In the mysterious world of Harmony, there are places filled with unexplored marvels. But Rainshadow Island isn’t about to give up its secrets…

In the alien catacombs of Rainshadow, there are creatures whose compelling songs lure the unwary to their death. That’s why Rafe Coppersmith, hired to clear out the catacombs for exploration, needs a music talent. He’s knows the perfect one, but she probably doesn’t want anything do with him...

Ella Morgan had once fallen hard and fast for Rafe, but then he disappeared for months…and he’s not about to tell her why. Ella, too, has secrets that only her dust bunny knows. She’s not just a music talent, she’s a Siren: a paranormal singer capable of singing men to sleep—or to their deaths.

But once on Rainshadow, Rafe and Ella will learn that surrendering to passion doesn’t come without risks—and fighting fire with fire only adds to the flame…

Whenever I see a new Rainshadow series book come out I admit I  get a little excited for more dust bunny adventures. I know, I know they are the sidekicks/adorable pets of the main characters who are fabulous and tough and everything I'd want in a heroine. But I love them. These little creations are slightly intelligent tiny balls of fluff with teeth who help out the main characters in their own adorable way. Okay, my gushing about dust bunnies is done for now. On to the actual review of the SIREN'S CALL.

SIREN'S CALL is an eerie mystery set on Rainshadow island. The description of the weather on Rainshadow really helps make the book feel haunting. This is a place of fog, strangeness, and great mystery. You really get a sense of the danger people face even visiting this place for a short time. I love the paranormal creatures Ella and Rafe encounter on the island. They are really unique and quite scary.

I really enjoyed how Ella and Rafe are equals in their abilities and in their relationship. Ella's talent as a siren is really unique and seeing how her powers are used was very cool.  It's refreshing in a way to read about characters who aren't really to far out of their depth and can handle themselves compentantly in a paranormal romance. Both characters have their pasts and issues to overcome and deal with them in a mature reasonable way (more or less). I liked seeing them connect and grow together and solve the mystery of how to stop singing paranormal creatures in Rainshadow.

For its eeriness and mystery SIREN'S CALL is a rather fun and quick read. It's a magic filled paranormal mystery filled with alien artifact dealers, singing dinos, mysterious organizations and  of course....dust bunnies!
