Narrators Jennifer Haralson and Andrea Lang deliver a contemporary fantasy with a focus on social justice. Tavia, a siren whose magical power to control others must be kept secret, is portrayed with gentle vulnerability by Haralson. Effie, depicted warmly by Lang, is afflicted with a strange skin condition and has no clues about her heritage. These best friends navigate high school drama, crushes, and the secrets their families keep from them. Chapters alternate first-person perspectives, and a leisurely pace gradually intensifies as a suspected siren’s murder trial unfolds. In a parallel plot, Tavia unleashes her voice during a police stop. While some conversations between characters don't offer enough character differentiation, overall, this is an exciting listen.
