This is a wonderful paranormal story that involves Gods and magic. I would also classify this as a romance book. I think this is the first time I have read anything by this author and I'm not sure if I will continue the series. I enjoyed it, but I think I read this at the wrong time (emotionally-wise). ...more

Let me begin by explaining That I think many authors use sex to lure in women....I want a good story and it was so annoying to have to skip pages and pages of sex scenes all throughout the book it had to be half sex..Makes me wonder at what point can we not imagine a personal experience… Do we really need to hear the blow-by-blow’s? And why would we even want to read that it is not true in real life even with the best man. It makes me feel like that is the only reason I woman is a woman and that ...more

First in the Siren series

She is about to get a crash course lesson in magic, witches, and legends she thought were nothing but stories. Alec is part Siren and part water magic. He and his brothers have been buying herbs from Ellie’s grandfather for years. They live on their own island that is magically enhanced so other supernaturals cann

This was a terrific book. Packed with magic, possession, Gods and Goddesses, suspense, a scary trip through the underworld, and a forbidden love. Alec is the son of a siren and as such, has abilities. He and his three brothers are working for the Gods. Mostly finding lost or stolen artifacts. They are also forbidden love by Zeus. They can have all the trysts they can handle, just no love or commitment. Too bad Alec forgot about that. Ellie has come to the US from Scotland bury her grandfather an ...more

***I voluntarily reviewed this book for Katsindiebookblog, and I gained no monetary incentives nor was I specifically requested to review the book.*** I’ve always been a fan of Helen and this book just makes my obsession even more! You get a great new look in Mythology into today’s world. This story is about the romance of Alec, 1 of 4 of a set of brothers that are Sirens, and Eilidh (Ellie). Ellie just comes upon her own magic and she needs to learn how to control it. Alec does everything he c ...more

This is the first book that I read written by Helen Scott. Bravo to her for this one. When you lose someone you love like your grandfather, there are times when you just want to shut down in life and just get away. But when you find out you have some sort of magical powers that you never knew, life can throw you even more curveballs than before. When you don't know how to control them and other prenatural creatures come face to fact with you, what can you do? This is a well written book, the sto ...more

I'm a mystery novel reader, and this book was recommended to me. I was a bit apprehensive to read it as it normally isn't a genre I would gravitate towards.

What a delightful surprise! Helen Scott is an excellent writer! I could visualize her descriptions and I read the novel as if I were watching it on the big screen. (Make note Hollywood.)

Mythology, mystics, magic, love, bravery and a young lady who surprises herself and becomes a heroine. Really, what more could you ask for? Throw this in you

Electrically Charged

My first book by Helen Scott and I would like to say I was not disappointed. This book started out with kind of just average expectation and now I really hated to put it down to work.

Getting to know the brother, Circe, Hecate and Ellie really helped pick up the story to the point you get so engrossed with what is happening you don't want to be interrupted.

Can't wait for the other brothers stories.

It sounded amazing, the cover is great, the title got me and for the first few pages I was ready for an epic story... I didn't realise I'd a bigger pet peeve than typos until reading this book, putting accents into writing isn't what I'd call clever writing. I've Scottish mates, they speak like that yes but they'd never type like that. I spent more time rereading trying to figure out what she was saying and it completely took away from the actual story. I didn't last very long before it got dele ...more

What an entertaining read. I loved all the different worlds that are out there just beyond what we mere mortals see. A great blend of paranormal suspense and romance that grabs you and says hang on for the ride. I also am loving the fact that ALL the brothers will have their own story! Awesome!

I enjoy paranormal romances that include a variety of supernatural characters and this book includes many different types. There is a lot of action and adventure as they battle a deadly enemy and try to earn the right to pursue their love. It is a fast paced read with great character development and a storyline that keeps your interest with each turn.

Eilidh finds a whole new world while mourning her grandfather's death and attempting to close his magic shop. This is a great paranormal romance that brings in lots of magical powers. A well written book with lots of drama, magic, suspense and romance. Interesting characters and a captivating story line that will pull you in and keep you page turning. A great read. I received an arc copy and voluntarily chose to write a review. ...more

Definitely not a mermaid

Interesting mix with Greek gods and goddesses and Celtic mythology as Alec the sirens son's and Ellie who is defended from the Fae find love .
Lots of action as Alec and his brothers fight the witch Circe who is intend on revenge. And a bit part for Morrigan the queen of the Fae .
Enjoyable read that draws you in , you can't help hoping for a HEA for them even if it doesn't always seem possible .

I was hooked right from the start! This book is SO GOOD!! The characters are fantastic and the pace is thrilling! I enjoyed the humour and the interplay, not to mention the steamy scenes *fans myself* 😁

Helen Scott is now one of my favourites for sure!

If you are going to go for a Scottish brough be consistent with it, don't switch between ye and you and others. It drove me crazy that every time Ellie spoke I didn't know what I was getting and couldn't move past it. I could have worked with either but the inconsistency of it made me stop reading.

Fun read

Loved the uniqueness of using God's ,fairies and other mythical creatures in the story line. Actually had a story and not bombarded with gratuitous sex. Laughter,action,love and adventure can't miss. Looking forward to the next book.

Listen to the song.

There are plots and counter plots, problems and solutions. Just when you think you have it all figured out something changes. I couldn't put it down, so I had to finish it in one sitting. I am sure they'll get over dinner being late.

This was an interesting book but I felt like there were parts where something came up that wasn't there before. However, I could be wrong.
Overall it was an interesting idea and I'm getting the next couple for my Kindle Christmas haul.

Now I know what a Siren is.

It is interesting to watch different lores converge together in a story. When you think you are familiar with a mythical creature, your perspective gets blown away even bigger and brighter.
