Wolf Sirens: Fever: Many are Born, Few are Reborn.
 by Tina Smith
Eternally Cursed to Love & Not Purely Desire…
A shadow has fallen over the heart lands of myth and reality. Prophecy says Apollo, god of deadly plague, conspires to undo his sister’s legacy. Increasingly, each successive slayer becomes more alluring to the enemy and the predestined struggle, to both resist and contain their fierce rival.
The wolves and hunters are cursed to a mutual attraction, powerful enough to tear two worlds apart. The chosen is reborn broken-hearted, in the scorching embers of grief.
Devastated Lila trains tirelessly as the chaste assassin never conquered by love. Forsaken, she must submit to deliver justice and protect the innocent of Shade.
But is it love or revenge which motivates her?
Will the huntress or her heart prevail? Breaking away from the call of destiny and fearing betrayal, Lila makes a desperate escape in search of her lost beloved. The history of the wolf pack is revealed and the intensity between two ancient enemies ignites. Devotion and desire in the underworld reaches fever pitch.
If The Bite Doesn't Get You, Then the Fever Will.



My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After falling in the darkness, Lila is back, stronger and with thirst for revenge. Wolf Sirens Fever starts right where the first book ended, this sequel is darker and more exciting and above all this book shows us the breaking point in Lila’s life.

This is not the typical sequel where we continue the story of the previous characters. In order to really comprehend how we got here, the author takes the opportunity to tell the story of several characters, making the book a mix of present and past. A wonderful journey through different moments in time and their intersections, showing us the scenes that define the present as we know it.

Mythology is more present than ever, in this installment the magic behind the wolves creation is present on each chapter giving the series a magical atmosphere.

Each story is different but they all are intense and exciting to read. Getting to know the past, the secrets, and the essence of the characters really helps to create a wider and complete idea of this world and the people in it. It makes them more solid and real.

When I say this book is darker I’m referring to the process Lila is living. We see her going through a hard time, doing her best to figure out her destiny and discovering some major life changing truths. She is in a dark hole and it will take a lot of determination and the desire to finding the true to getting out of there.

Cresida is now a major character. She is there for Lila and will be the key to the story. Ray takes a different role than the first book and new characters will be added to the story.

The book can we divided in two parts. The first part is much sadder than the second, with lots of regression into the past and with Lila almost as a zombie going through life. The second part is more active, with lots of adrenaline rush, exciting moments and decisions that will change the course of the series.

This is a must for the lovers of the first book. Wolf Sirens Fever has not the same rhythm as the first book but it is written in the same or even better writing style.
