Sirensong is the third (following Glimmerglass and Shadowspell) in Jenna Black's enchanting - and action-packed - Faeriewalker series.

In Glimmerglass, Dana Hathaway discovered that her father Seamus is a powerful Fae and that she has the rare ability to travel between Faerie and the mortal world, bringing magic one way and technology the other. Since this makes her a valuable 'political asset' - and also endangers her life - her father has set her up in a cave deep within a mountain in Avalon, where humans and Fae coexist and their worlds intersect. She has a bodyguard, Finn, whose son Keane trains her in the martial arts.

In Shadowspell, Dana developed her romantic relationship with Ethan (her best friend Kimber's brother). She saved Ethan from the totally hot Erlking (Arawn) and his Wild Hunt by making a devil's bargain (to give him her virginity) that she is sure to live to regret.

As Sirensong opens, Dana attends a political function with her dad. Present is Henry, Prince of the Seelie Court, not a family friend. He gives them an invitation from his mother Titania that they cannot refuse - to formally present Dana at her Sunne Palace. They are to travel in Henry's entourage, with his promise of protection against Unseelie Queen Mab who has threatened Dana.

As it turns out, Ethan, Kimber and Keane accompany Dana and her father into Faerie - and trouble rides with them all the way. Dana is saved by the Erlking after an attack by Bogles, and passes a test by a Green Lady - and that's just the beginning. Dana and friends end up on the run with all of Faerie on their trail. She must take all her courage in her hands to save those she loves - and ends up forced to make yet another hard bargain.

It's a great series with plenty of room for development - I can't wait to see what's ahead for Faeriewalker Dana Hathaway and all her friends in Avalon and the worlds it intersects.
