Summary

"I thrust my hand toward the sky as my voice begs the Elemental inside me to waken and rise. But it's no use. The curse I've spent my entire life abhorring—the thing I trained so hard to control—no longer exists."

Nym has saved Faelen only to discover that Draewulf stole everything she valued. Now he’s destroyed her Elemental storm-summoning ability as well.

When Nym sneaks off with a host of delegates to Bron, Lord Myles offers her the chance for a new kind of power and the whispered hope that it may do more than simply defeat the monster she loathes. But the secrets the Bron people have kept concealed, along with the horrors Draewulf has developed, may require more than simply harnessing a darker ability.

They may require who she is.

Set against the stark metallic backdrop of the Bron kingdom, Nym is faced with the chance to change the future.

Or was that Draewulf’s plan for her all along?

My Review

SIREN'S FURY was full of more Nym snark, danger, deception, magic, and friendships forged in the first book in this series. The ending was especially intense and full of hard choices as these characters faced some difficult circumstances. A good transition before the final battle to come in book three.

So, the first half of this book was slow for me. It was a lot of circling around and Nym not following what Eogen or Rasha, both of whom she should trust, tell her to do. She also doesn't always act as I would think under the circumstances, but is rather dramatic. Having said all that, there were parts that were so heartbreaking. Then the last half picks up and I was back in the story and in for the intense ride all the way to the end. It was worth it for me to keep going and find out what secrets would be divulged and what would happen next. Now I just need to know what will happen next in book three.

I really loved this part:
...who we are is not our abilities. Not really. It's more who we are in spite of them. Like Kel said, "Maybe it's more the choice in how we use them. Not everything that seems weaker is."

Content: Some violence, but clean.
