6/5 stars!
Oh, my goodness!!! Where do I start? This is one of the best debut novels I have had the pleasure of reading!
The world-building was phenomenal and it succeeded in making me forget about reality. The alternating point of views of many characters might seem confusing but it isn't! Every POV was intriguing in it's own right and they kept me wondering who the story was going to lead me to next! The multiple point of views make the story so much

While reading Alluring Song the only word that came to mind through the entire book was that it was just Magical. I loved the plot and all the characters roles in the story. It all went together so well.

I absolutely adored Lorelei. Her character is so strong, vibrant, good hearted and fights for others who need someone to stand up for them. Her character has such a bright soul it just glows and radiates off the pages. You can’t help but feel everything she does and root for her happy ending.

Alluring Song, an addicting fantasy/romance written by a lovely new author, Aimee McNeil.

A couple weeks ago, I was contacted by Aimee McNeil for a request to review her book. It has been a while since I have taken review requests, but I have a hard time turning down a fantasy/romance -- and I am glad I didn't. Her writing is beautiful, the words are entrancing, and the story flows smooth. The change in POVs also helped understand each character more and I am glad she decided to take this route.

For a first-time novelist, the author very skillfully handles intertwining narratives and a great host of characters and successfully ties up the myriad plot threads into a satisfying conclusion. There is some beautiful description in this book too --Aimee is a natural writer and storyteller and it shows in Alluring Song.

The only thing that kept me from completely loving this book was the frequent and often senseless violence towards women. I understand that this fantasy world (which feels a lot

Attention fantasy lovers, I have found the perfect book for you!

Alluring Song is a captivating novel full of romance, humour, action, and steamy scenes not suitable for children. It features loveable characters who, throughout different chapters written from different points of view, we come to know and love (or hate). The plot is full of twist and turns that keep your eyes glued to the pages as you frantically flip through to find out what happens next. I found that when I had to put the book d

I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for sharing my honest opinion

Upon starting this book, I was immediately swept up in the story. It was beautifully written - almost poetically so - and it read like a bit of a fairy tale for older teens and adults.

Though there were multiple points of view, I never once got lost. I felt like all the characters, good and bad and those that toed that gray area in between, had their distinct personalities. I honestly don't think I've read anything like t

Aimee McNeil is a wonderful writer, her descriptions of the settings are gorgeous - you feel like you're really there among the plot and the characters jump to life off of the page! Lorelei is a lovely, layered, complex person who is surprisingly relatable considering all the magic surrounding her life. Although there is violence and brutality within the pages, as the story line unfolds it becomes necessary to understanding the explosive ending. This is the debut novel of a writer who is going f ...more

This book was an amazing story! It was fast paced and kept me interested. However, due to some violent moments, I would NOT recommend it if you are against that sort of thing or would not recommend it for a younger audience. If you aren't either of those, then get it and enjoy the ride. ...more

A really romantic, fairy tale like story. Definitely something for hopeless romantics, and fans of siren mythology. I wanted more!

---SPOILERS--- :)

I found Alluring Song an amazing read! First I want to say that my beginning impression was that Aimee McNeil's writing style was poetic and inviting. As I went through the chapters the new characters that were introduced changed the feel of the story with very graphic and unexpected scenes which startled me. Both good and evil scenes. Her writing style kept hold of me, and she is very talented. The depth of the writing was well...alluring.

The characters were very real for me,

Bravo premiere novel

What I liked most about this story is the great imagination that went into making this a unique fantasy. There's forbidden love, corrupt royalty, betrayal, legends...all the things that go into making a good fantasy and adventure. The only thing I had to ding a star for was too much narration and not enough dialogue for my liking that limited me bonding with the characters more---but that's just a personal preference. Aimee McNeil did a fabulous job and I'm sure we'll be seei
