Siren's Song by Karen Chance
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
In an effort to completely complete both the Dory series and the Cassie series, I ended up diving into what is referred to as a novella but is really the length of some novels. This story tells Pritkin’s side of what I previously read from Dory’s perspective. As expected, this is full of insane action, a stupid amount of mind and time jumping, and more damage than you get in a Jim Butcher novel.
Pritkin is dealing with a lot in the fallout from his having survived the most deadly curse out there from the demons. His mind, it turns out, is working through some stuff and has been sending him on sleep-magic-ing mayhem and uncovering previously covered up memories at the same time. To make matters worse, there’s been attacks, war, and just general badness going on. So roll all that together with some mind control spell cast on all his mage allies, and you get where we start here.
Pritkin ends up befriending the most random of magical characters, stumbling upon vampire drama, but ultimately doing what he does best - beating things up or blowing them up. This story is exactly what you’d expect from a Pritkin novella but, honestly, can be skipped over without any issue (as shown by me being able to read the next Cassie book then circling back here when I caught up with Dory’s story). It was nice to see how he feels about Cassie, but just ended making my head hurt with even more time jumping and memory stuff to keep straight.
