Review by: D.A. Henneman
Genre: YA Fantasy/Mythology
The Sirens of Falkeld is a beautifully written story with rich, well-developed characters that pull you into their world from the very start. If mermaids were real, and honestly I won’t be the one to say they aren’t, I imagine that they would be very much like Cora, curious and lovely, but compelled by her nature to kill humans. Her confusion leads to self-awareness and the author has an amazing way of describing the emotions that flood through her when she meets Kade. Their meeting makes Cora question her purpose and ultimately changes her destiny.
Kade believes a wish from a mermaid is what he needs to save his Grandfather’s life. He knows they are real, he saw one the night his father went out to the sea and disappeared. What he isn’t prepared for is just how closely tied Cora is to his past.
Ms. Tuovi’s descriptive writing style is easy to visualize, and allows the reader to experience the characters journey first hand. I will definitely read more from this author, and am looking forward to seeing what she comes up with next.
