'Everything about Burton's debut is razor-sharp' NATASHA NGAN

The Cruel Prince meets To Kill a Kingdom in this seductive YA fantasy debut, in which a siren must choose between protecting her family and following her heart in a prejudiced kingdom where her existence is illegal.


Sorkova survives on secrets. As the last siren in her kingdom, she can

sing any man to an early grave - but her very existence is illegal, and if

her true identity were ever discovered, it would be her life on the line.

By day, Saoirse disguises herself as a

fae, pretending to be the perfect soldier-in-training. By night, she satisfies

her darker urges working as an assassin for dangerous mercenaries. And all

the while, she keeps the biggest secret of all: that she is not always in

control of her Siren powers, or her desire to kill.

Then a blackmailer threatens her sister,

and Saoirse's investigation takes her to the royal palace, and her most

dangerous job yet: personal bodyguard to the Crown Prince.

Saoirse expects to despise Prince Hayes. But

he is kind, thoughtful, and charming, and she finds herself increasingly

drawn to him . . . until he tasks her with investigating a killer plaguing the

kingdom. The problem: the killer is Saoirse.

Trapped by her deadly double life, Saoirse

can't leave the palace until she saves her sister . . . but who will save her

from herself?

Reviews for Sing Me to Sleep (#1 Sing Me to Sleep)

Everything about Burton's debut is razor-sharp: the writing, the tension, the twists, the action, the romance, and, of course, its heroine Saoirse herself. The magical yet treacherous Kingdom of Keirdre is an alluring backdrop for this story of deceit and deception, where no one and nothing is to be trusted - not even your own heart * Natasha Ngan, New York Times bestselling author of Girls of Paper and Fire * A thoroughly enchanting debut. Once you pick this book up, there's no putting it down again. Saoirse's story will capture your heart and consume your imagination, every bit as captivating as the siren song inside its pages. Run, don't walk towards this one; Sing Me to Sleep is the perfect YA fantasy * Kate Dylan, author of Mindwalker * A dark and sweeping fantasy, that--like a siren song--will pull you in from the very first page * Alechia Dow, author of The Sound of Stars * Burton pens a darkly enchanting fantasy that brims with siren magic, political intrigue, and the most swoon-worthy romance that will, undoubtedly, leave you begging for the next book in the series. Perfect for readers who crave a compelling, high stakes plot from start to finish, sharp-witted characters you can't help but root for, and at its heart, a beautifully flawed, morally gray heroine willing to go to great lengths to save the people she loves. Sing Me To Sleep is as thrilling as it is seductive * Deborah Falaye, author of Blood Scion * Snappy dialogue, unpredictable plot twists, skillful worldbuilding, strong characterization, and steamy, sensual tension between Saoirse and the prince create an immersive tale with an empowering social justice tone centering a predominantly Black and brown cast * Kirkus Starred Review * Richly imagined and utterly immersive, Sing Me to Sleep will call to you like the sea. Saoirse is a deeply compelling character: vicious, frightened, and tender as she navigates mysteries, lies, and betrayal in the Kingdom of Keirdre. With an expansive cast of characters, a morally grey heroine, and a swoon-worthy prince, at its heart, this is a story about loyalty and will speak to anyone willing to go to great lengths for the people they love. Gabi Burton's debut is as captivating as the magic within its pages, and will leave you breathless until the final line * Adrienne Tooley, author of The Third Daughter * Sing Me to Sleep is an enthralling read with complex and morally gray characters * Booklist *
