John Pritkin has been trying to recover from a demon curse that separated his body and soul and almost killed him. The reunification has left him wi

It was so good. A great continuation bit without Cassie. Learned more about John and Dorina. I have enjoyed everything by this author.
Per author (
“Siren’s Song”, the twin novella to “Dragon’s Claw”, is not going to be out on Dec. 1 as I’d hoped. I have about half of it done, but had to put it aside to finish up the ninth Cassie book, Brave the Tempest. BTT is going well and will be turned in this month, but that means I won’t be starting SS again until probably around the time it was due out. I’m sorry about this, but Brave the Tempest is a great book and it deserved the time to be all

If you thought there wasn't enough Pritkin in"Brave the Tempest," you will love this book.
This gives us glimpse's into Pritkin's past, as his soul and body reintegrate, following Cassie's return from the past.
It also shows us from his PoV, just what he kept him too busy to show up during the first part of BtT.
In "Dragon Claw" we saw Dory's part of the happenings, but even though "Siren's Song" takes place at the same place and time, there is very little overlap.

First of all, if you have not read Cassie 1-8 you're doing yourself a great disservice and many of the great references in this book will go right over your head. It's a Karen Chance book, which means amusement. So, if you don't get the jokes, what's the point? Next, follow John Pritkin on an acid-trip like journey down memory lane. This book has all the laughs, and all the feels and more pieces of the puzzle that is the universe of Cassie, Dory, the mages, witches and vampires. Karen Chance wri ...more

Wonderful story! Action packed fun! Maybe too much action, which made it a bit confusing at times. Good ending!
After devouring the exciting Dragon's Claw following Dory Basarab's latest adventure, I was thrilled to discover that the author planned to do a companion story showing some of the same events from Cassie Palmer series character, War Mage, John Pritkin. But, it wasn't simply a companion story telling a different perspective. It turned out to be a story told in split time and only tapped briefly into Dory's story. I was left amazed by more electrifying world building and setting, twisted around a ...more

A wild ride and great insight into John Pritkin's character

Pritkin is hands down my favorite character aside from Cassie. I loved this book because it gave us a lot of background on him in the way of flashback memories. Karen Chance has a way of making the flashbacks work as part of the story, so the transition between past and present day wasn't jarring like it can be with other authors. Every flashback had relevance to the story that was being told as well. I don't know how she manages to weav

Wild Ride through a Wonderful Magic World!

Karen Chance makes fantasy so real that you feel you could move into her beautiful, scary world if only you had the courage of her brave, funny, brilliant magical characters.

Take this wild, magical ride with the beloved, brilliant, cranky war mage, John Pritkin, and escape your old boring, mundane reality for a few amusing, exciting hours.

A great story to see in Johns head and even see his adventures without Cassie. Really enjoyed it. But I can’t wait for more of him and Cassie. I was sad she wasn’t really in this book. I just love them so much. Can’t wait for the next game next book. Loved this one.
