Nym and Draewulf prepare to face off in a battle destined to destroy more lives than it saves.
With the loss of Tulla still fresh in mind, Rasha’s fate unknown, and Lord Myles taken over by the dark ability, Nym and the few Bron soldiers rush to warn Cashlin’s queen. Only to discover it may already be too late for the monarch and her eerie kingdom. As the Luminescents are sifting through Nym’s past memories and the queen is reading into her future, Nym is given a choice of how to defeat Draewulf, but the cost may be more than she can bear. And even then there are no guarantees.
With that reality burrowing into her bones—along with the guilt of the lives she will sacrifice—Nym returns to her homeland of Faelen to raise an army of peasants through promises of freedom. But when the few friends she has left, along with the world and citizens she loves, are staring down the face of a monster and his undead army, will Nym summon every element her blood is capable of controlling . . . or surrender to a different strength—one of sacrifice?
Because in the end, death may be more merciful for them all.
When I first discovered Mary Weber's writing with her debut novel Storm Siren, I knew I was in for something special. This series has grown in a beautiful and spectacular way, as Nym has!
Nym epitomizes a young heroine to look up to in so many ways. Strong, brave, smart, and realistically failable. She is dazzling in her inner-beauty, which makes her struggle (and eventual triumph over) with insecurities all the more heartfelt. All those little facets that truly make a remarkable heroine that we can relate to, sympathize and love!
In each book, Nym faces insurmountable odds it seems, and in each story she continues to press on, learning and growing. Since the beginning, we have watched her struggle with very human insecurities while battling the worst of evil foes, Draewulf. What a great villain, by the way. You can't help but despise him!
Siren's Song takes off after the heartrending ending of the Siren's Fury with Draewulf threatening all, Rasha in danger, and Nym rushing to warn Cashlin’s queen of Draewulf's plans. What is different, is we now have Eogan back (Yay!) alongside Nym. There are some new character developments which continue to surprise me.
This is the epic battle fans of the series have been waiting for and Weber gives her readers that and more. The tension increases as the battle between good and bad ensue. Nym struggles as the effects of the war, on those she loves and cares about, is tangible - yet, Weber writes in hope. And, for fans of the ever growing romance, readers are treated to some wonderful page time. There's still that saucy banter between the two as they continue to try to find their place with each other, and I loved each sweet moment.
Siren's Song by Mary Weber is a beautiful ending to the series and I really couldn't have asked for more. Danger, romance, magic, friendships, and empowerment - it has it all! I'll miss this series and I'm so happy to have discovered it. Highly recommended!
