REVIEW FOR - THE SIREN - BOOK 2 IN THE SOUL SUMMONER SERIES - BY - ELICIA HYDER

pic and description taken from Goodreads

DESCRIPTION:

All the missing victims of North Carolina’s deadliest serial killer have been found, all except Rachel Smith. When the FBI produces a photo proving Rachel is alive and well in Texas, one case is closed but another one is opened. Either this is a case of mistaken identity or there are more people than just Sloan Jordan and Warren Parish who seem to walk the earth without a soul.

Along with Detective Nathan McNamara, Sloan and Warren travel south to find Rachel and solve the biggest mystery of all: determining who—or what—they really are.

The Siren is Book 2 of The Soul Summoner Series.



MY REVIEW / THOUGHTS:

***** MAY BE SPOILERS BECAUSE THIS IS BOOK 2 *****

This book was so good.  I thought the first one was good, but this one is so much better.  I really enjoy it when a series I am reading stays strong through all of the series.  Although this is only number 2, but I have a feeling there will be another one :).

Sloan has the ability to read people and to heal people.  She can automatically tell if you're a good person or a bad person.  I wish I could have this talent....for real!  

Sloan finds out more about herself, and how she has the abilities that she has.  It's a fun and exciting journey to take with her.  

This book is full of twists, and turns that kept me involved the whole time.  I love when a book grabs me right from the beginning and flows well enough to keep me from putting it down.  It just makes my heart happy.  I felt like I was with Sloan and her friends the whole time.  

The only, and I mean only bad thing I have to say about this series is that there is a love triangle, and I hate those more than anything.  I usually won't read a book if I "know" there is the possibility of a love triangle.  That is how much I dislike them.  BUT, on the flip side there were so many other fantastic things about the story that I had to keep reading to find out what happens.

If you like mystery, adventure, and eerie happenings, you will really enjoy this series.  I am only giving it 4 stars because of the love triangle.  I just really don't like them.  If that wasn't in the book it totally would have been a 5 star read.

Source:  I was given this book as part of a promotional tour.  I was not compensated in any way for this review.  These are my own PERSONAL thoughts on the books.

BOOK 1


DESCRIPTION:

Blessed–or cursed–with a connection to the souls of others, Sloan Jordan can see the best in people… and the worst. For twenty-seven years, she's kept her ability to judge the innocent from the wicked a secret, but eleven young women have been murdered in the mountains of North Carolina, and Sloan may be the only hope of finding their killer.

She has just agreed to help Detective Nathan McNamara with the case, when a stranger--who is as alluring as he is terrifying--shows up at her doorstep with a dark past and another puzzling mystery: she can't see his soul at all.

Now, Sloan is on the hunt for a deadly psychopath with two irresistible men. One of them would die for her, and the other would kill to keep her safe.
