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? ...

    I gave this book five four stars, so clearly I liked it. But that's not going to mean I don't have a few itches to scratch.About the Erlking:(view spoiler)[Let's summarize: gorgeous guy, apparently all-powerful, extraordinarily cunning, lover of a beautiful queen (and who know how many other women). Always showing some kind of interest for our heroine.Sure. Why not. That's just entirely believable (not). (hide spoiler)]About Henry:(view spoiler)[First of all, Henry is just too obvious. He isn't liked by anyone and from the start he gave off a distinct bad-guy vibe.And what do you know, in the end he is the bad guy. Duh. (hide spoiler)]About Keane:(view spoiler)[In just a few dozens pages he switches affections from Dana to Kimber. This is not consistent with his character as previously described. Fickle, fickle guy.Looks like the author found herself in an impasse and didn't know how to come aut of it. So she decided to dispatch the overabundant guy to the remaining girl. Is it just me or does this solution lack a little finesse? (hide spoiler)]

    I have nothing to say, except that this book takes the term crappy ending to a whole new level. I mean, I get that Jenna Black was possibly using reverse reverse reverse (and we all know I could keep going on) psychology with (view spoiler)[ Henry, the suspected bad guy, turning out to be, surprise surprise... the actual bad guy(wow, didn't see that one coming). Instead of going all red herring on us, she loyally protected Keane( Hey, don't look at me, I thought it was him) from the horrifying prospect of being trashed on fansites by angry fangirls. I'm still pissed. I mean, wow, introduce a new character, leave no time for any character development, aside from stating that he is unpleasant and then reveal he's evil. Way to go. I understand that sometimes the bad guy is the bad guy, but the least you can do is give him a character(Iago from Othello anyone?) (hide spoiler)]Other than that, the plot was kind of boring. I rushed through most parts and it seems the esteemed author did too. I won't deny that some of it was well written. I enjoyed the detail. But in the end, it boils down to the fact that the book was written as if there were wild stags on the author's tail(anyone get the Erlking reference here?). It was like she was desperate to finish the book and so she ended everyone's problems with a flick of her wand like her fairies (now I'm just being annoying. Everyone knows these fairies are too snobby cool to use wands). Even the epilogue was half-hearted. All in all, the book was written like a last minute, hastily written term paper. It had the potential to be a good book, but somehow ended up... well, not being one. Jenna Black is a good writer, but this book was, sadly, a disappointment.

    I really enjoyed this book but I didn't like the way it ended, that was really because I shipped something else and it wasn't endgame. But the book wasn't just about romance so I agree with the authors descion to end the series in this way

       I was hooked on the Faeriewalkers series when I finished Glimmerglass a couple months ago. I loved the story and waited anxiously for the people who checked out the sequels at the library to hurry up and return them. But Sirensong, compared to the other two books, was just not good. The characters didn't do anything out of the ordinary so I grew bored of them, and same for the plot. The parts that weren't predictable still weren't very unnerving. Like with Elizabeth. That was more like an "oh" moment rather than a "whoa" moment. And the action scenes aren't very action-y. Oh, and don't even get me started on our sixteen-year-old protagonist's reactions to pain. But I'm being messy, so I'll take this one step at a time. Like the first two books, I have mixed feelings about Dana. She's strong-willed and can be smart. She isn't too naive and can take care of herself. But I don't know, maybe it's just the dialogue. Some of the things this girl says and thinks just screams 'bratty' and 'childish'. I get the feeling that she's supposed to be this Rose Hathaway-esque (Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead) kind of character, but she falls much too short. Ethan isn't the same derrière-hole we met in the first book. The Hunt thing changed him, and he won't ever be the same. But like I said in my Shadowspell review, I still think he wouldn't have changed without that experience, even if he really did care about Dana.I don't hate Kimber, but I don't find anything in particular to like about her either. Except maybe the hot posset; I thought that was a really useless and quirky (in a good way) idea.I still love Keane. He's edgy but he's mature and he's smart. I really wish we got to know more about him though. We never even got through the first layer of his bad boy exterior. But even with the little knowledge of him, I found him to have the most personality out of all the characters. He's also the most fey. He's just so freaking awesome, and he reminds me of Patch Cipriano (Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick).The Erlking was as manipulative as ever in this book, and I loved that. He just makes things a lot more fun. Still wondering why his name is Arawn instead of Oberon, but whatever.   The romance in this book is kind of... meh. Obviously, Ethan and Dana have something... I just have no idea what that something is. What does this beautiful fey boy see in this five foot half-human? And would this half-human still be attracted to this beautiful fey boy if he were as ugly as a troll? Also, I saw that KeanexKimber thing coming from book one, but it still seemed so... fanfiction. I don't see anything between these characters. Why does Ethan like Dana? Why does Dana like Ethan? Why does Keane like Dana? Why does Dana not like Keane? Why does Keane like Kimber? (Geez, this guy is fickle.) Why does Kimber like Keane? The relationships in this book seem like normal 21st century relationships. They do care about each other but how long will that last? Because in YA books they last forever. And I really wished Dana would have had to live a life of celibacy. It would have stressed that not everything is about sex; that true love doesn't need it! Did Ethan really need it?   Now I am going to rant about something that It really saw as a problem in this book: Dana's reactions to physical pain. I swear this girl has a body made of steel because she deals with pain just fine actually. There are countless times in the book when Dana gets severely injured and "it took all I [Dana] had not to scream." If someone is burning a tattoo off your skin, you are most likely to scream. And when she got stabbed by the inch-long thorns all over her body, of course it didn't effect her afterwards. I mean, it's not like she suffered severe blood loss or anything. And now my opinion on the cover. My first thought was:"She's BLONDE?! It didn't say her hair color in the first book, but since everyone else in this book is blonde I assumed Jenna Black would want her heroine to be different but nooo. Gosh, this whole time I'd picturing Alexandra Daddario and..."And my second thought was:"Why does she look like Jane Randall from America's Next Top Model? (I swear it's her!) Dana's not supposed to be that pretty. That's Kimber if anyone."I'm alright with book covers getting the models wrong, but Dana is supposed to represent this girl who is more than she looks and blondie over there just doesn't do it.

