‘SIREN’S SONG,’ BY MARY WEBER

March 8, 2016 5 Comments

One of the most anticipated YA reads of 2016, Siren’s Song, has finally hit store shelves and with it, closes out a grand adventure. As with any series ender there are bound to be some bittersweet feelings for anyone who has been a fanigirl of the series. Mary Weber’s fantasy series caused more than a little stir in the bookish world and because of this, it was next to impossible not to be caught up in the exhilarating world.

The story picks up closely following in the shadow of book two, Siren’s Fury when Eogan was – for all logical appearances, lost to Nym. Or at the very least under the control of evil. That spell has been broken and with it, Nym has her love returned to her… or does she? Something about Eogan isn’t the same making it difficult for her to make plans. But plans she does make. She plans to locate and rescue her friend, Princess Rasha and eventually defeat her nemesis Draewulf. Even if this may require her to sacrifice her own self to save the people of Falen and beyond…

Describing the writings of Mary Weber is a difficult task. She has a very commanding voice (which works to an advantage with Nym) and it’s this that shines through each page diving us deeper into the intricate world within these pages. The sense of “place” and with that, personality is astonishing really. In fact, the end battle scene is stuff only the best cinema is made of. For me, it was a surprisingly visual (surprising since ordinarily I prefer such scenes best actually in a visual story) and “real,” which made it all the more visceral and for the expectation of the characters, frightening. 

He is the chance I took. And I’d take it again in a heartbeat. – Mary Weber, Siren’s Song

Add up all of the “little things” about this novel and the conclusion reached can only be one thing; this series is unique. Siren’s Song is sure to do three things (at minimum): keep you on the edge of your seat, make you swoon (this one is non-negotiable, subtle though it is) and leave you breathless. The sense of place is fantabulous as is the first-person voice of its heroine, Nym. In her, readers will discover a fierce, but sometimes insecure heroine who same as the rest of us, struggles to feel accepted or loved as she is. There’s a softer more lighthearted side to Nym as well; her voice is distinct and when it needs to be, charming and funny.

There is a lot that could be said about Siren’s Song, but digging into it much deeper than that is sure to give away what is an adrenaline-charged end to a much beloved series. It’s everything readers could have hoped for and then some.

      Thanks, Bekah; it's always nerve-wrecking to write book reviews, but especially so when the book is so good. :)
