Series: Watersong #2
Amanda Hocking is back with her Watersong series as strong as the first. The characters are more deep, the stakes are raised, and the sirens are ready to kill Gemma and her family. Lullaby was completely a one stand read! Hocking knows how to enchant the reader, hook them with romance, and keep them turning the pages with action!
Lullaby picks off where Wake ended, Gemma has gone with the sirens to protect Alex and everyone close to her, while her sister, Harper is finding anything to kill the horrible sirens: Penn, Lexi, and Thea. To add more stress to Gemma, she has to learn the ropes about being a siren. It was intriguing to see how the sirens teach her how to eat, tell her more about the watersong, and swimming. As for Harper, she's finding where Gemma is and how she can stop them from hurting her. The POV from Lullaby was one that actually really worked. You get to see the story from Harper, Gemma, even Daniel and Alex in parts. Hocking definitely kicked up both her writing and composition of her books :)
Another standout in Lullaby is Gemma's independence and growing as a character. She has to deal with herself as a siren with those wants but also what she want for herself. I really liked Thea, even though she was one of the bad sirens. She helps Gemma deal with the watersong and Gemma's physical needs too. Also, Alex, Daniel, and Marcy are great characters too! I could really relate to the characters and Hocking does a great job with the pacing of the book also. It was also fun to see a semi action filled ending, though if you were expecting action and tons, there isn't much but I think it's trying to build up in each book.
I absolutely loved Lullaby and I'm already on the third book, Tidal and I am blown away with this series so far! Lullaby will definitely enchant it's readers into the world of sirens, and pick up Wake this summer! Perfect summer read!
