Goodreads Synopsis:

Death would have been easier, but the Siren wasn’t through with her. 

Seventeen-year-old Maggie Trent fell out of a battle and into the Siren’s Realm, a land where secrets hide in the shadows and pleasure comes at a price Maggie is unwilling to pay. 

The time for the Siren’s reckoning has come, sweeping away all she deems unworthy to live in her realm. Those without magic are hunted by the Siren. Those with magic are hunted by the Stricken. Fighting or hiding seem necessary to survive. But there is a different way.

Bertrand Wayland, unaging and unrelenting in his determination for Maggie to accept her fate, slips in and out through the stitches that bind the Siren’s Realm to other worlds, gaining magic and having glorious adventures. When Maggie follows Bertrand out of the Siren’s Realm, seeking an adventure of her own, she finds instead a world of magic on the eve of war. To save innocent lives Maggie risks her heart, her life, and her only chance of returning to the Siren’s Realm.

Book Review:
Pre-reading Thoughts:

I can't wait to jump into this book. From the reviews, it seems like this is going to be one book that I cannot put down!

Thank you to Xpresso Book Tours for providing me with a copy for this book! I cannot wait to jump into this book. Just a small little disclaimer for those reading this review. I have received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. Please note that this does not affect my opinion in any way. All thoughts are my own.

Writing Thoughts:

O'Russell's writing is easy to get into and it's addictive. I loved the way she describes everything. The dialogue was simple and natural. I loved how clearly you could hear the author's voice in this book.

Plot Thoughts:

I adored the plot. We start in the middle of nowhere and slowly work our way into the action and plot changing moments. I loved the idea of paradise with a little bit of a twist. The plot was definitely the main element that kept me attached to this book. I just wanted to find out what was next.

Character Thoughts:

I liked the characters in this book but felt like they could use some developing. They weren't unsubstantiated but they seemed to lack some dimension here and there. Other than that, I really liked Maggie she was focused and determined.

Final Thoughts:

Overall, I enjoyed this book. The writing and the plot just pulled me right into the story. I liked the characters but thought that they required a little more dimension in some areas. Other than that, I loved it. It is perfect for people who love fantasy or want to get into the genre. I cannot wait to see what happens in the next book. Thank you so much to Xpresso Book Tours for providing me with a copy go this book!
