Kill Your Darlings - Yellow Team (Round 2)
Daughter of the Siren Queen - Tricia Levenseller


I'm going to play a Weapon card-Mauled By a Demon Hound (Read a book that has an animal in story) for the lovely Pirate Queen, Alosa, who is half human/half siren and for her mother, the Siren Queen. Alosa, is deadly on land as a pirate and even deadlier once she enters the ocean and turns into a beautiful Siren, creature of the sea. Her mother the Siren Queen is full siren and spends her life completely at sea, leading her fellow siren family and luring unsuspecting pirates to their watery death with her enchanting voice.

Queens of the Sea
Daughter of the Siren Queen - Tricia Levenseller

I loved this series! It was so much fun to read! It's the first time I've read a book starring Sirens so that was all new and exciting for me. I love books with pirates and ships anyways so adding the Siren spin on it along with a whole, very likeable, crew of female pirates was icing on the cake.

Hustle of the Gunman (Galaxia Pirates #4) by A.M. Halford
Hustle of the Gunman [Galaxia Pirates 4] (Siren Publishing Classic ManLove) - A.M. Halford
Hustle of the Gunman is the fourth book in the Galaxia Pirates series. In this instalment, we have the exact opposite of insta-love. Instead, Darrel has been in love with Toby for over eight years, but Toby wants nothing to do with him. Toby finally succeeds in pushing him away, only to have a change of heart and realise Darrel is who he wants after all. There are reasons for him pushing Darrel away, but nothing that is explained in too much detail. In fact, it is just skimmed over, which is a shame when it has impacted his life to such an extent. It is during a job that goes wrong that Toby realises exactly how much Darrel means to him, and is determined to show him, just so long as Darrel survives.
There were parts of this book that I loved - the longing from afar between both Toby and Darrel, and Toby's mastery of knives, for example. Unfortunately for me, it was never explained why he mastered them. What drew his interest to knives and swords, in this space age of laser guns etc? And although his upbringing was rough, why did it impact his life for so long?
This was well written, don't get me wrong. The pacing was smooth, and it was action-packed. There are moments of steam, as well as tenderness. The characters are familiar but I'm still learning new things about them with each book. I would recommend this book as I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. However, it just didn't 'push my buttons' like some of the other stories have.

My Favorite Song ~The Silver Siren~
My Favorite Song ~The Silver Siren~ - Charis Messier,Ako Tenma,Kairi Aragusuku

I decided to check out this book because it was a shojo light novel which is something I don't usually see here in the US.

When I first opened up the book, I was surprised to see there were 29 chapters. I expected each of those chapters to be long. However, they were short.

The story plays out like a typical fish out of water story which was expected since this book is the first volume in this series. Despite the predictability of the plot in this volume, I enjoyed it. I am looking forward to read future volumes.

Quick Thoughts: Siren's Call
Siren's Call - Jayne Castle

Siren's Call
by Jayne Castle
Book 12 of Harmony
-- Book 4 of Rainshadow



In the mysterious world of Harmony, there are places filled with unexplored marvels.  But Rainshadow Island isn’t about to give up its secrets…

In the alien catacombs of Rainshadow, there are creatures whose compelling songs lure the unwary to their death.  That’s why Rafe Coppersmith, hired to clear out the catacombs for exploration, needs a music talent.  He knows the perfect one, but she probably doesn’t want anything do with him...

Ella Morgan had once fallen hard and fast for Rafe, but then he disappeared for months…and he’s not about to tell her why.  Ella, too, has secrets that only her dust bunny knows.  She’s not just a music talent, she’s a Siren: a paranormal singer capable of singing men to sleep—or to their deaths.

But once on Rainshadow, Rafe and Ella will learn that surrendering to passion doesn’t come without risks—and fighting fire with fire only adds to the flame…

This book was entirely enjoyable and entirely Jayne Ann Krentz, with her usual formulaic romance, and standard great characters.  I'm not complaining, but it DOES end up becoming a tad bit forgettable when the stories are always the same, even with a new adventure, a new addition to the ongoing series' conflict, and new developments with the overall Harmony world.

For this particular installment, I DID really like the entire Siren aspect of Ella's paranormal abilities, and enjoyed the references to "Old World" mythologies, as the characters like to put it.  I like knowing what kinds of abilities our characters possess, so even if the explanations seem a bit far-fetched, it's interesting to know that Ella's musical talent also resonates with glass and can make it... melt.

Rafe's abilities were a bit confusing, although knowing that he's lost his own, original abilities and is stuck in a psi-fever was an interesting twist.

I still love the atmosphere and the creativity of Rainshadow Island, as well as the newly discovered catacombs there.  The creation of Wonderland was quite interesting--kind of like a futuristic, alien Jurassic Park, frozen in time, and completely blue.

And then, once again, I would definitely like to see more of the dust bunnies.  While the previous installment had a wonderful appearance by our dust bunnies, I feel like this one was kind of lacking.  I mean, Lorelei was great with her powdered donut obsession, and her attachment to a wedding veil with sparkly crystals.  But she didn't really get a whole lot of story other than that, to be honest.

Nonetheless, this was still a wonderfully enjoyable paranormal, romantic suspense written by a wonderful author!
