I really liked Daniel's character in Wake, so I was happy to have more background on his story. Even more excited to continue this series now!

Though offered for a free read for a short time on the publisher's website,
I decided to splurge on this short story for the whopping price of $1.99. ;-)
This is a good read for immediately after reading Wake!
This short story is more of a prequel to Wake, and goes into more detail about what happened to Daniel and Aggie prior to the events in Wake. Aggie was originally part of the Sirens, and is looking for a way out. We meet young Lydia Panning and her grandmother Delia in this story. Lydia i ...more
Be warned though: Forgotten Lyrics is VERY short. I finished it in less than an hour. Don't expect more than an appetizer for Lullaby.
It was great to finally learn the ba ...more

-Daniel. Daniel is by far my favorite character in this entire series, and I was really glad to be able to get a story about him—even if it was a short one. I liked his devotion to his brother, and I felt like they probably had a solid, strong relationship with each other. I was sad to have to read about him losing his brother John, but I was mostly just intrigued that even as a fifteen year old kid, he wasn’t really affected by the siren’s song. That was interesting, and I hope it ...more
I really liked this short story from the Watersong Series. It is kind of a prequel from Wake because it happens five years before it. I like the characters and the plot because it really helps with clarifying with some of the mysteries in the first book.
I also liked Lydia and Delia because they were very helpful and I was also introduced to witches from the series. I also got to know Aggie a.k.a Arista. It was quite confusing at first when you read the first book without knowing Arista but in t...more
We get to know Daniel and Lydia, but the story I think is really about Aggie. Daniel is very mature for his age and is trying to watch out for his brother. Tragedy strikes, and after all is said and done, Daniel can' ...more
I enjoyed this. So this is a very short Novella. It takes place 5 years before Wake starts (except in the epilogue where its present time to where Wake starts). I really liked getting to know more about Daniel and Aggie, the girl of which Gemma takes the place of in Wake. We find out how Daniel went through a trauma when he was fifteen and lost someone close to him. And how Aggie, went out on her own for a while, and th ...more
