Never Date a Siren (College Fae Book 1) by Byrd Nash
4 Stars

This is the first book that I have read from this author. I really enjoyed it and will definitely look for more books written by her. I thought this book was quite interesting and original. The thing I loved best was the fact that the author used less “popular” supernatural beings. There were dryads, naiads, sirens, and a bard; not the usual vampires and werewolves.

The story takes place at Leopold Otto University in a country that the Fae have kept hidden for decades. It is the only school where both human and fae attend. Brigit, à dryad princess, never thought that she would have a human for a roommate but this is the situation she finds herself in. The Fae live by a different code of conduct so when Brigit realizes Logan is in serious trouble with a siren, she needs to help him. What ensues next is a fast paced adventure of tightrope walking between debts of honour and laws of civility. Can Logan survive? This is an imaginative story filled with charming characters. It’s a definitive must read!

Never Date A Siren: A College Fae Magic Series #1 by Byrd Nash is a wonderful Young Adult fantasy and my first read from this talented storyteller. I love a good fantasy, so the title intrigued me as soon as I saw it. It is full of paranormal beings, college life, humour, a little drama, debts, bonds, challenges, honour, lessons, magic- and is a light-hearted and charming coming of age story.
By a twist of fate, Logan and Brigit become roommates. Brigit is a Fae (Dryad), and Logan a human exchange student attending the Fae university- one where both human and fae are allowed to enrol. Though not at the academy long, Logan has already fallen under the fatal spell of a cold-hearted siren. His world has been turned upside down, his grades are suffering, his life and place at the University are under threat.
Brigit keeps her head down and tries to stay off the radar. She’s definitely the mysterious one. But another twist of fate has her indebted to Logan, and through her strong sense of honour and the Fae Laws of Civility she sets about ensuring her debt is paid- by breaking the siren’s spell that is slowly draining Logan. And so, the adventure begins. Throw in a host of paranormal creatures/beings, different realms, sneaky tricks, secrets, lessons, wonderful characters, and an intriguing storyline- and this story really takes off.
Byrd Nash has world building down to a fine art- creating a intricate world that springs from her imagination and comes to life upon the pages. The attention to detail in the world building is just superb- from fae customs, laws, history, clothing, speech, and all the many other finer points- nothing gets overlooked here- all blending together into a smooth, seamless and vivid image.
This is a fantastic way to start off a new series. I am definitely invested in the characters and I can’t wait to see what they get up to in the next book!
A fun read!!!

Thank you, Byrd Nash!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Alice Will is a well-written, well-paced book. It was an easy read since it’s probably aimed below my age. Nevertheless, I appreciated the world-building and I loved the main character Trotter, who is funny and adventurous and unique. Full of action, magic and fantasy, I haven’t read fantasy for a while and loved dipping back into the genre. I loved the characters and the setting, and there was enough suspense to keep me going. An enjoyable read.

This is the first book that I have read by this author and it will not be the last. I really enjoyed this fantasy novel and the author was able to take me to a whole new world that I enjoyed. This book is YA, extremely YA. But it was nice pallet cleanser because I don’t often read alot of YA. Even being geared towards a younger audience, the author was able to hold my attention and the story line and writing were well done.
This story has action, suspense & even has a few gods that made the story that much more unique. The twist and turns were great too! I am looking forward to reading more by this author and I would recommend this to anyone that likes fantasy and YA paranormal stories!
Happy Reading!

5 Stars

Alice Will is a must read. The main character simply had me in awe. To be so young but so brave and strong. Trotter is an amazing 14 year old. Through the whole story you will be struck by how mature she is. To be this young and have so much resting on your shoulders. The author really put this story together well. I couldn’t put it away. The plot was well thought out and the characters complimented each other very well. There were some shocking moments that had me like what why. But overall it was really enjoyable to read this story. The crossing between realms was magical. The level of danger these demigods had to face to try and save the world had me on the edge of my seat. As a mom I was in a panic like lord if this was my child. To be able to create worlds that others can’t even imagine is a truly amazing gift. This is my first book by this author and I wasn’t disappointed. I’m excited to get book 2.
