Book #66: Lullaby by Amanda Hocking


Now that Gemma Fisher has inherited Penn, Lexi, and Thea’s curse – and all the strange new powers that come along with it – she has no choice but to run away with them. Devastated that she has to leave everyone she loves behind, she’s still determined not to give in to the unspeakable hungers that plague her.
Unfortunately, they’re growing stronger every day, and she’s not sure how much longer she can resist.

Harper won’t give up on finding her sister Gemma, vowing to get her back no matter what the cost. The search draws her closer to too-gorgeous-for-his-own-good Daniel, and tests her fiercely guarded independence like never before. She’s always been the strong one who everyone else depends on…. Can she let herself depend on Daniel?

As Gemma and Harper plunge deeper into a magical world they barely understand, it becomes painfully clear that Gemma’s old life may be lost forever. But can she still hold on to her humanity?

Lullaby¬†is the second book in the Wakesong series by Amanda Hocking. I do like Amanda Hocking’s work and I have quite a bit of a collection of her works. However, I didn’t quite care for this book.

It had been about a year since I read the first one, but it was easy to get back into the story’s world. That said, I found this book to be slow. You get a little bit of information, for instance you learn what the girls are (which we technically already knew in the first book). And you do see what happens if one of the sirens decide not to eat. However, that’s basically it.

There isn’t much action in the book and most of it is either moping or flipping through library books. The climax was an attempt at action that ended on a good note. The characters didn’t really evolve much. Though Harper is beginning to show an interest in finding romance.

Sooo, yeah, I felt this book was not the best Hocking book. It was a quick read, a one day one sitting kind of read. I do have the other two books and I can only hope that they will progressively get better. After all, there’s a hint that Daniel has something going on that’s paranormal in nature.
