Centuries have passed since the realm of Faldion’s last great war. All of the provinces live under a tenuous peace agreement achieved through the magical domination of the immortal spirit sirens, seven mysterious and formidable women with powers that bring them to the precipice of godhood. They’re soul bound to obey the commands of a few select mortals, living as weapons as much as people. Only the One Master, Faldion’s elusive and enigmatic patriarch, can match their strength.
Wars are started and ended by the sirens. Men are seduced and betrayed at their whim. The realm hangs in a delicate balance with all of them leaning on the scale.
Kai is just a simple slave from a forgotten kingdom, trying to scrape out an existence while protecting his sole friend, Selene. Through no intention of his own, he makes a discovery that will forever change the course of the realm’s history.

In general this is a good read, although it is not as good as some of Anya's other books. The character concepts are good, but for me it feels like there needs to be a bit more depth to them before I can really start to root for them. I know that as the story unfolds I will probably become more involved and may well find the story more enjoyable as it develops but it is not gripping me as much as other books she has written. I would heartily recommend reading her work though as she has written some really good stories.
Thought the story was well written and an easy read. The star characters were good. Had to read to end to see what happens next. Gutted when it ended.
