Siren Song


Loved it! 😍

Siren Song is a beautifully written follow-up story to the second installment within The Chameleon Effect series by Alex Hayes.

At first glance, if it looks like a human and talks like a human, you wouldn’t generally assume that it would be anything other than human, right? Now, if you saw someone with an ability to do things that were unnatural or completely morphing into something with scales, what would you think then? Would you think that they were still human? Hayes will continue to entertain, mystify, and captivate readers in the third installment of The Chameleon Effect series.

Rowan has now partially settled in with Cadi and the Jacobsen's, but there is just one thing missing. Her bond mate Con, or at least that is the name she called him when they were kids, before Mr. Skrim separated them and forced them into multiple foster homes. Some had it good, like Cadi, but hers not so much. While Cadi is unable to do much these days with a baby on the way, Idris invites Rowan out to LA to find Con, short for Conathar. The story is primarily their adventure as they find their way back to each other, but things are rarely ever easy, right? There always seems to have to be some blood, sweat and tears that go into even those who are destined to be together. As Rowan gets closer to Con, there are secrets and with the darkness still looming over their kind, Rowan knows that another mission awaits for her and her new family of Livran. The only question is if Con fits into that picture by her side or not.

Hayes has a gripping story, filled with creativity, originality and fascinating characters. This story is one that will grab the reader from the beginning and lure them further into a depth of adventure and magic. Hayes has well-developed characters that are captivating and likable. The only qualm with the context is that it does break consistency and throw Idres in as a main focal point around halfway through instead of remaining Rowan and Connell's story. The story is very well-written with little to no spelling or grammatical errors. One of the best aspects of this story is the learning curve that these characters have to face in order to survive. The strength that Hayes conveys regarding the desire to forge the Livran community on Earth is impeccable and perfect for a young adult audience. Depending on the audience, some may be perturbed about a teenage pregnancy, but if you factor in that this is supposed to be another race of people who are fighting extinction, the reader should be fine with acceptance. If you are a reader of young adult fantasy and paranormal fiction, you may want to pick up this third installment; however, since it is a direct continuation of the previous installment, it is recommended to read through the second book called Perfect Pitch prior to diving into this one.

An electronic copy of this book was provided to Turning Another Page by Reedsy Discovery and in no way affects the honesty of this review. We provide a four-star rating to Siren Song by Alex Hayes.
