She refuses to get close to anyone. Her life is not only a secret, but a lie. She is a very dangerous young lady. Then Jace enters her life. As luck would have it, they sit next to each other in Mythology class. Only one person knows her secret and that is her teacher. When her secret finally surfaces, it is up to Jace and her teacher to save her and the town. Worst part- the cliff hanger ending.
One hint- explore the myth of Sirens. How can you overpower an evil nature? Jun 18, Jessica-Jayne Timberlake rated it liked it. However, he quickly makes friends with the mysterious popular girl at his new high school, Iris. His new friend, Iris, is a siren. His conversations with his friends are surprisingly natural, and over the course of the book, I related a lot to his thought processes and the way he talked.
The siren song of memories
Although by no means a bad guy, he definitely has his flaws, which prevent him from seeming one dimensional. However, I felt that some of the side characters did come across slightly one-note. This was especially true in the first portion of the book, where the story heavily revolved around normal teenage interactions at the Santa Cruz high school. While these parts of the book were definitely still enjoyable, the lack of complexity found in these characters was a bit distracting.
She quickly would switch from a powerful, independent character to a sort of damsel in distress. This brings me to my main gripe with a book: it starts really slowly. And when the chapter perspectives start to get more balanced out between Iris and Jace half-way through, the book immediately takes off for me and becomes really exciting and addictive. I actually enjoyed the plot a ton once it picked up! Everything gained a sense of momentum that was never slowed until the very last page not hyperbole, this book does not let up once it gets rolling.
And once everything does pick up, almost every complaint I had was near-instantly washed away. Despite that, this book is surprisingly clean. There was basically no swearing one or two minor words in the last few chapters. In addition, any story about mythology is pretty much guaranteed to have some mythological allusions to gods that watch over the story-world. And considering this is K. While I would love to give The Harvest an 8 out of 10, the slow beginning pulls it down to a 7.
Jun 09, Kayla rated it really liked it Shelves: tbr. This book was amazing and right up my ally! It kept me engaged throughout the entire book! I finished it really quickly and enjoyed all of it. The entire book was very enthralling and even had some plot twists in it that I really enjoyed! Every chapter h This book was amazing and right up my ally! Every chapter held my attention and I knew this was my type of book! I liked how outgoing and sweet Jace was and from the beginning, Jace and Iris had a connection.
I definitely would read the other books in this series especially with the ending that this book had! Jun 09, Tanasia Bryant rated it it was amazing Shelves: I'm not going to lie, I thought this was going to be a redundant book. Don't get me wrong, I love reading about sirens and anything dealing with mythology, but now a days I feel like everybody is starting to use old ideas instead of coming up with new ones.

I thought this book was going to be the same. I was right and wrong. This book has the basic concept of many books. Boy and girl fall in love even though they aren't supposed to. Girl has to kill boy. Girl doesn't want to. Now she has a choic I'm not going to lie, I thought this was going to be a redundant book. Now she has a choice. We all know that in these books, this choice could go either way. Well let me tell you, this book exceeded my expectations and threw me for a loop. You literally have a mythical creature that is going through basic human teenage problems jealousy, first love, etc.
Not only that, but tie in the Greek mythology tales and how it is explained, and you have a fantastic book. I also didn't expect it to end the way it did. In my mind, it was going to be a difficult choice but I just knew what they were going to do. That cliffhanger had me on the edge of my bed screaming noooooo!!! Needless to say, I will definitely be continuing this series. I just have to find out what happens. Apr 13, Zoe rated it it was ok. The Harvest is a classic example of a Siren inspired story where the boy falls for the Siren that is trying to kill him.
While I semi-enjoyed my time reading the first half of this book, thinking it was still fun and light-hearted enough for me, it soon became repetitive and I also realized not much was happening. This book seems to focus so much on the characters' high school life, that I forgot it was even a Siren related story.
Action poorly unfolds and most "plot points" were predictable and The Harvest is a classic example of a Siren inspired story where the boy falls for the Siren that is trying to kill him. Action poorly unfolds and most "plot points" were predictable and fell flat for me. The characters are one dimensional and stereotypical examples of the "dark, mysterious girl" and the "fun, surfer dude" and that really made me take steps back from their relationship because I couldn't find anything unique or interesting about them that made me care. It was not a terrible book, but I was hoping for a fresh twist on the Siren story, not something I have read and watched on the TV quite a few times already.
May 28, Kimberly Richards rated it it was amazing. Dark, alluring, and mysterious, Iris never expects to develop feelings for high school surfer Jace Jacobsen, but when she does, she finds that her secrets are harder to keep, and her devotion to her mystical family might not be as strong as it once was. Told between the alternating narratives of Iris and Jace, the story unfolds one small detail at a time, with deliberate, well-timed precision.
This review is also posted on writersrite. May 19, Jen Grimshaw rated it it was amazing. Entertaining and very well written. I was hooked from the first page and I really enjoyed getting to know each of the characters! Sirens are now my new favorite mythical creatures!! Apr 13, InkTrails rated it it was amazing. I've always been a huge sucker for anything having to do with sirens, so I knew that this novel was either going to be a huge hit or a huge miss for me. And it was a HIT!!!
This novel was absolutely fantastic and I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. I don't know if I've recovered from the ending because it was so bittersweet! I cannot wait to continue this series later this month! May 08, JoAnn rated it it was amazing. Great Story! A great paranormal romance filled with horror, romance, and adventure! I thoroughly enjoyed this book and found it hard to put down as the story hooked me from the start.
Loved the inclusion of mythology and I look forward to reading the next book in the series. I voluntarily reviewed this after receiving a free copy. Mar 21, Anna Barton rated it it was amazing.
