Review: Sirensong by Jenna Black

Sirensong (Faeriewalker, Book 3) by Jenna Black


Genre: Paranormal Young Adult
ISBN: 0312575955
Edition Reviewed: Paperback
Amazon: Sirensong
Goodreads: Sirensong

When Dana is invited to Faerie to be officially presented at the Seelie Court, it’s no easy decision. After all, everyone knows Titania, the Seelie Queen, wants her dead. But Titania claims not to be the one behind the death threats; and her son, Prince Henry, makes the decision a whole lot easier when he suggests Dana might be arrested for (supposedly) conspiring with her aunt Grace to usurp the Seelie throne. So she and her father better do as they're told . . .

The journey through Faerie is long—and treacherous. Dana thought it would be a good idea to have friends along, but her sort-of-boyfriend, Ethan, and her bodyguard’s son, Keane, just can’t seem to get along, and Kimber’s crush on Keane isn’t making things any easier. When a violent attack separates Dana from their caravan, the sexy Erlking saves her just in the nick of time . . . and makes it clear that he hasn’t given up on making her his own.

Arriving at Titania’s beautiful palace should be a relief. But Dana is soon implicated in an assassination attempt against Titania’s granddaughter, and is suddenly a fugitive, forced to leave her father behind as she and her friends flee for their lives. Will she be able to prove her innocence before the forces of the Seelie Court—or, worse, the Erlking—catch up with her? And will she save her father before he pays the ultimate price in her stead?


The love square comes to an end!!  Nothing brings me more pleasure when a painful love triangle comes to end, or so I thought.   It brings me greater pleasure when a terrible love square ends!!  It is a great thing for this series since I love it so much.

What’s not so great is that it’s not Ethan who gets the can, no I think Dana actually loves him more.  It’s my dear Keane, but in this case it’s OK.  As a team Keane fan, I think I can speak for us all when I say he went to a better love interest.  In defense of Ethan, he’s actually grownup a lot.  The ordeal of being under the Erklings thumb has matured him, that doesn’t mean he loses those annoying-boy-wine moments.  It’s safe to say he still gets on my nerves, but I can deal with him now.  The role of the Erkling really gets confusing in Sirensong. His actions are still pretty self serving, but he does things that make you wonder about him.  Maybe deep down—past his scheming and manipulative core—he’s a decent guy.  Well . . . enough that I can say I don’t feel too guilty for swooning over him.  After all he killed that nasty bargain about Dana’s virginity dilemma. Thank you!!

Another great thing is that Dana’s magical powers are used more and we get to see them develop.  Her ability to make the Faye mortal is chilling, and she’s started to add a little more  “physical” power behind it.   The magic of the fairy realm also gets explored, though it stays firmly within the Seelie Court.  It’s pretty much the standard “vision” of the fiarie realm.  You know lots of forests, house made to blend in, the vegetation is commanded to move and do what they want, and the Seelie court is a towering fortress.  Still it’s lots of fun, I for one never get tired of it.

While I don’t think Sirensong is as good as the second book—Shadawspell—it’s definitely another great entry to the series.  However, author Jenna Black states Sirensong is the last entry.   It’s truly sad.  Black’s series has to be one of the most unique takes on fairies in the Urban Fantasy genre.   Painful doesn’t even begin to describe how I feel about this series dying before it even gets a decent chance.  Worse series get dragged out, and yet the publishers don’t want to endorse this one.    Here’s to crossing my fingers that the Faeriewalker books will rise from the ashes and get a second chance.  After all this book finished up enough not to be a painful end, but there’s clearly more places it NEEDS to go.

Sexual Content:  Kana thinks a lot about sex, a lot.  Dana has a few make out scenes and she walks in on someone(s) clearly just finishing up with a bedroom scene.  There is elitist/family abuse in this book, at times it made me grimace.

Rating: 3/5 Adored it, just a few minor details held it back.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

Daughter of Smoke and BoneAmazon:Daughter of Smoke and Bone 
Goodreads: Daughter of Smoke and Bone
Genre: Paranormal YA
Series: N/A

Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky.

In a dark and dusty shop, a devil's supply of human teeth grown dangerously low.

And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war.

Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she's prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands"; she speaks many languages--not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she's about to find out.

When one of the strangers--beautiful, haunted Akiva--fixes his fire-colored eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?

Read a very unique review over at ATUF and I just couldn’t say no.

Witches of East End by Melissa de la Cruz

Witches of East End (The Beauchamp Family, #1)Amazon: Witches of East End
Goodreads: Witches of East End
Genre: Paranormal YA
Series: The Beauchamp Family, Book 1

From the author of the highly addictive and bestselling Blue Bloods series, with almost 3 million copies sold, comes a new novel, Melissa de la Cruz's first for adults, featuring a family of formidable and beguiling witches.

