Review: Siren's Fury


Siren's Fury
Mary Weber
Storm Siren #2

Synopsis from Goodreads:
"I thrust my hand toward the sky as my voice begs the Elemental inside me to waken and rise. But it's no use. The curse I've spent my entire life abhorring—the thing I trained so hard to control—no longer exists."

Nym has saved Faelen only to discover that Draewulf stole everything she valued. Now he’s destroyed her Elemental storm-summoning ability as well.

When Nym sneaks off with a host of delegates to Bron, Lord Myles offers her the chance for a new kind of power and the whispered hope that it may do more than simply defeat the monster she loathes. But the secrets the Bron people have kept concealed, along with the horrors Draewulf has developed, may require more than simply harnessing a darker ability.

They may require who she is.

Set against the stark metallic backdrop of the Bron kingdom, Nym is faced with the chance to change the future.

Or was that Draewulf’s plan for her all along?


The sequel to Storm Siren, Siren’s Fury continues from the dreadful cliffhanger that left me gasping for hope. After winning the war with Bron, Nym finds that the war against Draewolf has only just begun—Draewolf has taken form of the most powerful man in Bron, planning to wreak havoc on the world. Nym is determined to stop him. The only problem is, Draewolf has stolen her powers.

Siren’s Fury was crazy! I was so afraid for Nym! She seemed so lost and, as usual, angry. She made a terrible choice that was more likely to ruin everything than to solve all the problems as she hoped. I was entirely afraid her choice would result in something terrible.

Siren’s Fury was pretty dark. Nym spent most of the book angry, heartbroken, and depressed as she fought against her enemies. The entire book hinged on that one decision she made. The consequences of that choice made the story become darker and darker from the evil magic involved and the effects it was having on Nym.

The descriptions of the country of Bron stayed in my mind. It was a violent country, full of harsh rules and sharp edges. There were factories, technological advances, and pollution. The people were used to a violent king. I am still not sure what would happen if Nym, their once enemy, marries their new, kinder king.

Overall, I enjoyed Siren’s Fury for its interesting plot and the continuation of the series, but I wish it was not as dark. I intend to read the third book in the series when it is published.

I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
