*** I received an ARC from Kensington - Lyrical Press through NetGalley for an honest review. Expected publication date: 3/3/2015 *** 3..5 stars  June, a Siren, falls under the category of paranormal but due to things that happened in her past, she has done everything she can to live a normal life, until she and her twin, Jason, get cajoled into going to Chicago and The Institute.   Not long after they arrive things go to hell in a handbasket and June finds herself in the middle of a middle of a situation she spent her whole life trying to avoid. June was an interesting character and I can’t say that I didn’t like her, but there were quite a few moments where I had the urge to smack her.  She could go from being a snarky badass to a sullen teenager in two seconds flat, and her lack of edit button could be off putting to some, but I still couldn’t help but like her.  She just felt real.  While she was strong, she wasn’t a total badass all the time and her reactions to some things were pretty funny.  I also found it interesting how little she knew about the situation in Chicago, but it fit since she has done all she can to maintain a normal life. The rest of the cast of characters: Jason, Micha, Sam, Cindy, Muse, Robbie, Serendipity et al.  All made the story fun to read, especially Cindy,  They also served to give the world more depth because of the different roles they occupied in  it.  While this book/series is touted as paranormal romance, I’d classify it more as urban fantasy.  There is a romantic element and a few sexy moments, but  it’s not the main focus of this book and there are still a few things up in the air when it comes to that relationship, though I wouldn’t put it in total cliffhanger area.  Overall, I  enjoy this book, there were times it dragged due to the authors attention to detail, which was not a bad thing and I believe others may enjoy it quite a bit, so I’m looking forward to seeing what comes next for the Siren and her cohorts.

Sorry, normally this sort of plot would appeal to me. But I could not get past the awkward, overwritten style. :(

I should say first of all that I don’t normally read steamy romances, and since a big part of the story falls into this environments, I’m afraid a have to confess it didn’t’ really do anything for me. But fortunately, other elements of the story are more SF, more adventure and even more mysteries, and I enjoyed these quite a lot. My favourite part is the political plot. I really enjoyed the kind of society depicted in this novel, a society where paranormal people exist, live in among normal people and are discriminated against and feared. So political movements arise to take down the paranormals on one side, or fight for paranormal people’s rights on the other and the general environment sounds very realistic to me, not to mention ripe for a lot of action to happen. June, the protagonist and a reluctant paranormal, is in the more interesting position to tell this story. She is a siren, someone who can control people with the power of her voice, had escaped the lab where she and her twin brother were studied like guinea pigs and now has joined forces with the ‘rebels’ to try and save her brother. The pace is a bit slow in places, but overall it’s a fun read.

**I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review** June Coffin has what the scientists call a hypnotic voice phenomenon, or an invasive persuasion. June's twin brother's name is Jason and they are both sirens. June saw Micha Bellevue give a lecture at the Chicago Institute for Supernatural Research. She had been held captive there but broke out. June needed to get out of Chicago but couldn't until she got Jason out of the institute where he was being held captive. Micha was a paranormal activist but still believed in the institute. June is staying at Cindy's house while she tries to figure out a way to rescue Jason. Cindy's friend Robby is telepathic and also a powerful telekinetic. Cindy and Robby take June to see Sam Haain. he is the leader of the Paranormal Alliance. Sam has all kinds of connections within the city. Using an Oracle of Death, they are told not to go to the institute but to have him brought out in public instead and for him to get to Ethan Roberts. Ethan Roberts is the lead paranormal reporter for the Tribute. There is also the Secular Normalists of Chicago, a dastardly force that is spreading misinformation and blatant ignorance about paranormals. I feel June loves her brother and is very determined to rescue him even at the cost of her own life. Yet she's also very attracted to Micha although she also feels guilty as his wife was recently murdered trying to help June and Jason escape. I thoroughly enjoyed this story. There are a lot of turns that June goes through. I like the way the book ended. I would recommend the book to anyone that enjoys paranormal books.
