Siren's Song ~ Review

Siren's Song
The Storm Siren Trilogy 3
By Mary Weber

Nym and Eogan have barely survived their latest confrontation with Draewulf - but Princess Rasha is now in the enemy's hands.  Lord Myles has absorbed all but a remnant of the darkness that Nym had taken into herself and it is consuming him.  War has truly come to the Hidden Lands and no one may be able to survive the power of Draewulf.

The fate of their world, their lives lies with a girl who was not suppose to exist, who was never suppose to survive.  But how is Nym suppose to stop this ancient foe who is slowly gathering the collective powers of the Uathuils into himself?  Sacrifices will be made in this almost hopeless endeavor. The only question is who will be left to experience victory or defeat? Change is coming and Nym will help usher it in.

This is the third and final book in the Storm Siren series.  We will be given a glimpse into Nym's past that we haven't yet been privy to.  Siren's Song has threads of both hope and despair running throughout though it is not as dark as Siren's Fury.  Overall I really liked this book especially Kel, the child captain of one of the Bron airships.  I love his comments when he gets disgusted at Nym and Eogan's kissing (slobbering is his preferred reference to Nym).

I think this book and series is appropriate for older teens, though as a teen reader I would have been of a mind with Kel and been put off by Eogan and Nym at times.  Nym's growth through the series from slave to leader is impressive and as are those who helped to her find herself.  

I have to admit I really like the covers for these books which is what drew me to them in the first place.  Fans of fantasy ya fiction will have something new to engage their minds.
            
              



I was provided a copy of this book by BookLook and the Fiction Guild in exchange for my honest review,



About the Book:
“The realization hits: 
We’re not going to win. 
It’s why I couldn’t defeat Draewulf in Bron - 
because this power was never mine anyway. 
I drop my arms and let the energy die off. 
And turn around to face Eogan.”

After a fierce battle with Draewulf, Nym barely escaped with her life. Now, fleeing the scorched landscape of Tulla, her storm-summoning abilities are returning; only . . . the dark power is still inside her.
Broken and bloodied, Nym needs time to recover, but when the full scope of the shapeshifter’s horrific plot is revealed, the strong-willed Elemental must race across the Hidden Lands and warn the other kingdoms before Draewulf ’s final attack.
From the crystalline palaces of Cashlin to the legendary Valley of Origin, Nym scrambles to gather an army. But even if she can, will she be able to uncover the secret to defeating Draewulf that has eluded her people for generations? With a legion of monsters approaching, and the Hidden Lands standing on the brink of destruction, the stage is set for a battle that will decide the fate of the world.
This time, will the Siren’s Song have the power to save it?
