The siren’s song, a hidden, melody, the rushing waves, and the escaping memories – a strange lore of fantasy and family was this story of Reen. Book 2 by Katlyn Duncan told me the story of the sister Reen.

A family broken apart, hurt and abandonment and distance widening the chasm, the book started with a breech between the sisters so deep that it took my turning the pages fast to form a bridge.

I loved the way Katlyn described Reen in contrast to Rose in book1. Reen was like a rough abrasive starchy wash cloth. Her need to run grated on my nerves till the love soaking into her by Brody and being saved from drowning caused her to settle down and show her hidden vulnerability. Hurt given by the mother always makes a child prickly…

Reen was stubborn and elusive, she kept her distance till the very end, that niggled me too. She refused to be my friend. Her reasons for running away from love and family could have been better explained, it was difficult connecting to her.

This book too haunted me with its possibilities, brought out my imagination in full force, and kept me hooked till the end. Luckily, there is still the mother Pearl’s story… And yes, the dreaded cliffhanger. To be continued when I get book 3

I received an ARC from NetGalley and publisher HQ Digital, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!!

When Reen left The Burrow eight years ago, she had no intention of returning to her idyllic seaside hometown. Withdrawn and isolated from her family after the tragic death of her father, there was no reason to stay.

But when her sister, Rose, reaches out with news about their mother she has no choice but to go back.

Forced to confront her demons she runs into her childhood sweetheart, Brody, who still sends her heart into a flutter. But can Reen finally learn let go of the past and find the happiness she truly deserves?
