Sirensong by Jenna Black


        
Sirensong
(Faeriewalker #3)
by Jenna Black

Summary from Goodreads:

"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?"

Rating:

Hmm… it’s kind of hard for me to say what I feel about this book so forgive me for any confusion you might feel while reading this review. 

At the start of this series, I already liked Dana. I love how funny her voice and thoughts are, she never fails to crack me up then and now with Sirensong. I also like how the Ethan and Keane grew as characters in this series and I saw how much they cared about Dana. Even Kimber who seemed to be a little insignificant at times is still a likeable character. I have come to love the characters in this series very much and it pains me to say goodbye to them. 

So yes, Sirensong is the last book of the Faeriewalker series (I think). I enjoyed reading this book the same way I enjoyed reading the first two books. However I will admit that I expected more from the final instalment. It was a good ending, but I felt like it didn’t go out with a bang. It was a good adventure and all but there wasn’t much of a surprise. 

If you’ve read the second book, we already know that Dana is no ordinary Faeriewalker. She’s more powerful than anyone ever thought, and so she gets to use her skill here but it’s not like you’d think she wouldn’t since she already has used it once in Shadowspell, it didn’t feel as astonishing as it did then. 

Nonetheless, I know that this series has been such a memorable experience for me and I relished reading each page I turned until the end of Sirensong.