    Review of Faeriewalker Series collectively.In A Nutshell:Since I read Glimmerglass for the first time, I have been enchanted by this series. I loved the magical world that Jenna Black created. I loved the characters, the adventure, even the love stories. But the element I found completely unique to this series was Jenna Black’s open and honest description of the effects an alcoholic can have on every aspect of the lives of people around him/her. I marvel that Jenna Black was able to fit this message into this series without it feeling preachy or moral-driven. It is fun and it is magical.Review:Sirensong seems to be the end of the series, and I have to say I will miss these characters. I found Jenna Black’s world enchanting and her characters honest and memorable. However, as I looked back on the series after I finished Sirensong, it was not the magic, the faeries, Avalon, or even the love stories that stood out to me. It was Jenna Black's honest and open description of Dana’s life as the child of an alcoholic, and how that affected Dana’s life and decisions. I do not want to insinuate that Jenna Black wrote this series with the primary intent of presenting a message about alcoholism, but I do want to commend her on handling this issue the way she did. Originally, I questioned Dana’s continued willingness to repeatedly disregard advice of her family and friends, which usually led to her putting herself in harm’s way to save them. Is the best solution to sacrifice yourself? However, as I looked at this question within the context of this story and the character of Dana, I realized for Dana the solutions in the book were the best. Dana was a product of her childhood which was filled with loneliness caused by constant moves and shame caused by hiding the secret of an alcoholic mother. It affected the choices that Dana made. It affected how she related to people. It affected how Dana valued the first set of friends she had in her life. I liked the character of Dana, so it was sometimes hard to watch her make the decisions she did; to repeatedly risk her own life and happiness to save another. But that was who Dana was and her decisions showed how devoted she was to the people in her life. At the end of Sirensong, I was glad to see that Kimber took Dana to Alateen meetings. I would hope that with support Dana would learn her own value so she did not feel she should allows sacrifice herself for another. The one issue I had with the series is that the girls seemed to be very critical of themselves, while the boys were presented as near perfect. Kimber, who is an academic genius, can only focus on her mediocre magical skills. Dana, who is a wonderful singer, always feels unattractive compared to the magically attractive full-blooded Fae that surround her. However, Ethan, whose temper is part of why he ends up in the Wild Hunt, knows he is magically gifted and thinks he is almost invincible. Keane, who harbors a lot of resentment about—well everything, has declined his calling as a knight. The standard of a successful girl with high self-esteem seems to be much harder to reach than the standard for the boys.Overall, I loved the series though. The magical spell that Jenna Black casts took me in and despite the seemingly unending danger, I wish I could visit Avalon and bring Dana some coffee.

    [If you haven't read books 1 and 2, don't read this review! I'm trying to be vague, but don't want to be spoilery!]I thought that this was a very good end to the trilogy, and a good personal arc for Dana.We get to see Faerie, there is lots of courtly intrigue, some romance, a lot of running, and all of Dana's secrets come out. I'm glad that the love triangle never played out. Everything is also not roses there either - Dana is unsure about her future with Ethan and I find that very realistic for a teen, especially one with Dana's past. I liked the interactions with the Wild Hunt, too.Throughout the trilogy, she's been trying to save everyone - herself included. Dana has to face some hard facts in this one. She also has a lot of trust issues, stemming from growing up with an alcoholic mom. Book 1 starts with Dana running away to find her father to escape living with her mother, and in the hope that this act would shock her mother into admitting she has a problem. I really liked how the story came full circle. It is not all wrapped up in a little bow, but Dana has grown from her experiences. She's also sill a teenager - her life is not decided yet. She has learned that there are people that she can depend on, and that's one of the best parts of the book.

    My Thoughts: We are once again back with Dana and her gang of family and friends. Dana has been living with her father in Avalon for a while now and there is never a dull moment. Dana and her father attend a party hosted by Prince Henry and he invites them on a trip to see the Queen. Invite is a strong word, they have go to otherwise it's disrespectful and could start a fight.Dana insists to her father that she be escorted by her friends Ethan and his sister Kimber. Her father lets them come but is a little unsure of it, but he figures Ethan can also watch her back and protect her. Of course Finn and his son Keane are also coming. I loved how much we see of her friends in this novel. I loved how her relationship with Ethan is growing and Keane is also around more. I still want to see more of Keane! But even though we know he had a crush on Dana, he is now focusing his attention more on Kimber. They start on their journey and figure they will be save with Henry's entourage since nobody would dare attack them! Of course things do not go as planned and they do get attacked. We also realize that Erlking is still around and is following Dana.Erlking is a mysterious character. We know that he looks out for himself and if its in his best interest, he'll do it. But he protects Dana a lot more than he has too. He kind of feels an allegiance to her I suppose. Even though we're supposed to fear him and loathe him, I always find myself liking him and his sense of humor. He makes things more interesting. We also see more of Dana's brother who is in the Wild Hunt.Once, they all get to the Queen's there is an attack and Dana is the one whose at blame since she's the only one who can carry technology in. So they all run, even though she's innocent. They are on the run with nowhere to go! How did the technology get in? What happens when Erlking decides he wants Dana to himself and sends Ethan after her? Will the romance ever go further with Ethan because once Dana gives her virginity up, since Erlking can step in and own her power? Is it worth it? Does Dana become a better fighter? Does she live or die? Read the book now! Overall: Loved Sirensong! I think I loved this one more than the first two. The trip to the Queen's was interesting. They are on the move a lot so lots of things happen. She sees weird things she's never seen before. When Dana is wanted by the Queen, she is quite brave and does anything she has to in order to survive. We also see her powers developing more and realize just what she can do! I loved Sirensong, I hope you do too! Cover: She's so pretty! I also love how she is leaning down on her hands. What I'd Give It: 5/5 Cupcakes_________________________________Review Based On Softcover EditionTaken From Princess Bookiewww.princessbookie.com

