    This is such an epic story! I can not WAIT for Sirens Song!

    Last year I tried to read Siren’s Fury but ended up putting it down halfway through for a few reasons.~Back then I didn’t have a co-blogger, so I needed new content and this book was taking too long for me to read.~Literally nothing had happened in the plot except that my girl Nym had stowed away on an airship.~I was utterly, utterly BORED. I am not one to say lightly that a book suffers from ‘middle book syndrome’ but by the gods NOW I UNDERSTAND.I put it aside with the plan that I’d pick it back up again once I had more time. That was now.Unfortunately I can’t say that this book was worth finishing.First of all, what I loved about the first book, Storm Siren, was Nym’s Elemental training and her relationship with her friends and love interest. While we get a repeat of the former (a boring, repetitive, ongoing repeat) we don’t get the latter since all of her friends are dead or otherwise incapacitated.I found Siren’s Fury to be repetitive, with Nym and her allies talking incessantly about their plan rather than acting on it, being pushed around by guards except for one bizarre moment when Nym was allowed to walk free and obtain new powers that didn’t quite make sense, talking more about the plan, attempting to complete the plan and failing, more talking, more being pushed around, and more failed attempts at the ultimate goal. The plot was so thin it simply repeated itself over and over. I lost count of the number of times she tried to defeat the villain and he simply swept her aside like a naughty puppy, free to give her another chance later one once she’s rested.Nym was frustrating because she made a lot of ill-considered decisions. She outright ignores advice offered to her, trusts the wrong people, allows herself to be put in bad situations and then feels sorry for herself as she angsts on why she behaved that way.The loss of her Elemental power was supposed to be a secret, yet she wasn’t treated with the respect such a dangerous prisoner deserves. She was forever reaching for her hidden knives, which was no small movement, and she was forever fighting urges to kill people that had previously kicked her own butt. She was given a new power (if this is so easy, why don’t more people do this?) which she then had to train at, and the rules of her new power weren’t explained. She could pull ability and also possibly air from a person by touching them but also not touching them, she could pull air from a room yet the people she killed that way looked like they’d been attacked by an animal… there was no consistency here. Also Myles’ speech impediment was inconsistent as fuck, too.Add to this that Nym had a deadline to save her lover and her allies only seemed to make her want to wait for no reason at all. Despite this deadline, there was no tension and no real major conflict. Draewulf the villain isn’t scary at all, in fact he seems to delight in tying threats up rather than killing them, and he loves a good old bantering session giving Nym plenty of time to attempt to defeat him. He’s about as scary as a Disney villain.And the pacing was all over the place. I was so bored reading this that I had to reward myself every time I finished a few chapters by reading another book I was enjoying.Why did I do all of this? Why did I bother finishing it if I didn’t like it? Well, Mary Weber blew me away with Book #1 and I have faith something from that book can be recaptured in Book #3.PS There was a father-son team introduced called Kenan and Kel.-------------------------------------------------This review was originally posted on The Moonlight Library DNF at 39% I hate to do this because I absolutely LOVED Storm Siren and even pre-ordered Siren’s Fury in hardcover because I was so sure I was going to love it, but I have to DNF.I’ve been reading this book for two and a half weeks and I’ve only reached between one-third and one half way through.And in the story, literally nothing has happened except Nym’s lost her powers and stowed away on a ship to the enemy territory.It’s the first part of the above sentence that is signing this book’s death warrant. I want to love this book because Storm Siren was so great, but taking away the one thing that made Nym interesting – her power – is really the biggest issue with this book. Without her power, or even her still struggling to control it, or her mastering it and using it in petty ways, that’s ruined the entire book. I’m just not interested in a storm siren with no storm to siren. I don’t care about Nym doing normal person stuff – I want to see her using the power she learned to control to wreak havoc and kick ass.I’m really sad that it’s the actual plot of the book that’s boring me to death, but I have other books I’ve fallen behind on reading because I thought this would be a quick one and it’s taking me forever.Farewell, Siren’s Fury at 39%, and may we meet again someday when I can love you like you deserve.

