Matar un reino (Paperback)
With seventeen prince hearts in her possession, Lira is one of the most revered sirens in the sea. But a slip-up prompts her mother, the Sea Queen, to transform Lira into what she most loathes—a human. Lira has until the winter solstice to deliver Prince Elian’s heart to the Sea Queen or remain a human forever. Although he is heir to the largest kingdom on Earth, Prince Elian calls the ocean his only home. Hunting sirens is more than a hobby—it’s his life. When he rescues a drowning woman, she promises to help him find the key to exterminating all sirens, but can he trust her?

"Fantasy fans will love this story of pirate princes and killer sirens."—School Library Journal, on the English-language edition
Another one of my very favorite read-aloud books! I cherish this book, it’s truly a masterpiece: it is so beautifully crafted, and stands as a perfect example of how words and pictures can aid one another in superb storytelling! Our story is told by a local town cat, Muffin, who prowls the neighborhood each night, always on the lookout for anything strange that might require his investigative expertise…when, one night, bears show up at the bakery!?! Sounds like a job for Muffin!
