In Siren’s Song, Nym is an Elemental (one who is able to summon and control storms) who is used as a weapon by those in power for their own agenda. Each time it drains her, physically and emotionally. But as a slave, she has little control over her own life.
Her last battle with Draewulf leaves her barely alive. Now as he prepares for another battle, Nym realizes she must warn the other kingdoms before he strikes again. Is her power strong enough for the battle ahead? What about Nym’s role in the final prophecy?
Throughout this series, Weber’s storytelling engages the reader’s attention from the first page, holding until the gripping final chapter. The third installment – like the earlier ones — is filled with imperfect characters and plot twists, making it both character and plot-driven.
Sacrifice for the good of others is a strong theme in her series. The faith element is very light, but compassion and emotional strength are valued. The battle of good vs. evil is clear. For example, Nym’s Elemental power – the one she was born with — is considered good but the unnatural (dark) power is considered evil.
Recommended for teen collections in public libraries and school libraries.
