From Siren’s Storm to Fury’s Fire

Author Lisa Papademetriou is BACK!

 By Amy Lignor

From the amazing mind who brought readers Siren’s Storm, this sequel will keep you reading until the very last page has been turned. Not to mention…there is a serious twist in this one that you will NOT see coming.

Transferring from a ‘wealthy’ life in Manhattan to living in an old farmhouse that her dad inherited free and clear, Gretchen is focusing on a new beginning. A lot has happened in a very short time. Her mother left the family, because she wants nothing more than money, and Gretchen has had to come back from a very terrifying event where she and Will (her best friend) defeated a frightening group called the Siren’s, even though Gretchen can’t really remember anything that happened. Right now she’s looking forward to her senior year; she’s a little nervous about attending a public school even though Will goes there and will be right by her side.

One morning she goes for a run. Skipping stones on the Sound, Gretchen suddenly watches as a water spout forms, rises up from the surface and turns into a woman whose eyes are burning with rage. Talk about frightening, although Gretchen really wants to just pawn it off as simply a picture from her overactive imagination.

Will is the one keeping secrets. You see, Will knows what Gretchen did – he witnessed her fury – and he also has to deal with the fact that a mermaid named Asia, who works for the evil Sirens, actually helped them survive the attack and has now reappeared to warn them that something new is about to happen.

Kirk is an odd character. A boy who is now living a truly tortured life, as his head is constantly filled with the Siren’s songs. He, like Will, has been witness to the evil magic that comes from Calypso and her band of Sirens. However, he also knows that a group called the Fury is about to be unleashed.

As the story moves along readers find themselves pulled into a new mystery. Possession, as well as death by Fury comes into play, and as Will and Gretchen cross the friendship line into romance, the real event that Gretchen has been blocking out starts to come to the surface. In fact, she begins to truly understand what she is and how dangerous her own power can become.

As good as the first, the author brings back the determined Gretchen and adds the spark of romance for the reader to be excited over. Asia, who’s always a mystery when it comes to the side she’s ultimately fighting for returns with the same dark cloud over her head, so that readers will once again gasp when the ending appears and the bad guy is revealed. Well done!

Until Next Time, Everybody,

Amy
