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.
What an amazing world to venture into!!
Enter this book with magic in your head, understand that this is a book about magic and somethings can’t be explained, because they are magical.
Maggie slips into a new realm, where she must learn to fit in. It is here that she meets Bertrand, who takes her under his wing and tries to show her around the Siren’s Realm. Together they go on a magical adventure, that shows Bertrand who Maggie really is and Maggie, who she really is. In the world of Malina – they have slipped the rift of the Siren’s Realm and entered a new realm – they give help to The Wanderers. Again the evil Jax, who wants to destroy everything. Will they win? Or with Jax, leader of The Enlightened win? Good vs Evil?
I love the world that Megan O’Russell creates. The Siren’s Realm is amazing with all the characters, the descriptions and the colors. I felt like I was there with Maggie running the streets, trying to provide for myself. All the characters that are there are amazing too.
Bertrand is a brilliant guide for Maggie. I love that he sees everything as an adventure. Kidnapped? All part of the adventure. What really made me love him when he was glad she didn’t fall in love with him. That had me laughing so hard! He is full of himself, yet witty, unpredictable and likable. I can see why the Siren keeps him around.
Will I read the next book in the series? Of course, I will!!
