#BookReview of Siren Spell by @cidneyswanson

Siren Spell


About the Book: 

All Giselle Chekhov cares about is securing the principal role in the ballet for which she was named, but her Russian grandmother warns that the ballet, featuring cruel siren-like maidens, will draw the vain creatures back to town. Every decade or so, sirens swarm to Foulweather, Oregon killing indiscriminately and then vanishing again. At the same time that her dreams for the stage are falling apart, Giselle begins to suspect just who the sirens are really after.

About the Author: Hi there! My name is Cidney and I'm a full time writer of young adult science fiction and fantasy novels. I'm easily distracted by shiny things such as new book covers, macarons in glass jars, and Mars set against an inky night sky. My year so far has included learning to milk goats, baking thirteen pies for friends who wanted Wedding Pie instead of Cake, and finding myself speaking before a large group while wearing navy tights with a black dress. (My dress wasn't navy???) If you'd like to visit, I hang out at cidneyswanson.com where I natter on about this and that, assuming I haven't been distracted by something shiny. I live in Oregon's Willamette Valley with my husband, three kids and two cats and entirely too much rain.

Notes and Opinions: I can honestly tell that a lot of research went into this book. I did ballet as a little girl and a semester of it a few years back and some of the terms used I didn't even know. I had to google them! Her characters are wonderful too. They feel so real. And her storytelling is just so beautiful. You feel bad for Giselle and the crap she has to go through, but she grows because of it. The climax of the book felt complete. It doesn't leave you hanging, which is great because most books do.
