Release Day Review ~ Song of the Siren by Deja Black

Release Day Review ~ Song of the Siren by Deja Black


A broken soldier, a siren, and a pastor. Sounds like an intro to a bad joke, but it’s the Christmas story of how a siren’s song can heal.    

Graham is a broken soldier in body and soul. With no place to go, he moves to the coast to live with the only relative who loves him. Lost and without hope, Graham is not sure how he can get his life back. That is until he hears the song of the most gorgeous man he has ever seen.

Kamau is a siren who lives part of his life with his siren mother the other part with his human father. Dutiful son to mother and father but never true to himself. That is until Graham walks into the church and Kamau realizes he has found his mate.

Jonah Anderson is the pastor who relies on his son’s gift to grow his church. All is going well for him and the church. That is until he sees the way Kamau looks at Graham.

At a time when Christmas presents are given for the holiday, will Graham and Kamau receive the gift they’ve dreamed of for a lifetime? Each other.  

4 Stars!

Graham has returned from the military missing part of his leg and is immediately thrown out of his mother’s home after he comes out. Luckily, his cousin Louis and his boyfriend David invite Graham to stay with them until he can get back on his feet. Graham is surprised when a trip to their church leads him to the magical voice of the beautiful Kamau. He and Kamau are instantly drawn to one another and as long as Kamau’s father doesn’t succeed in destroying their relationship the two men seemed destined to find happiness in each other’s arms.

Quite a unique Christmas story, of course, Deja Black is great with unique. There aren’t a lot of stories out there about Sirens, at least not that I have personally come across. I enjoyed the fact that it was different and I am a huge fan of Deja’s stories.

Quick, easy and sexy; I definitely recommend this book to those who enjoy paranormal Christmas novellas. Graham and Kamau are both likable characters and have great chemistry. While this is a bit of Insta love it definitely flows with the story and in the end, works well.
