Dark and romantic YA fantasy about the siren with a taste for royal blood and the prince who has sworn to destroy her. Princess Lira is siren royalty and the most lethal of them all. With the hearts of seventeen princes in her collection, she is revered across the sea. Until a twist of fate forces her to kill one of her own. To punish her daughter, the Sea Queen transforms Lira into the one thing they loathe most - a human. Robbed of her song, Lira has until the winter solstice to deliver Prince Elian's heart to the Sea Queen or remain a human forever. The ocean is the only place Prince Elian calls home, even though he is heir to the most powerful kingdom in the world. Hunting sirens is more than an unsavoury hobby - it's his calling. When he rescues a drowning woman in the ocean, she's more than what she appears. She promises to help him find the key to destroying all of sirenkind for good. But can he trust her? And just how many deals will Elian have to barter to eliminate mankind's greatest enemy?

This book is full of adventure, flirtation, sass, betrayal, disguise, growth, duty, fate and a hint of pirate swashbuckling fun. I highly recommend this novel as an excellent adaptation of the Little Mermaid that has managed to become its own story in the process * Mythic Reader * To Kill a Kingdom is the The Little Mermaid of your nightmares... you should definitely add this one to your to read lists! Lira is an absolutely riot! * Beautiful Bookland * I really, really, loved this book. There's not enough books out there which go into the underwater-fantasy genre. To Kill a Kingdom fills that gap in the market. It's well written and the characters are simply brilliant * Life Has A Funny Way * I thoroughly enjoyed this book * Much Ado About Books * This was AWESOME. It's so rare to find well-developed second-world fantasy YA standalones - but this book managed to deliver a great story, three-dimensional characters and excellent world-building all within one single novel * Astolat Books * This is actually a harder review to write than I anticipated; I literally just want to write a page of "I love it, I love it, I love it" and squeal with excitement as I reminisce over this incredible book and suffer through my book hangover! I can't recommend To Kill A Kingdom highly enough; it certainly lives up to the expectation and can certainly rival incredible fantasy books such as those by Maas and Bardugo, and I can't wait to see what Christo writes in the future! * Snaily Can Fly * a glorious new book for your YA fantasy shelf * Library Looter * It has everything! Banter, sass, chemistry, pirates, adventure, action, a bitch queen mother, incredible world-building, consistent plot and pacing and awesome character arcs and progression. Ultimately, it is incredibly fun and entertaining. Just read it. * Emma's Chapter * Alexandra Christo's debut is much better than anything Maas has ever written. Definitely a book that I can see turning into a big hit with readers. * Mystic Reads * The world building is deft, and the spectacular ending is a happy one for Lira and Elian, but it will leave readers blissfully wanting more. * Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books * I was instantly drawn into this book, the first sentence pulled me in straight away and I knew I'd fall in love with it: 'I have a heart for every year I've been alive.' I love the characters and their development, the plot and world building in this book. * Niffler Reads * Alexandra Christo's storytelling is magnificently enticing. I was just so captivated by the fast-paced plot and characters that I couldn't put the book down. The writing is beautiful and fluid, there is attention to every little detail and the characters are very well-developed. I just can't believe this is her debut novel! * My Lovely Secret * For a debut novel or for any novel, the story is compelling and the writing style unique, and I will definitely read whatever story Alexandra Christo tells next. * Elisa Christy * stellar world building and nonstop action will keep readers hooked on this twisted reimagining of "The Little Mermaid." * Booklist Online * The story is perfectly mapped out and so compelling I didn't want it to end * Cosy Reading Nest * This book had me hooked from the very first page, Lira is such an interesting character from the very beginning. I loved that she is brutal, full of rage and powerful * The Star * The world is so vibrant and lush, it pulls you in instantly. Beautiful, murderous sirens and mermaids that talk in riddles roam the ocean, whilst a pirate prince, rumoured to have golden blood in his veins, sails through its water with his crew. That combined with the writing, which often takes on the alluring quality of a siren's song, allows for an extremely evocative and captivating storytelling * Violette Books * a lovely dark twisted take on the Little Mermaid * Rachel's Readings * I enjoyed reading it a lot, the story was fast paced and I liked the balanc
