A TIKTOK sensation! An unforgettable dark romantic YA fantasy about the siren with a taste for royal blood and the prince who has sworn to destroy her. "Stellar world building and nonstop action will keep readers hooked on this twisted reimagining of 'The Little Mermaid'." Booklist Online 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. His calling? Ridding the world of the menace of the sirens. But when he rescues a drowning woman, it becomes clear that there's more to her than there first appeared. She promises to help him find the key to destroying the sirens for good. But can he trust her? "A world of beauty and monstrosity" Publishers Weekly

MEDIA REVIEWS
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 *

“A dark take on 'The Little Mermaid'”

Lately I have pretty much been reading alternative fairy tales. To Kill a Kingdom is like a dark version of ‘The Little Mermaid’ mixed with siren mythology.