    Where to begin? Sigh. Okay, I have a confession. It’s not a pretty one. It’s not something I’m proud of, but here goes:I’ve been in a fantasy reading slump.I know, I know. Stop shouting. It’s horrible. The girl who loves to be whisked off to other realms, the one who dreams of magical wardrobes and happily ever afters, has not been in the mood for fantasy.Excuse me while I hit myself repeatedly over the head.I was terrified. This has never happened to me before. I mean, I’ve never NOT been in the mood for a good fantasy story. It was going to take a seriously FABULOUS work of awesomesauce to get me out of my slump.Enter Siren’s Fury.Mary Weber weaves just the right amount of sass and kick-a** (It’s not cursing if I didn’t type the actual word), into a deliciously written story readers will cheer for. Nym is back, and she’s done playing by the rules. Willing to do whatever she must to save Eogan from Draewulf, Nym takes matters into her own hands, risking her own life to rescue another.Move over Celaena Sardothein. There’s a new heroine in town.There is an epidemic of whiny, boy-crazy female leads in YA books. Sometimes I just want to reach into a book and slap some sense into these girls. Nym is a refreshing exception. I don’t know how Mary Weber does it, but somehow she manages to give me everything I want in a female lead. Strong but feminine, flawed but not annoying. Plus, the romance is still there (everyone knows I love–no NEED–my romance), but it’s not overdone. The love story shines through without drowning out the rest of the book. It’s satisfying, but leaves me wanting more.And more. And more…Strong female heroine? Check. Swoon-worthy romance? Check. Spectacular writing? Check, check, and double-check.The world-building in Siren’s Fury will appeal to fans of the fantasy genre, but it’s still unique and something all it’s own. I’ll admit, a problem for me with high-fantasy is that I get bored easily with long-winded descriptions and too many names and places to remember. But somehow Mary Weber has managed to keep the fast-paced tone of a sci-fi or dystopian, while still giving us a vivid, made-up world you can’t help but get sucked into. It’s never-boring, just-one-more-chapter, OMG fiction of the highest degree. This sequel lives up to it’s predecessor. I’m pleased to announce my fantasy slump is over. If it returns, I know just the cure–after all, book 3 in the Storm Siren Trilogy releases in 2016!Disclosure: I received Siren’s Fury for review from BookLookBloggers.

    Siren’s Fury drew me in immediately. How could it not after the insanely torturous cliffhanger of book one, right? Like Storm Siren, this book was quite different from anything I’ve read before. I don’t say it’s for everyone. It’s pretty dark, and stuff surrounding the villain is pretty creepy. So, if that’s not your thing, then you probably won’t enjoy it.That said, I thought it was a fascinating book. About three quarters of the way in, I wasn’t sure what I was going to rate it because so much of it was so depressing, but the end, wow. I thought the end was great. Initially I gave the book four stars when I first finished, but considering the amount I thought about it afterwards, I’ve decided to bump it up to five because of the ending.What I particularly loved about the story was the lesson I took away from it. Whether it was Mary Weber’s intention or not, what I drew from it is the dangers of taking matters into your own hands and doing whatever you can, even if you’ve been warned against it, to change something. That was Nym in this book. While she was doing it to try to save someone, she ventured into a lot of dangerous territory. And that can be us, can’t it? We want something or want to change something so bad that sometimes we take matters into our own hands instead of trusting God for the outcome. Such decisions can be disastrous and dangerous.And my very favorite part of the book was right at the end (view spoiler)[ where it showed how love was more powerful than all the evil and darkness. (hide spoiler)] That was the part that made me go, “wow.” Because, after all, love is that powerful. It’s Jesus love that led Him to die for us. Love is more powerful than evil and darkness. So, while this might not be the sort of overtly Christian book I normally read, I highly appreciate the truths that were woven into the story.I received a copy of this book free from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest review.

    Thanks to Netgalley and Thomas Nelson for giving me this book to review.Nym has saved Faelen with her elemental powers, but has discovered that the Draewulf is not dead as everyone believed, but has taken over the body of Eogen. With Draewulf having destroyed her powers, Nym feels powerless and decides to sneak in with the delegates to Bron, with her new friend Rasha. While in Bron, Nym tries to discover Draewulf’s plans and Lord Myles offers her a chance to get new powers. But is this new power worth the cost?Siren’s Fury is an enjoyable sequel to Storm Siren, but it did suffer from middle book syndrome. It has action, suspense and magic but it does not have as much romance as the last book and is slower paced. Nym has changed since the last book as she is much tougher and determined, but she does make a lot of rushed decisions and mistakes, however, her reasoning does make sense. I did miss Colin in this book as he added charm and humour that was missing. But I did really like Rasha as she really helped and supported Nym, but did act like they had known each other for more than a few days. This book ends on a smaller cliff-hanger than the last book and I am looking forward to reading the next book. I would recommend Siren’s Fury to fans of the first book Storm Siren.This and my other reviews can be found at Amethyst Bookwyrm

