No matter whether you are human girl or a Siren, there always is this one guy who manages to completely get under your skin.

17-year-old Serena can’t escape her true destiny any longer. She is transformed into a Siren and has to get used to a different name, unusual abilities and constantly attracting every man’s glance. Guided by her new family members, she faces the challenge of leading a life among humans without appearing divergent. When Alex reciprocates her love, she seems to fully have settled into her new life.
However, two secrets have yet to be revealed and Serena hast to make a tough choice.

This is the compelling first novel in the Heart of Power trilogy. S. L. Giger manages to add a refreshing breeze to fantasy by successfully introducing us to the world of Sirens in our modern age.

Interview with the author

Q: How did you get the ideas for this book?

A: I love books like Harry Potter, Twilight and The Hunger Games but so far, I’ve only always concentrated on writing contemporary romances. When I was travelling through South East Asia the weird, twisted roots in the jungle inspired me that there could be a whole different world inside ours and so I tried to add a paranormal element to my romance writing and turn it into an urban fantasy romance. When I started writing it in 2013, I wasn’t sure where it was going to lead but now I have a pretty clear picture of a whole urban fantasy series in three books.

Q: So, are there more books by you, which your readers can enjoy?

A: I wrote two more romance novels. “A sketch of what you mean to me” will be published around February 2017. If you buy “Heart of Power: Awakening of the Siren”, you will find a link inside which will let you download it for free. The sequel of Awakening of the Siren should hopefully come out by the end of 2017. I’m not sure how much time I will find for writing next to my full time job.

Q: You work a full time job? So, when do you find the time for writing?

A: Anytime I can get. On the train, before work, after work, in airports, on a plane. Sometimes I feel a bit anti-social because I much rather would want to be home writing instead of going out on a Friday evening. I have to find a balance but I feel like writing gives me more energy because it’s something I really want to do.

Q: You mentioned planes and airports. Do you like to travel?

A: I love exploring beautiful places and I use every chance I can get to travel. I also try to keep up to date with my travel blog, which you find on my website www.swissmissontour.com

Q: Who will like the Heart of Power Series?

A: People who enjoy reading an urban fantasy mystery or a paranormal teen romance. However, I wouldn’t say it’s a young adult novel only. If you like Vampire books, I’d say the chance is big that you also like Siren books. I hope I can give something new to the readers, since Siren’s aren’t yet as explored as vampires. I address topics like having to leave your family and friends and finding your way in a new environment, how while growing up and even as an adult you are faced with choices every day and it’s important that you make a decision but that you also accept the consequences and of course, in Heart of Power, you will find the million butterflies, which you feel when you find the right guy for you and the insecurities love can sometimes bring as well.
