Today I am reviewing Siren’s Song, book three in the Storm Siren Trilogy series, by Mary Weber.
Here is a brief synopsis:
Nym and Draewulf prepare to face off in a battle destined to destroy more lives than it saves.
With the loss of Tulla still fresh in mind, Rasha’s fate unknown, and Lord Myles taken over by the dark ability, Nym and the few Bron soldiers rush to warn Cashlin’s queen. Only to discover it may already be too late for the monarch and her eerie kingdom.
As the Luminescents are sifting through Nym’s past memories and the queen is reading into her future, Nym is given a choice of how to defeat Draewulf, but the cost may be more than she can bear.
And even then there are no guarantees.
With that reality burrowing into her bones—along with the guilt of the lives she will sacrifice—Nym returns to her homeland of Faelen to raise an army of peasants through promises of freedom.
But when the few friends she has left, along with the world and citizens she loves, are staring down the face of a monster and his undead army, will Nym summon every element her blood is capable of controlling . . . or surrender to a different strength—one of sacrifice?
Because in the end, death may be more merciful for them all.
This is not my first choice of genre. Actually, my daughter is the one who reads YA fantasy — and books by Mary Weber — so I thought I’d check out one of her books for myself…
If you read the synopsis above, you may or may not agree with me, that it’s somewhat difficult to get into a story when you have no idea how to pronounce the names. Maybe that’s just me.
It is also difficult to get into a book — especially a book like this — when I’ve come into the end of the story. If I were more interested in the series, I would definitely go back to the beginning and read the books in order.
As it is though, I believe I will leave it to my daughter. I am certain she will be thrilled to receive this book. I’m sort of surprised that she has not already snatched it up and run off to read it – keeping me from being able to read and review it myself.
So, if you enjoy young adult fantasy, read the first two books in this series – and then read this one as well. I am sure you will enjoy it. Mary Weber is an imaginative and talented author.
God Bless You!