    A lot of things bugged me during the reading of this book, but I'll only name a few. I got really sick of the repetitiveness of issues, such as 'I can never have sex with Ethan and it's oh so hard' (or not hard at all..excuse my inappropriateness). It wasn't the fact that it was an issue that bothered me, it was more the fact that the same thing was being said over and over again. It was similar with Dana and her mother's alcohol problem. As soon as anything at all was mentioned to do with alcohol I felt like, 'oh great here we go again with another description of how Dana's Mum is an alcoholic who is in denial!'. I understand what the author was trying to do, in that she was attempting to make the issues Dana was experiencing deeper, but in my opinion it didn't work and it didn't feel as though the story flowed naturally. I also had a problem with the inappropriateness of the intimacy between Ethan and Dana, particularly when they were stuck in a hole right next to Kimber and Keane. It was just plain wrong and it made me cringe. The Erlking is another thing that really doesn't seem right. He is supposed to be some big evil tough guy, yet all evidence points to the contrary and yeah sure he is supposedly some weird creepy guy who takes the virginity from girls to steal their power but realistically there is no evidence to suggest that he actually does this. His actual voice and character just doesn't seem to match the person that he is supposed to be - but hey perhaps there is some kind of weird mysterious twist for the next book that will make it all alright! Overall I have to say that unfortunately the voice of Dana just really seemed to bug me in this one.

    The last place Dana Hathaway ever imagined she’d have to go was Faerie. With both Queens of Faerie trying to kill her, she never thought her father would accept an invitation to visit Queen Titania of the Seelie Court.Being presented at Court is supposed to be an honor, but when you are a Faeriewalker, like she is, the reason for the invitation is definitely suspect. And although they were promised safe passage and an escort, including Prince Henry himself and his Knights, traveling through Faerie is not likely to be as easy as everyone seems to believe.As much as Dana would prefer to leave her friends behind, to keep them safe from harm, knowing that they’d be coming with her makes this perilous journey somewhat less frightening. And even though she and Ethan are even more at risk due to the Erlking’s influence in Faerie, just having him there with her makes her feel more secure.But when a surprise attack nearly costs Dana her life and the life of her friends, the feeling of foreboding she has gets stronger. If the Queen’s promise of safety can’t even protect her son and his entourage, how can she possibly think she’ll make it to the Seelie Court, let alone make it back to Avalon, with her life, and her secrets, intact.If Dana can’t figure out how to protect herself from the politics of Faerie and keep her friends out of harm’s way, none of them may ever see Avalon again. And if she can’t keep her distance from the Erlking, she may become the Wild Hunt’s next rider.And she thought things in Avalon were complicated.***Sirensong, the third book in the Faeriewalker series, takes readers on another exciting adventure with Dana Hathaway – this time leaving the relative safety of Avalon for the significantly more dangerous world of Faerie.The story picks up just shortly after everything that transpired with the Erlking and the Wild Hunt in Shadowspell. Dana is still living in her safe house, continuing to train with Keane and trying to figure out a way out of the bargain she made with the Erlking.As she heads off to Faerie with her father and her friends, Dana is still keeping secrets about just what happened with the Erlking, secrets that may put more than just her friendships on the line. And leaving behind her alcoholic mother, who refuses to even admit she has a problem, makes Dana even more worried about what she’ll be returning home to, if she is even allowed to return.Sirensong is a bewitching story of Faerie magic, heroism, bravery, love and friendship. As Dana tries to navigate the complex landscape of Faerie, she learns more about the power of honesty, about who she is, what she is capable of, and the importance of friendship.Jenna Black has written yet another charming and completely captivating story in the series. There are a few surprises, someone new to keep an eye on, and a slightly darker turn for one of the character. And although this installment may not have quite as steamy a scene as there was in Shadowspell, there is just as much tension and a few heart-racing moments that will entice.This book is a must read for fans of the series and for readers who enjoy an enchanting adventure through the magical world of Faerie, with a bit of a mystery to piece together, a few ulterior motives to uncover, and a heroine who is brave, incredibly determined, and who has some pretty cool powers.On a personal note:This series is such a yummy distraction from reality. I absolutely love the author’s writing style. It’s so easy to caught up in the adventure. And this one is definitely an adventure.Finally Dana gets to go into Faerie. I couldn’t wait to see how the author treated this magical place. And although I didn’t get to see a lot of Faerie I loved her take and was completely sucked into the journey – Green Ladies, Brownies, Bogles and all.The author does a great job at the beginning of filling in all the pieces, so that you technically don’t have to read the first couple of books in order to read this one, but I still wouldn’t recommend skipping them. As much as you can get caught up with the story, you won’t have developed your connection with the characters. And you won’t really know Ethan, Keane or Kimber enough understand why they react as they do.If you’re reading all three books in one sitting, the rehash may slow the pace, which doesn’t really pick up steam until they leave for Faerie, but if it’s been awhile between books it is super helpful.Once Dana arrived in Faerie I was not able to put the book down. And between her practice fights with Keane and how Ethan dealt with his jealousy, there were some seriously entertaining and laugh out loud moments.After Shadowspell, the Erlking, also known as Arawn, was my second favorite character, but now I think he’s my favorite. I still love Dana, but the flawed half-mortal that she is, is really no competition for the age-old leader of the Wild Hunt. He’s conniving, he’s gorgeous, he’s wicked cool and he seems absolutely intrigued by Dana. Maybe even a little frightened of her, though he’d never admit it.Dana is still lovable, with her sarcasm, lack of interest in all things girlie, and her tough and determined streak. And I like that she seems to be getting more of a dark side – maybe it’s her faerie half shining through. I’m interested to see where that might lead, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a fourth book.But as this story wraps up without a cliffhanger, I’m now terrified to think that there might not be a book four. I still think there are more adventures to be had with more story left to tell, I just hope the author does too.So, in order to keep my hope alive, I’ll just say I can’t wait to read the next book in the Faeriewalker series.And yes, I realize that Dana and the Erlking would probably not be the best couple – she’s young and he’s ancient – but still, their personalities make them a great match.

