NERD BLAST: The Siren's Tale (Book 2 of the Home Schooling Trilogy) by Anne Carlisle
Welcome to the Nerd Blast for Anne Carlisle's second book of the Home Schooling Trilogy...
It's 1900 in remote Wyoming, where a smart young siren in human form falls into a trap. Because of a curse, her lover may die if she acts on her passionate instincts.
The novel is a new take on speculative fiction, treating real coming-of-age issues of choice for modern young women and meanwhile weaving a cautionary tale of paranormal romance and terror set in the distant past.
This is the story of a group of sirens, told in part by the ghost of the main character, Cassandra. The sirens are creatures who are part human but who have strange powers and skills. Cassandra's love life in the Old West results in a curse which passes down the generations.
A family of paranormal women, an ancient lineage of sirens in human form, are threatened by extinction, unless Marlena, the youngest, carries her pregnancy to term in 1977. Cassandra, the siren ghost, tells Marlena her own story, how back in 1900 in Wyoming, she followed her passion rather than a code of human values. Falling into a trap, she brought on the family curse and disaster. Now the men loved by the sirens face an untimely end.
