Being Killed by the Siren is a wonderful way to die Introducing a new character to the world of contemporary fantasy The ancients called her by many names: the Nereid, a Morgan, or an Undine. The Greeks called her a Nymph. They are all very beautiful names for a beautiful killer of humans. If you are in her company near water, and should she wish for you to go farther, then you have already gone too far... Her name is Eleanor Orlen, and she is the last of her kind. She is the Siren Once an object of romantic myth and legend, it took until the 20th Century for humans to find a use for her... the perfect killer. Eleanor leaves no fingerprints, and can beguile her way into any place, mind or secret. When seen at her most beautiful, few have lived to describe her. She has the ability to vanish without trace, bear horrific injuries and is difficult to kill unless you know how. She is also lonely, lost, scared and frustrated, and finds herself trapped in a modern and at times cruel world. Those who entrap her, the mysterious Brabant Committee, do so with a simple ultimatum - work for us, or perish. Eleanor must conduct her hated tasks against an ever more dangerous background, with even the Vatican tracking her. Forever young and forever lonely, all she wants is her freedom, but time is now running out... A hunter is closing in. A man whose greatest wish is to make a species become extinct. The Call of the Siren is the first book in the Siren Trilogy. "...This mixture of an espionage thriller and a contemporary fantasy, felt like something John le Carre might have produced if he'd been tasked with writing something similar to Twilight."

About the Author:

Mark Fleming grew up in Southport, in the Northwest of England, before moving to London in the mid 1980s to work in the film industry. He worked for Rank Films, working on the release of films including Platoon, Robocop, A Chorus Line, The Name of the Rose, and many others. In 1988 he changed direction, leaving editing to become a visual effects designer / model maker at Shepperton Film Studios, working on films including Batman, Prince of Thieves and Judge Dredd. He directed and produced briefly before moving away from London in the early 2000s. Mark published his first book, Firework Art (a beautiful picture book exploring the evocative artwork of British fireworks) in 2005. He published his first novel, Challerton, in 2012. His second, The Call of the Siren, is due for publication in 2013. FIRE Fascination, Firework and Festival (released June 2013) sees Mark revisit the fireworks theme, with a look at how an ancient autumn fire festival has evolved from its pagan origins to become our modern Hallowe'en and Bonfire Night celebration. Released first as a free pdf e-book, FIRE is a stunning and visual journey through one of Britain's most evocative and lasting traditions.
