The Silent Siren
Science Fiction Fairytale Retelling
Inspired by the classic tale of The Little Mermaid and given a gritty sci-fi twist.
Born on an ocean-dominated planet, Siréne lived shackled and hidden far away from the dangers of the galaxy that despised her kind, but her father’s unyielding commands and the laws binding her to one planet alone slowly turned her reckless in search of freedom. Buying a human disguise would provide a key to slipping away into the stars where they would unknowingly embrace the enemy. The price? Her voice. She’d gladly pay it.
Embarking on a quest of rebellion after rescuing the Prince of Thieves, Seréne quickly finds herself facing a looming galactic battle against a powerful force waiting to strike. None of that matters, however, if the ruthless crew of mercenaries she travels with discover her true identity first. They’d kill her on sight.
After finally escaping her stifling home and seeing what the galaxy had to offer, she soon must choose between keeping her newfound freedom or sacrificing everything to save the very people she once tried so hard to escape.
