Siren Song (The Fated #1)
"It's a curse."
"Curse, or blessing, those are the red strings of fate. The gods have chosen you to change our world, whether you want to or not."
Iliana Katrakis couldn't care less about the will of the gods, and she's certain they feel the same way about her.
After all, it's rare for the god-touched to live normal lives--and that's all she wants. Having spent the last three years aboard the merchant ship Airlea, Iliana couldn't be happier. Sure, her best friend Kain is the only one who knows she's a girl, but it's a good life. The work is simple, and her shipmates are the closest thing to a family she has.
Fate, however, is not on her side.
A storm tosses the Airlea wildly off course. Within the day, she's stranded, alone and injured, on a foggy island known only as Inna's Cove. She's given a choice: become one of the islands' goddess blessed sirens and rescue her best friend, or take her chance with the monster-infested woods. The choice seems obvious.
That is, until the mercenaries arrive. Their captain wants a siren--and not even the threat of the goddess' wrath will change his mind.