    The love square comes to an end!! Nothing brings me more pleasure when a painful love triangle comes to end, or so I thought. It brings me greater pleasure when a terrible love square ends!! It is a great thing for this series since I love it so much.What’s not so great is that it’s not Ethan who gets the can, no I think Dana actually loves him more. It’s my dear Keane, but in this case it’s OK. As a team Keane fan, I think I can speak for us all when I say he went to a better love interest. In defense of Ethan, he’s actually grownup a lot. The ordeal of being under the Erklings thumb has matured him, that doesn’t mean he loses those annoying-boy-wine moments. It’s safe to say he still gets on my nerves, but I can deal with him now. The role of the Erkling really gets confusing in Sirensong. His actions are still pretty self serving, but he does things that make you wonder about him. Maybe deep down—past his scheming and manipulative core—he’s a decent guy. Well . . . enough that I can say I don’t feel too guilty for swooning over him. After all he killed that nasty bargain about Dana’s virginity dilemma. Thank you!!Another great thing is that Dana’s magical powers are used more and we get to see them develop. Her ability to make the Faye mortal is chilling, and she’s started to add a little more “physical” power behind it. The magic of the fairy realm also gets explored, though it stays firmly within the Seelie Court. It’s pretty much the standard “vision” of the fiarie realm. You know lots of forests, house made to blend in, the vegetation is commanded to move and do what they want, and the Seelie court is a towering fortress. Still it’s lots of fun, I for one never get tired of it.While I don’t think Sirensong is as good as the second book—Shadawspell—it’s definitely another great entry to the series. However, author Jenna Black states Sirensong is the last entry. It’s truly sad. Black’s series has to be one of the most unique takes on fairies in the Urban Fantasy genre. Painful doesn’t even begin to describe how I feel about this series dying before it even gets a decent chance. Worse series get dragged out, and yet the publishers don’t want to endorse this one. Here’s to crossing my fingers that the Faeriewalker books will rise from the ashes and get a second chance. After all this book finished up enough not to be a painful end, but there’s clearly more places it NEEDS to go.Sexual Content: Kana thinks a lot about sex, a lot. Dana has a few make out scenes and she walks in on someone(s) clearly just finishing up with a bedroom scene. There is elitist/family abuse in this book, at times it made me grimace. Rating: 3/5 Adored it, just a few minor details held it back.Original review at Book Whispers.

    I think this book has been the best out of the Faeriewalker series. But considering I gave it 3 stars, that doesn't exactly speak well of the books, now, does it? This series has been one of the rare ones in which I've found the good guys (male and female alike) to be largely whiny, adolescent, and altogether annoying, and the bad guys tend to be caricatures. With the exception of the Erlking, the bad guys tend to be purely evil, with no redeeming qualities that would make them seem...for lack of a better word, human.Take Henry in this book (oh, and Elizabeth? Could you possibly be any more obvious with the naming, Ms. Black?), he is a parody. It may be possible that I read too many Regencies, but I picture him as a foppish Beau Brummel type, with a pencil-on beauty mark and white powdered face, and he's written as such a jerk that really, it doesn't take a brain bigger than that of a goldfish to figure out who's behind the big mystery here.And the guys, ugh, it got so bad that I'd rather date Dana's dad out of all the other options in the book. I mean, he's a bit stiff, but he's immortal, and Fae, so looks and age are not a factor here. Plus, he's mature, responsible, and he's had a few millennia to tame all that alpha male testonerone that Keane and Ethan can't keep under control. Good god, those two. I just want them to go at it and KO each other out already; they're intolerable enough by themselves, throw them in with each other and the f-s (fists and f-cks) just fly all over the damn place. Just kill each other and be done with it. They're like Abercrombie & Fitch models; nice to look at, but you wouldn't actually want to have a conversation with them, you know?Kimber--I HATE that name, by the way, it reminds me of an overtly cheerful yoga intructionist that I just want to punch in the face when she's chirping at me to lift my ass higher as my muscles scream in protest, which actually isn't too far off from the character of Kimber herself. Oh, right. Kimber. Most annoying friend ever. I actually don't hate Dana as much now that I think of it. Surrounded by all these terrible people, she cannot be blamed for her lack of intellectual and rational skill development. The alcoholic mother is the least of her problems.

    Read this yesterday and dying to get it out of my system!!Okay...SO I loved this, it was unexpected and some funny bits. I'm glad the character's personalities didn't change throughout the series. I did feel kind of jealous when I was reading the whole 'Kimber and Keane' thing.Another thing was that I SERIOUSLY can't picture Ethan in my head. I don't know how to think of his hair: Does he have curtains? Or is it parted at the side? Is it even? Or all different lengths? Why couldn't he have had nice shortish blond hair that fell into his eyes and made him look sexy? But NO, he had to have horrible long hair that probably makes him look like a pirate!Now that's out of the way. The book had a nice plot and I found my self enjoying their adventure through Faerie. There was some pretty good tension and some quality action (which I loved). I thought the book ended quite well. It didn't follow the 'And they all lived happily ever after' thing but I did kind of expect it to end: Ethan and Dana do what they do, Dana's Mum quits drinking, everybody is friends, etc. But it was nice to see that Jenna Black was being realistic!Hope to read her books in the future!! :D

    2.5 starsMeh. All of the books in this series are ok, and this one is no different. In other words, I'm glad I checked this out from the library instead of paying for it.I've read that there are no more book planned in this series anytime soon (not sure how true that is), and I can honestly say that it's probably for the best. Sirensong just had a stagnant feel to it, especially with character development. It also felt like the different love interests were being quickly paired off so everything could be tidy when it was put to bed...only it wasn't done very well. I couldn't bring myself to care who was with whom.But it was readable. I guess that's the best thing I can think to say about it.