    I really enjoyed the first book in this trilogy and even though it ended on a killer of a cliffhanger, it made me even more eager to try the next installment, which is why I jumped at the chance to read it, hoping like crazy it would be even better than the first and thankfully, it was.This second installment held me captive like the first hadn't quite managed to do. I was completely invested in both Nym, Eogan, and Rasha's future not to mention the villain of the story, Draewulf. Action packed, emotional, and keep you on the edge of your seat twists, this second installment was not a filler read by any means. It held its own and made me side with those I never thought I would like and fall in love with those that I already did like.Things are heating up, getting more serious, and dire than ever before as Nym and her friend's fight Draewulf and try to bring peace back to the nations. Nym is stronger, fiercer, and more loyal than ever to those that she has come to trust, love, and bond with and I loved seeing how much she has grown as a person and as a warrior. She has never had it easy and this book doesn't make it easy for her either but what she is, is fighter and I really to admire that about her.So much happens in this that is was almost non-stop action, tension, and mystery and I truly loved every minute of it. I can't wait to see what happens in book three.

    Siren's Fury is the second book in the Storm Siren Trilogy. This installment picks up after the huge ending in Storm Siren. Nym had saved Faelen but it seems that Draewulf has taken the one thing Nym cared about from her and now he seems to have taken her elemental abilities from her as well. Nym teams up with Lord Myles with each of them using one another for different reasons but Myles gives Nym the chance to gain a new type of power to be able to take on Draewulf.I'll try to keep this review as spoil free as possible with it being the second book so it's a bit tough to not mention a few things to explain my feelings at the end of this one. I will say I enjoyed the first book a bit more than this one, it was still good overall but I found it a bit depressing with some of the things going on in the story. Decided to go with 3.5 stars for this one as I was still hooked on the entire story and wanting to know where this would go.When finishing Siren's Fury I'm definitely looking forward to seeing how the whole series wraps up in Siren's Song. The world, the magic and the characters involved have me hoping for a really epic conclusion. I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Aaaaahhhhh! What a ride that was. I love Nym! She has gone through an incredible amount in these two books, and she's gained and lost so much along the way, but still she keeps going forward. Even when I was worried about her choices, I admire her determination and her capacity to learn and fail and grow. This installment takes place in a short time frame and is mostly focused on one task that is tied to that evil cliffhanger in STORM SIREN. Along the way we get a broader look at this world and the different lands and people that inhabit it. We learn a lot more about the mythology and magic, and what evil Draewulf *shudders* is planning. Nym spends time with Myles, who is more complex than I expected. I enjoyed getting to know Rasha better and I love Kel so much! More of him, please! This book was romantic too - despite the horrifying circumstances certain characters are facing. No triangles at all. The end isn't as soul crushing as the last one. It is happy in some ways and desperate in others. Lots more story to come and I cannot wait! Full review to come.

    2016 Book AwardsRunner Up: Heroine of the Year 2016 (awarded to Nym)(more information about these awards on my blog)Actual rating: 3.5Okay, so this story was pretty much like this1 - Lots of things happening, lots of information, watch out, alert, help!2 - Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Lalalalala.3 - Lots of things happening, lots of information, watch out, alert, help!So yeah; middle part was really slow but the beginning and the end were exciting to read. A bit of a downer compared to the first book. I'd hoped for more action now that they went to Bron and the Draewulf is on the move and all of that, but it was mainly sneaking around and trying to gather information. And not in an exciting way.(view spoiler)[Also I kinda almost hoped that Eogan wouldn't survive Draewulf, because that would have made the motives in the next book even more interesting. (hide spoiler)]Anyway; the ending made me kinda excited for the next book, but will probably not read it until next year.

    Okay. Wow. A lot just happened in the course of a week in Nym's world. This is a hard one to review or give thoughts on without entirely spoiling it for those who haven't read the first one, so I'm going to go ahead and warn you, if you haven't read Storm Siren, don't read this review.

