She lives in a world where being different can be deadly – and her white hair marks her as not only different, but unique. Nymia has spent fourteen years at the whims of slave owners, paying in blood and pain for the guilt that suffocates her. But a twist of fate has landed her in a new situation…train to harness her strange abilities for the defense of the kingdom of Faelen or die. Nym must decide between blind obedience and following her instincts, which could mean laying down her life for the first friends she’s ever known.
Storm Siren is a debut novel for Mary Weber. The story is smoothly written, swiftly inviting the reader into the mythical world of Faelen, with its peculiar customs, creatures, and concerns. Reading this book became, for me, like looking through a glass darkly – I saw shadows of the world around me, yet clothed in a much more outré package. And, like our own world, it all boils down to love and forgiveness. It was fantastical and intriguing, and I’m looking forward to the next installment in the series.
