it was amazing

I have been in the captivating Siren thrall of this book for several decadent, glorious days. This, my friends, is the perfect ocean fantasy escape - and, hands down, one of the sexiest, dark fantasies I've ever read. Shining Sea is so gorgeously written I fell completely under its tidal, musical spell. The supernatural Siren in this book is an alluring teenaged guy, and our human protagonist, Arion, the daughter of a coast guard father who lives in a lighthouse (how's that for atmosphere). Mimi Cross's sirens are the most dangerous, alluring, SEXIEST thing since vampires (they may actually best vampires in that regard - really). The author is a musician and lyricist, and she brings that sensibility stunningly to the page as she writes about these supernatural creatures that seduce you with their Song so they can the steal breath from your body. But what happens when a dangerous, predatory Siren falls in love with a human girl? Oh, and there's a love triangle - dangerous Siren Bo vs. hot human boy Logan (hilarious, sexy dialogue with this one) who knows something is just not right about Bo Summers. Do not miss this stand-out fantasy. You will feel like you are at the Maine ocean side surrounded by the Siren's irresistible, frightening, intoxicating call. Please, Mimi Cross, hurry up with the next book - I am willing to bribe you to get more of this story (give me more and I'll write you into my next book as an Asrai Water Fae with an ocean kindred and an army of kelpies, lol). Bravo, Mimi Cross. Standing ovation. #TeamLogan
