Vampire apocalypse? Check.
Three mysterious hotties? Check.
Prophecy about being the ‘chosen one’? That, too.
Avery is more interested in keeping herself fed – and supplied with toilet paper – during the vampire apocalypse than she is in saving the world. But when three mysterious hotties show up and proclaim her to be the long lost descendent of a famous siren, Avery is thrust into the very adventure she didn’t know she needed.
She didn’t want a quest. She didn’t want an entourage of preternatural being – a vampire, a werewolf, and a faerie lord. And she certainly didn’t want to fall in love.
It’s the end of the world…but what if the end of this one heralds the beginning of something new?
All Avery wanted was toilet paper…what she gets is a Vampire, Lysander and an Elf/Siren hybrid, Charles. Well at first anyway.
She’s just about to get some answers when they have to run.
This is a favorite scene.
Charles rolled his eyes, not intimidated in the slightest, but he said, “I beg your forgiveness, mademoiselle, for my uncouth behaviour.” Posh and hot. I’d stepped into a Jane Austen novel. Quickly, I buttoned up my blouse and willed my cheeks to cool. “Would you guys please tell me what’s going on?” I asked. Now that I wasn’t flooded with desire, I felt embarrassed and vulnerable. Lysander was next to me in an instant. He drew me against him in a sideways hug that should have put me off, but felt comforting and right.
“I know this is strange for you, Avery,” he said, “but Charles and I are going to take care of you while we navigate the next phase of your Awakening.”
“My Awakening?” I felt like a damned parrot.
“Your transition to your true self has been thrown off course due to the Vandemic,” Charles explained. “As a result, you’re in danger of being left behind by your people as they journey to the Evermist. We’re going to help you reach them. It’s our duty and bond.”
I could only stare at him. Desire began to stir within me again. At the same time, I was starting to think I was surrounded by psychos.
“Cut that shit out,” I said.
“He’s not doing anything,” Lysander said with a chuckle. “That’s all you, love.”
“I’m not doing anything,” I protested. “And I had my period two weeks ago, so I shouldn’t feel like—”
I stopped before I could say anything even more embarrassing. The attraction wasn’t as strong this time, but still intense enough to make me squeeze my thighs together.
“It’s your siren nature responding to me,” Charles said with a smirk. “And judging from your reaction, you’re a strong siren indeed.”
“I’m not a siren,” I protested weakly. “I’m as human as they come. You’ve had your entertainment, now let me go.”
“We can’t,” Lysander said with something like regret swinging in his voice. “You’d be in danger out there now.”
“I’m in no more danger than I was this morning. The world is dangerous, full of vampires, and generally sucks. I’m used to that.”
“You don’t understand. You’re changing. I could sense it and so can others. Your Awakening is close and we need to make sure you’re safe.”
My head was beginning to hurt. “If this turns out to be a prank, I’m going to kill you. Slowly.”
Charles laughed. “I like her. She’ll fit right in.”
The guys exchanged a look.
“Later,” Lysander said, not meeting my eyes. “For now, let’s sit down and talk about your siren heritage.”
The sound of breaking glass reached my ears at the same time both men stood up straight.
“Fuck,” Charles said. “They’re already here.”
I looked from him to Lysander. “Who? Who’s here?”
“Hunters. Come on, Avery.” Charles gathered me to him. “It’s time to run.”
Skye MacKinnon; Liza Street. Song Of Blood: The Lost Siren Book 1 (Kindle Locations 246-272).
She meets Tarin, a werewolf when they arrive at his home, she also meets Tasha another siren. Avery still hasn’t accepted that she’s something other than human, that will come though.
Avery finally finds out who she is supposed to be. A Lorelei siren, one of the most powerful beings out there. More importantly they need to travel to the Evermist. However Avery must be Awakened in order to make the journey and they need to protect Avery until they get the necklace she needs to accomplish it.
Plenty of action in this one, and the sensuous flirting is seriously hot. I also got a real kick out of the computer Avery accesses while in a safe room.
Dang the ending has me wanting more, right now.
