I'm one of the publishers of All About Romance. I love reading romance, as well as mysteries, fantasy, history and historical fiction, and all kinds of other things. Staying on Goodreads for now but trying this out in case I decide to switch.
There are some books I recommend because they charm me and I absolutely adored every moment of reading them. However, "endearing" is not an apt word to describe The Siren because while some portions of the story were very moving, other parts will likely make readers extremely uncomfortable or even angry. Yet the writing in this book is near flawless most of the time, and the author shows great insight into her characters and their world. Even at the times when I couldn't entirely enjoy this book, I could greatly respect the writer's skill and the artistry of what I read.This is a partial review.
