Better to know the ending than not knowing. See all 4 questions about Sirensong…. Lists with This Book. I gave this book five four stars, so clearly I liked it. But that's not going to mean I don't have a few itches to scratch. Always showing some kind of interest for our heroine. That's just entirely believable not. He isn't I gave this book five four stars, so clearly I liked it. He isn't liked by anyone and from the start he gave off a distinct bad-guy vibe.
And what do you know, in the end he is the bad guy. This is not consistent with his character as previously described. Looks like the author found herself in an impasse and didn't know how to come aut of it. So she decided to dispatch the overabundant guy to the remaining girl. Is it just me or does this solution lack a little finesse?

I mean, wow, introduce a new character, leave no time for any character development, aside from stating that he is unpleasant and then reveal he's evil.
I understand that sometimes the bad guy is the bad guy, but the least you can do is give him a character Iago from Othello anyone? I rushed through most parts and it seems the esteemed author did too. I won't deny that some of it was well written.

I enjoyed the detail. But in the end, it boils down to the fact that the book was written as if there were wild stags on the author's tail anyone get the Erlking reference here? It was like she was desperate to finish the book and so she ended everyone's problems with a flick of her wand like her fairies now I'm just being annoying. Everyone knows these fairies are too snobby cool to use wands.
Even the epilogue was half-hearted. All in all, the book was written like a last minute, hastily written term paper. It had the potential to be a good book, but somehow ended up Jenna Black is a good writer, but this book was, sadly, a disappointment. Feb 11, Kayla rated it liked it.
I really enjoyed this book but I didn't like the way it ended, that was really because I shipped something else and it wasn't endgame. But the book wasn't just about romance so I agree with the authors descion to end the series in this way. I was hooked on the Faeriewalkers series when I finished Glimmerglass a couple months ago.
I loved the story and waited anxiously for the people who checked out the sequels at the library to hurry up and return them. But Sirensong , compared to the other two books, was just not good. The characters didn't do anything out of the ordinary so I grew bored of them, and same for the plot. The parts that weren't predictable still weren't very unnerving. That was more like an "oh" moment rather than a "whoa" moment. And the action scenes aren't very action-y. But I'm being messy, so I'll take this one step at a time. Like the first two books, I have mixed feelings about Dana.
She's strong-willed and can be smart. She isn't too naive and can take care of herself.
But I don't know, maybe it's just the dialogue. Some of the things this girl says and thinks just screams 'bratty' and 'childish'. I get the feeling that she's supposed to be this Rose Hathaway-esque Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead kind of character, but she falls much too short. The Hunt thing changed him, and he won't ever be the same. But like I said in my Shadowspell review, I still think he wouldn't have changed without that experience, even if he really did care about Dana.
I don't hate Kimber, but I don't find anything in particular to like about her either. Except maybe the hot posset; I thought that was a really useless and quirky in a good way idea. I still love Keane. He's edgy but he's mature and he's smart. I really wish we got to know more about him though. We never even got through the first layer of his bad boy exterior. But even with the little knowledge of him, I found him to have the most personality out of all the characters. He's also the most fey. The Erlking was as manipulative as ever in this book, and I loved that.
He just makes things a lot more fun. Still wondering why his name is Arawn instead of Oberon, but whatever. The romance in this book is kind of Obviously, Ethan and Dana have something I just have no idea what that something is. What does this beautiful fey boy see in this five foot half-human? And would this half-human still be attracted to this beautiful fey boy if he were as ugly as a troll? Also, I saw that KeanexKimber thing coming from book one, but it still seemed so I don't see anything between these characters.
Why does Ethan like Dana? Why does Dana like Ethan? Why does Keane like Dana? Why does Dana not like Keane? Why does Keane like Kimber? Geez, this guy is fickle. Why does Kimber like Keane? The relationships in this book seem like normal 21st century relationships. They do care about each other but how long will that last? Because in YA books they last forever. And I really wished Dana would have had to live a life of celibacy. It would have stressed that not everything is about sex; that true love doesn't need it! Did Ethan really need it?
Now I am going to rant about something that It really saw as a problem in this book: Dana's reactions to physical pain.
