Review--Sirensong by Jenna Black

When Dana is invited to Faerie to be officially presented at the Seelie Court, deciding to go isn't easy. After all, everyone knows Titania, the Seelie Queen, wants her dead. But Titania's son, Prince Henry, makes the decision a whole lot easier when he implies that Dana could be arrested if she doesn't do as she's told... The journey through Faerie is long--and treacherous. Dana's lucky to have her father and friends along, but when a violent attack separates her 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.

After all that, arriving at Titania's beautiful palace should be a relief. But Dana is soon implicated in an assassination attempt against Titania's granddaughter, and forced to leave her father behind as she and her friends flee for their lives. Will he 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?

Jenna Black's Faeriewalker novels finally comes to a conclusion in Sirensong, and while the story ends, there's still the feeling of continuation with the characters and their world. Once again, I am delighted by this fact, even though I may never hear from Dana again about her misadventures with her friends.

Things are complicated to say the least. First she's forced to go to Faerie when it was a big ordeal that she never go. Prince Henry is a real jerk and of course there's the trouble their group gets into while traveling. There's a lot of excitement going on!

Dana's relationships with her friends are entering the danger zone. Both Keane and Ethan love her. Teenage love, sigh! (eyeroll) What makes things difficult is that this love triangle isn't so much of one since Dana doesn't really care for Keane in that way. But when she and the boys along with Kimber are on the run, the boys are having their own battle trying to win Dana's heart.

We know by now that Dana has trust issues, hers are to the point where she feel like she must always keep secrets from her friends, and this little way of life is about to nip her in the bud.

Trying to keep herself and her friends safe is going to take a lot of work. And she still has to go about proving her innocence in the attempted assassination of Titania's granddaughter, as well as trying to find the real would-be-killer.

I've enjoyed this series, yet Ethan wasn't my fave guy. I much preferred Keane and was saddened that Dana never felt anything for him. But alas I can't always win with the relationships I like in books! The Erlking is still a very interesting character as well. He's sort of like a Dracula in a sense. Not bloodsucking, but still mysterious and somewhat self-serving, yet willing to help as long as he sees an outcome to benefit himself.

The ending overall was enjoyable, like I said. I truly loved reading this series, fae books always intrigue me for I love seeing the different rules and ways the authors give their fae.

Overall rating 4.5/5 stars
