The year is 1569. Ursula Blanchard, illegitimate half sister to Queen Elizabeth I and sometime spy on the Queen's behalf, is happily married to wealthy Hugh Stannard and living quietly in the country. Ursula's thoughts are on domestic matters as she watches her daughter, Meg, grow up. Meg will soon be fourteen, so perhaps it is time to think of a betrothal. When an invitation to visit arrives from the powerful Duke of Norfolk, Ursula and Hugh welcome the chance for Meg to meet an apparently worthy young man of the Duke's household, Edmund Dean. Is he a possible husband for Meg? It's love at first sight, at least on Meg's part. Young Dean seems to admire Meg as well, and he's even more impressed with her promised dowry.

Two men are dead under mysterious circumstances, and there may be a new plot to put Mary, Queen of Scots, on the English throne.

With richly drawn characters and riveting historical accuracy, The Siren Queen sweeps us into a suspenseful and passionate re-creation of one of the most tumultuous and colorful eras of English history.
The Siren Song by Anne Ursu Book Summary:
Inside an ordinary middle school in an ordinary city, a small redheaded eighth grader is doing something very ordinary, indeed. Ever since Charlotte Mielswetzski and her cousin, Zee, saved the world, life has been rather ordinary. Ordinary, that is, if you call being ultramegagrounded (in Charlotte's case) or treated as if you might fall to pieces (in Zee's case) ordinary. Either way, heroes deserve better. Of course, no one knows Charlotte and Zee are heroes. It's not like they can simply announce that Greek myths are real or proclaim they have returned from the Underworld, where they rescued all of mankind from Philonecron, a deranged demigod with delusions of grandeur. Instead, they are forced to keep this terrible knowledge to themselves, and are stuck in a state of extraordinary ordinariness. But things aren't quite as ordinary as they seem. For Philonecron is the grandson of Poseidon, and you don't mess with the progeny of the second most powerful god in the universe. And Philonecron himself isn't so happy about having all of his delicious plans thwarted by mortal children. He wants revenge, and with his grandfather to help him, he is going to get what he wants. For Charlotte and Zee, their not-so-ordinary lives are about to be disrupted once again. This time it's not the world they must save -- it's themselves. In the thrilling second installment of the Cronus Chronicles trilogy, author Anne Ursu brings her trademark wit to a spectacular adventure on the high seas.

The Siren Call of Hungry Ghosts is his gripping journey into a realm of darkness and deception.
The Siren and the Seashell by Octavio Paz Book Summary:
Octavio Paz has long been known for his brilliant essays as well as for his poetry. Through the essays, he has sought to confront the tensions inherent in the conflict between art and society and to achieve a unity of their polarities. The Siren and the Seashell is a collection of Paz’s essays, focusing on individual poets and on poetry in general. The first five poets he treats are Latin American: Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, Rubén Darío, José Juan Tablada, Ramón López Velarde, and Alfonso Reyes. Then there are essays on Robert Frost, e. e. cummings, Saint-John Perse, Antonio Machado, and Jorge Guillén. Finally, there are Paz’s reflections on the poetry of solitude and communion and the literature of Latin America. Each essay is more than Paz’s impressions of one person or issue; each is the occasion for a wider discussion of cultural, historical, psychological, and philosophical themes. The essays were selected from Paz’s writing between 1942 and 1965 and provide an overview of the development of his thinking and an exploration of the ideas central in his works.

Throughout our lives, we all come into contact with some amazing people. Some of them come, some of them go, and some of them even stay for a while. At its heart, The Siren’s Call is the story of the love between friends—what we do to sustain our friendships, and, sadly, what we do to destroy them. Hopefully in that process somewhere lies a bit of redemption. Steven Perry and Kenneth Pierson are best friends and trusted partners in the successful Detroit law firm they co-founded. They are handsome, young, bright, and at the top of their game with the world at their feet—that is until Steve’s fiancée is killed by a drunk driver. Consumed by grief, Steve can’t sleep. So in the middle of the night Steve impulsively drives to Kip’s northern Lake Michigan retreat in an attempt to escape and begins to hear voices in his head. Concerned for his friend’s sanity, Kip convinces Steve to join him in Hawaii for a much needed extended vacation—spring break style. Fun in the sun, hilarious hijinks, surfing lessons, remembered dreams and unexpected meetings with friends from home all ensue. But while Steve struggles to deal with his own grief and potentially gestating madness, he begins to suspect that Kip is wrestling with his own demons that Kip refuses to reveal—stressing their relationship to the breaking point. But as Kip’s best friend, Steve cannot imagine neither the depth of Kip’s deception nor the terrible secret he is hiding. Filled with raw emotional power and vivid images of the surrounding landscapes, The Siren’s Call is an unforgettable story of two friends trying to cope with profound grief the best way they know how and make sense out of a senseless personal tragedy. The sirens are calling. Read this book.

The Siren's Seduction of the King - A Sensual Fairy Tale by Danica Slate Book Summary:
There is a mysterious, beautiful siren said to live high in the mountains, a fae enchantress who rides a wild stallion into battle and can bewitch men with a word. When the King stumbles into her clutches one fateful day, he is hopelessly smitten before being rescued by his loyal retainers. He demands she be brought to him, by any means. Robin, a skilled and cocksure adventurer, accepts the challenge. But when he finds the Siren at last, and she turns her entrancing gaze upon him, he begins to wonder if he’s in over his head... or if he even cares. --- The siren hopped up onto a boulder and stared expectantly at the King, her lips curled in a smile. “You followed me.” Her voice was throaty and musical. The hair rose on the back of his neck to hear it. He felt an unexpected desire start to burn the surface of his skin. “I wanted,” he felt suddenly breathless, “to thank you.” Black eyebrows shot up on her fair forehead. “Did you?” She began to approach him. Her dark eyes never left his as her muscled legs found their way down boulders and across the soft ground toward him. His loins stirred in anticipation as she approached, feeling very much like a hare before the wolf. “I... You left so quickly,” he stammered. “I owe you a debt.” She was almost on him now. He could smell the scent of fresh grass and cloves that clung tantalizingly to her. Her eyes smoldered. “What can you offer me?” He felt a spark of indignation, knowing she was toying with him, but it was quenched as her slender-fingered hand lighted on his shoulder. She circled behind him. His skin burned as he felt her eyes move over him. He forced a swallow down his dry throat. “I am your king,” some strength returned to his voice. “I do not offer my thanks lightly.” “My king?” her voice rose in genuine interest. His breath hissed through his teeth as her fingers gripped tighter into his shoulders. “You are king of this land, then.” Her lithe arms moved slowly around his neck. “Are you a just and strong king?” her breath felt hot on his ear. He inhaled audibly, shuddering with his sudden lust. Embarrassment burned into his cheeks, and she laughed low and light. “So you are. A noble man always quivers.”

Mallarme by Jacques RanciÃ ̈re Book Summary:
In this concise and illuminating study, Jacques RanciÃ ̈re, one of the world's most popular and influential living philosophers, examines the life and work of the celebrated nineteenth-century French poet and critic, StÃ©phane MallarmÃ©. Ranciere presents MallarmÃ© as neither an aesthete in need of rare essences and unheard-of words, nor the silent and nocturnal thinker of some poem too pure to be written. MallarmÃ© is the contemporary of a republic that is seeking out forms of civic worship to replace the pomp of religions and kings. If his writing is difficult, it is because it complies with a demanding and delicate poetics that is itself responding to an exceptional awareness of the complexity of an historical moment as well as the role that poetry ought to play in it.
