Death would have been easier, but the Siren wasn’t through with her.
Seventeen-year-old Maggie Trent fell out of a battle and into the Siren’s Realm, a land where secrets hide in the shadows and pleasure comes at a price Maggie is unwilling to pay.
The time for the Siren’s reckoning has come, sweeping away all she deems unworthy to live in her realm. Those without magic are hunted by the Siren. Those with magic are hunted by the Stricken. Fighting or hiding seem necessary to survive. But there is a different way.
Bertrand Wayland, unaging and unrelenting in his determination for Maggie to accept her fate, slips in and out through the stitches that bind the Siren’s Realm to other worlds, gaining magic and having glorious adventures. When Maggie follows Bertrand out of the Siren’s Realm, seeking an adventure of her own, she finds instead a world of magic on the eve of war. To save innocent lives Maggie risks her heart, her life, and her only chance of returning to the Siren’s Realm.

REVIEW*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.
Well I have to say this book is sure different, but in a good way I must say. We get to meet Maggie who thinks she is dead only to find out that she has been transferred to a place known as the Siren's Realm where her magic is finite. The magic will not replace itself but instead must be earned so she pretends to be completely normal in order to keep what she came with. She thinks life is going great until reality shows her otherwise so when she gets chance she follows a friend on an adventure to a whole new world. I gotta say there is some excellent world building in this novel though not so much that the reader is overwhelmed. Just enough to provide a nice visual and keep the story moving. The premise leaves lots of room for imagination and the author sure utilizes that to her advantage. I got caught up in maggie's adventure and was kind-of sad when it was all over. If you enjoy a good YA paranormal fantasy novel then you have got to give this book a shot. I really enjoyed it so I give it 4/5 stars.
