Review: Lorelei's Lyric by D.B Sieders

Lorelei's Lyric (Southern Elemental Guardians Book 1)
If Lorelei sings, someone will die.

Her beautiful voice once cost a life. Still, music is her passion. What’s a mermaid to do? Run off and live vicariously through mortal musicians!

Unfortunately, gorgeous rocker Vance Idol almost succumbs to her siren call after his show in Nashville. Not that Vance cares—not since his girlfriend’s fatal overdose left him with a supersized death wish. Lorelei makes it her mission to undo the damage and help this talented and charismatic man on the eve of his band’s big break.

But saving a mortal man is a dangerous proposition. Lorelei could far too easily lose her heart, and quite possibly her immortality, during her American holiday. Bad boy Vance might be worth the risk.

Can their love survive his attitude, her fins, and an evil Pixie with a grudge against them both?

Shona's review 4 of 5 stars

I'm always drawn to the paranormal, it doesn't matter what form the main characters have, I do love my books with a twist of fantasy throughout, but I'm always eager for those books that stray from the traditional and offer me up something a little different and this is what Lorelei's Lyric did for me. 
I know there are many many Mermaid tales out there, but the truth is I haven't really ventured in that direction, so this was like a breath of fresh air for me, something different from my usual beloved vampires and witches.

I'll be honest and admit that I struggled with the first few chapters,  I'm not sure if it was because I only read one chapter in a sitting, or if I only read one chapter in a sitting because I couldn't get into the book. But I knew I could love this book, so I set aside some time and I read more than one chapter and I couldn't put the book down again until it was done. 

Sieders has found the perfect pace for her tale, the story unfolds in all the right places to keep you hooked, and offers up a couple of moments that will have you second guessing what is about to happen. This is my first time reading a book written by Sieders, but I will definitely be looking out for her other work and I cant wait to read the next instalment in this series.