    If you all remember, I was left reeling at the end of Storm Siren, the first book in Mary Weber's debut series. It has one of the more painful cliffhangers I've experienced, made worse because the second book was months and months away from release. I've been in a ball of denial ever since, along with my friends Nick and Lauren. We were supposed to buddy read this together, but I'm hoping they'll forgive my haste. :)When I finally got my hands on Siren's Fury a few weeks ago, the very first thing I did was skip ahead to see how the cliffhanger played out. (You can't blame me; I was in knots!) I thought I found all that I was looking for, but once again Mary is a clever little fiend. Reading it the proper way, from beginning to end, shows just how many surprises she has up her sleeves. I was prepared for a very minimal amount of romance and to possibly be dissatisfied because of it, but (yay!) I enjoyed the direction of the plot very much. Even if the romance does take a back seat, her book is very romantic, and there was plenty to keep my heart aflutter. Plus, the world she has created is just so fascinating, and her characters - especially Nym - are brought to life so vividly.I won't go into much detail about Siren's Fury's plot, but in a nutshell: Nym's country is now at peace with her neighbor, Bron, thanks to Nym's Elemental abilities bringing the war to a stunning halt. Except things aren't all as they seem, and evil has not yet quit the world. Draewulf - a power-hungry being who can slip into the skin of others - has made himself known to Nym, in the most heartbreaking way possible. It's for this reason she seeks power beyond even her own, in order to destroy him and rescue those she loves most. Nym's determination is the very thing that drives all of her decisions and actions in Siren's Fury. It's a dangerous path because she's mingling with corrupt magic and people she does not trust. Despite my real fear for her, though, I actually loved this about her character. It really shows her compassion and strength. She's a fighter, never willing to give up even when it seems all hope is lost. I had so much love for this girl in Storm Siren, and that has only grown with the sequel. She's a mixture of vulnerability and perseverance. Being an Elemental with immense power, Nym has always felt like a curse and never at home in her own body. It's only toward the end of the first book that she even feels a measure of self-worth. She was finally starting to learn that what she once thought of as weak is actually tougher than it looks. That internal struggle manifests itself in a different way in Siren's Fury, when she has to fight against a power that wants to consume her. For a while I worried that the Nym I came to admire and have such compassion for was being leeched away, but she always comes back to the person she knows she wants to be. She chooses love over hate again and again, which makes her one of the easiest characters for me to sympathize with.*Spoilers in this next section.*(view spoiler)[I do want to say a little bit about the romance, because Nym and Eogan have become one of my favorite pairs. Due to circumstances, they do not share as many scenes together as in Storm Siren, but the scenes they do share are magnificent. Their romance is still very much the book's beating heart. I'm certain they will be a force to be reckoned with in the final book, because they make a fantastic team that burns bright with their chemistry and devotion. I loved the way Nym fought for Eogan, and the way he always makes her feel safe. (hide spoiler)]If you haven't already, I highly recommend starting this fantasy series! Mary Weber's writing is gorgeous, her plotting both clever and complex, and I found it impossible not to sink right into Nym's story and world. The third book can't get here soon enough! ***Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for approving my request in exchange for an honest review!***This review can also be found at Love at First Page.

    Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick & Dirty: Epic high fantasy set in a captivating world with interesting characters, action packed adventure, and suspenseful plot! I have really enjoyed this series so far and can’t wait to read the final book!Opening Sentence: Five minutes earlier…The Review:To start things off, I have to warn you that this review will contain spoilers for book one. It is pretty much impossible to review this book without giving away some spoilers as to what happened at the end of the last book. So if you haven’t read Storm Siren, I would recommend skipping this review, and I would also recommend you go and read Storm Siren now because this is an amazing series!Nym was able to stop the war between Bron and Faelen, but the price she paid was way higher then she was expecting! Her beloved Eogan has been stolen from her by the evil Draewulf, and now her precious elemental powers are gone as well! She always thought of her powers as a curse, but now that she has finally mastered how to use them she feels worthless without them.As a ship of delegates are getting ready to take off for negotiations with Bron, Nym decides she should go along. She knows that Draewulf is planning something terrible and even though she no longer has her powers she can’t just stand idly by, and watch him destroy everything she has worked to protect. She also learns that there are new abilities she can obtain that may help her to save the man she loves, but these new abilities are much darker and harder to control then her elemental powers. With war coming and everyone Nym holds dear in jeopardy, she must find a way to defeat Draewulf once and for all!Nym is just one of those characters you can’t help but love. She is a strong heroine that has been through a lot and she has had to learn to take care of herself. Throughout this book she goes through many difficult changes in her life, but instead of running away like most people would she fights back. Her determination to save the people she loves knows no bounds and even though she makes many mistakes along the way she always tries to do the right thing! You also get to see a much darker side to her personality, and the struggles she endures throughout the book made me respect her even more then I already did. One of my favorite things about Nym is her moody attitude, she can be pretty feisty at times, but she can also be a total sweetheart too. She is such a well rounded character and I can’t wait to see where her story goes next!The cast of secondary characters is pretty big, so I am just going to talk a little bit about a few of my favorites! To avoid any major spoilers I’m not going to talk about Eon and Draewulf, but I will say they were both written brilliantly! The first person I want to mention is Lord Myles. In the first book he is a pretty minor character and for the most part I didn’t really care about him all that much. But he plays a much bigger part in this book, and I think he was probably one of my favorite characters. He is a sly person and I honestly can’t tell you if he is a villain or a hero. Everything he does is calculated and he isn’t a very honest person, but he has rare moments where his good qualities shine through. The best thing about his character was that he kept me guessing and I loved that.The only other character I am going to mention is Rasha. She is a princess from the kingdom of Cashlin, and she has been sent as a delegate for her people during this time of war. Her and Nym have developed a good friendship throughout the story and I loved watching them interact together. Rasha is one of the only people that will stand up to Nym and tell her how stupid she is acting at times. She is the type of friend that will hold you accountable for your actions, but she will bend over backwards to help you. There is still much to Rasha that remains a mystery and I am excited to see how things play out for her in the next book.Siren’s fury is an epic high fantasy brimming with adventure, romance, and intrigue! After the terrible cliffhanger I was left with in Storm Siren, I have been desperate to read this book and it did not disappoint! I will admit that the beginning of the book started out a little slower then I would have personally liked, but it soon picked up and I found that I couldn’t put it down. I love how the story developed and grew from the first book! The world that Weber has created is so captivating and intriguing! There was very little romance in the book, but what was present was perfection! I truly enjoyed the entire cast of characters and each one of them left their own little stamp on my heart! The plot really thickened and while the ending wasn’t nearly as heart wrenching as the first book, it still left me dying to see what’s going to happen next. High fantasy has always been one my favorite genres and this series has quickly claimed a spot in my favorites! I would recommend everyone give this series a try, especially if you are a fan of high fantasy!Notable Scene:“What the?” The siren in my veins begins fluttering and beating, like a bird flailing through. I try to jerk away, and for a second, I swear a cry breaks out from my rib cage before the hot surge courses in and cools to harden like doused metal underneath my skin, searing my blood to my bones. The siren’s scream falls silent and there is nothing but heaviness.My powers.My ability…I twitch my wrist at the sky to resummon the storm, but the clouds keep dissipating. What in hulls? I wrench harder, twisting my fingers to claim the night air, the wind, the rain.Except it’s not there.It’s gone.As if my Elemental blood has been drained and I am left a normal non-Uathuil, Faelen person.“What did you do?”FTC Advisory: Thomas Nelson/HarperCollins provided me with a copy of Siren’s Fury.

    Mary Weber's Storm Siren last year was one of my favorite debuts. It was one of those books that was a hidden gem for me and I was completely in love with it. However, it ended in one of the most brutal cliffhangers I have ever come across. With Siren's Fury, Mary Weber continues to amaze me with just how talented she is. Siren's Fury is not a book that suffers from any kind of middle-book syndrome and it's a book that has slotted Mary as one of my favorite authors.I was unsure of how the plot would develop in Siren's Fury with the brutal way that Storm Siren ended. I'm actually still not over multiple events from that book that basically slaughtered all my feels. Mary Weber is not afraid to kill off characters, so I was a little nervous about what would happen in Siren's Fury. She handled everything so brilliantly though. The world building was a lot stronger and I got a better field of it in this book. I loved all the power dynamics that the book explored and Mary Weber is an author that digs into the complexities of her world and her characters. Let me tell you, this book was not easy to read because there were some twists that shocked me. The near ending scenes particularly were nerve-wracking and nearly gave me multiple heart attacks. Despite how terrified I was during those last few scenes, I have to say the ending scenes were my favorite because of how emotionally invested I was in the story. I had a hard time putting down the book towards the end because I needed to know what was going to happen, but I was also secretly worried that we would have yet another soul-crushing cliffhanger. Thankfully, that doesn't happen. What made Siren's Fury an even better novel was Mary Weber's beautiful writing. She is honestly talented and words can't describe just how gorgeous her writing is. It's the sort of writing style that you need to experience yourself to fully grasp because I don't think I can do it any justice with my descriptions. It was hard for me to believe that this was only Mary Weber's second published novel.As far as the characters went, they were spectacular, as I expected them to be. Nym is a protagonist I have gotten very close to over the two books. I just loved how much stronger she had become in this installment. She was braver and much more confident in Siren's Fury. She's come so far throughout the series and I admired her perseverance to fight for her loved ones even more. I also loved how comfortable she was now in her skin compared to in Storm Siren's. Nym has to be one of my favorite YA fantasy characters of all time. Nym also had to make some complicated decisions in Siren's Fury, diving into dark magic which I'm sure will be explored more in the next book. We also got to see Nym interact quite a bit with Rasha and Myles. She had interesting and complicated relationships with both, but I liked how the author really dug deep and fleshed them out. Even her relationship with Draewolf had an interesting dynamic to it. Draewolf, the villain in this series, was truly despicable, the kind that you love to hate and can't wait to see die a slow miserable death. He was horrific in Siren's Fury, yet I couldn't help but be fascinated by how power-hungry he was. I'm looking forward to seeing what he has up his sleeves in the next book. A short note on the romance, the only thing I can say is that it took a back-burner because of situations that I can't delve more into because of spoilers. I was initially worried that the lack of romance would be a disappointment for me, but I was just so invested in other parts of the story, I didn't really mind its absence.Siren's Fury will go down as one of my favorite sequels of all-time. It was so beautifully written. This is a series that is underrated and I want more people to pick up because behind these gorgeous book covers lies a story that is even more beautiful with a strong protagonist you will love to root for and complex dynamics between good and evil. All I have to say is, don't wait, just pick it up and join me in fangirling over it.

