A couple weeks ago, I was contacted by Aimee McNeil for a request to review her book. It has been a while since I have taken review requests, but I have a hard time turning down a fantasy/romance -- and I am glad I didn't. Her writing is beautiful, the words are entrancing, and the story flows smooth. The change in POVs also helped understand each character more and I am glad she decided to take this route.
Lorelei has always felt a connection with water, the ocean. There is something alluring about how it makes her feel calm. But her mother always warns her not to spends so much time gazing at it, fearing something ...
In this story Lorelei does not yet know what or whom she is--in a way it's almost innocent. She ends up being forced from home and during this period meets Ajax, who sometimes seems like he cares, the next, like he wants her dead. Together they go on a journey to fingering out what Lorelei is and what makes her different from others.
This is a story of sirens whom seduce and feed on human souls and soldiers whom are born with the fate to destroy any siren that comes in their path, called Men of Savas. I do not believe I have ever read a book on sirens; to be honest, I've never even heard the myths surrounding sirens. Aimee manages to include a brief idea of sirens and the myths within the plot itself, so for those of you who have never heard of these creatures, you'll be able to enjoy the story even more.
I enjoyed Lorelei she was strong despite not understanding the situations she was put in. The other characters were interest as well. I adored Oliver!
Another thing I should mention, I'm going to rate this book 18+. There are a few graphic scenes.
Overall, I could have devoured this book in a day, if it weren't for my hectic schedule. It's been quite some time where I have read a book that is not predictable; did not know how it was going to end -- SPEAKING of endings, the epilogue makes readers anticipate what's going to happen next! Hoping for a sequel ... (fingers crossed)
Go check this book out!
I found Alluring Song an amazing read! First I want to say that my beginning impression was that Aimee McNeil's writing style was poetic and inviting. As I went through the chapters the new characters that were introduced changed the feel of the story with very graphic and unexpected scenes which startled me. Both good and evil scenes. Her writing style kept hold of me, and she is very talented. The depth of the writing was well...alluring.
The characters were very real for me, and the fantasy world as well. The world building was a wonderful experience. I fell in love with Lorelei, and Oliver as individual characters. They were sweet and their friendship made my heart swell. I especially liked Oliver because he was simply hilarious at times. At first he appeared to be a small boy, and by the end of the book he had developed into a fine young man.
Lorelei and Ajax. They were intense, and incredibly romantic. I enjoyed their chemistry and passion for each other. Following their uncertain beginning relationship, and watching it take shape kept me turning the pages. I wanted to know more, see how they would finally be together. Both are strong willed, ruled by their emotions and let their hearts guide them as they fight the evil forces attacking at all sides. Always trying to save each other as well as others. Once their love and need for each other is realized they don't play games, but are refreshingly honest and sure.
The evil queen and her evil son. They were freakish and quite disturbing. I actually didn't want to read about them, they were so good at being evil it was alarming to read what horrific thing they did next.
There were grammatical common errors throughout the book which increased towards the end. I read a Kindle version so perhaps some were connected to formatting issues. Either way the small errors didn't take away from the story at all for me, they were just noticeable.
I'm pleased with the way this story was entangled with mythology. It was a fascinating story to weave with such legends, and I enjoyed it immensely. I love happy endings as well, and this one finished everything up wonderfully. It was an adventure, and I'm soooo glad the author wrote it! Looking forward to her future fantasy novels!
