I enjoyed this book, in large part because of it's setting. Leah Cutter successfully includes a diverse and colourful New Orleans as almost another character in the novel. The paranormal elements were interesting and well done.
My major complaint about the novel was that Kai was in denial though much of the beginning of the book, to the point of seeming obtuse or stupid. I dislike female protagonists who are willfully stupid. Otherwise, this was an entertaining urban fantasy with some open questions at the end which suggests a sequel. Some sexual content not appropriate for younger readers.
Siren's Call is the story of Kai's adventures while trying to rescue a kidnapped Siren. I really enjoyed reading this book. It was well written and fast paced. It kept my attention throughout. I enjoyed Kai's personality and her interactions with her friends. I loved how she refused to believe she was xita. She kept saying she was human, just a little special. I felt a lot of emotions while reading Siren's Call, the author took me on a roller coaster ride of emotions. I was a little confused at times. I would have liked a little more background on Kai. However, that didn't take away from the overall feel of the story. I did enjoy it and would like to read more of Kai's adventures.
Kai is an interesting character as she discovers more about herself, her relationships and the mysterious xita. She is independent and knows how to take care of herself but is able to accept help where she finds it. She is also interested in finding out about her Mama and her side of the family and how she fits in. Kai has two men in her life who each assist her in their own way. One is a human techno genius and the other is a xita shapeshifter. But this is not a romance. Kai is perfectly happy with the status quo and is not looking to settle down with either of them although she cares for them both very much.
I really enjoyed the book and felt the mounting pressure Kai was experiencing to prevent another hurricane in New Orleans. I liked the way the lead character problem-solved her way through the twists and turns her search took her. I could see the book being classified as ‘young adult’ but I think there was more going on in this story to limit it so. Kai’s world is vividly drawn out and easily envisioned and the story and its characters keep you involved to the very end. I would recommend this book for anyone looking for an involving adventure incorporating New Orleans of today with supernatural elements. The book holds your attention all the way through Kai’s increasingly desperate quest.