    So I won this book, and I just want to take a moment to squeal about the epic-ly gorgeous cover! And how fantastic it looks in real life! And that cool spine ... can't wait to add it to my bookshelf!! *grins* I hope to purchase Storm Siren (Book 1) someday ... ah ... they'll look so pretty together! ^_^Anyway, onto my thoughts. Firstly, I was so excited to be back into Nym's adventure! (Let's just stop a second and realize what a fantastic name "Nym" is ... truly, I love it! *smiles*) Yes. Excitement. And nervousness. Like ... Eogan??!!So, I quite enjoyed this book for the most part. As you can see by my rating, I didn't like it as much as Storm Siren. I don't know ... I guess I liked the setting of the first book better. It was all so intriguing and mysterious and weird. (Haha.) And there was more variety and moving from place to place, I feel. Siren's Fury took place mostly aboard this airship (or something) I believe. I still liked it; I just missed some of the fantasy world.The draewulf ... *shudder* Absolutely horrifying! All through this book I'm hoping ... hoping!! Boy, it had you on edge at some points! There was continued gruesomeness and violence. I can't recall if it's more or less violent than the first book; probably around the same. It's a bit much for my taste, but not horridly. Just caution to younger readers. This is definitely for a little older audience. (Okay, there was the scene where Nym (view spoiler)[goes to a witch for help (this is shown to be a bad decision in the end), and it's quite a creepy and gross scene. Ick! (hide spoiler)] So it might actually have a little more violence/gruesomeness than the first book.) Also, Siren's Fury has some dark themes. It's this constant struggle with battling the evil around, and also the call for darkness within. Some of it could be a bit depressing. Nym struggles for most of the book with a critical decision ... should I play with darkness in order to get more power to save someone's life? This book also briefly touches on one of the main themes of Book 1, self-harm. I wouldn't call this series Christian fiction, but the author, Mary Weber, is a Christian, and I can see some poignant and valuable themes and allegories in her writings. Though dark, I feel a certain light shines through and some touching truth is shown. (view spoiler)[Like love, compassion, goodness ... triumphs over evil. (hide spoiler)] So there's a large amount of dark, and creepy, and violent, and some gruesomeness, but I think these books have a good message underneath. I look forward to seeing what the third and final book reveals!It was an intriguing sequel. Some crazy things are revealed. Nym's struggle is intense. And Eogan!!! Eek! I like the little boy that Nym comes to know, *smiles*Overall, I'm still quite fascinated and eager to see what happens next! Siren's Fury is a unique and wild fantasy, with darkness twisting through, and epic battles of good versus evil abounding. And sometimes the battle of right and wrong is fought within oneself. Have the courage to choose true goodness and love!Can't wait to see how Nym's journey unfolds!

    **Thank you to Thomas Nelson & Wunderkind PR for allowing me to read this in exchange for an honest review!**I read Siren's Fury a few weeks ago and absolutely loved it. I honestly didn't think that it could get any better, but Siren's Fury showed me differently! I loved this book even more than book one. Let me tell you why!I was actually kind of worried about reading this one after that ending from book one. I got so close to some characters and then boom, they were gone just like that! I was extremely worried that we'd lose even more characters that I came to love from book one in this book, though luckily, that didn't happen! Right off the beginning of the book, we find that Draewulf has overtaken someone close to Nym, and Nym doesn't know how to go about this because she doesn't know how long the person could last with Draewulf in his/her body. Nym also has her powers taken away, so she has none to even try to get the person back. However, Lord Myles says that he knows a way for her to get some magic, though he doesn't exactly say that it may not be the best magic for her to have. I loved Nym even more in this book. I loved how she would do absolutely anything for the people in her life she cared about, including the entire world that she lived in. She's a strong character who will stand up for what she believes is right, which is totally badass. I also learned to love Lord Myles in this book, even though I don't know if I was supposed to. I don't know why, but he started to grow on me since I know more about him now! I mean yes, he is a little bugger, but he's just one of those characters that you love to hate in my opinion. This book ended with yet another cliffhanger, which makes me just want to know what's going to happen in the final book! This series is just filled with romance, adventure, and suspense which makes it so hard to put down. It's a series worth checking out! Siren's Fury definitely does not suffer from second-book syndrome.

