Sirena is cursed. She will not become immortal unless she is loved by a human man. The siren song she sings with her mermaid sisters makes men adore her -- yet it leads them to their deaths.
That is why she hides when she finds an abandoned young soldier. He wants to know her, though she should not let him near her or allow him to hear her sing. But how can she fight a love she has been waiting for all her life -- a love that will make her live forever?
Based on a story in Homer's Odyssey, Sirena is a tour de force by award-winning author Donna Jo Napoli.
