Book Review: SIRENSONG

Title: SIRENSONG
Author: Jenna Black
Other books by Author: GLIMMERGLASS and SHADOWSPELL
Publication Date: 07/05/2011
My Rating: 4/5--Really good! Worth your time.
Plot in One Word: Faeries
Good if...you want something hard to put down
When Dana is invited to Faerie to be officially presented at the Seelie Court, it’s no easy decision. After all, everyone knows Titania, the Seelie Queen, wants her dead. But Titania claims not to be the one behind the death threats; and her son, Prince Henry, makes the decision a whole lot easier when he suggests Dana might be arrested for (supposedly) conspiring with her aunt Grace to usurp the Seelie throne. So she and her father better do as they're told . . . The journey through Faerie is long—and treacherous. Dana thought it would be a good idea to have friends along, but her sort-of-boyfriend, Ethan, and her bodyguard’s son, Keane, just can’t seem to get along, and Kimber’s crush on Keane isn’t making things any easier. When a violent attack separates Dana from their caravan, the sexy Erlking saves her just in the nick of time . . . and makes it clear that he hasn’t given up on making her his own.  Arriving at Titania’s beautiful palace should be a relief. But Dana is soon implicated in an assassination attempt against Titania’s granddaughter, and is suddenly a fugitive, forced to leave her father behind as she and her friends flee for their lives. Will she be able to prove her innocence before the forces of the Seelie Court—or, worse, the Erlking—catch up with her? And will she save her father before he pays the ultimate price in her stead?

My thoughts...
There's something really captivating about Jenna Black's novels and this particular series.  Are they best novels in the world?  No.  But somehow I'm totally hooked and I've waiting for sometime to get my hands on SIRENSONG.  This is the third novel in the series and perhaps the last.  (Been trying to figure out if there will be a 4th...let me know if you know.)  The story continues following Dana and this time we get to enter the fairy world.  It was pretty cool how things played out between her and Erkling and between her and the Seelie Queen.  I suppose you'll just have to read this series to find out what I mean.  But I do promise it's very addictive.  The first novel was my least favorite of three...but two and three were very hard to put down.

I emailed Jenna Black today...and she said "at this time, there are no plans to expand the series past three books". :( But she also said "it's always possible that could change or that I could decide to write a spin-off series, but at this moment, I'm pursuing other avenuse."