I swear this girl has a body made of steel because she deals with pain just fine actually. There are countless times in the book when Dana gets severely injured and "it took all I [Dana] had not to scream. And when she got stabbed by the inch-long thorns all over her body, of course it didn't effect her afterwards. I mean, it's not like she suffered severe blood loss or anything. And now my opinion on the cover. My first thought was: Gosh, this whole time I'd picturing Alexandra Daddario and I swear it's her! Dana's not supposed to be that pretty. That's Kimber if anyone.
View all 3 comments. Jul 20, Shanan rated it really liked it Shelves: Review of Faeriewalker Series collectively. Since I read Glimmerglass for the first time, I have been enchanted by this series. I loved the magical world that Jenna Black created. I loved the characters, the adventure, even the love stories. I marvel that Jenna Black was able to fit this message into this series without it feeling preachy or moral-driven. It is fun and it is magical. Sirensong seems to be the end of the series, and I have to say I will miss these characters.
However, as I looked back on the series after I finished Sirensong, it was not the magic, the faeries, Avalon, or even the love stories that stood out to me. I do not want to insinuate that Jenna Black wrote this series with the primary intent of presenting a message about alcoholism, but I do want to commend her on handling this issue the way she did. Is the best solution to sacrifice yourself? However, as I looked at this question within the context of this story and the character of Dana, I realized for Dana the solutions in the book were the best.
Dana was a product of her childhood which was filled with loneliness caused by constant moves and shame caused by hiding the secret of an alcoholic mother. It affected the choices that Dana made. It affected how she related to people. It affected how Dana valued the first set of friends she had in her life. I liked the character of Dana, so it was sometimes hard to watch her make the decisions she did; to repeatedly risk her own life and happiness to save another. But that was who Dana was and her decisions showed how devoted she was to the people in her life. I would hope that with support Dana would learn her own value so she did not feel she should allows sacrifice herself for another.
The one issue I had with the series is that the girls seemed to be very critical of themselves, while the boys were presented as near perfect. Kimber, who is an academic genius, can only focus on her mediocre magical skills. Dana, who is a wonderful singer, always feels unattractive compared to the magically attractive full-blooded Fae that surround her.
However, Ethan, whose temper is part of why he ends up in the Wild Hunt, knows he is magically gifted and thinks he is almost invincible. Keane, who harbors a lot of resentment about—well everything, has declined his calling as a knight. The standard of a successful girl with high self-esteem seems to be much harder to reach than the standard for the boys.
Overall, I loved the series though. The magical spell that Jenna Black casts took me in and despite the seemingly unending danger, I wish I could visit Avalon and bring Dana some coffee. Mar 29, Melissa-Jane rated it it was ok. A lot of things bugged me during the reading of this book, but I'll only name a few. I got really sick of the repetitiveness of issues, such as 'I can never have sex with Ethan and it's oh so hard' or not hard at all..
It wasn't the fact that it was an issue that bothered me, it was more the fact that the same thing was being said over and over again. It was similar with Dana and her mother's alcohol problem. As soon as anything at all was mentioned to do with alcoh A lot of things bugged me during the reading of this book, but I'll only name a few. As soon as anything at all was mentioned to do with alcohol I felt like, 'oh great here we go again with another description of how Dana's Mum is an alcoholic who is in denial! I understand what the author was trying to do, in that she was attempting to make the issues Dana was experiencing deeper, but in my opinion it didn't work and it didn't feel as though the story flowed naturally.
I also had a problem with the inappropriateness of the intimacy between Ethan and Dana, particularly when they were stuck in a hole right next to Kimber and Keane. It was just plain wrong and it made me cringe. The Erlking is another thing that really doesn't seem right. He is supposed to be some big evil tough guy, yet all evidence points to the contrary and yeah sure he is supposedly some weird creepy guy who takes the virginity from girls to steal their power but realistically there is no evidence to suggest that he actually does this.
His actual voice and character just doesn't seem to match the person that he is supposed to be - but hey perhaps there is some kind of weird mysterious twist for the next book that will make it all alright! Overall I have to say that unfortunately the voice of Dana just really seemed to bug me in this one. Mar 02, Kathy Kindle-aholic rated it really liked it Shelves: I'm trying to be vague, but don't want to be spoilery!