    Woah… That was intense. With such a glorious and momentous ending. There wasn’t too much of a cliffhanger. Thank goodness. But I still want the next book now!Nym has risked her life to save a country that held her as a slave and outcast. But in the process, she has loss the few things she held most dear. All because of the shape-shifter Draewulf. Then he takes away her abilities and she realizes that she must stop him, at all costs. She follows him on to a airship headed to Bron searching for a way to kill him, while Draewulf has a more sinister plan than she could ever imagine. When Lord Myles offers her an opportunity to get new powers that could destroy him, she must decide whether it is worth the cost of her very soul.I feel like I flew through this in a daze. It was crazy and intense…and a tiny bit creepy. There was no stop to the amount of emotion contained in this book. I love how it’s told. The similes are absolutely beautiful and made it so real. There was so much suspense and action and just the tense feelings between the characters kept me on the edge of my seat.In the second book of this trilogy, there are new secondary characters and more characters overall that were around and played important parts. So it wasn’t as isolated as the previous book, which was very nice. This was great, but I still miss Colin so badly. He just lightened up the page.There were so many hard decisions made. Ones that blurred the line between right in wrong. It got so twisted. This also made it more dark than the last one, but I loved it and it worked out pretty well.It was very fun and interesting to see more of this world besides just Faelen. Bron was very advanced in technology from Faelen. I wish that it had been more descriptive of it, but considering what the characters were doing, it was fine.Overall, this was an amazing book. I can’t wait to get my hands in the next one. How is it going to end? I’m recommending this to older teens who love fantasy. Such a unique read.You can check out this review on my blog too, at: https://aheartredeemed.wordpress.com/... Thanks!

    One of the most highly anticipated young adult novels of 2015 (or that’s been my experience), the “Siren” is back on store shelves and the wait finally over. Mary Weber’s follow up novel is here. With the heart-stopping ending to Storm Siren and more questions than we could handle left hanging, there was a lot to discover in book two. Now the adventure was about to continue inside the pages of this visually pretty novel. The opening picks up just where book one left off with Nym realizing that her mentor and the only person she’d truly come to love, Eogan was being used to house Draewulf for his own evil purposes. This is where the story begins and evolves from. Aided by Princess Rasha, Nym has to figure out how to defeat Draewulf, but holding her back is the man she sees each time she confronts Draewuld: Eogan. This leads to Nym and Rasha becoming stowaways; it’s this that gets our sequel in motion. What’s great about this fantasy series is its distinctive voice. Mary has packed quite the imaginative happenings, characters and events into this novel not to mention the dialogue. Mostly it’s serious, yes, but occasionally an unexpected, hilarious speck of witty humor we were not expecting creeps through Nym’s drudgery. These are the moments that cement this series to a class all its own. Those going into this expecting it to be like its predecessor will be disappointed. Book two is very different. Because of Nym’s journey to rescue the man she loves and honor the memory of those they lost, she’s very much all about silencing Draewulf’s plans. What results from this is a story with a lot of time inside Nym’s head (the reader relies on her to paint the image of what’s happening) and an engulfing shift towards a political theme. It’s about strategizing, forging alliances with people not to be trusted and survival while our heroes are surrounded on all sides by people who want to destroy the kingdoms and utilize the “Dark Army” to get what they want. Then there is Draewulf whose plans go deeper and are far more chilling that Nym could have imagined. The consequent story and outcome tends to be slower. Given the many strategy talks and meetings of the powers that be (in this world), this is a much more character-driven novel than book one. Or that’s my memory. I admit I have forgotten far too much of book one in terms of the smaller events that take place or the characters who didn’t get along and the reasons why. That being said, this story has a really important powerful theme for its heroine and is significant when measured by a superior “rule” because of that. There’s a line in the novel about power coming in different forms, but the truth is, it’s how we chose to use that which holds real power. Everything hinges on Nym’s choices. That line is the overhanging theme because of Nym’s choices and her ultimate discoveries. Though not as powerful as the first book (this book is also dependent on that first book, so make sure you pick it up first) simply in terms of the pace, this is definitely an excellent read for the fantasy lover. Full of tense negotiations, tepid pacts and creative whimsy, Siren’s Fury has everything you could possibly want or anticipate for this genre. Added to that is an epic action scene closing out the story, diverse characters and an airship. (No, seriously, guys that happens.) If you liked Mary’s debut, this novel is a must read. More insight into the characters means book three has no choice but to be epic. Sincere thanks to Mary Weber (and the publisher) for providing a complimentary ARC copy of this book for reviewing purposes.