The three Beauchamp women--Joanna and her daughters Freya and Ingrid--live in North Hampton, out on the tip of Long Island. Their beautiful, mist-shrouded town seems almost stuck in time, and all three women lead seemingly quiet, uneventful existences. But they are harboring a mighty secret--they are powerful witches banned from using their magic. Joanna can resurrect people from the dead and heal the most serious of injuries. Ingrid, her bookish daughter, has the ability to predict the future and weave knots that can solve anything from infertility to infidelity. And finally, there's Freya, the wild child, who has a charm or a potion that can cure most any heartache.

For centuries, all three women have been forced to suppress their abilities. But then Freya, who is about to get married to the wealthy and mysterious Bran Gardiner, finds that her increasingly complicated romantic life makes it more difficult than ever to hide her secret. Soon Ingrid and Joanna confront similar dilemmas, and the Beauchamp women realize they can no longer conceal their true selves. They unearth their wands from the attic, dust off their broomsticks, and begin casting spells on the townspeople. It all seems like a bit of good-natured, innocent magic, but then mysterious, violent attacks begin to plague the town. When a young girl disappears over the Fourth of July weekend, they realize it's time to uncover who and what dark forces are working against them.

With a brand-new cast of characters, a fascinating and fresh world to discover, and a few surprise appearances from some of the Blue Blood fan favorites, this is a page-turning, deliciously fun, magical summer read fraught with love affairs, witchcraft, and an unforgettable battle between good and evil.

Loved her Blue Bloods so I just have to try out her world of witches.

 Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire

Beautiful DisasterAmazon: Beautiful Disaster
Goodreads: Beautiful Disaster
Genre: Contemporary YA
Series: N/A

The new Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn’t drink or swear, and she has the appropriate percentage of cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance between her and the darkness of her past, but when she arrives at college with her best friend America, her path to a new beginning is quickly challenged by Eastern University’s Walking One-Night Stand.

Travis Maddox, lean, cut, and covered in tattoos, is exactly what Abby needs—and wants—to avoid. He spends his nights winning money in a floating fight ring, and his days as the charming college co-ed. Intrigued by Abby’s resistance to his charms, Travis tricks her into his daily life with a simple bet. If he loses, he must remain abstinent for a month. If Abby loses, she must live in Travis’ apartment for the same amount of time. Either way, Travis has no idea that he has met his match.

This cover is terrible.  It actually makes me want to vomit in my mouth a little.  However, a goodreads friend recommended to me. The kind that you don’t pass up a recommendation from.

Shaedes of Gray by Amanda Bonilla

In the shadows of the night, Darian has lived alone for almost a century. Made and abandoned by her former love, Darian is the last of her kind-an immortal Shaede who can slip into darkness as easily as breathing. With no one else to rely on, she has taught herself how to survive, using her unique skills to become a deadly assassin.

When Darian's next mark turns out to be Xander Peck, King of the Shaede Nation, her whole worldview is thrown into question. Darian begins to wonder if she's taken on more than her conscience will allow. But a good assassin never leaves a job unfinished...

Sounds wonderfully unique!  Plus the cover is stunning and that red hair just captivates me.

The Restorer by Amanda Stevens

The Restorer (Graveyard Queen #1)Amazon: The Restorer

Series: Graveyard Queen, Book 1

My name is Amelia Gray. I'm a cemetery restorer who sees ghosts. In order to protect myself from the parasitic nature of the dead, I've always held fast to the rules passed down from my father. But now a haunted police detective has entered my world and everything is changing, including the rules that have always kept me safe.

It started with the discovery of a young woman's brutalized body in an old Charleston graveyard I've been hired to restore. The clues to the killer—and to his other victims—lie in the headstone symbolism that only I can interpret. Devlin needs my help, but his ghosts shadow his every move, feeding off his warmth, sustaining their presence with his energy. To warn him would be to invite them into my life. I've vowed to keep my distance, but the pull of his magnetism grows ever stronger even as the symbols lead me closer to the killer and to the gossamer veil that separates this world from the next.

This one has been popping up enough for me to finally think it’s time to try it out.

Vlog Book Tour – Part 2

It feels like such a miracle to actually have the book completely wrapped up with part 2!

Yet again the web cam gave was acting up, so there are parts that kind of froze.  Either way I think it will OK.  Everybody has been nagging me all week for the UF shelves.