We get to see Faerie, there is lots of courtly intrigue, some romance, a lot of running, and all of Dana's secrets come out. I'm glad that the love triangle never played out. Everything is also not roses there either - Dana is unsure about her future with Ethan and I find that very realistic for [If you haven't read books 1 and 2, don't read this review! Everything is also not roses there either - Dana is unsure about her future with Ethan and I find that very realistic for a teen, especially one with Dana's past. I liked the interactions with the Wild Hunt, too. Throughout the trilogy, she's been trying to save everyone - herself included.
Dana has to face some hard facts in this one. She also has a lot of trust issues, stemming from growing up with an alcoholic mom. Book 1 starts with Dana running away to find her father to escape living with her mother, and in the hope that this act would shock her mother into admitting she has a problem. I really liked how the story came full circle. It is not all wrapped up in a little bow, but Dana has grown from her experiences. She's also sill a teenager - her life is not decided yet. She has learned that there are people that she can depend on, and that's one of the best parts of the book.
Nov 17, Princess Bookie rated it it was amazing Shelves: We are once again back with Dana and her gang of family and friends. Dana has been living with her father in Avalon for a while now and there is never a dull moment. Dana and her father attend a party hosted by Prince Henry and he invites them on a trip to see the Queen.
Invite is a strong word, they have go to otherwise it's disrespectful and could start a fight. Dana insists to her father that she be escorted by her friends Ethan and his sister Kimber. Her father lets them come but My Thoughts: Her father lets them come but is a little unsure of it, but he figures Ethan can also watch her back and protect her. Of course Finn and his son Keane are also coming. I loved how much we see of her friends in this novel. I loved how her relationship with Ethan is growing and Keane is also around more.
I still want to see more of Keane! But even though we know he had a crush on Dana, he is now focusing his attention more on Kimber. They start on their journey and figure they will be save with Henry's entourage since nobody would dare attack them! Of course things do not go as planned and they do get attacked. We also realize that Erlking is still around and is following Dana. Erlking is a mysterious character.
We know that he looks out for himself and if its in his best interest, he'll do it. But he protects Dana a lot more than he has too. He kind of feels an allegiance to her I suppose. Even though we're supposed to fear him and loathe him, I always find myself liking him and his sense of humor.
He makes things more interesting. We also see more of Dana's brother who is in the Wild Hunt. Once, they all get to the Queen's there is an attack and Dana is the one whose at blame since she's the only one who can carry technology in. So they all run, even though she's innocent. They are on the run with nowhere to go! How did the technology get in? What happens when Erlking decides he wants Dana to himself and sends Ethan after her?
Will the romance ever go further with Ethan because once Dana gives her virginity up, since Erlking can step in and own her power? Is it worth it? Does Dana become a better fighter? Does she live or die? Read the book now! I think I loved this one more than the first two. The trip to the Queen's was interesting. They are on the move a lot so lots of things happen.
She sees weird things she's never seen before. When Dana is wanted by the Queen, she is quite brave and does anything she has to in order to survive. We also see her powers developing more and realize just what she can do! I loved Sirensong, I hope you do too! I also love how she is leaning down on her hands. What I'd Give It: Jan 05, Rachel rated it it was amazing Shelves: With both Queens of Faerie trying to kill her, she never thought her father would accept an invitation to visit Queen Titania of the Seelie Court.
Being presented at Court is supposed to be an honor, but when you are a Faeriewalker, like she is, the reason for the invitation is definitely suspect. And although they were promised safe passage and an escort, including Prince Henry himself and his Knights, traveling through Faerie is not likely to be as easy as everyone seems to believe. But when a surprise attack nearly costs Dana her life and the life of her friends, the feeling of foreboding she has gets stronger.
And she thought things in Avalon were complicated. The story picks up just shortly after everything that transpired with the Erlking and the Wild Hunt in Shadowspell. Dana is still living in her safe house, continuing to train with Keane and trying to figure out a way out of the bargain she made with the Erlking.
