Surging veins crept like black spiders from the corners of her eyes, transforming the surrounding skin...the human form would soon be lost...
Sirens in mythology were sensual maidens, famed for luring sailors to their deaths with beauty and song. Kalista Mett is a real siren. She feeds on the energy of any living thing. The ability to create and control fire makes her far more dangerous. And she walks the earth among humans.
From the instant she meets the stranger with unworldly eyes, Kali knows there is something special between them. But she doesn’t remember Rhane or anything from their past. As far as Kali knows, she's just a seventeen-year-old kid coping with an insatiable hunger for the “spark” or energy of others, feeding on classmates to survive.
When a unique artifact—one that may hold the key to returning Kali’s memories—is uncovered by the archaeology firm where she works part-time, Kali and Rhane end up on a dangerous journey that leads them to the Forbidden City, into the unforgiving Gobi, and into the ruins of Rhane’s ancient homeland. As they fight for survival, Kali begins to discover who she really is and the true power she possesses. But Rhane still harbors a secret that could destroy Kali…unless old enemies kill her first.
