SummaryAdd a Summary
Vanessa is dealing with her new siren-status while hiding it from everyone she loves. Her physical need for salt water overwhelms her until she finds a dangerous solution that shakes up her relationship with Simon.
I really liked this book. It was a bit more low key and angsty then the first book but equally intriguing. I felt so bad for Vanessa having to keep her secret from everyone and still try to appear normal. The seed of doubt was planted in her mind that Simon only liked her because she was a siren. That and the long-distance relationship with Simon in college and Vanessa still in high school added to the problem.
The progression of this book was rather slow in the beginning as compared to the fast action in Siren, but when it picked up I could not put the book down. The previous year, Vanessa was involved with freezing the lake and (supposedly) all the bad sirens in it. But with strange glimpses of Zara around Vanessa's home made her think that they didn't kill them for good. Vanessa's detective work to find out what really happened to the sirens under the lake turned into a scary revelation that was a perfect culmination to the book.
Along with all of her problems, Vanessa is approached by ladies-man Parker. His infatuation with her awakens the siren inside and realizes that her thirst and physical ailments are at bay when he is around. One part of this love triangle that I really appreciated was the honesty that Rayburn created at the end. I'm not going to ruin it but, what happened between Vanessa and Simon was justified, even if it made me very sad.
