  • “I really really loved this story. I loved that I finally found something fun, interesting, and magical, set in our world (which is a personal love of mine) and centering around music (so hard to find, and as a musician myself, I’m so excited about the power of music in this story). It doesn’t have a cliched love story or love triangle (which I hate).” – Selina Eckert, Amazon reviewer

Sound of Sirens by Jen Minkman 

On the island of Skylge, electricity is only for the Currents – the rich ruling class who brought the holy fire of St. Brandan. Ever since, the light in the Brandaris Tower has protected the islanders from the Sirens living in the deep waters around the island.
When Skylger girl Enna welcomes her brother back from a sea voyage, he gives her a present from the mainland: an electronic record, only playable on Current devices. Enna strikes up a bargain with Royce, the local Current heartthrob, to share the LP and listen to it together – an act punishable by death. But soon she discovers that there’s more than meets the eye when it comes to Current society and the history of Skylge. Why do the Sirens tempt the islanders to give themselves up to the sea – and where does the Currents’ monopoly on electricity really come from? While struggling with these questions, Enna begins to fall for Royce, risking everything to be with a guy who is clearly wrong for her. The sound of Sirens isn’t the most treacherous thing out there to haunt her dreams…
