Siren's Song (The Storm Trilogy) by Mary Webber

Book Description:  “The realization hits: We’re not going to win. It’s why I couldn’t defeat Draewulf in Bron—because this power was never mine anyway. I drop my arms and let the energy die off. And turn around to Face Eogan.”
After a fierce battle with Draewulf, Nym barely escaped with her life. Now, fleeing the scorched landscape of Tulla, her storm-summoning abilities are returning; only . . . the dark power is still inside her.
Broken and bloodied, Nym needs time to recover, but when the full scope of the shapeshifter’s horrific plot is revealed, the strong-willed Elemental must race across the Hidden Lands and warn the other kingdoms before Draewulf ’s final attack.
From the crystalline palaces of Cashlin to the legendary Valley of Origin, Nym scrambles to gather an army. But even if she can, will she be able to uncover the secret to defeating Draewulf that has eluded her people for generations? With a legion of monsters approaching, and the Hidden Lands standing on the brink of destruction, the stage is set for a battle that will decide the fate of the world.
This time, will the Siren’s Song have the power to save it?

My Thoughts:    I was a little perplexed by the title, "Siren's Song" so I looked up the word siren.  I was surprised to find out that a siren is from Greek mythology.  A siren was a beautiful but dangerous creature, one who lured sailors to ship wreck by their enchanting music and voices.  
After finding out about a siren, I began to read this story.  I didn't read the first two books in this series and I think it's a must to read the other two stories first....because this is the conclusion.
Even though this isn't the type of reading material I would choose, I must say that this is one fast paced read.  And the author does a great job with description.  
The reader can probably tell by the book cover that this is story is labeled as christian fantasy.  
To tell the truth I have a hard time reading fantasy...any kind.  I just don't enjoy it.  It seems too made up to me.  
Even though this is a well written book, I just couldn't "get into the story."
This is book for this christian fantasy readers.  And it has a grand ending!
