Forget whatever you think you know. History has been rewritten, and the future is in peril.
In a world where rising ocean levels swallow coastal cities and people scramble for resources on an overpopulated earth, the survival of the human race depends on biogenetic research to develop aquatic abilities. The year is 2098, and it has never been more dangerous for the elusive Sirens to be discovered.
Until now, the Sirens have remained hidden from the human world, inhabiting an obscure, undiscovered island in the Indian Ocean. Amid growing discontent among their youth, the Sirens, led by headstrong Mello Seaford, decide to test the waters of open society by striking a deal with the all-powerful megacorporation, DiviniGen Inc.
And they risk everything to do it.
Will the risk prove worth it, or will the Sirens be subjected to the diabolical whims of humanity?
Now, this book had me a bit confused at first, with so many different points of view. It almost felt like I was getting whiplash trying to keep everything and everyone straight, but I continued on, gripped by the story plot itself. Eventually, the separate stories started coming together, and I was no longer lost in the slightest. The sci-fi aspect, the lore, all of it came together really well for me, and I thoroughly enjoyed this! The characters were well written in general, and the lines of thought were easy to follow. I definitely recommend this to all who love mermaids or delightful twists on the classic mermaid legends. Very entertaining!
