Siren's Call by Debbie Herbert

Blood enemies, bound lovers...

He'd loved a vampire once, only to have her murdered by vengeful Freebloods.  Now to save his half–blood son from kidnappers, Garret Fox must look to another Freeblood for help. Once the empathic vampire Artemis reluctantly drinks his human blood, she cannot deny his request. But although their connection runs deep, their attraction hot, Garret can never forget what Artemis truly is.

Sharing Garret's thoughts and feelings has wreaked havoc on her emotions. Discovering a malevolent force bent on destroying everyone they both care for brings her even closer to the human. Yet as Artemis fights side by side with her lover, she is deeply conflicted. Even if they both manage to survive this evil, how can she ever hope to find a true home with a man who hates her very kind?

In ‘Siren’s Call’ we meet Lily Borsage, a siren. Lily is gorgeous and every man she meets is immediately attracted to her. Everything about Lily draws men in. And although Lily definitely likes being beautiful, being a siren isn’t easy. All woman hate her, and all the men think she’s playing with them. What they don’t know is that all that Lily want’s is to find true love. But this isn’t easy when every guy you meet doesn’t seem interested in you, but only in your body and your voice. And that’s not the only thing, she also has a secret she can’t talk to ‘normal’ people about: she is a mermaid. One day she sees a very handsome man walking around town, soon she realizes he is her old friend Nash, and he is gorgeous. But Nash doesn’t seem interested in Lily at all. Isn’t he affected by her Siren abilities? Nash has secrets of his own, and really doesn’t want the attention of another woman. But Lilly doesn’t give up quickly. This is the first book I read about mermaids. I always found mermaids fascinating but somehow never read a book about them. So I really enjoyed reading something a little different. This story immediately starts, there’s no slow introduction or getting used to the characters. From the very first page this book starts with Lily and Cash, and I really felt like I was reading this book longer than just for one page. It was a little strange to start a book like this, but it definitely made me interested in reading more. This book was definitely not what I expected. I somehow thought this book would be kind of a fairytale, but it’s written in the present and it’s about the ‘real world’. Yes, the main character is a mermaid. But most of all, she just lives in a little town, enjoys painting and interacts with people like we all do. Unfortunately I didn’t really like the main character Lily. She was just so arrogant, and although I know this is because she is a siren and has these powers.. the arrogance bothered me. Fortunately, Debbie Herbert’s writing is good enough that I really did enjoy the story, without liking the main character. I loved the mystery part in this book, the romance and above all I loved the mermaid stuff. This book is definitely a nice summer read. Nothing too complicated, but just a fun book you can read while lying in the sun.

I was all prepared not to like this book with the way the story started but was willing to give it my three chapter read through but once I got past the first chapter the character personalities evened out for me and actually turned into a really nice story. I haven't read a book like this before so that is always nice too. I was able to understand the book history even though this was part of a series so I agree with the synopsis that it can be read as a standalone. Mermaids, hot Native American man and a little crazy chick and you have your makings of a pretty spiffy book. It was a fairly decent length book but not overly long and the story was still fully thought out. I like that in a book. LOL

Siren’s Call, by Debbie Herbert, appropriately enough is being released on June 1st, 2015. I say “appropriately” because this book does, after all, feature a mermaid as its leading female character – and since summer is almost upon us, Siren’s Call will makes for a fitting beach or pool read. Siren’s Call is also the conclusion to Herbert’s Dark Seas series, but never fear – this title can still be read as a stand-alone novel. Per Herbert’s letter to the reader (prior to the beginning of this tale), Siren’s Call is sort of about redemption for Lily. While I’m uncertain how much mischief she got into in the prior two books – it is quite obvious from the very beginning of this ‘tail’ ¿ that Lily is intensely disliked in her home town. Then, of course, there’s Nashoba Bowman, aka Nash, who just returned to the Bayou and is the polar opposite of Lily. He’s dark – she’s fair. He’s brooding – she’s lighthearted. He’s well-liked by all – and she, well…as previously mentioned, she’s practically hated. The additional bad news for Lily is that she feels an instant attraction to Nash; however, Nash seems to be immune to her ‘siren’s’ charms. Lily has never before met a man who didn’t immediately want her; to say that she’s thrown for a loop is probably the understatement of the year. With that said, I’ll leave the rest of the story alone – allowing the reader to discover all the mystery, intrigue, and romance that Siren’s Call holds. In summary, Siren’s Call was a fun read. Well-written, appropriately suspenseful where needed and overall an engaging read.

A lovely end to an amazing series...A complete winner..Recommended! :) Having read and loved Debbie's previous books, I was very excited when she told me about her latest Mermaid romance, Siren's Call which is the story of Lily Bosarge. I jumped at the chance to review it and am so glad that I did.  The cover is beautiful and intriguing and the blurb further takes our interest forward and will surely make a reader take notice of the book. I had already read the stories of the other two Bosarge sisters, Shelly and Jet in Siren's Secret and Siren's Treasure  and in both these stories met Lily and with her spell casting Siren's voice and her mesmerizing beauty, she was an enigma who had intrigued me and left me eager to read her own story. Finally, in Siren's Call, Debbie tells her story and gives the readers a real insight into her character. Lily is a true siren and with all her beauty, expected to marry a merman but she wants to find true love first. Deeply loyal to her family and often misunderstood by people including her family, she finds herself yearning for true love and tired of explaining to everyone that she is not what they think, she has closed herself inside a shell. In comes Nash, a Native American and a man she met as a boy, became friends and then fell in love with but he left. Now he is back and surprisingly, not affected by her siren voice. He has a secret of his own which he does not want to disclose and is determined not to let anyone near him. But Lily is determined to try for her love one last time. Will she succeed in making Nash realize that they are perfect together? Debbie's writing style is simple, engaging and flows effortlessly making the reader live her stories. She took me to Lily's world with all the beauty of the Bayou and Nash's small cabin surrounded by the forest with its many sounds and smells. The world building is stunning and the author merges reality with fantasy so beautifully that nowhere did I feel as if something was stretched too far. The suspense, drama and danger angle is also handled admirably and I really got frightened and chilled with the mysterious killer on the loose, praying for my favourite characters' safety. This is a fast paced story with a heartfelt family drama, a sensual and heartwarming romance and the thrill of danger that kept me hooked to the book and sitting at the edge of my seat right till the end. There is suspense, paranormal developments and emotional play that had me seeing all the characters through new eyes. A definite winner, I totally enjoyed reading this book. All in all,  Siren's Call is a lovely book that I absolutely loved and strongly recommend to all lovers of romance. 4.5 out of 5 to it and I look forward to reading more from Debbie in the future. She is a very talented writer and has made a place in my list of favourite authors. This review is also available on my Blog Njkinny's World of Books & Stuff.
