Aria is not like the Sirens. She lacks their sultry deception, the dark magic that lures sailors to enchanted demise. They call her the mer-maid, neither accepting Aria as part of the Mer nor being one of the daughters of men. Mer can be cursed. Men are food. Love is forbidden. And one must never - ever - kiss a human. ~~ #40 in fantasy on Nov 16, 2016!
