    1 thought on “Echo of a Siren

    1. This fast-paced story appealed to me on many levels. First, the author gets the readers' attention by the end of the very first paragraph. She introduces two friends, Greg and Jake, and states that something happened the night they went fishing that left Jake dead. Don't worry, no plot spoilers anymore, and if you read the first two sentences of this book, you will already know that Jake will be dead. The author told us. But that's just a small part of the mystery, the intrigue, and the appeal o [...]

    2. Echo of A Siren by Sonya Dodd is another wonderful romantic read.Rachel is a siren and in life was wronged in many ways. Greg's world is turned upside down one stormy night and Rachel spares his life although she doesn't understand why yet.As she fights against the siren within her, she finds herself protecting Greg and having feelings she shouldn't have. Will the Siren Council allow this love to happen? They lure men to their murky deaths and destroy them, they do not love them.As the story fro [...]

    3. In this book, that follows Siren call, there is a bit of real romance, a bit of pathos, and bit of fantasy and a bit of sadness. It deserves a five star review for all of the above.

    4. A story with a couple of new twists and an ending that has the reader reacting. Reacting in what way? You will have to read to find out. I have no intention of playing spoil sport.It is an interesting story and the book is written tautly enough to keep the reader hurrying through to the end, and then wondering, Hullo, have I actually finished this book?In other words, a book worth a read.

    5. I’d recently discovered the romance genre several books prior to reading Echo of a Siren. These were not classic romance novels; rather, they were all a combination of suspense, action/adventure or thriller with romantic overtones. Now I can add another mix to that list… horror/paranormal-romance. Easy to do as “sirens” are monsters, the same as vampires, succubi and demons are paranormal and monstrous beings.Ms Dodd has created two wonderfully detailed and three-dimensional characters i [...]

    6. Echo of a Siren by Sonya C. Dodd is a fantasy romance about a young man named Greg who is rescued from drowning by a revengeful mermaid. It is also an unusual courtship between two loners swirling in tragic circumstances. Greg accompanies his foolish friend Jake on an ill-advised boat ride into a ferocious storm. The waves capsize the craft and plunge the men into the unforgiving sea. The lovely siren Rachel, who gave up her human life to instead seduce and kill men floundering in the ocean’s [...]

    7. The secret of writing, well there are a lot of secrets, but foremost among them is pace. If you are describing a view from the deck of a fishing boat, how many lines do you take: two, four, twelve? Twenty? There is no answer to this question. The good writer knows when it's time to move from description and get on with the story. That's pace and that's what gives Sonya Dodd's writing its compulsion.This is the second book I have read by this author and in this sequel to Siren Call - astutely tit [...]

    8. "Echo of a Siren" by Sonya C. Dodd is a follow up novel to her fantastic "Siren Call". This book focuses entirely on Rachel, the Siren. "Siren Call" was about her effect on one particular family, now we see the world from her point of view and are taken to the world of Sirens.There is however a minor change of plan that comes when Rachel falls for one of her victims. Her love is in conflict with the order of the Sirens and needs to be resolved one way or another.As far as fantasy books are conce [...]

    9. Although this is a sequel, it works well as a stand-alone, as I have not read Dodd's first book. I enjoyed this story, and looked forward to seeing how it would work out. It works very well as a romance and mystery, and follows the sad consequence of a sole survivor of a storm none of the victims had any business being caught in. It's a very entertaining and engaging story. Although there were some explanations, at times there could have been a bit more to let the reader truly believe why - such [...]

    10. This book was a great story about a young man that lost his best friend but gained a woman all in the same night. The woman was not like any other woman - she's a siren. The author added some of the typical siren traits but put a spin on her. I actually began liking Rachel as the story went on. Greg never grew on me but I'm sure it was because his story was very sad. I can't imagine living the life he had to deal with after his best friend died. I had to read it with breaks in between chapters b [...]

    11. Conquering the SirenIn Echo of a Siren, by Sonya Dodd, Rachel is a great villain. After four years as a Siren, Rachel can be single-minded in her mission, while at the same time, she has thoughts and feelings of compassion.Greg’s best friend Jake drags them both out into a fierce storm. When Jake loses his life, Greg is set on a path of guilt, betrayal. After he’s rescued by Rachel, Greg both loves her and fears her.As with all of Ms. Dodd’s well-written tales, Echo of a Siren transports t [...]

    12. An enticing story that pulled me in from the beginning - though it's a sequel to a book I also enjoyed, Siren Call. Echo of a Siren explores the Greek siren legend further in the modern day - and the dilemmas when a modern girl becomes a siren.Like Siren Call, this book uses varying perspectives which change from paragraph to paragraph, which can be confusing, though there are fewer perspectives in this book and a better story. I felt the ending left things too much up in the air, evidently pavi [...]

    13. Author Sonya Dodd has done it again. After reading and loving her book, Siren Call, I couldn’t wait to read Echo of a Siren and I was not disappointed. Dodd has crafter another beautifully written tale that keeps the reader guessing. Greg is an intriguing character that has much to overcome. And Rachel, the complex siren draws us into the story like you’d imagine a siren to do. As lovely as the writing is in the book, don’t be fooled, it moves, it surprises and takes you on an emotional ri [...]

    14. I hadn't read the previous book on Sirens, so this sequel crept up on me and lured me in like the Siren herself. There are some strong descriptive passages which worked effectively and I would have liked a little more of these spread through the story. The plot held together well all the same and kept me reading right through.There seemed an over use of colons in the first chapter which I found distracting but the text started to flow once these were dropped.I didn't see the ending coming so tha [...]

    15. Having read Siren Call I was looking forward to reading the second novel in the trilogy. Echo of a Siren certainly doesn’t disappoint! In fact I think I preferred it to the first.This book takes the story of the siren, Rachel, in a totally unexpected direction and introduces Greg into her world.Having got used to the idea of what makes a siren tick in the first book, this was a surprising twist which also contained lots of excitement and thrilling episodes.Having read the first two novels in t [...]

    16. This review is written by Nic's wife.I read a different novel of Sonya Dodd's, a little bit back, and thought it had potential, but saw some problems. Gave this one a try, and I'm glad I did. The story is much tighter, and the writing flows much more smoothly. It's still not entirely my type of story, but it was a pretty solid reading experience. Not too much steam to the romance, understandable characters The opening felt a little choppy to me, but once I got past that, it was a very fast read. [...]
