REVIEW: SIRENSONG (Faeriwalker #3) by Jenna Black
SYNOPSIS from Goodreads
Faeries interest me. Especially new twists on the faery world. The Faeriwalker series puts just enough of a twist on the standard "faery world" to really stand out without over reaching and becoming bogged down. Dana is a Faeriwalker, a half-human half-fae that can bring magic into the mortal world and mortal technology into the fae world. This is an extremely rare gift and one that plays a vital role in the third installment of this series.
I really like sequels when they jump right into the action/important events instead of completely rehashing everything that happened in the previous books. I'm kind of a snob about series. I believe you should read a series IN ORDER. Sorry if that offends some of you, but I warned you, I'm a series snob. SIRENSONG provides just enough rehash to spark the memory of previous events, and does this while getting the new events started right away. No time wasted. This pleases me!
Dana's first visit to faery is not pleasant to say the least. But with her friends surrounding her she really begins to develop. I love that she really begins to open up to her friends, no matter how much it terrifies her. After all, she's never had friends before. And the relationships that developed and change in SIRENSONG are fabulous. I cannot wait to see where Jenna Black takes them. I was also happy to see the Erlking back. I really like him, even though he always has ulterior motives. I'm really hoping to see A LOT more of him in the future.
I feel like there was a lot more action than in the previous books, which kept things fast paced and interesting. And finally getting a glimpse into Faery was cool too. It's not quite what I was expecting. All in all, I really enjoyed SIRENSONG, and cannot wait for book 4.
