Siren's Song - The Storm Siren Book 3 - Mary Weber

My Rating
★★★★★ - You have bewitched me, body and soul. (More Info)

About the Book
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.

My Thoughts
In this, the epic conclusion of The Storm Siren Trilogy, Mary Weber has brought us the finale of a lifetime. After finishing the book only moments ago, my heart is filled with so many emotions, I'm not quite sure what to think. *PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THERE MAY BE SPOILERS AHEAD IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THE FIRST TWO BOOKS* With many of our favorite (and not so favorite) characters reappearing in this book...I have found my feelings towards some people suddenly changed. Funny how an author can do that so seamlessly.

Mary Weber has displayed her world creating super powers in an exquisite way. I love her style, her unique use of language, and the incorporation of do many "mythical" creatures/beings. Young Adult Fantasy at it's finest.  And if you look closely, there are definitely spiritual truths and lessons that we can learn from Nym and Eaogyn's story.  The darkness that tries to overtake us...the foothold it grasps if we own the door to it... the suffocating grip that evil can place on us.  But in turn, we caused how love, self  sacrificing love can release us. Free us from the sin and death that would threaten to take us down. In a sense we can see parallels to Jesus' love poured out for us as He sacrificed himself for us so that we may be free from the sin and death that would ensnare us and destroy us.

Written from the song in her heart, you can see Mary's life blood poured out on to every page. If you have been putting this series off, you need to start it right away. (You think I'm kidding.) This series is one I had put off for one reason or another, and in a way I am kind of glad I did...because I was able to read all 3 books in the last month...and that's how I recommend you do it too. These books MUST be read in order. There is so much background and setting and plot and language...that starting mid-series will just throw you off.

I received a complimentary copy of Siren's Song. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine alone.


About the Author
Mary Weber is a ridiculously uncoordinated girl plotting to take over make-believe worlds through books, handstands, and imaginary throwing knives. In her spare time, she feeds unicorns, sings 80’s hairband songs to her three muggle children, and ogles her husband who looks strikingly like Wolverine. They live in California, which is perfect for stalking L.A. bands, Joss Whedon, and the ocean.

  1. The upside of waiting on a series is that you can binge all the books. That wait can be quite the complication - and it certainly is for this series. :) Glad you enjoyed this one. I should re-read these at some point because I've a feeling this is a trilogy I missed a lot of "little things" while reading. That said, I thought this was a solid finale, and am looking forward to what Mary has in store beyond this and the 'Sofi Snow' duo. :)
