Rhonda Parrishabout this book: When it was time for me to pitch the latest title in my Magical Menageries series I was struck, like lightning, with one idea--Sirens. Not *just* mermaid-type sirens, though I wanted them too, but also the bird-like ones. And so the idea for Sirens: Sea and Sky was born. In the end the subtitle never made it onto the cover (I'm cool with that) but the concept definitely made it onto the pages!
Sirens are beautiful, dangerous, and musical, whether they come from the sea or the sky. Greek sirens were described as part-bird, part-woman, and Roman sirens more like mermaids, but both had a voice that could captivate and destroy the strongest man. The pages of this book contain the stories of the Sirens of old, but also allow for modern re-imaginings, plucking the sirens out of their natural elements and placing them at a high school football game, or in wartime London, or even into outer space.
Featuring stories by Kelly Sandoval, Amanda Kespohl, L.S. Johnson, Pat Flewwelling, Gabriel F. Cuellar, Randall G. Arnold, Micheal Leonberger, V. F. LeSann, Tamsin Showbrook, Simon Kewin, Cat McDonald, Sandra Wickham, K.T. Ivanrest, Adam L. Bealby, Eliza Chan, and Tabitha Lord, these siren songs will both exemplify and defy your expectations.
