About the Book
Title: Siren Song
Author: Alex Hayes
Series: The Chameleon Effect #3
Publication Date: October 15th 2019
Genres: Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal, Romance
Blurb: Connell Kurēn doesn’t love being a paparazzo…
He’s a member of the most scorned profession in Hollywood, but he’s good at it, and a hard-ass to boot.
He might also be called an ambulance chaser, though not for the disreputable reason he chases celebrities. Connell has the ability to heal, and at the sound of a siren, he is drawn to those in need.
Life is just fine until his pushy paparazzi nature almost gets someone killed.
Rowan Bren suffers post-traumatic stress and a permanent headache following a near-death experience at the hands of her mortal enemy. After months, she still isn’t right, but she won’t be held back from seeking her bond mate, Con, any longer.
She travels to Los Angeles motivated to help her friend, Idris, with his brilliant plan to locate their missing people. But Rowan’s top priority in the City of Angels is to find Con. She doesn’t know where he lives, but she’s not worried, because her crystal will lead her straight to him.
When she trips into his world, she finds a man so different from the person she expects, she fears he might not be Con at all. That he might be possessed by an evil force like the one that almost killed her.
Siren Song is the third novel of the Chameleon Effect series.
Review: I LOVE THIS SERIES SO MUCH!!
Honestly, this is one of the best series that I’ve read in a while where each installment really adds to the story, makes the story world richer, and really raises the stakes. We get to not just meet another Livran in this book, but he’s a point of view character! And Rowan’s bond mate! I absolutely adored Con’s character, although I did want to smack him a few times. His special Livran power is shapeshifting, but not just between Livran form and human form – he can shift into other forms as well, plus go invisible. He has made a good living as a paparazzo because he can fly invisibly and direct his partner, Azera, to exactly where she needs to go to get the best picture. It’s a pretty great combination. Too bad he absolutely hates it.
Once he finally meets Rowan and learns the truth about what they are, it takes him a while to really process it. Which I guess makes sense. It’s a lot. His crystal has already sunk into his chest, so he doesn’t have anything tangible to prove he’s from another planet, other than his shapeshifting abilities and the fact that he is drawn to Rowan more than he has to anyone else in his life.
The Evatenon are terrifying, just like in the previous books, but I do wish we knew more about them in general. They are the only parts of this series that still feel very one dimensional.
I love that Idris’s plan for contacting the other Livran kids was to embed a message in one of his songs and hope to get it produced and go viral. This gives me hope that we will get to meet even more of these characters soon because this series is far from over. I wondered if this was only going to be a trilogy, but with the way it ended, I’m pretty sure it’s not. We have to find more of the Livrans! And we have to see Cadi and Idris’s baby!
GoodReads rating: 5 stars. This series just keeps getting better!
