Editorial Reviews

Review

"Siren's Song is a mystery wrapped in a heart-wrenching love story that spans all different times. I laughed, I cried, I gasped, and I raged. Like Joss was pulled into the lake by Kyle, I was pulled into this story by D.L. Snow. I'm glad I didn't pass this one up." ~ Zodiac Book Reviews

"D.L. Snow's writing makes my heart sing...When you sit down to read SIREN'S SONG, get comfortable because you'll be glued to the pages until you reach The End!" ~ Sheila Seabrook, Two Time Golden Heart Finalist

"The way D.L. Snow intricately weaves Native American lore and legends with a very accurately depicted western gold town is what truly makes this such an amazing story!" ~ Trip Williams, Author

From the Inside Flap

Excerpt:
I rubbed my eyes and sniffed when a shadow passed over me and I spun around. The ghost of Kyle Copeland stood behind me.

I picked up a rock. "Go away!" I yelled and threw the rock at him. It went right through. "Can't you just leave me alone?"

He tilted his head to one side and then nodded once and walked right into the lake until he disappeared. All that was left of him was a nearly imperceptible ripple in the water where he'd vanished

From somewhere across the lake, I heard a soft, hauntingly heartbroken voice singing the same melody, the same words as the song I had written just that morning. Meet me in the Promised Land, where all our dreams come true, meet me in the Promised Land, I'll go first and wait for you...

I whipped my head around to try to catch the source of the voice. But there was no one there. Of course there wasn't. How could anyone know my song?

There was only one explanation. I was going crazy.

My hands shook as I splashed my face with the frigid lake water and then splashed again. After drying my face on the hem of my now wrinkled, cotton dress, I looked down into the disturbed water of the lake. Something was wrong. I cocked my head to one side and then the other trying to figure out what it was.

I slowly reached out to touch the strange reflection with my fingertip.
 
Instead of my face being reflected in the glassy surface of the water, it was Kyle's. When I frowned in confusion, Kyle smiled. I gasped but before I could scramble to my feet, Kyle's hands--his no longer transparent hands--reached up out of the water and grasped mine, locking me in his grip.

I tried to wrench my wrists free, but he was too strong. His cold, solid flesh held me and drew me forward. Then, in one powerful heave, he pulled me under.

D.L. Snow's writing makes my heart sing. I read her for the first time early this year and loved SLAYER so much, I went in search of other titles by this author. With the release of SIREN'S SONG, I'm in heaven. Written from the heroine's point of view, this is the story of a young woman dragged back to 1899, her struggle to adapt to her new surroundings, and her constant determination to return home to her own time. With a blend of action, romance, and ghostly intervention, D.L. Snow's latest release is golden.

This review comes with a warning: When you sit down to read SIREN'S SONG, get comfortable because you'll be glued to the pages until you reach The End!

Summary:

The main character of the book is Joss Jones, an ex-pop star who returns to her home town after the death of her grandmother. Joss inherits her grandmothers house but soon finds herself being haunted. That same ghost that has been haunting her is also the one who pulls her through the lake and takes her back in time to 1899. Here she finds herself in a time that makes no sense to her and a woman who tries to set her up with a wealthy man to care for her. Joss has no intentions of being set up and tries desperately to find her way home. She finds herself having feelings for the now live man who she was being haunted by and with a mission to take them both back to her own time of 2011.

***Spoiler Alert*** The second half of this review contains spoilers.

Why I didn't Like it:

First let me just say that the summary that I provided above is my way of simplifying this book down to the absolute basics of what I could understand and what I think the author was trying to tell.

Joss starts in 2011, going back to her hometown and being haunted by a ghost, that is identified as a boy that disappeared from town about 10 years ago named Kyle Copeland. Then she is pulled into a lake by this ghost back to the year of 1899. She is in Bandit Creek 1899 and finds herself face to face with who she thinks is Kyle, but it's not Kyle, he goes by the name Morgan Hawes. One of the wealthy men in Bandit Creek. Morgan even goes as far as to show Joss his birth certificate to prove that he is in fact Morgan Hawes and not Kyle Copeland. Morgan and Joss find themselves attracted to each other and have a one night stand that ends with Morgan proposing marriage.

This novella captured my interest from the beginning, and I enjoyed the time travel plot that took the protagonist into the past. The writing is also good. However, the ending makes no sense at all. It's very confusing, even after reading twice. Another reviewer has explained the ways she also feels it's confusing and unbelievable, even for a fantasy story, so you can read her review for more details if you want. I'll just say, for me, it was a disappointing way to end what I thought was an otherwise good story.

First of all, is it just me or does it seem like a lot of the other reviews are very similar to each other? Similar enthusiasm, similar instructions to others to stop all other activities, etc? Even when readers agree, shouldn't there be more variety in their reviews?
Second, the author is a good storyteller! I was intrigued from the beginning, even though I don't usually read time-travel/old west stories, and the mystery/romance was compelling. However, it seems to me that the story ended with too many unanswered questions, and I didn't enjoy the explicit sex. It wasn't necessary when the author had been describing the attraction of the two main characters so well.

Just downloaded onto my kindle this week, I was in the mood for something short and picked it up. It's a novella, approximately 2 or 2 and a half hours of reading. And very well done.

Joss is former singer turned school teacher. She hasn't sang since her mother died. (Interesting story there. Not telling.) She moves back to Bandit Creek, Montana where she struggles with who and what she wants to be and where she wants to do it. She's confused. She gets even more confused when a hand comes out and pulls her into Lost Lake, and into Bandit Creek 100 years ago.

There's a saloon madame who wants to sell Joss's services, a seedy man wanting to buy them, an Indian with answers he doesn't want to divulge, and of course, a handsome man that Joss starts to fall for.. but he thinks she's crazy-always talking about the future and tell him he's from it.. cause he looks exactly like a boy that disappeared from Bandit Creek ten years before (in modern Bandit Creek.)

I loved how this unfolded. I was left guessing as to its ending. The characters all had interesting stories. The love story was done at a good pace and believable. I think it could have used more details. I mean, the chick did time travel. Imagine using a nasty ole outhouse, bathing back then, getting adjusted to a life without modern appliances.

I really enjoyed this book. What's more, I read it almost in one sitting. I stayed up way past when I should have gotten to bed, because I couldn't wait to get to the end.

Unfortunately, it would appear the author had the same problem.

The author did a great job of capturing the feeling of a mining town during the gold rush. I felt like I was there, like I could smell the manure on the streets and the smoke from the fire. There were minimal errors in grammer and punctuation, in fact, I only noticed one word that seemed to be missing an "s" at the end. I cared about the characters, the main ones, the secondary ones.

These are all necessary components of a great novel, and in that the author succeeds. Yes, a time travel novel requires you to suspend belief to begin with, but there still needs to be a logical outcome. Without giving away the ending, think of Back to the Future and how Marty McFly goes back and changes the lives of his family. When he returns to his time, he sees the impact of those changes. There was nothing that occurred in the past, in this novel, to change the future, yet there are changes that are not explained. Even worse, there are contradictions in what the character first sees vs. what she later discovers. I also found the lack of some type of closure for some of the secondary characters to be disturbing.

This could have been a five star book, if only the end had been provided the same attention to detail that the beginning and middle had.
