One of the many woes of a reader is waiting for book releases, especially when it’s a series and the first one left off with a cliffhanger. Talk about long months! But we’re finally here and with Siren’s Fury, the second in the Storm Siren Trilogy, the thrilling adventures of Nym continue.
Nym risked her life to save Faelen, her homeland, from a losing war, only to discover that the shapeshifter Draewulf has stolen everything she holds dear. But when the repulsive monster robs Nym of her storm-summoning abilities as well, the beautiful Elemental realizes her war is only just beginning.
Now powerless to control the elements that once emboldened her, Nym stows away on an airship traveling to the metallic kingdom of Bron. She must stop Draewulf. But the horrors he’s brought to life and the secrets of Bron are more than Nym bargained for. Then the disturbing Lord Myles tempts her with new powers that could destroy the monster, and Nym must decide whether she can compromise in the name of good even if it costs her very soul.
As she navigates the stark industrial cityscape of Bron, Nym is faced with an impossible choice: change the future with one slice of a blade . . . or sacrifice the entire kingdom for the one thing her heart just can’t let go.
While not as action packed as the first, I thought this was still an enjoyable read. Each action and decision builds up for the ending – one that makes you wish you had book three in your hands. I would say this book deals a lot with Nym and the struggle of what she’ll do in order to save those she loves. There were times when I found myself saying “Nym, what are you thinking?!”
But as it all comes together, learning more about Draewulf, the story of the powers Nym took, to each character’s role in the battle against good and evil…this is setting up for one epic conclusion to the trilogy!
If you enjoy the fantasy genre or YA (although, this is a great story for adults too), be sure to check out Siren’s Fury.
What’s one of you favorite trilogies?
