First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros: Siren

First Chapter First Paragraph

Today I’m participating in First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea, in which bloggers share a bit about a book they’re reading or planning to read soon.

I started reading The Siren recently. This is the second book in the series. You can read my review of The Soul Summoner from last year to get a better idea of where Siren is beginning.

“This is a test. This is only a test of the Emergency Broadcast System.” I was practicing my best radio announcer’s voice.

“Sloan, stop talking,” my father said through his microphone. “And please, lie still.”


All the missing victims of North Carolina’s deadliest serial killer have been found, all except Rachel Smith. When the FBI produces a photo proving Rachel is alive and well in Texas, one case is closed but another one is opened. Either this is a case of mistaken identity or there are more people than just Sloan Jordan and Warren Parish who seem to walk the earth without a soul.

Along with Detective Nathan McNamara, Sloan and Warren travel south to find Rachel and solve the biggest mystery of all: determining who—or what—they really are.

The Siren is Book 2 of The Soul Summoner Series.

Would you keep reading?

  1. I don’t think I’d be able to help myself either. I’d want to say that too. Haha I like the opening. It is an innocent enough opening for what I imagine isn’t such an innocent book. I have been curious about these books and hope you continue to enjoy them!

  2. That is definitely the most unusual introductory chapter I’ve ever read! I would go for it, except for the plot. Serial killers? Too creepy for me, to be honest. You’re obviously enjoying it, so I hope it stays good to the very end!

    Thanks for visiting and commenting on my Tuesday Intros post!! 🙂
