Last year I tried to read Siren’s Fury but ended up putting it down halfway through for a few reasons.
~Back then I didn’t have a co-blogger, so I needed new content and this book was taking too long for me to read.
~Literally nothing had happened in the plot except that my girl Nym had stowed away on an airship.
~I was utterly, utterly BORED. I am not one to say lightly that a book suffers from ‘middle book syndrome’ but by the gods NOW I UNDERSTAND.
I put it aside with the plan that I’d pick it ba ...more
I’ve been in a fantasy reading slump.
I know, I know. Stop shouting. It’s horrible. The girl who loves to be whisked off to other realms, the one who dreams of magical wardrobes and happily ever afters, has not been in the mood for fantasy.
Excuse me while I hit myself repeatedly over the head.
I was terrified. This has never happened to me before. I mean, I’ve never NOT been in th ...more
That said, I thought it was a fascinating book. About three quarters of the way in, I wasn’t sure what I was going to rate it because so much ...more
Nym has saved Faelen with her elemental powers, but has discovered that the Draewulf is not dead as everyone believed, but has taken over the body of Eogen. With Draewulf having destroyed her powers, Nym feels powerless and decides to sneak in with the delegates to Bron, with her new friend Rasha. While in Bron, Nym tries to discover Draewulf’s plans and Lord Myles offers her a chance to get new powers. But is this new power ...more
This second installment held me captive like the first hadn't quite managed to do. I was completely invested in both Nym, Eogan, and Rasha's future not to mention the villain of the story, Draewulf.
Action packed, ...more

Runner Up: Heroine of the Year 2016 (awarded to Nym)
(more information about these awards on my blog)
Actual rating: 3.5
Okay, so this story was pretty much like this
1 - Lots of things happening, lots of information, watch out, alert, help!
2 - Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Lalalalala.
3 - Lots of things happening, lots of information, watch out, alert, help!
So yeah; middle part was really slow but the beginning and the end were exciting to read. A bit of a downer compared to the fir ...more
This is a hard one to review or give thoughts on without entirely spoiling it for those who haven't read the first one, so I'm going to go ahead and warn you, if you haven't read Storm Siren, don't read this review.
Nym undergoes yet another dramatic sweep in her character arc. There were moments I just didn't like her, but I was both fascinated and hopeful enough to wait for redemption. And it was very interesting to see how she reacted to a severe setback (okay, more like a hun ...more
When I finally got my hands on Siren's Fury a few weeks ago, the very first thin ...more
Quick & Dirty: Epic high fantasy set in a captivating world with interesting characters, action packed adventure, and suspenseful plot! I have really enjoyed this series so far and can’t wait to read the final book!
Opening Sentence: Five minutes earlier…
To start things off, I have to warn you that this review will contain spoilers for book one. It is pretty much impossible to review this book without giving away some spoilers as to what happened ...more
Mary Weber's Storm Siren last year was one of my favorite debuts. It was one of those books that was a hidden gem for me and I was completely in love with it. However, it ended in one of the most brutal cliffhangers I have ever come across. With Siren's Fury, Mary Weber continues to amaze me with just how talented she is. Siren's Fury is not a book that suffers from any kind of middle-book syndrome and it's a book that has slotted Mary as one of my favorite authors.
I was unsure of how the plot w ...more
Anyway, onto my thoughts. Firstly, I was so excited to be back into Nym's adventure! (Let's just stop a second and realize what a fantastic name "Nym" is ... truly, I love it! *smiles*) Yes. Excit ...more
I read Siren's Fury a few weeks ago and absolutely loved it. I honestly didn't think that it could get any better, but Siren's Fury showed me differently! I loved this book even more than book one. Let me tell you why!
I was actually kind of worried about reading this one after that ending from book one. I got so close to some characters and then boom, they were gone just like that! I ...more
Nym has risked her life to save a country that held her as a slave and outcast. But in the process, she has loss the few things she held most dear. All because of the shape-shifter Draewulf. Then he takes away her abilities and she realizes that she must stop him, at all costs. She follows him on to a airship headed to Bron searching for a ...more
(Minus .25 stars cause there wasn't enough Eogan :p)
Holy Hell and Damnations!
These books are really out there aren't they?
Not much surprises me anymore, whatever happens, I've just about always already ruled it as a possibility.
Just as its predecessor, surprised me.
Didn't give me as big a shock as Storm Siren delivered but definitely knocked me over there.
Just before starting this. I was gonna go on my reading hiatus.
I know. I know.
It doesn't make sense especially keeping m ...more
I'll be honest, after the SOUL CRUSHING END TO STORM SIREN, I was more than a little bit scared to read this one. And rightly so. Siren's Fury picks up where Storm Siren ends--actually, a few minutes prior, and we get to experience the RIP YOUR HEART OUT AND SERVE IT TO YOU ON A SILVER PLATTER FEELING ALL OVER AGAIN THANK SO MUCH FOR THAT, MARY WEBER.
It's cool though.
As with book one, this story is fast-paced, action packed and stuffed full of good things. Magical, healing and romanti ...more

I NEED THIS BOOK RIGHT NOW. RIGHT THIS INSTANT. I REFUSE TO BELIEVE IT ENDED THAT WAY. I. REFUSE.
