Siren follows seventeen year old Vanessa and her family as they set out for their annual vacation in a small seaside town.
Tragedy strikes the family when Vanessa's older sisters body washes up on the shore and she is only the first in a long line of water related deaths in the area. People are washing up on shore almost everyday and their bodies are always grinning ear to ear.
Vanessa decides to do some investigating of her own and realises that her sister kept secrets from her, massive secrets! Digging a little deeper Vanessa soon discovers the truth about the sleepy little town of Winter Harbour.
Soon the race is on, not only to get some closure for her sister's death, but also to protect the residents of Winter Harbour and protect her friends from these creepy going-ons thats happening.
At first I found Siren quite difficult to get into, it took me about 3 days just to get past the first 5 chapters. I don't know why that is, but I am really glad I stuck with it because the book really picks up about halfway through.
Vanessa is a very well written character, I found myself cheering her on or shouting at her asking "why are you not doing something?!". She is a very life like and believable character.
I really enjoyed this book, especially the murder mystery feel to it before Vanessa discovers what is really happening. It was almost as if anyone could be the next victim and you wanted to read as quickly as you could to fins out who was going to be next.
I've heard talk of a second book, I'm not entirely sure if this is true or not. To be honest I haven't looked into it yet. I'm not entirely sure what a second book would have to say about the story, as for me this book was all wrapped up at the end.