    With some stray comments I saw, and with the epilogue, I suppose this would be the last book in the Faeriewalker series. In response to that, let's just say thatI am not happy! I thought Sirensong was an arresting novel from start to end. The only reason I was able to stop before I hit page 100 was because 1. I'd just finished Shadowspell before I started on Sirensong and so 2. I must restrict the quantity of goodness I was being exposed to. 3. It was late, and I'd promised myself to sleep early. (That didn't work out. By the time I finished making myself calm down because of Shadowspell, and finished the book review on Goodreads, it was 1am-.-) In Sirensong, Dana is 'invited' to Faerie to meet Queen Titania. The honoring invitation comes in the form of a self-centred, incredibly cruel and mean Prince - Prince Henry. Dana's dad makes it clear to her that they have no way out of it, and also tells her more about Henry, and his own time at court. Dana is repeatedly reassured of her safety, because she will be travelling as a dignified guest of the Queen herself, but of course, Dana doesn't believe the words. With a gun her father gave to her, and the magic she possesses, she unwillingly makes her way to Faerie with the entire circus. Keane, Kimber, and Ethan accompany her. Her mum, though, is left in Avalon - to her drinking devices. I thought that part was well-written: The alcohol addiction of Dana's mother was very relatable especially to the current-world-readers of this fictional novel, and Dana's frustration, anger, and sorrow at her mother's self-destructive behavior were all pictured realistically. Even during their journey, Keane insists on practising with Dana. It was as entertaining as previous sessions of practice, though I would have preferred if Kimber wasn't there to drool over Keane (okay, fine, I'm jealous of a fictional character because I have a crush on a fictional character-I know, I know!). Ethan takes down Keane's shield spell, and Dana kicks Keane in the groin at that moment. That was a bit O_O for me. That had been an emotionally-charged scene, at least it seemed to me, because of Keane's lingering attachment or crush (as I saw it) on Dana. It was..put simply, a memorable scene.On their way to the Palace, the whole group is attacked by a bunch of Unseelie creatures. In the turmoil that ensues, Dana is carried away from the group (where there are a bunch of Knights and all to protect her, or at least, the Prince) by her horse. And because even a child would be able to tell you that Faerie horses, or animals, would not run off in a panic, to the heart of danger, it's no surprise when it's revealed that Dana's horse had been charmed. However, she is saved by -who else?- the Erlking. That part was a bit crazy, because the Erlking is crazy. I don't mean that in the literal sense (or maybe I do), but because although both Dana and I (a well-written novel always seems to make you feel like the protagonist) plain as day know the guy for bad news, we (ha-ha) can't help but be completely attracted. It's like watching something terrible unfold - you cannot look away. You're transfixed. And that's how it is with the Erlking. He's terrible, but yet he always comes through for Dana, and when he does, it's impossible to look away. Now I sound crazy. Uhm, that part about him and Dana on horseback may have been a source of annoyance or irritation to those who a) think Dana is a sex-crazed teenager, or b) dislike/hate any mention of sex or just any nuances of sex in their books, especially in a YA novel. Not me. I liked how he moved away when he heard about the spell Dana had cast, though; it made me fear for Dana, and fearful of the man. Or rather, the immortal. Oh and anyway, I really REALLY liked the part about the Green Lady! I'd never seen anything like that before in any other Faerie books, and I thoroughly enjoyed the scene, even if it wasn't all that positive for Dana. It was also, in my mind, a brilliant way of introducing something new to the reader ((view spoiler)[Elizabeth (hide spoiler)]). Then from then on, things progress really quickly. Princess Elaine, Titania's granddaughter, is assassinated with a bomb - something only a Faeriewalker can do. Or at least someone in her aura. (view spoiler)[Wow, wow, wow *Slow clapping* There's another Faeriewalker after all. This reminds me greatly of (view spoiler)[Storm Born (hide spoiler)]. This new twist made my stomach coil and twist and turn. Jenna Black is one good writer.(hide spoiler)]Separated from her dad and Finn, Dana and her friends go on a run. Wherein much things happen. What I do not get is why Kimber is so mad at Dana. Yes, she kept a bijillion secrets from her, yes, she did lie about certain things, like the geis. But she didn't do it to hurt her! If anything, she was trying to protect her. Maybe she was mad at Dana for not trusting her enough to tell her things, but didn't she get that Dana is an individual who warms slowly and is hesitant to trust? That doesn't make her any less than a friend - that just makes her who she is! Why is Kimber so quick to anger at Dana just because she didn't tell her the entire truth? Yeah, it might hurt, but I don't get why she had to run away and all. The part about (view spoiler)[Kimber and Keane (hide spoiler)] did not please me. /narrows eyes[Refer to review about Shadowspell]A load of things happen, and Dana returns to the palace where she does one of the most dangerous, craziest things to save her family and friends. I suppose people will be quick to point out here how Dana seems to be a protagonist who lacks common sense, is too full of herself to not think of better ways, to think she can actually succeed, yada yada. And then (view spoiler)[Dana kills Henry. (hide spoiler)] The 'meeting' she had with Titania to discuss her life -or death- was a bit monotonous for me though it still had captured my attention. Maybe because of the magic and all; like things had a lost a bit of steam after Dana's ability was revealed. Following that, Dana makes another deal with the Devil. Seriously. Arawn is just such a well-written character, in my humble opinion. He's manipulative, arrogant, proud, perhaps cruel, maybe malicious, but he can still charm the feet off you, or at least, make you hate him while loving him. He's so dangerous I'd shrivel into a puddle of water if I ever met him in life. There's so many facets to him. What follows is pretty tame; reunions with her mom (who is still such a horrible disappointment!!!); making up with her BFF; making out with her boyfriend; getting scolded by her dad. There wasn't any(or much) mention of Keane and Finn, though. Keane made an appearance toward the end, but it was a short one, and nothing more was said about him and Dana. Which really disappointed me. And also, Finn was hardly mentioned... I was wishing for Dana to sprint and embrace him. I would have loved to see his reaction!Although the epilogue did a lot to wrap the series up, there's still this lingering feeling that there needs to be more; to account for things that haven't happened, to satisfy this hunger, you know? I'm hoping desperately that I am wrong, that the Faeriewalker series IS going to be continued. I am thoroughly, completely, truly looking forward to the next installment of the series. I have zero doubt it'd be one exciting ride on the roller-coaster (not that I'd been on one, but you know..).

    I thought it was good. There was romance, comedy, adventure, and real life situations. I think there could be another book on her future with everyone ( friends, family, and the erkling). I feel there could be something more between Dana and erkling that could affect her and Kimberly. I like the story line a lot but the ending is too sweet. Otherwise good book. Worth sharing with others.

