About This Book

Sirena has listened to the stories of the gods: If she is to become immortal, she must be loved by a human man. But when she and her sisters sing their siren songs to the Greek sailors on their way to the Trojan War, the men crash their ships upon the rocks and drown.

There is one survivor of the carnage Philoctetes, friend to Hercules and a hero himself. Sirena defies the goddess Hera by tending his wounds and bringing him food, and soon the two are deep in love. But does Philoctetes love Sirena's song, or her soul? And will the pull of honor prove stronger than the bond of love?
