This is the first book I have read from this author and I have to say that I was very pleased. This book is full of action, drama, murder, Sirens, and sex! We are introduced to Kylee Paradox, a siren, you has become bounty hunter and protector of the human world against evil. She is tasked with hunting down creatures of the underworld and sending them back to Hell, a place she knows quite well being a former resident there herself; a place where she escaped from and would rather not return. But when Fate herself tasks her with the hardest mission she has ever faced she finds herself struggling to come to terms with what she must do, let alone complete it. If she fails, or if she harms a single innocent with her sirens song then she well be cast back to Hell to be the devils puppet. She comes up with a plan, but as we all know, things do not always go as planned and when her neighbor Alex unknowingly injects himself in the middle of the situation she must improvise to keep the man she loves safe when all hell breaks loose while saving innocents from the underworldly creature causing havoc.
The characters are well developed and I love Kylee's personality and that she isn't a damsel. The plot was interesting; not the same old thing that I've read before. This book will keep you on the edge of your seat the entire time. It is fast paced and full of suspense. There are no cliffhangers. I would definitely recommend this to other readers. I am looking forward to seeing whats to come in the next installment.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced review copy of Silencing the Siren.
Silencing the Siren by J.E. Taylor is book one in her The Paradox Files series. In this book we are introduce to Kylee a Siren who works for Fate as a bounty hunter gathering up rogue creatures who threaten the world around them. Kylee used to be a resident of Hell before she escaped and came to the human world but she didn't escape alone. Her brother came with her and she made him swear a pact that he would lay low and not use his powers to ensnare or hurt any humans. For whatever the reason he has broken that promise and now Fate has demanded that Kylee find him and finish him off before he causes any more destruction. Klyee is reluctant to take on this task because well...he's her brother. But does she really have a choice? Either she does this or she will be returned to Hell and that is one thing that she would rather avoid at all costs if she can. But Fate will not be dissuaded from her mandate...and to drive the point home she shows Kylee what he's done. What Kylee doesn't expect is an unforeseen complication from her neighbor Alex who has a strong interest in her. He decides to go along with her on this putting the both of them in danger with his not fully thought out act of chivalry. Now arises the question...will they be able to make it out of this alive and will Kylee be able to fulfill her mission or will she fail? Silencing the Siren is the first book that I've read by J.E. Taylor and I have to say that I really enjoyed it. The book mixes together mythology with fantasy, danger and a lot of heat. I was immediately engaged into the story right from the beginning and I honestly couldn't get enough. Kylee is a fascinating character but I'm a bit disappointed in her for hesitating as much as she does. She knows the dangers and the consequences of not acting swiftly and decisively. I like that she gets a taste of what has been happening to her brother through a touch of his memories but it should have driven her even more to do what she already knew was necessary to do. This book is very well written with no noticeable errors to detract from the enjoyment of the story. I love a couple of the twists that are thrown at us. I can honestly say that I am very much looking forward to the next book in this series. I give it two thumbs up and 5 out of 5 stars. I received a copy of this book in exchange for a review.
Being a bounty hunter for Fate and at risk of her freedom left Kaylee with no option. She was a pawn and now she had to go after one of her own or return to hell. But what she didn’t expect was to, unwilling, drag a human in her hunt. And one she had some feelings for. Interesting and entertaining story with action, mythology, fantasy, suspense, intrigue, violence, romance, hot sex and conflicting emotions in the story. Inverted roles where we have a strong and resourceful heroine, not human at all, and a male intended to keep the only thing he thought was left for him. Liked that both characters had a protective instinct, even at risk of their lives, the detailed fights that I visualized and the outcome of this first book of Kaylee Paradox.
Kylie has caused death as a Siren but due to Fate she is now a Protector of humans and kills demons that slip into the human world. Watched closely by Fate if she ever uses her Siren Song again she will be sent back to help where she escaped from. She is given a job to kill another Siren but does not know if she can do the job. Her hot human neighbor decides she needs his help to protect her but he does not know what she is. Taylor has another well written, attention grabbing story. It's fast paced with interesting characters and hot chemistry between the main characters. I voluntarily reviewed this ARC book.
I loved this book, not wanting to put it down if I could give more than 5 stars this book would get definitely get more. Kylee a former siren now works for the good and protection of mankind, as a bounty hunter for Fate. But she's not allowed to use her siren's call incase she hurts a human if she does then she's going straight back to hell as the devil's plaything. This time she been sent on a mission that is going to be really hard and test her family loyalties. I won't tell you anymore as I hate when reviewers spoil the story for other readers.
I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily decided to review it This is an interesting story, very different to to what I usually read. it was very fast paced, about an immortal girl who against her will is set a task by fate. If she does not do this task, or fails it, she will be sent back to hell where she has been before. I cant say more about it because it would spoil the story. It was very interesting and unusual and I think I would need to read the next book to decide how much I like the concept of this storyline.