    Review courtesy of All Things Urban FantasyWhen a queen invites you to court, even if that queen wants you dead, you go. That’s what Dana learns at the beginning of SIRENSONG. At least she gets to take her boyfriend and best friend with her. But she also has to take her relentless fight instructor who might or might not be transferring his affections to another, her father, and the queen's haughty son. Almost without fail, I lose a bit of interest when books with fae end up crossing into Faerie. There are the obligatory forests, nasty critters, and not quite normal phenomenons, but I always find the scenes set there—regardless of the book—a bit ho-hum. Sad to say it, but I found that true here too. Fortunately, the last third of SIRENSONG, even set in Faerie, is pretty great. The action, romance, and emotions all kick up ten fold.Don’t expect the same amount of sexy time as in the previous books. There are a few scenes that still push the YA boundary, but they are significantly lighter and less frequent in SIRENSONG. That’s not to say Dana doesn’t think about sex a lot, she does, but it’s in the context of knowing she will never have it and whether or not Ethan will stick around without it. I wish Dana had had more self respect to realize that if Ethan wouldn’t stay without sex then she doesn’t need to waste her time. In that sense, she took a step back from the strength and intelligence I admired in her previously.My biggest disappointment with SIRENSONG is the fact that it is the unintentional swan song for the series (Jenna has confirmed that SIRENSONG is the final Faeriewalker book). It is very clearly not written as the final book since many of the extremely compelling storylines threading through the previous books are left hanging. Is the Erlking secretly not as bad as he pretends? Will Ethan be able to accept the physical limitations imposed on his relationship with Dana? Will Dana’s mom ever acknowledge her alcoholism and seek help? Why is Dana able to use magic when no other faeriewalker ever could? Will Dana break her vow to the Erlking with Ethan or give her virginity—and her powers—to the Erlking as promised? Precious few of these questions are answered in SIRENSONG.Overall, SIRENSONG is another fun foray into a faerie infused world, but there are too many questions left unanswered and too many storylines left unresolved in the series as a whole. It isn’t a cliffhanger, but it isn’t the true series ending either that it needed to be. Jenna has said that she is working on a new YA series and it’s clear by now that she has the writing chops to make it another winner. It’s just unfortunate that this series won’t get the chance to end the way I think Jenna and we readers would have wanted.Sexual Content:Kissing. Scenes of sensuality. References to sex

    ok so apparently i read from several people this might be the last book in the series and i can see maybe it could be, as some of the problems are resolved: the love triangle and the erlking problem. I feel like the series is rushed for and ending though. i have enjoyed the previous two books but the last book is like a mishmash of it all and hurried. I gave two stars because of the relationships in the book...namely the romantic stuff and how the storyline is forced at times.There was so much more sexual innuendos in this book! I'm going to break it down into what i think about some of the characters...Read ahead only if you don't mind my ranting and spoilers:Ethan: (view spoiler)[ I have never never liked Ethan...something about him seems fishy to me and I dont get what Dana saw in him over Keane. He was supposed to have changed because of the Erlking but i cant really tell. I don't think Dana would have fallen so hard for him if it weren't for his pretty face. Would she still be in love if he had a troll face? I highly doubt she liked him for his wonderful character. (hide spoiler)]Keane: (view spoiler)[ i wish he was the main guy just because he is much more interesting than Ethan. Ethan is so cookie-cutter golden boy while Keane is the jerk with a heart of gold. He also understands that Dana can be strong while Ethan likes to think she needs protection. like the part where Ethan butted in when Keane was teaching Dana self defense. Plus the author made Keane switch his affections to Kimber so fast! That seemed so out off character.(hide spoiler)]Erlking: (view spoiler)[ i think he was awesome. he wouldnt make a good lover for Dana because who knows what the Erlking trully feels about her? But out of all the guys he is probably the most interesting(hide spoiler)]Dana: (view spoiler)[ i dont know what to make of her! sometimes shes kickass and at other times shes too whiny and bratty. Shes halfway awesome because of her powers.(hide spoiler)]Kimber: (view spoiler)[ I like her hot posset...thats about it. she feels like a character thrown in so there would be another girl to balance Dana out and shipping her and Keane together would solve the love triangle. Maybe she would be a better main character than Dana though.... (hide spoiler)]Henry: (view spoiler)[ i was so annoyed that he was so obviously the bad guy! theres no brainwork involved...heres the bad guy, handed to you on a silver platter, go on hate him...(hide spoiler)]And whats up with the cover? If thats Dana then shes too pretty(its as if she has no pores!a perfect porcelain doll), i thought it was Kimber when i looked at it.

    Actual rating is 3.5 stars. I think. Also, spoilers from the last 2 books, so beware.I guess I liked this series, but I was never really a huge fan of it. I really liked the first book but the second was kind of a letdown, and I was a little skeptical about reading this one. But after hours of staring at the drool-worthy cover, I finally started reading it. And . . . I don't know. Some parts were pretty interesting to read, but I still was expecting more.This book starts off where the Shadowspell left off. Dana goes to an event with her father and meets Prince Henry, the son of the Seelie Queen, Titania. Dana is invited to the Seelie Court, and she's skeptical because she's aware that Titania wants her dead, but eventually they start the long and treacherous journey to Faerie. Ethan, Kimber, Keane and Finn come along as well. But trouble arrives when Dana encounters the Erlking, Arawn, again, and even bigger trouble comes when an assassination is attempted against Titania's granddaughter, and Dana is considered a fugitive.Dana didn't really change or show improvement. I guess I like her, but she kind of annoys me sometimes. She's always treating her mom so badly due to her alcoholism, but she can't seem to understand that her mother is addicted, and addictions can't just go away with a snap of a finger. It needs work.I was sad when Keane was revealed to not be a love interest anymore, because I honestly preferred him over Ethan. Instead, Keane ends up having a thing with Kimber, and at first I thought maybe Dana would show some type of jealousy, then that would make sure that Keane is still a love interest, but no. Dana didn't even show a tiny bit of jealousy. Even when it's revealed that Keane and Kimber eventually have sex.But I do admit that Ethan is a bit more likable than usual in this book, while Keane on the other hand is a lot less likable in my opinion. I'm not sure I'm either of their teams now, really.A lot of bombs drop in this book─no pun intended (if you read it, you'll know)─and for the most part they were interesting enough to keep me reading until I finished it. But overall I would give this book 3 or 3.5 stars. And maybe 3 stars for the series as a whole. It's not exactly one of my most favorite faerie series', but it's still pretty good.

