Note: While this review will attempt to be spoiler free, it will make some references to the previous book in the series.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have the ability to control the weather? Storm from X-men was always my favorite; she just seemed to have the ultimate power. Plus, that white hair was so badass.

Well here we meet Nymia, or Nym, a being with the ability to control storms. Even though she has all of this power, she has no control. Tragedy has followed her everywhere. She has been battered from a life of slavery and loss. I adore Nym, her past has damaged her, but she remains loyal and brave despite the near constant ways the world tries to break her down. She is reeling from the events that occurred in Storm Siren, where her world was tipped upside down. Unfortunately, for this brave but fragile woman, it’s not going to get easier in Siren’s Fury.

We uncover many ancient secrets in this book, make some new friends, and Nym finds strength in herself that she never saw. Nym is plunged into a war in an attempt to save the man that she loves. Eogan is in mortal danger, and Nym has no idea how to help. She simply dives head first into any possibility that might help, even if it dooms her soul. I adored Eogan, and I think that their romance is one of the sweetest stories I’ve read in a while.

I cannot say enough amazing things about the world-building in this series. The world feels vast and ancient with hundreds of secrets. The world has been divided since ancient times into several nations, each with their own race of magic users. Some nations have raised their magic users up to be their royalty, while others have exterminated them in fear. In Siren’s Fury, we see a shift in the power structure with magic users and normals alike uniting together to fight an ancient evil foe.

The characters were so deep you aren’t quite sure if you should trust them or not. The friends, and not quite friends, that she makes during this journey are fascinating individuals. The intrigue into who she can trust is one of the main themes in this book. The thrill is captivating and the action intense. I don’t want to tell you too much about the Big Bad in this book (and oh, is it a good one) because it will give away one of the secrets. I will tell you that this book is full of character building as Nym tries to define who she is and why she should fight for the world when the world wasn’t kind to her.

Siren’s Fury one of those epic stories that stay with you long after you’ve read the last page. The creativity for this book is off the charts. I truly had no idea how this book (or the trilogy) was going to end, but I know there will be much mayhem, love, friendships, and potential betrayals. I cannot wait to find out.
