Section 1: You are ordered to feed a person to a monster octopus creature thing, and there is no way to avoid this. The creature has not been fed for 50 years. And thing is, that person is a friend. The title of this book is Syren.The author is Angie Sage. And the genre is fiction.

Section 2: The story first takes place in a harbor, where the trading post is. Throughout the book, other settings are an island, and a castle.
