Review: Light Of Lorelei
Light Of Lorelei by Jen Minkman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This book really begins to take the Tales of Skylge to the next level. In the first book we saw the beginnings of a rebellion on the island and some Romeo and Juliet type love story. This tale takes the next step and introduces us to some even more surprising relationships.
Aska is a temple girl who has been "sentenced" to life serving the Baeles-Weards because she was born from the forbidden union between an Anglian and Skylger. She has started to doubt her teachings and each new piece of evidence makes her even more skeptical. While on one of her solitary beach walks, she meets a young fisherman named Tjalling. These two have chemistry from the start and Aska has finally found herself an ally that begins her tumble into real rebellion.
After some shocking attacks from the sirens, Aska knows she must act. She teams up with Enna and Royce to help free the imprisoned Light of Lorelei. There is a lot of shocking revelation and some pretty sneaky twists and turns. The story just keeps getting better and better! I can't wait to see where all these characters end up and what happens to this divided island.
