Goodreads Summary: 

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?

What I Thought:

Sirensong is an interesting conclusion to this series!  We finally get to go to Fairie and meet Titania.  Who, as it turns out, is not the one behind all of the crazy stuff that’s been happening to Dana.

What I didn’t expect was all of the stuff that happened at Seelie Court!  All of the stuff with Henry and who was really behind the assassination attempt (because we all know it’s not Dana).  Like, there’s another fairiewalker out there, which wasn’t expected at all, because I didn’t think there would be two of them!

Dana’s been such an interesting character, and after spending so much time trying to save everyone, I think she’s finally coming to the realization that she can’t save everybody…most of all, her mom.  Dana has so many issues trusting people- which is totally understandable- but I also feel like she’s headed in the right direction and starting to work them out.  I also love her friendship with Kimber and how her relationship with her dad changed over the course of the series.  Especially in Sirensong, where he finally started to be a little more open with his daughter.

As for the romance…I’m still not sure about Ethan and Dana as a couple.  All the stuff with Erlking that we saw in Shadowspell…well, that threw some obstacles in their way, but Dana manages to get out of the deal with the Erlking, which means he’s a non-issue.  As is Keane, who ends up with Kimber.  I don’t know that I was necessarily thinking of romance in this series, but the deal with the Erlking and his interest in Dana was definitely interesting.

Let’s Rate It:

Sirensong really did end the series so well!  While I didn’t love it, I still really enjoyed it and Dana’s story. Sirensong gets 4 stars.
