Blog Tour: Call of the Siren by Rosalie Lario

I received a copy of Call of the Siren in exchange for my review.

Dagan, half-demon half-siren, has a reputation, even with his brothers, one that he doesn't want to have around Lina, the beautiful adopted sister of one of Dagan's half-brothers. Having suffered greatly as an addict, angel Lina, has been clean for 2 years and now works as a mercenary, and is now helping her adopted brother Roman to track down the dark fae that he and his brothers have been sent after. But when she is used as a porn against Ronin, it is hard on all four of the brothers, particularly when they learn that their father, Mammon, is involved. For the first time in his life Dagan wants to be a one woman man, and will stop at nothing to save Lina before it is too late.

I feel like I have come to the Demons of Infernum series far too late, and unfortunately only read Call of the Siren and Heart of the Incubus, though I loved them both. The richness of the characters and the storyline really captured my attention, and I especially liked that the characters were far more complex than just bad and good.

Though the main story in Call of the Siren revolved around Dagan and Lina, the rest of Dagan's brothers also got time developing their characters, and it felt like they were complete and three dimensional as well as the two central characters. The other thing surrounding characters that I particularly liked was the fact that the female characters were portrayed as just as strong as the male characters, most notably Lina, though Amara had her moments too.

There were plenty of action scenes in Call of the Siren to keep the reader on the edge of their seats, and there were a few moments where I did worry about the fate of the characters and whether or not they would actually survive. It was also interesting how the powers of the different brothers were written in (all 4 of them were half breed demons but with different 'species' of mother, i.e. Dagan - Siren, Keegan - Dragon Shifter, Taeg - air sylph I think, Ronin - angel), it certainly kept things interesting.

And the ending, considering that this was Dagan and Lina's story I thought that the ending was perfect, I wouldn't have wanted it to end any other way for them!

Tagline: When darkness threatens...only love will bring them light

Synopsis: The half-siren half-demon bounty hunter Dagan Meyers swore he'd never settle down. His older brothers might’ve adjusted well to family life but tying himself to one woman is so not Dagan’s bag. Until he meets the gorgeous angel Lina, his brother Ronin’s long-lost adopted sister, and he can’t think of being with anybody but her. Too bad Ronin’s well aware of Dagan’s party-boy lifestyle and won’t let him anywhere near his angelic baby sister.

Lina is still getting over the abandonment issues that began when she was orphaned as a child and has devoted her life to taking down evil Otherworlders. The last thing she wants is to develop feelings for man she knows will eventually leave her, too. But as the battle against a growing darkness continues—a powerful fae who’s harnessed untold power—Dagan and Lina find that love may be their greatest weapon against the very thing that threatens to destroy them all.
