Review: Sirensong

Sirensong by Jenna Black
Series: Faeriewalker #3
Published by St. Martin's Press
Genre: YA
$9.99 (US paperback)
312 pages

What it's about:
When Dana is invited to Faerie to be officially presented at the Seelie Court, it’s no easy decision. After all, everyone knows Titania, the Seelie Queen, wants her dead. But Titania claims not to be the one behind the death threats; and her son, Prince Henry, makes the decision a whole lot easier when he suggests Dana might be arrested for (supposedly) conspiring with her aunt Grace to usurp the Seelie throne. So she and her father better do as they're told . . .

The journey through Faerie is long—and treacherous. Dana thought it would be a good idea to have friends along, but her sort-of-boyfriend, Ethan, and her bodyguard’s son, Keane, just can’t seem to get along, and Kimber’s crush on Keane isn’t making things any easier. When a violent attack separates Dana from their caravan, the sexy Erlking saves her just in the nick of time . . . and makes it clear that he hasn’t given up on making her his own.

Arriving at Titania’s beautiful palace should be a relief. But Dana is soon implicated in an assassination attempt against Titania’s granddaughter, and is suddenly a fugitive, forced to leave her father behind as she and her friends flee for their lives. Will she be able to prove her innocence before the forces of the Seelie Court—or, worse, the Erlking—catch up with her? And will she save her father before he pays the ultimate price in her stead?

My thoughts:
This was the third (and final? I'm not sure) book in the Faeriewalker series by Jenna Black. I was really excited for this book and while it didn't disappoint, it didn't really satisfy either.

The reason why I'm not sure if this is the final book in the series or not is because it just sort of...ends. It starts out pretty slow and then right at the end it picks up really fast and is getting really exciting, then all the sudden, it's over. The epilogue was pretty vague as well. I would have liked to see more to the ending of this story. A little more action and conflict would have been nice.

What I liked a lot about the book is how bad ass Dana became. It took her awhile, but it came. I was hoping her character would grow a little more and she sort of did. None of the other characters really had much attention in this book. It was all about Dana. Having a little more of the other characters play a bigger part would have been nice as well.

There really isn't a whole lot to say about this book. If you've read the first two, you should read this one. It was worth the read, but it just wasn't fantastic. I would have liked to see it stretched a little farther. I'm still hoping for a 4th book but I really don't see that happening.

My rating: 8/10

I love getting comments! I'm always checking to see if I have any new comments. It's actually pretty sad how often I check for them really. So if there is anything you want to say about a post of mine, please say it! I want feedback :)

As of lately, I'm making the blog a no-award blog. I love getting them and I'm always honored, but I don't have the time to do all the things that are required of them. Sorry :(
Also, my "reply" button does not seem to be working in my comments on my computer. I have to use a different computer to reply back so if I don't reply, it's not because I'm rude, it's just that I can't.