    ***there may be spoilers here -- I tried, but may have let one or two slip***Dana is in lock down in a safe house deep in the mountain of Avalon where she pines for freedom and which she gets through the help of the Erlking's protection. Freedom always comes with a price for Dana. Her presence is requested by Titania, the Seelie Queen, where she is to be presented at court. It all sounds excitingly innocent, but this being a faerie court, there are ulterior motives especially when the invitation comes from Prince Henry who is not her biggest fan. Dana takes Keane, Kimber and Ethan along for protection and companionship. Her father's court intrigue as Titania's consort comes back into play since he replaced Prince Henry's father and Henry has never forgiven him. While traveling though the Faerie countryside, Dana makes an a couple of decisions that on the surface don't seem very important, but play a huge part in her safety. The procession to the castle with Prince Henry shows how much he despises Dana's father and even with Finn and the rest protecting Dana, there are many attempts on her life. The Erlking also makes his presence known and lends his protection, even though he really doesn't have to. I think the Erlking shows more humanity and becomes an important ally in Dana's defense. He is probably my favorite character even though he is slightly evil, he freely admits he only does things are in his best interest. (Maybe we can convince the author to spin off a series just of him maybe for us grown ups!) Dana learns that she has even more magic in her than she ever thought possible. Of course, once they do reach the castle there is even more intrigue.I thought this was the best of the series and although I believe this in the final chapter in Dana's story, I would really like to revisit the characters here again. Dana really grows in this last book and even though she still has her issues with her alcoholic mother and trusting others, she finally learns she has friends that she can lean on. You can see her despair and anger while she deals with her mother and the magical gifts she develops. It is really bittersweet at the end and will make you wish it hadn't ended quite yet.

    Again between 2-3 stars (i'm a very indecisive person). I'd hate not to give credit where credit is due because I did enjoy reading this but...hm. So Erlking, not a lot of explanation to his character and his actions at the end of the book. I mean there is but it seems sort of out of the blue and there needed to be some character developement. Elizabeth/Henry- (view spoiler)[the whole "there's another fairywalker" was just so...how do i put it? Well how Dana figured it out i mean yes it was the only explanation in context but also after the whole "YOU ARE THE ONLY EXISTING ONE IN MANY YEARS AND YOU'RE SO RARE" it was all very sudden. i get it thats how the story played out but it irked me. also very predictable about Henry being bad but i don't really care about predictable sometimes (hide spoiler)] umm again not the fan of the writing style with just the way things are worded. I know it's first person it's a teenager but eh didn't float my boat :P Gee usually not this picky i did it with the 2nd book also (i read both of them today so...hey usually when people say "it was so good i read it in one sitting" thats a good thing but i read most books in one sitting. just the way i am. read a lot and often (: but despite everything i wouldn't necessarily discourage anyone from reading the series. I still found it an enjoyable story and although there are similar stories or ideas everything seems different to me because in my mind when i imagine it, it may be Avalon in all those stories but each world appears differently in my head....gosh am i off topic again. imagine that. sooo yup there's my two cents :D sorry didn't quite articulate all my thoughts fully but...everything just sounds better in your head doesn't it? because you know what you're saying and what the message is so i end up like....skipping over my entire thought and summarizing it. gee there i go again. yeah i'm done.Sorry not that helpful a review if u feel like you're time has been wasted. WHICH IT SHOULDN'T BECAUSE...something deep about everybody sharing ideas and listening and importance of....that.

    Sirensong was a great book! I loved it much more that Faeriewalker and Glimmerglass combined. It was much more entertaining and a fun a quick read.I must admit that my reasons for purchasing Faeriewalker were quite random (it was the only book I had seen that originally came out in paperback and not hardback...it seemed strange and it was therefore pretty cheap, besides--the cover was pretty and we all know how much i love pretty covers) I liked both Faeriewalker and Glimmerglass, but Sirensong took the cake. Although Sirensong had a slow start like its predecessors, once the action began you couldn't put the book down. I was frequently upset while reading Faeriewalker and Glimmerglass. I felt like Dana was stupid with a lot of her decisions; however, Dana seemed to make good choices (for the most part) during this particular book. I continue to hate her mother, but whats new with that! Dana seems to be growing into herself as a Faeriewalker and I love it. I'd definitely want to be her friend.In addition, Dana and Ethan's relationship has been getting quite hot and steamy and I love it. He's so sweet and yet still a bad boy. He's one of those guys you meet and cant help but feel some sort of attraction to (and it helps that his reputation proceeds him....he is definitely a bad boy!!) I just love their relationship. Dana is the perfect balance to him.I don't want to give too much of this book away because it is so great so I will just tell you all to read it! It is truly great. This is the first book I have been able to give five stars to since I started this blog. I loved Sirensong.

    I really liked the first 2 books in this series. I however found that I did not enjoy the 3rd book as much. I honestly think it had to do with the ending. We find Dana travelling to Fairie to meet the Queen per the Queen's invitation. There was plenty of action throughout this entire book. We did not get to see as much of Ethan's and Dana's relationship. We did get bits and pieces but I would have liked to see it grow through out this last novel. However I did enjoy getting to see Seamus (her father) grow by showing actual emotion towards his daughter instead of being so reserved.However the ending left me wanting. It was left completely open. She wnats her father's rules so she doesn't have to face telling Ethan directly she is not ready for the next step. Seriously...she can face down forces that want to kill her and come out on top but she can't just explain to her boyfriend she wants to wait. Then we truly never get closure because at the end she states how the queen of the unseelie court may still want her dead and that she could be in even greater danger now that her power is known. Seriously what kind of ending is that. It's still a cliff hanger in my opinion. I was not satisfied with that ending.Perhaps there will be a 4th book that has not been announced and that is why the open ending so the author can take it in any direction. Or perhaps the author wants us readers to come up with out on conclusion. I like my endings wrapped up in nice little neat bows and I just feel like I was let down on this one.

