Review: Storm Siren by Mary Weber
I'm not sure where to begin with this book. I found the writing to be really great, though sometimes I wondered a bit why the characters talked the way they did, and swore the way they did. A bit weird, but I liked it. I found this book to be really easy and fast to read, which I loved. And I really liked the characters too.
Storm Siren is told from the point of view of Nym, whom I really liked. Well, she was a bit harsh sometimes, and didn't see things about Eogan that I found obvious, which bothered me a bit, but overall I really liked her. And I loved reading from her point of view. As Nym is pretty amazing. And oh. I'm dying to know even more about her past. Just the few small things I know so far are breaking my heart. And I love it. I love sad stories, lol. And Nym have had it pretty bad. She is a slave. And have had so so many owners, since she was five years old. It broke my heart. Yet I wanted to know more about it all the time. Ack. But yeah. Nym is all kinds of strong and amazing. She's pretty fierce. I just really enjoyed getting to know her.
Then there are all the other characters in this book. My favorite was Eogan. I loved reading his relationship with Nym, and how it grew stronger. Then shattered. Then better. And ugh. Some things annoyed me, but for the most part I really enjoyed it. And getting to know Eogan was amazing. Though he has so many secrets. And I want to know them all. I felt like he was a really amazing person. Sure, he had made some bad mistakes in the past, but I didn't blame him for that. Hmph. He was ten years old.
In the beginning of this book Nym gets sold to Adora. Whom I could not stand. She was all kinds of awful and I did not like her one bit. Ugh. Though I did like reading about her, and her house, and her parties, and everything that happened. One of all who work for her is Breck. I'm still not sure how I felt about her. Sometimes I liked her, and thought she would be a great friend for Nym. But at times I also found her to be so annoying. And I didn't like that much. Sigh. Wishing I could have loved her more, though.
But oh. Breck has a brother. Colin. And I just. I hated that he was in love with Nym. How he tried to be with her a bunch of times. Almost made this a love triangle for me, which I would have despised. But it didn't happen. And while I disliked Colin at times, I also really liked him. Because he was a great friend for Nym. And I did find him pretty cute. Sort of. I did like reading about him, either way. And I loved reading about his powers. Sigh. Those were pretty awesome to read about and I really enjoyed that.
Because, yeah. Nym is a storm siren. She can summon lightning. And control the storm. Well. Not yet. But she has that power. And I found that to be all kinds of awesome. I loved reading about her training with Eogan and Colin. Loved reading about her growing stronger and controlling her powers more. It was pretty epic. I wish to read more about it, though. I loved the color of her hair, and her eyes. I loved how she could hurt people. So awesome. Kind of horrible too. Yet I couldn't help but love it. So interesting.
There are some pretty awesome characters in this book, like I mentioned. Some I really liked. But most I really hated. Ack. But I liked reading about them all. Most I'm curious about the war that is happening. The other lands. And all the weird creatures. What does a ferret-cat looks like? And those other awful creatures. Shudders. I would really love to have them described. And read more about them. I loved those parts. I found the warhorses to be pretty creepy too, which I loved. A whole bunch of animals.
The plot in Storm Siren is exciting. I felt like I read this book pretty fast, and I wasn't bored. Sure, some things could have happened a bit faster, and I wish Nym hadn't gotten so mad, but I really liked this book. And I loved reading about Nym training. And getting to know Eogan. And the others. I really liked all the twists. Mostly I just liked this book. Though the ending was pretty mean, ugh. Which makes me happy I have book two, which I shall be reading next :) I think you should all read this book. It's good.