As she heads off to Faerie with her father and her friends, Dana is still keeping secrets about just what happened with the Erlking, secrets that may put more than just her friendships on the line. Sirensong is a bewitching story of Faerie magic, heroism, bravery, love and friendship. As Dana tries to navigate the complex landscape of Faerie, she learns more about the power of honesty, about who she is, what she is capable of, and the importance of friendship. Jenna Black has written yet another charming and completely captivating story in the series.
There are a few surprises, someone new to keep an eye on, and a slightly darker turn for one of the character. And although this installment may not have quite as steamy a scene as there was in Shadowspell, there is just as much tension and a few heart-racing moments that will entice. This book is a must read for fans of the series and for readers who enjoy an enchanting adventure through the magical world of Faerie, with a bit of a mystery to piece together, a few ulterior motives to uncover, and a heroine who is brave, incredibly determined, and who has some pretty cool powers.
On a personal note: This series is such a yummy distraction from reality. And this one is definitely an adventure. Finally Dana gets to go into Faerie. Once Dana arrived in Faerie I was not able to put the book down. And between her practice fights with Keane and how Ethan dealt with his jealousy, there were some seriously entertaining and laugh out loud moments. I still love Dana, but the flawed half-mortal that she is, is really no competition for the age-old leader of the Wild Hunt. Dana is still lovable, with her sarcasm, lack of interest in all things girlie, and her tough and determined streak.
I still think there are more adventures to be had with more story left to tell, I just hope the author does too. Jan 13, Shera Book Whispers rated it liked it Shelves: The love square comes to an end!! Nothing brings me more pleasure when a painful love triangle comes to end, or so I thought.
It brings me greater pleasure when a terrible love square ends!! It is a great thing for this series since I love it so much. As a team Keane fan, I think I can speak for us all when I say he went to a better love interest. In The love square comes to an end!! The role of the Erkling really gets confusing in Sirensong. His actions are still pretty self serving, but he does things that make you wonder about him. The magic of the fairy realm also gets explored, though it stays firmly within the Seelie Court.
You know lots of forests, house made to blend in, the vegetation is commanded to move and do what they want, and the Seelie court is a towering fortress. However, author Jenna Black states Sirensong is the last entry. Kana thinks a lot about sex, a lot. Dana has a few make out scenes and she walks in on someone s clearly just finishing up with a bedroom scene.
Original review at Book Whispers. Apr 09, Khanh, first of her name, mother of bunnies rated it liked it Shelves: I think this book has been the best out of the Faeriewalker series. But considering I gave it 3 stars, that doesn't exactly speak well of the books, now, does it? This series has been one of the rare ones in which I've found the good guys male and female alike to be largely whiny, adolescent, and altogether annoying, and the bad guys tend to be caricatures. With the exception of the Erlking, the bad guys tend to be purely evil, with no redeeming qualities that would make them seem Take Henry in this book oh, and Elizabeth?
Could you possibly be any more obvious with the naming, Ms. It may be possible that I read too many Regencies, but I picture him as a foppish Beau Brummel type, with a pencil-on beauty mark and white powdered face, and he's written as such a jerk that really, it doesn't take a brain bigger than that of a goldfish to figure out who's behind the big mystery here. And the guys, ugh, it got so bad that I'd rather date Dana's dad out of all the other options in the book.
I mean, he's a bit stiff, but he's immortal, and Fae, so looks and age are not a factor here. Plus, he's mature, responsible, and he's had a few millennia to tame all that alpha male testonerone that Keane and Ethan can't keep under control. Good god, those two. I just want them to go at it and KO each other out already; they're intolerable enough by themselves, throw them in with each other and the f-s fists and f-cks just fly all over the damn place.
Just kill each other and be done with it. Kimber--I HATE that name, by the way, it reminds me of an overtly cheerful yoga intructionist that I just want to punch in the face when she's chirping at me to lift my ass higher as my muscles scream in protest, which actually isn't too far off from the character of Kimber herself.
Most annoying friend ever. I actually don't hate Dana as much now that I think of it. Surrounded by all these terrible people, she cannot be blamed for her lack of intellectual and rational skill development. The alcoholic mother is the least of her problems. Oct 18, Sam rated it it was amazing Shelves: Read this yesterday and dying to get it out of my system!! SO I loved this, it was unexpected and some funny bits. I'm glad the character's personalities didn't change throughout the series.
