have. When Dosinia runs away to the mainland, Esmerine is sent to retrieve her. Using magic to transform her tail into legs, she makes her way unsteadily to the capital city. There she comes upon a friend she hasn't seen since childhood--a dashing young man named Alander, who belongs to a winged race of people. As Esmerine and Alander band together to search for Dosinia, they rekindle a friendship . . . and ignite the emotions for a love so great, it cannot be bound by sea, land, or air
Esmerine has just become a Siren at the age of 16, her older sister Dosinia 'Dosia' is also a Siren the only two in their family.
Ever since they were both little they always spoke of exploring the land, Esmerine used to have a friend named Alander a Faransee (a winged person) who taught her how to read and write, then he went away and she hasn't seen him in quite a few years.
The day after Esmerine is made a Siren she fonds Dosia missing she recalls her talking about meeting some human men and is afraid that one of them have captured her, so she offers to go and look for her.
She sets off and finds Alander working in a bookstore and he offers to help her find her sister, and a romance develops between them along the way.
I loved this book it reminded me of those fairytales I used to read when I was younger with the Happy Ever After ending.
This book had been on my wishlist for a very long time and the cover which is gorgeous, had a lot to do with it
So if you're in the mood for a fairytale romance, with a bit of adventure this is the book for you.
I give this 4/5.
