I had read Wake, the first book in the Watersong
Series and although I didn't really love it that much, I
still want to know what happens next to Gemma and Harper,
and LULLABY provided a very nice second book.
Gemma is now powerful, stronger and more beautiful, she can
even turn into a mermaid. But this new life also costs her,
her family and her normal life. Struggling not to become
monsters like her new sisters, Penn, Thea, and Lexi, proves
to be difficult especially that being a Siren requires
killing people for survival. Can she really resist the sea
and the new her, even if her hair's falling out?
Harper will not be stopped until she gets her sister back.
With the gorgeous Daniel at her side, who seems to be immune
to the Sirens, and Alex, together they'll find clues which
not only will bring them to Gemma but opens up to more
questions. Will she also find the courage to finally figure
out what Daniel means to her? Can she bring back her
sister after she finds out the truth about what Gemma has
Unlike Wake, LULLABY delves deeper into each characters
psyche, we still have the POV's of Gemma and Harper, but
it's mostly onto Harper. We get to know Harper better, how she
loves Gemma like her own child, how she struggles with her
feelings for Daniel, thinking that love isn't meant for her.
Seriously?!, this couple is the cutest I've ever seen.
They're love for each other is true, the chemistry is there
although they're not officially in the relationship.
Whenever they are on the same page, the pull is kinda
magnetic and electric.
Gemma's character also has developed a lot, she now
considers what her actions could do to the people she loves,
and realize what she's become and struggles to keep her
morality. The boys, Daniel and Alex also have mysteries
surrounding them, though we could find that out in the next
book. Marcy appears again, and her snarky comments still
define her. I wish Nathalie appeared more on here; I miss
her just as the sisters missed her.
The story is more on transition, there are not many action
scenes, but we discover some mystery and are left with more.
We're given knowledge about the mythology in this book, the
siren ways and the curse. The writing is quick though; the
conversations and scenes are lively and do not drag on. And
the ending is a cliffhanger, like expected and it did a good
job of making me want to have the next book.:D
I will read the next book in the series and hopefully will
figure out some of the questions running in my head,
especially what's so special with the Boys of Capri. If
you're a fan or just intrigued with Amanda Hocking, you
should give this series a try!
Harper only wanted a safe, normal life. But when her younger
sister Gemma runs off with a dangerous clique of beautiful
girls, Penn, Thea, and Lexi, everything changes. Vowing to
get her sister back no matter what the cost, Harper must
face dangers unlike any she's ever experienced. Fortunately,
she has Daniel by her side, a gorgeous guy who's devoted to
helping her find her sister—and who's immune to the girls'
While Harper searches for her sister, Gemma struggles to
adjust to her new life. Gemma's powers are growing by the
day, and the longer she lives with her new "sisters," the
harder it is to resist entering their magical world. It's a
realm both dark and beautiful, and where she's plagued by
strange hungers and unspeakable needs. Just as she's
drifting far away from her old life, Harper and Daniel find
her...but no one can deny how much she's changed. All she
wants is to return to her family and the mortal world, but
how can she do that when she's become something else
entirely—and will they still love her once they learn the truth?
Prepare to fall under the spell of Lullaby, the second book
in the Watersong series from New York Times bestselling
author Amanda Hocking.
