~ Review by Angela ~
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*
I read the first book in this series for this blog tour and I am so glad I did. I really enjoyed the story as it is a very different type of story. There are so many different creatures in the story of Jacob & Emilia. The imagery is very vivid and you feel transported to these lands and places along with the beings. This is a really good young adult series but I didn’t feel as though I was reading a young adult book. The characters are mature and don’t tend to be whiny or adolescent in behavior. There are a lot of things that happen in these stories so it keeps you reading and interested. Lots of action and suspense, with plenty of twists and turns. The author does a great job with not over complicating the issues or leaving so much out that you are confused as to what is happening. I think that anyone who enjoys a good fantasy story with many mythical creatures and lots of action will enjoy this series, no matter their age. I give The Tethering and The Siren’s Realm 5 books each.
