Overall, I really enjoyed this book. The author did a fantastic job of developing the main characters and building the relationships between Lula and Alex, and even Comus and Rath. The story line was very engaging and I didn’t want to put it down.

Where it fell a little short for me was in the development of the secondary and tertiary characters, like Lula’s siren sisters. So much of the story hinges on Lula’s relationship with them, but I really didn’t feel like I ever got to know them. That made it difficult for me to emotionally connect with Lula later in the story.

As a whole, though, I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who enjoys light fantasy novels. ( )

Overall I really enjoyed My Song's Curse. While demons, gods, and sirens aren't new territory in the books I ready Minnix does a great job keeping the characters and mythology fresh and interesting. Lula is a character you can relate to without seemingly overly Mary Sue-esque, which could have easily happened. Alex and his friends are tons of fun to read about. I'll definitely be waiting for book two.

I think I've got a case of godlust now...

Overall this book was fabulous! Sirens, demigods, otherworldlings...I'm sold! Sign me up for the next book already. The two POVs flowed well with each other, alternating chapters. I enjoy when multiple POVs are used as it adds a nice depth to the story line, then I don't feel like I'm missing anything. The banter between both Alex and Lu is great, I really enjoyed the course of their relationship.

Now, the nitpicky stuff. The writing felt...clunky at times. I felt like I was tripping while trying to run over the words of this story because the anticipation made me want know what happened next. I just wish the writing was more...seamless. Now, I know I said I enjoyed the course of Alex and Lu's relationship and I did! BUT, how many times do they really need to go back and forth? No, I just can't! Oh wait, yes I can! No...I can't! It was really the worst part for me. Thankfully, they got over that!

With all that said, I am definitely looking forward to the next book :)

Thank you LibraryThing and City Owl Press for providing me an advanced e-copy to read and review honestly. ( )

Being a siren sucks.

Every customer stares at me in attentive silence as I sit at the least conspicuous table in the back corner of this mom-and-pop Italian restaurant.

Well, excuse me for clearing my throat.

Going out in public wasn’t the best idea, but this afternoon, I held a heated conversation with the actors on my television. They apologized to each other with caresses and phrases of sweetness, but I ended up on the floor, hugging a pillow in the empty silence. When a show becomes my reality, it’s time to leave the house.

Now, as usual, I’ve enthralled the humans. Whoops. They study me as if the next thing I do will make their lives complete. The attention is normal, but I’m the last being they should covet, because there’s much more to my species than being a lust magnet. A few more words from my hypnotic voice and they’d lick my shoes if I asked them to. Not that I would.
