Call of the Sirens Pronunciation Guide

Call of the Sirens has been out since February 2019 and since the release of The Hunt (Book Two), I have been getting requests for a pronunciation guide for my character names. In my mind, they are so easy to say because I’ve been friends with them for years; but some of them are definitely abstract.

Do you want to know a secret? Most of them have a specific meaning behind them, too.