    2.5 stars; I found Siren's Fury to be a rather frustrating read. Nym made some really stupid decisions. She did a lot of acting on emotion instead of thinking things through. In the first book, Storm Siren I thought Nym was portrayed as a slave pretty well, even though we only got her memories of this owner and that owner and next to no back story on that part of her life. This time though, I felt like Nym being a former slave just didn't ring true, because anyone who has been a slave for almost their entire life would know when to keep quiet and say nothing instead of continuously objecting to something that they are powerless to change and their objections will only make a situation worse. I also felt that too many of the good characters were killed off in book one and there wasn't anyone likeable enough to replace them in this book. Rasha was ok, and we did get a few moments where it looked like a real friendship was blossoming there with her and Nym, but it kept being ruined partly by Nym's stupidity and partly by Rasha's refusal to tell Nym things that were important,which is another thing that annoyed me about the book, too many people keeping vital information to themselves for no good reason. Kel, at first was an interesting character, but then disappeared for a huge chunk of the book. I was beginning to wonder why he was even introduced but then it became obvious that his character was just a device to spur Nym on to doing something stupid. This is the point where I felt like Nym being a former slave didn't ring true. And maybe that would have made more since and felt less stupid if there had actually been a lot more interaction between Nym and Kel to begin with, but as it was written, they really barely knew each other.I got a little bored with the repetitiveness of the story. How many times did Nym try to get rid of Draewulf? I lost count. She and everyone else in the book just seemed so inept through most of it. There were other little things that bothered me, like the airship suddenly dipping and they are all still standing on the deck instead of being knocked off their feet, but I guess the biggest problem I had with this book was that I just didn't like Nym the way I did in the first book. I missed the powerful Storm Siren from book one. So over-all this was a disappointing read that has an unresolved ending. It's book two in a trilogy and I probably will end up reading book three to see how it all ends, and in hopes that the last book is on par with the first one.

    3.75 stars. (Minus .25 stars cause there wasn't enough Eogan :p)Holy Hell and Damnations!These books are really out there aren't they?Not much surprises me anymore, whatever happens, I've just about always already ruled it as a possibility.But THIS.Just as its predecessor, surprised me.Didn't give me as big a shock as Storm Siren delivered but definitely knocked me over there.Just before starting this. I was gonna go on my reading hiatus.I know. I know. It doesn't make sense especially keeping my last review mind and how Storm Siren ended but it takes a lot to read books like these.It's ridiculous how invested you get. And to be honest, it was starting to take it's toll on me.But idiot that I am, despite knowing the magic Mary Weber swirls in her words, I still opened to the first page and seeing as how I'm writing/you're reading this, you can imagine what happened next. :PAnyway, what I loved about this book, was its desperation.The feeling that any outcome other than the one that you want is just unimaginable, forget acceptable.How you literally won't be able to bear any other conclusion.Like seeing that special someone on their death bed and yet, not being able to even conceive the possibility of them not recovering.It's absolutely mind boggling how well it was written.Oh and also that last battle!Holy Shit Sticks!I was grinning like a loon the entire time. And I swear had my parents seem me like that, it'd be the final nail in my coffin and your humble reviewer would end up in a straight jacket on the way to the mental asylum before you could blink.No joke.So obviously these books are amazing, I can't stop reading them, which is why this stops here and I'm off to my next book. Cheerio! :D

    4.5 Stars!I'll be honest, after the SOUL CRUSHING END TO STORM SIREN, I was more than a little bit scared to read this one. And rightly so. Siren's Fury picks up where Storm Siren ends--actually, a few minutes prior, and we get to experience the RIP YOUR HEART OUT AND SERVE IT TO YOU ON A SILVER PLATTER FEELING ALL OVER AGAIN THANK SO MUCH FOR THAT, MARY WEBER.It's cool though. As with book one, this story is fast-paced, action packed and stuffed full of good things. Magical, healing and romantical things. Nym's journey is not easy by any means, but she continues to grow and change, discovering more about herself, her friends, and what true love--REAL love--is. FANTASTIC sequel. I can't wait for the final book! Read it.
