My review:

This book starts out with Nymia, elemental savior of Faelen,  and Eogan King of Bron making their Exit from the Terrene kingdom of Tulla after expelling Draewulf from Eogans body in Siren’s Fury. They head to Cashlin to seek aid from Queen Laiha and hopefully convince her to help them rescue  her daughter, Princess Rasha from Draewulfs clutches and ultimately get rid of Draewulf for good.

Two of the major issues that I had with this book were:

One: I kind of feel like the author just ran out of ideas or she originally meant for this to be a two book series. Myles (once again) has to decide whether he is going to be evil or help save the world. Draewulf is (once again) able to slip into their midst without being caught by hiding inside someone they trust. Nymia almost dies for good, Eogan almost dies (Thrice, though we only see one of these instances… two of them we don’t actually know how this comes about we just hear about it later)… and last but not least the day is saved at the last possible moment when you think defeat is almost certain.

Two: Nymia can’t really conquer anything by herself, and the one somewhat major fight that she gets in with a subset of the wraith army, Nymia ends up being rescued by Eogan.

On the plus side, Myles, Princess Rasha, Nymia, Eogan and everyone who doesn’t die during the final battle gets their happily ever after and we know this time Draewulf is gone for good.

Overall it wasn’t a bad book to read I was just hoping for a little more….something.

Description:

“The realization hits: We’re not going to win. It’s why I couldn’t defeat Draewulf in Bron—because this power was never mine anyway. I drop my arms and let the energy die off. And turn around to Face Eogan.”

After a fierce battle with Draewulf, Nym barely escaped with her life. Now, fleeing the scorched landscape of Tulla, her storm-summoning abilities are returning; only . . . the dark power is still inside her.

Broken and bloodied, Nym needs time to recover, but when the full scope of the shapeshifter’s horrific plot is revealed, the strong-willed Elemental must race across the Hidden Lands and warn the other kingdoms before Draewulf ’s final attack.

From the crystalline palaces of Cashlin to the legendary Valley of Origin, Nym scrambles to gather an army. But even if she can, will she be able to uncover the secret to defeating Draewulf that has eluded her people for generations? With a legion of monsters approaching, and the Hidden Lands standing on the brink of destruction, the stage is set for a battle that will decide the fate of the world.

This time, will the Siren’s Song have the power to save it?
