Book 2 in The Storm Siren Trilogy
Copy- ARC received from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for review

Nym has saved Faelen only to discover that Draewulf stole everything she valued. Now he’s destroyed her Elemental storm-summoning ability as well.
When Nym sneaks off with a host of delegates to Bron, Lord Myles offers her the chance for a new kind of power and the whispered hope that it may do more than simply defeat the monster she loathes. But the secrets the Bron people have kept concealed, along with the horrors Draewulf has developed, may require more than simply harnessing a darker ability. They may require who she is.Set against the stark metallic backdrop of the Bron kingdom, Nym is faced with the chance to change the future. Or was that Draewulf’s plan for her all along?

My Rating: 8.5/10

My Review: *This review contains spoilers for the first book, Storm Siren, but not this book*
The first book in this trilogy completely drew me into Nym's world, and I was absolutely crushed by the cliffhanger ending!  I just knew something was going to happen to Eogan, but I wasn't happy to be proved right.
Siren's Fury picks up right where the first book ended, leaving Nym to figure how, if possible, she can save Eogan.  There were a lot of things I didn't see coming in this book, and a lot of unlikely friendships.  I like when a book can surprise me, and Siren's Fury did a great job with that...
Nym really grew as a character in this book, and though there were a few times she got a little out of control, she eventually overcame her struggles.  I think I liked her a little better in this book; mostly because she spend less time feeling guilty and more time kicking ass.
As for the plot, it is very fast-paced!  There isn't a dull moment in this book, and there's a lot more action than the first, which is a definite plus for me.  I felt like there was a more clear plot and conflict in this book, which helped it flow a lot better.
Overall, this was a solid sequel to a kickass first book, and I am beyond excited to see what happens next in the last book!  I recommend this book to all you fantasy lovers who want a strong lead and lots of action!
