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.
Pronounced “K-eye Di-moan-us”

I hope this little guide helps!
Are there any other words from Call of the Sirens you’d like to see a pronunciation to? Let me know and I’m happy to add them!
