Review: Sirensong by Jenna Black

Released:  July 5, 2011
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
Rated: YA
Series: Faeriewalker, Book 3
Buy  Amazon|   Book Depository

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?

What I thought

I waited a long time to get my hands on the third book in this series. Another great addition! I'm loving this series more and more with each book. Dana is such a great character to follow. I'm never bored and am always on the edge of my seat in anticipation.

I must confess, I didn't even read the book description before buying and reading this book. It really added to the mystery of what was happening, since I didn't have the slightest idea of where the story was going. The trip into Faerie was a fantastic storyline. Things are never easy for Dana, and she gets into a lot of trouble in Faerie. What I liked most was the twists and turns, a few things I saw coming, but others! Others were a complete surprise!

Another confession, I don't really care for Ethan. I'm actually more fascinated with the Erlking. I was a bit surprised and maybe even a little disappointed with the outcome (you'll see why! I can't even hint without spoiling it). But there is promise that he is there to stay, which makes me tremendously happy.

This is definitely a favorite series for me. I get lost so easily in the story. Definitely worth reading reading more than once! Even after book three, the story is still charming and adventurous.

I loved this book too! It definitely had a lot of twists and turns :) and yes, I agree!! Ethan does not fascinate me as much as the Erkling does. Hmm, but you're hinting at another novel... I was under the impression that Jenna Black hasn't gotten approved for that yet ? ?
