Summary/ product description: “At the end of Siren's Storm, the Sirens were defeated, and now the town of Walfang is once again a peaceful beach community.
Or is it? Gretchen and Will are still haunted by the memories of the night the Sirens were destroyed—Gretchen because she can't remember what happened and Will because he doesn't know how to tell Gretchen what he saw. He doesn't even understand what he saw, but he does know now that Gretchen is more than what she seems, more than a human girl. And at the same time, he is more in love with her than ever.
Gretchen knows there's something wrong, too. She feels like an alien in her own body, but she doesn't know why. And she feels a presence stalking her at every turn. Have the Sirens returned to Walfang? Or has some other force come to claim her?”

My Rating: êêêê

My Review: Great sequel. Better and deeper than the first book. The mythology just keeps getting better and better. Gretchen’s becoming the Fury! It reminds me of the Angelfire series mixed with Tricia Rayburn’s Siren series. The book goes a lot faster and is way shorter, but it still leaves an impression. I love the resort town setting, and the mysterious happenings. Sleepy seaside towns full of dark secrets and creatures. Sirens and a Fury. Gretchen is a great character. Will’s okay, but I like Angus better. He’s funny and always looking for a story. Asia’s gone, but the story goes on.

If you’re looking for a mermaid book, this series doesn’t include any sea kingdoms or mer-people. These are sirens. Bad mermaids. If you liked the Siren series, this series is similar.

Cover Art Review: I like the color, and the hair. But it feels boring otherwise. It needs more to say that it’s paranormal. The glow and flames on the title looks cool.
