Review: Sirensong by Jenna Black
Author: Jenna Black
Publisher: St. Martins Press
Publication Date: July 5, 2011
Description: 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?
My Review: Sirensong was a great book! I loved it much more that Faeriewalker and Glimmerglass combined. It was much more entertaining and a fun a quick read.
I must admit that my reasons for purchasing Faeriewalker were quite random (it was the only book I had seen that originally came out in paperback and not hardback...it seemed strange and it was therefore pretty cheap, besides--the cover was pretty and we all know how much i love pretty covers) I liked both Faeriewalker and Glimmerglass, but Sirensong took the cake. Although Sirensong had a slow start like its predecessors, once the action began you couldn't put the book down. I was frequently upset while reading Faeriewalker and Glimmerglass. I felt like Dana was stupid with a lot of her decisions; however, Dana seemed to make good choices (for the most part) during this particular book. I continue to hate her mother, but whats new with that! Dana seems to be growing into herself as a Faeriewalker and I love it. I'd definitely want to be her friend.
In addition, Dana and Ethan's relationship has been getting quite hot and steamy and I love it. He's so sweet and yet still a bad boy. He's one of those guys you meet and cant help but feel some sort of attraction to (and it helps that his reputation proceeds him....he is definitely a bad boy!!) I just love their relationship. Dana is the perfect balance to him.
I don't want to give too much of this book away because it is so great so I will just tell you all to read it! It is truly great. This is the first book I have been able to give five stars to since I started this blog. I loved Sirensong.
