Siren’s Fury is the second book in The Storm Siren Trilogy, and if you haven’t read the first, Storm Siren, this review will spoil it for you. While I am pretty sure I like the idea of this series (and the gorgeous covers) more than I like the actual series, I enjoyed the second book enough that I want to finish the series. I rated both books in the series four stars.
“I thrust my hand toward the sky as my voice begs the Elemental inside me to waken and rise. But it’s no use. The curse I’ve spent my entire life abhorring—the thing I trained so hard to control—no longer exists.”
Nym has saved Faelen only to discover that Draewulf stole everything she valued. Now he’s destroyed her Elemental storm-summoning ability as well.
When Nym sneaks off with a host of delegates to Bron, Lord Myles offers her the chance for a new kind of power and the whispered hope that it may do more than simply defeat the monster she loathes. But the secrets the Bron people have kept concealed, along with the horrors Draewulf has developed, may require more than simply harnessing a darker ability.
They may require who she is.
Set against the stark metallic backdrop of the Bron kingdom, Nym is faced with the chance to change the future.
Or was that Draewulf’s plan for her all along?
Siren’s Fury picked up where Storm Siren left off with that horrifying cliffhanger. Now that Nym’s only remaining love interest has been absorbed by the Draewulf, things get a little more interesting. Nym focuses on what she could possibly do to unattach the Draewulf (nothing, everyone assures her) and on discovering exactly what the Draewulf plans. Readers will get a look at Eogan’s spartan-like society in this book, but for the most part it is a character driven narrative. There is quite a bit of action and several surprises. The loss of some characters and the retention of others changes the dynamic and the addition of a cryptic new prophecy keeps the story fresh. Readers won’t be happy initially, but the ending is quite satisfactory and provides a nice affirmation for both Nym and readers. If you enjoyed the first book, you will enjoy this book just as much, if not more.
I received an ARC from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