Part 2 includes Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, Mercedes Lackey, and my Shelf of Shame.

Phew! Hope everyone enjoyed!

Vlog Book Tour – Part 1

That’s right everyone!  Finally it is time! Or at least for it’s time for the first bit of my book shelf tour.  So far there will be three—Youtube just upped my upload time so I might fit the part 2 and 3 to one.

Any who, I tried to cover all the suggestions you guys gave me.  Closet up of all the books? Check.  Book case overviews? Check.  Explanation and intro of every books?  Well sort of.  I tried to be quick and not bore people to death!!  (I may or may not have succeeded.)

Sorry about some of the bad shots.  To avoid buying a codec for my camera and video camera I had to film this using my web cam.  That means I balanced web cam in one hand and laptop in other. On a stool!  I’m not the most well balanced person, so some shots are not clear.  Plus, the cam feed started acting up so I couldn’t all ways see what I was filming.

Part 1 is my YA, Manga, and Epic Fantasy shelves.  So with out further babble enjoy the show!

All righty!! Next up will be my famous Urban Fantasy shelves, my PNR shelves, Mercedes Lackey, and my shame shelf.  Which should be uploaded before the end of the week!!

Hope you enjoyed!

Even a vampire has to face her inner demons…

Kat Redding is the very thing she hunts: a vampire, thirsting for blood, capable of killing any creature unlucky enough to get in her path. The difference is, Kat kills her own kind in order to protect human Purebloods. She’s good at what she does. Good enough to earn the nickname Lady Death—and the enmity of every bloodthirsty being around. But now a vampire Count is intent on merging his House with a werewolf cult to create a force of terrifying power.

Kat can’t allow that to happen. Even if it means taking on a den of weres and a vampire more ruthless than any she’s encountered before. She has the weapons, the skill, and a few allies. But that may not be enough to eliminate the Count before her own dark nature rises to the surface—and costs her whatever is left of her humanity…

The cover caught my eye first, but I was still going to dismiss it.  Then that very first line in the description settled it for me.  Female leads as Vampires just tickle me!!

I just love being in the head of one.  Too much in UF the vampire is always a guy, or she’s dating a vampire.

The school with its talented teachers and bright students is a dream for a science and math geek like Jane. She also loves her new friends, including hilarious poetry-spouting rich girl, Mary Violet. But the longer Jane stays at Birch Grove, the more questions she has about the disappearance of another scholarship girl and a missing faculty member.

Jane discovers one secret about Birch Grove, which only leads to more mysteries. What is she willing to sacrifice in order to stay at this school...and be bound to Birch Grove forever?

What is it about that over used private school, with lots of secrets, that keeps me crawling back?? No really, they’re starting to get old . . . but I love them!

Stressed and tired from hiding, Avry is abducted by a band of rogues who, shockingly, value her gift above the golden bounty offered for her capture.

I gasped . . . or tried to. My mouth opened, but I couldn’t draw breath. . . . His lips, pearly wet, parted and he blew into my mouth. My lungs expanded beneath his weight. When I exhaled he sucked in my breath and his weight turned from cold marble into warm living flesh.

Since accepting a teaching position at remote Fairwick College in upstate New York, Callie McFay has experienced the same disturbingly erotic dream every night: A mist enters her bedroom, then takes the shape of a virile, seductive stranger who proceeds to ravish her in the most toe-curling, wholly satisfying ways possible. Perhaps these dreams are the result of writing her bestselling book, The Sex Lives of Demon Lovers. After all, Callie’s lifelong passion is the intersection of lurid fairy tales and Gothic literature—which is why she finds herself at Fairwick’s renowned folklore department, living in a once-stately Victorian house that, at first sight, seemed to call her name.

But Callie soon realizes that her dreams are alarmingly real. She has a demon lover—an incubus—and he will seduce her, pleasure her, and eventually suck the very life from her. Then Callie makes another startling discovery: He’s not the only mythical creature in Fairwick. As the tenured witches of the college and the resident fairies in the surrounding woods prepare to cast out the incubus, Callie must accomplish something infinitely more difficult—banishing this demon lover from her heart.

I forgot to add this when it popped up in the Cover Coveting, but really it’s the cover.

Elizabeth is an asrai, a rare English water fae, and she may be the only one in Piefferburg stealthier than Niall. She has her own reasons for guarding the two pieces and wanting the walls of Piefferburg to remain intact—even if it means denying her fae sisters and brothers their freedom.

Tess, a blacksmith’s daughter from a tiny hamlet near the mysterious Dragonswood, finds herself caught in the crosshairs of fate when she is accused of witchery and has to flee for her life along with her two best friends.
