en-Never Date A Siren - Byrd Nash review
College Life: Friends, Finals, and the Fae trying to kill you.
Leopold Otto University in mysterious Bewachterberg invites both humans and fae to attend. Beware though, the administration doesn't guarantee your safety!
An American college student discovers his fellow fae students operate under a different code of honor. Only if he can decipher their tangled Laws of Civility can he hope to survive the semester.
The fae dryad didn't plan on having a human roommate, but through mischance Brigit incurs a Debt Bond. Can she save Logan from a beguiler's love spell?
A fun, exciting romp in a fantasy world where fae creatures of all kinds live among us.
The College Fae series takes place at Leopold Otto University of Geheimetür, Bewachterberg -- a country that the fae hid from the world for 99 years and a day.
A siren is one of my favorite mythical creatures. This immediately took my attention and I could not resist the opportunity to read it.
I must admit that it took me some time to get into the book. I was not sucked into it from the beginning. I was kind of confused by the terms that were used and I kind of felt like I was missing information somewhere. I decided to ignore this feeling and get back into reading it until I'd finish it. And I must say it became so much better! I started to enjoy it and I was eager to find the answers that I had. It took me along its journey, and I could not put it down anymore.
I really liked Logan's character. He seemed pretty shallow at first, but the more I read the more I came to realize that he is everything but shallow. He is complicated and he has a deeper history than he shows. We see him evolving from a shy and shallow student with feelings of depression, to a grown-up student with confidence and friends.
I liked the fact that Brigit could talk to daily objects like plants and rugs etc. It brought the whole story to another level and it made it so much more interesting. It was the little details like this that really got me into the story. Brigit had a lovely character who cared more than she wanted to show people. She cared for Logan, even though she said it was because of her debt to him.
I did not like Sybil's character. She was evil and had no intentions to care for someone else's feelings. This attitude did not suit her. And she made it easy to be a hateful character. But I loved the fact that she was such a character, it gave the story a new dynamic and I found myself in a love-to-hate-her relationship.
Long story short: It took me some time to get into the story, but I could not put it down anymore, once I got into it. I loved the characters and all their perfect imperfections. I really enjoyed this read! Thank you so much Byrd Nash for contacting me! It was an honor.