    Det der ærgrer mig mest ved denne bog er bagsideteksten. Den afslører utrolig meget af handlingen, faktisk beskriver den de første 2/3 dele af bogen, og det ødelagde en smule af spændingen for mig. Øv øv øv. Når det er sagt, så kunne jeg virkelig godt lide handlingen, specielt hvis jeg prøver at ignorerer beskrivelsen fra coveret. Den er spændende, og så var det virkelig spændende endelig at få lov til at opleve Faerie. Dog synes jeg Jenna Black kunne have gjort det bedre. Ikke at den verden var dårlig, men den manglede ligesom bare et eller andet der gjorde den ekstra ordinær.Dana kunne jeg godt lide, men ind i mellem blev hun irriterende og ligegyldig. Hendes far og the Erlking kunne jeg tilgengæld rigtig godt lide, begge to! De var vildt fascinerende at følge. Ethan og Keane kunne jeg godt lide, selvom de også kunne være en smule irriterende. Keane var nok min favorit. En ting der dog gik mig på nerverne helt vildt meget var konflikten mellem de to. For mig føles det mere som om forfatteren skulle have noget love triangle ind i det, og det er super ærgerligt. Spændingerne mellem de to fyre blev alt for kunstigt og irriterende.En anden ting jeg godt kan lide ved bogen, og serien generelt, er magien. Den er super fascinerende, og jeg elsker den måde den er bygget op på. Alt i alt var det en super fin bog og fin afslutning på en god serie, selvom der var et par ting der irriterede mig. Det der trækker mest ned i karakter er bagside teksten samt konflikten mellem de to fyre.

    Wow. Just wow. Faeriewalker series most certainly belongs with my all time favourite series. Only handful of series manages to get better with every other instalment and Faeriewalker series managed just that. Carefully building up the tension leading to some pretty amazing stuff.I’ve already made a point of saying that I like the characters, the premise, the world, the urban faerie thing, the sophisticated villain, the kind of screwed up relationships, style of writing, witty dialogues, Dana’s funny remarks, entertaining scenes and situations etc...Sirensong managed to preserve all that and added some pretty heavy faerie politics and magical atmosphere of the Seelie Court. It must have taken ages to find a way to untangle all that was tangled and to make it all work out while abiding all the rules established earlier. Second half of the book was never ending string of unexpected events and complicated twists.And still – when my favourite character got herself into a fatal ambush I though she has no chance of escaping (for the hundredth time) I couldn’t stop but admire some kind of poetic justice of that situation and I had to laugh at the awkwardness of it.And I loved the ending that was somewhere half-way between “happily-ever-after” and “a bunch of teenagers can’t always defeat all the evil of the world and save the day along with every single innocent life”. Or do they? :)

    Finally Black takes us into Faerie! I've been waiting for this moment since the beginning of the series and couldn't have been more excited to finally see her vision play out. While I was hoping for a little more time spent at court, the overall journey was well worth the wait.After the way things were left at the end of Shadowspell, I was on the edge of my seat even at page one to see where everything would go. With a zillion different ways Black could have rounded out this series, I think she did Dana and the rest of the gang justice.Interesting twists and turns were laid out for Dana and Ethan, Keane and Kimber, the Erl King, and just about everyone else. While I enjoyed how Black pieced everything together, I'll admit to being a little sad throughout the majority of this edition. I knew in the back of my head that it was all coming to an end. Goodbyes would be said to these unique characters, wonderful settings and dynamic situations. It may have affected me more than I anticipated while reading this time.Glimmerglass still stands out for me as the "best" of this series, but Sirensong was a fast and entertaining end to a fun series. And hey, the infamous hot posset made a final appearance, and I admit I was half tempted to whip myself one up to enjoy right along with Dana and Kimber. If you're a fan of this series, you'll no doubt be picking up a copy of Sirensong for yourself, regardless of this review, but I do think you'll enjoy it.

    Ok, so first of all, I just wanna talk about the cover real quick. This cover just makes this book seem far less creepy than the other two books, and it's not. I understand the red and white petals thing, but Dana looks a little too much like a plastic barbie to me, and I can't handle how much that annoys me.Besides that...in this book, Titania (queen of the seelie court) has invited Dana and her little entourage to the court for a little visit. The group is led by prince henry, son of Titania. He's a total idiot, and theres more trouble with all the faeriwalker crap and the Erlking and more people trying to kill Dana. I don't know why I thought this book was just sort of...eh. I really do love all the characters except the Erlking and...maybe a few other people. It's just, something just kind of annoys me a bit.Also, I didn't like the ending. (view spoiler)[I did like that she got out of the Erlkings bargain, but it just seemed too easy. (hide spoiler)] The ending just seemed too sudden for me, like something was missing...Even though this whole review has been mainly me complaining, don't be fooled, because I did sort of like this book....Just not as much as I could have.

    “Frustration and I have become good friends. And like any friend who's a bad influence, frustration sometimes makes me do things that are, in retrospect, stupid.”^Yup. In this finale on the Faeriewalker series, we see an end to the love quad-whatever it was, and the growth of some characters, including Ethan. There's a lot of running, palpable tension, and angst that gets mostly resolved. Dana, Ethan, Keane, Kimber, etc. are running through the whole treacherous land after having been invited to the Sealie Court, and of course, trouble is following them! Actually, by the end of the book, there's quite a bit of action and it all gets a bit exciting. Hurray!Dana does a few silly things, and we're left with a lot of questions, like whether or not Dana and Ethan will be okay with the choices that she has made, and why is Dana's power so special compared to other faeriewalkers, and what will happen to Dana's mom in terms of her alcoholism. The end is slightly unsatisfying, which is really too bad, because this third book actually picked up the slack from Shadowspell.
