A Siren's Fury is something you don't want to face

I told you all before how this Siren would catch the world by storm, now it’s time to see her fury in the second book of the Storm Siren Trilogy!

Faelen is at last at peace with the Bron after the battle at the Keep with DraeWolf, but the battle is far from over for our Nym. With her best friends gone and Princess Rasha and Lord Myles both trying to get her come on their side of this battle Nym has more on her plate then she can handle.

This was one of the books I was really looking forward to this year, and after reading it I sort of have mixed feelings about it. The detail and imagery of Faelen and Bron are not lost; I am still taken away by how skillful Mery Webber is writing in first person. Very few can pull that off for more then one book. But I was beginning to question a little bit how this book series is considered Christian Fiction. All that I had seen so far in the first book was The Valley of Origin, and how the Elemental males were killed off.

And to top it off Nym was constantly going back and forth, repeating the same mistake over and over and over, almost till the very end! It was not until I looked in my bible to the book of Job did I begin to see some connection.

The same happens to all who forget God. The hopes of the godless evaporate. Their confidence hangs by a thread. They are leaning on a spider’s web. They cling to their home for security, but it won’t last. They try to hold it tight, but it will not endure” Job 8:13-15 NLT

After reading these two verses I saw there was reasons for Nym’s failed attempts, and why she was clinging to power so much. It was her security, the one thing she always had when everyone else betrayed or used her. But some readers without reading these verses might find it difficult to see any point throughout most of the book

In the end the book was okay, not as good as the first, but plenty enough to keep you hooked until the last book comes out. I look forward to the next book in the storm Siren trilogy.

Until next time I hope you have a blessed day!

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review, which I have given.
