The Siren's Son by Helen Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
***I voluntarily reviewed this book for Katsindiebookblog, and I gained no monetary incentives nor was I specifically requested to review the book.*** I’ve always been a fan of Helen and this book just makes my obsession even more! You get a great new look in Mythology into today’s world. This story is about the romance of Alec, 1 of 4 of a set of brothers that are Sirens, and Eilidh (Ellie). Ellie just comes upon her own magic and she needs to learn how to control it. Alec does everything he can to protect Ellie, even though he knows he should leave her side. She is forbidden to him yet he is so drawn to her. Duty however calls to him and his brothers to protect any that are in the sights of the Gods.
This book is written really well, the characters come together really well, it’s just the perfect amount of everything you want in a book. It’s not over dramatic, spaced out carefully, and not over written. You couldn’t ask for a better story to read.
