Fury's Fire by Lisa Papademetriou

Saturday, December 24, 2011

At the end of Siren's Storm, the Sirens were defeated, and now the town of Walfang is once again a peaceful beach community.

Or is it? Gretchen and Will are still haunted by the memories of the night the Sirens were destroyed—Gretchen because she can't remember what happened and Will because he doesn't know how to tell Gretchen what he saw. He doesn't even understand what he saw, but he does know now that Gretchen is more than what she seems, more than a human girl. And at the same time, he is more in love with her than ever.

Gretchen knows there's something wrong, too. She feels like an alien in her own body, but she doesn't know why. And she feels a presence stalking her at every turn. Have the Sirens returned to Walfang? Or has some other force come to claim her?

From the Hardcover edition.

Goodreads Summary

Gretchen and Will are sort of at odds in this book.  Gretchen has no idea what transpired the fateful night where they "battled" the sirens and Will doesn't know what to tell her that won't scare her too much.  Will knows Gretchen is not merely human, but he still doesn't know what she is.  They still are not free of the sirens, there are plenty of siren scenes for the reader to look forward to.  Is Asia really gone?  Who actually killed the sirens? 

Gretchen's character is mostly the same, she has matured a little bit.  Half the time, she's annoying as she continually feels off and lets the reader know about it constantly.  Will's character hasn't changed much either.  He is still protective of Gretchen and clearly loves her.  Their relationship develops more in this book, the reader will enjoying seeing their relationship grow.  There are a few new secondary characters in this book, but the main characters are definitely the focus.  When a few older character reappear, Gretchen and Will have to decide who to trust and who to keep a wary eye on.   This book is recommended to young adult/teen readers.
