Siren's Fury (The Storm Siren Trilogy #2) by Mary Weber

Nym has saved Faelen only to discover that Draewulf stole everything she valued. Now he’s destroyed her Elemental storm-summoning ability as well.

When Nym sneaks off with a host of delegates to Bron, Lord Myles offers her the chance for a new kind of power and the whispered hope that it may do more than simply defeat the monster she loathes. But the secrets the Bron people have kept concealed, along with the horrors Draewulf has developed, may require more than simply harnessing a darker ability.

They may require who she is.

Set against the stark metallic backdrop of the Bron kingdom, Nym is faced with the chance to change the future.

Or was that Draewulf’s plan for her all along? 

After the jaw-dropping cliffhanger ending to Storm Siren I was very excited to continue Nym's story and see what she was going to do now. Siren's Fury starts by picking up that same scene and man what a way to start this second book! I was instantly intrigued and wondering how in the world Nym was going to get through this.

 Unfortunately I feel like I spent most of the book anxious to find out what was going to happen and how, instead of actually enjoying the journey to get there. Don't get me wrong the writing was beautiful just like the first book, but I somehow felt like I was just enduring reading most of the story so that we could get to the good stuff. There seemed to be a lot of waiting and repetitiveness towards the middle that just seemed to drag on. 

It actually took me quite a while to read this one. Also believe it or not Myles was actually one of my favorite characters in this story. I do always love snark and wit. But it may have also been because this time Nym is just such a downer and doesn't have all that spunk that she showed in Storm Siren. Plus two of the great characters from the first book are now dead. So they had to have someone besides Debbie-Downer to add some charm.

  Although Siren's Fury wasn't the amazing page turner I hoped it to be, the overall effect on the characters and the set up for the next book, still have me majorly pumped to read the final book and see once and for all how this is all going to go down. I would recommend this series to fans of fantasy novels with lots of action, great world building, but light on the romance. I definitely would not recommend reading Siren's Fury without first reading Storm Siren.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
