Tricia Rayburn is the author of Ruby’s Slippers and the Maggie Bean trilogy. Despite fearing all creatures of the deep, she’s still drawn to the water and makes her home in a seaside town on eastern Long Island in America.
This page-turning, roller-coaster story is vividly told by seventeen year old Vanessa, the timid younger sister who has always replied on her older sister Justine for protection. From the first day of their regular summer visit to their beach home, things are strange for Justine and Vanessa. They meet the dreamy brothers Caleb and Simon as usual but after that, nothing is the same again. When Justine dies in a freak accident, Vanessa has to be brave on her own. The more she discovers, the more frightened she becomes – especially about herself!
The sea is calling . . . A year after the events that killed her sister and turned her into a siren, Vanessa is desperately trying to put her family back together and reclaim a 'normal' life. But no matter how many times she swims, or how much salt water she drinks, she can feel herself getting weaker and weaker. Meanwhile she's desperately trying to come to terms with her break-up with Simon. Her first love, who she drove away with her siren's wandering eye. Then her biological mother shows up at her summer house in Maine - claiming she is a Nenuphar, the most powerful of all sirens. She promises that she wants to help the daughter from whom she's been separated for far too long. But can Vanessa trust her? Now Vanessa must face the harshest . . .
The sirens are back, but Vanessa may be the biggest threat of all . . . Nothing has been normal since Vanessa Sands learned that her sister was murdered by sirens - femme fatales of the watery depths - and that everything she believed about herself and her family was a lie. Vanessa has always told her boyfriend Simon everything. But she worries that if he finds out who - or what - she truly is, he'll run a mile. To make things worse, when Parker, Hawthorne Prep's resident charmer, shows an interest in her, she can't resist the siren's urge to stray. And on top of all this, she's trying to be strong for her parents as they come to terms with her sister's death. But personal problems must be put aside, because the Winter Harbor sirens are back for revenge. Now Vanessa must face her past and accept that she is just like her enemies - every bit as alluring and every bit as dangerous.
Something deadly waits beneath the waves off Winter Harbour, and this summer, no one's safe. Seventeen-year-old Vanessa Sands is afraid of the dark. And heights. And the ocean. And pretty much everything else. Fortunately, Vanessa's fearless older sister, Justine, has always been there to comfort her. That is until Justine jumps off a cliff near their family's holiday home in Winter Harbour, her lifeless body washing ashore the next day. Everyone assumes that the tragedy is an accidental result of Justine's adventurous ways. Everyone, that is, except Vanessa. Vanessa returns to Winter Harbour alone, looking for answers from Caleb Carmichael, Justine's summer love who was with her when she jumped. But when Vanessa learns that Caleb has been missing since Justine's death, she joins forces with Caleb's older brother, Simon, to try to find him. Soon, it's not just Vanessa who is afraid. Panic sweeps through Winter Harbour as more bodies wash ashore, all male, each victim found grinning from ear to ear. And as the death toll mounts, Vanessa realises that to save Caleb and solve the mystery of her sister's death, she has to confront a secret she's kept for years - one that could end her summer romance with Simon and even life as she knows it. An utterly gripping paranormal romance for Twilight fans sick of copy-cat vampire novels but in love with paranormal romance.
