Review: Dark Siren by Eden Ashley

Dark Siren by Eden Ashley 
The Dark Siren Series 
Book 1 


To survive, their bond must be unbreakable. 

When the mysterious and passionate Rhane rescues Kali from an attacker in the theater parking lot, they form an immediate, smoldering connection. But Kali doesn't remember Rhane or anything from their past. As far as Kali knows, she's just a seventeen-year-old kid coping with an insatiable hunger for the “spark” or energy of others, feeding on classmates to survive.

A unique artifact—one that may hold the key to returning Kali’s memories—is uncovered by the archaeology firm where she works part-time, sending Kali and Rhane on a dangerous journey that leads them to the Forbidden City, into the unforgiving Gobi, and into the ruins of Rhane’s ancient homeland. As they fight for survival, Kali begins to discover who she really is and the true power she possesses. 

But Rhane still harbors a secret that could destroy Kali…unless old enemies kill her first.


Honestly I have mixed opinions about this book. There were things that I liked and then there were a couple things I didn’t like about this book.

This is a different Paranormal Romance book that I have read. I was nervous at first not knowing if I was going to enjoy it but I liked the book a lot more than I thought.

The main character is amazing! Kalista, aka Kali is not your typical teenager. She is beautiful and stunning but she has some issues mainly with her knowing that she isn’t normal either, but she doesn’t exactly know what she is at the same time. It completely freaks her out that she needs to satisfy her hunger by feeding off the energy of others.

Rhane, enters the picture randomly showing up and saving Kali while at the movie theatre. You immediately know that Rhane knows her somehow but you don’t find out until much later in the book.

I really enjoy how the story starts out with Kali somewhat knowing that she wasn’t normal. The pace moved quickly in that sense. However, I feel like the author could have talked more about Rhane and what he really is a lot sooner in the book than  the author did. The pace sort of slowed down because it didn’t tell the reader for so long. On top of that, it made it slightly confusing since the reader is left guessing for most of them book. Then when you do find out, there are so many unanswered questions because the author didn’t go into more detail. I am really hoping to learn more in the next book to this series.

I enjoyed the character and really wanted to learn more about them and where the story will take them. I am looking forward to the next book in the series even though I was hoping to already know more about Rhane.

Rating: 4/5

About the Author:

Born and raised in a small sunny town in South Carolina, Eden finds thunderstorms to be inspiring. There are few things she loves more (except maybe cake) than curling up with a good book on a rainy day, often reading into the wee hours of morning when something really grabs her. DARK SIREN is her exciting debut novel. BANEWOLF and BLOOD CHAINED, both available on Amazon, continue Rhane and Kali's exciting journey into the unknown. Look for PRIMED SON, the conclusion of their story, November 2015.
