Oberon is well and truly lost, with no memory of who he is, where he came from, or where he’s going. One woman makes his palms sweat and his heart race, a woman with turquoise eyes and a beautiful voice. Instinct tells him she’s the only one who can save him.
Cassie knows the truth—he is the High King, her truebond, the one man born to be hers and hers alone. Restoring his memory and keeping him out of the Black Court’s clutches is her mission, though success means losing him. Yet to give the world back its High King, she will make that sacrifice.
As soon as Oberon’s memory comes crashing back through his mind’s closed door, he makes one vow. Though beset by enemies, chased and attacked, he will return to his rightful place with his Queen by his side.
Except when he makes good on his vow, all hell breaks loose. And when Cassie's life is threatened, the fae world will bow before the High King or pay the price in blood.
Warning: This title contains explicit sex, graphic language, fishy shenanigans and royal naughtiness.
Oberon is the High King and lord over all the Fae but treachery and avarice is stalking his court. He has been cruelly betrayed by one he trusts and now finds himself wandering the land aimlessly with no memory of how he came to be there or indeed who he truly is. He leaves behind not just those who rely on him for justice but also the one person who could bring him happiness, his Truebond, Cassie!
Cassie realised as soon as she saw him that the much feared Oberon was the one meant to complete her, but his immediate and all too apparent disdain has left her with little hope. She has spent so long trying to avoid her family and her fate in an arranged and loveless marriage that to finally be so close to happiness is devastating, but Cassie is brave and will do anything to save her Truebond. When it's discovered Oberon is missing, Cassie quickly realises the vision Shane, known as the Child of Dunne, saw is indeed coming true and it's up to her to rescue the amnesiac King. Told not to reveal too much at once, it's hard for Cassie to gain Oberon’s trust but if she doesn't the consequences will be dire!
Oo, I love this series and Siren's Song does not disappoint. Once again it's the fascinating characters and all their idiosyncrasies that capture the reader’s attention and just doesn't let go. This world is populated with colourful, larger than life characters that truly encapsulate what it means to be Fae; they are most definitely "other"! In the last book, Robin the Hob stole the show and I was curious to see if the somewhat taciturn Oberon could compete as a hero but pairing him up with a mermaid is quite simply a stroke of pure genius. This closed off male does not want to let anyone get close and yet there's just something about Cassie that gets under his skin. As for our heroine, she has the family from Hell and I'm so pleased to see her find her eventual happiness. It's not an easy journey they make, but a necessary one if Oberon is to find his way back.
This is a sensual tale but what really makes it stand out is the author’s imagination and her descriptions, vividly bring the world of the Merfolk to life. I think most imagine darkness in the murky waters but with these colourful mermaids nothing could be further from the truth and Cassie is truly a siren of the deep. Such striking imagery is used by Ms Bell, but as usual it's the Hob whose colours light up every page he is on but don't fear dear reader as Cassie is determined to add a little colour to Oberon's world, and I think he is more than ready for it!
So in conclusion, it's a satisfying read and happily there's clearly more to come. Ms Bell keeps writing strong interesting characters riddled with quirks and full of mischief. I love the humour within this book and the antics of certain members of Oberon's infamous Blades are a delight and I can't wait to read more.