I did feel kind of jealous when I was reading the whole 'Kimber and Keane' thing. I don't know how to think of his hair: Does he have curtains? Or is it parted at the side? Or all different lengths? Why couldn't he have had n Read this yesterday and dying to get it out of my system!! Why couldn't he have had nice shortish blond hair that fell into his eyes and made him look sexy?
But NO, he had to have horrible long hair that probably makes him look like a pirate! Now that's out of the way. The book had a nice plot and I found my self enjoying their adventure through Faerie. There was some pretty good tension and some quality action which I loved.
I thought the book ended quite well. It didn't follow the 'And they all lived happily ever after' thing but I did kind of expect it to end: Ethan and Dana do what they do, Dana's Mum quits drinking, everybody is friends, etc. But it was nice to see that Jenna Black was being realistic! Hope to read her books in the future!! Jul 04, Anne rated it it was ok Shelves: All of the books in this series are ok , and this one is no different.
In other words, I'm glad I checked this out from the library instead of paying for it. I've read that there are no more book planned in this series anytime soon not sure how true that is , and I can honestly say that it's probably for the best. Sirensong just had a stagnant feel to it, especially with character development. It also felt like the different love interests were being quickly paired off so everything 2.
It also felt like the different love interests were being quickly paired off so everything could be tidy when it was put to bed I couldn't bring myself to care who was with whom.

In response to that, let's just say that I am not happy! I thought Sirensong was an arresting novel from start to end. The only reason I was able to stop before I hit page was because 1.

The real Nate was viciously murdered, but thanks to groundbreaking human replication technology, a duplicate was created that holds all the personality and memories of the original.
Nate and his best friend, Nadia Lake, may have solved the mystery of his death, but they've discovered an even greater threat. The original Nate knew a secret that could change everything. A secret so big that the most powerful people in their state would kill to protect it. With the threat of death constantly hovering over their heads, and the powers that be--including Nate's father--doing everything possible to tear them apart, Nate and Nadia turn to an underground resistance for help.
But not everything is as it seems. And they will need all their strength to combat the corruption they have discovered at their state's heart. She lives a life of privilege even if she has to put up with paparazzi tracking her every move, every detail of her private life tabloid fodder. But her future is assured, as long as she can maintain her flawless public image—no easy feat when your betrothed is a notorious playboy. Nathaniel Hayes is the heir to the company that pioneered human replication: Together, Nadia and Nate must discover what really happened without revealing the secrets that those who run their world would kill to protect.
Dana is finally getting comfortable with her life as the only Faeriewalker in Avalon. Enter Althea - the teenage daughter of Mab, the Unseelie Queen. Dana knows from the moment she sets eyes on the wannabe Goth chick that Al is trouble, but she finds herself drawn to the wounded soul she glimpses beneath the Faerie glamour. When Al asks Dana to take her into the mortal world to visit the human boyfriend her mother has driven away, Dana refuses, knowing that Queen Mab would hold her personally responsible if anything happened to her daughter.
And if not, just how far is Al willing to go to get her own way?
There are free Kindle and Nook apps for both your computer and your smart phone. 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. And will she save her father before he pays the ultimate price in her stead?
On top of spending most of her time in a bunkerlike safe house and having her dates hijacked by a formidable Fae bodyguard, Faeriewalker Dana Hathaway is in for some more bad news: With his homicidal appetite and immortal powers, the Erlking has long been the nightmare of the Fae realm. A fragile treaty with the Faerie Queen, sealed with a mysterious spell, is the one thing that keeps him from hunting unchecked in Avalon, the only place on Earth where humans and Fae live together.
Be prepared to stay up late finishing this one. The story of Dana Hathaway, a girl torn between real-world problems and other-worldly peril is a darkly compelling page-turner shot through with flashes of wit, romance, and adventure. Dana Hathaway doesn't know it yet, but she's in big trouble.
But from the moment Dana sets foot in Avalon, everything goes wrong, for it turns out she isn't just an ordinary teenage girl—she's a Faeriewalker, a rare individual who can travel between both worlds, and the only person who can bring magic into the human world and technology into Faerie.
Soon, Dana finds herself tangled up in a cutthroat game of Fae politics. Website design by Web Crafters.
