Thank you to Entangled Teen and NetGalley for my gifted DRC in exchange for my honest review.
Colt Clemmons is an agent in a specialized division within the Bureau of Investigation—one that hunts down not just mobsters, but also monsters.
For reasons that are kept top secret, Colt is the only person who can resist a siren’s voice. But he’s never had a chance to test this ability. The last siren left in the world mysteriously disappeared years ago.
Then one night, with a single word, she reveals herself. It seems too good to be true.
And it is. Because nothing about this siren—her past, her powers, or her purpose—is what it seems…
I wanted this book to totally grip me. I assumed it would because of the synopsis. And, while it was in no way a bad or unreadable book, I just didn’t feel the pull towards the characters or the story.
Eris is a siren. Colt is an investigator who hunts down monsters… He is immune to Eris’s ability and when he goes into the smoky club she works at to take her down, he assumes that she is just another monster. Soon, he learns that she is just a girl with a powerful ability that she takes no joy in using (unless of course it is to make abusive men stop hitting their wives). Along with getting to know her better, the two find it very hard to fight the physical attraction. Soon, he is only wanting to protect the girl. In their travels, they uncover a twisted plot involving a vampire and her experiments on children, among fighting off a cast of other supernatural creatures.
This was fun, but it just didn’t wow me.
