Publisher's Summary

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 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....

Another Great One

Rafe and Ella are a matched pair. She helps him develop his new talent after getting psy burned and he helps her understand that she is not the end of any relationship she has. she was waiting or him. They complete each other yet are powerful on their own. Can't wait for the next Rainshadow Island book.

Cute story

What did you love best about Siren's Call?

The two main characters met with no previous history of each other. In some of Jayne Castle's books, the main characters come to the story with a previous relationship. When stories begin like this, I feel like I've missed part of the story before it starts.

What other book might you compare Siren's Call to and why?

Some of Jayne Castle's earlier works, 'Orchid', 'Amaryllis', etc. (which aren't on audible for some reason)

Have you listened to any of Barbara Rosenblat’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Excellent-the best narrator there is! (check her narration of Elizabeth Peter's, Amelia Peabody series)

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was glad to listen to Barbara Rosenblat again and hope she narrates more of Jayne Castle/Krentz and Amanda Quick's books.

Poor vocal match

Reader voice too gravely and old sounding for the main female character. Performance was distracting and off.

good book bad reader

love the story but her telling it was aweful it was very annoying over blown making the storyline get lost in her bad acting. I've never left a bad review before but had to stop listening so many times because her telling it was just so annoying!

Terrible narration

Normally ok with narrator but this was awful. She made them sound like bickering children through the book.

Excellent!

A fast paced story that had lots of surprises. I'm pleased there will be a followup story, I hope I don't have to wait very long, sorry Ms. Castle you are already a prolific writer (and I'm asking you to write faster😚). I hope Siren's Call comes out shortly. Narrator did her usual excellent job!

Jayne's dust bunnys rock

Any additional comments?

I have looked forward to downloading this audio book for months. It was worth the wait and losing some sleep to listen to this story. It's a great story. I like the way the characters are introduced and developed and interact with each other. The other Rain Shadow books are great too. The dust bunny's are small but an important part - I enjoy them very much.
Barbara Rosenblat's voice was a delight to me, she was just right for this story. Personally, I can hear several books branching out from this one, hope Jayne doesn't retire!

Spastic Narrator!

I've listened to other books performed by Barbara Rosenblat and the pauses and artificial emphasis was noted but not so obvious that it detracted from the book. Siren's Call was jerky, disjointed, and continuous throughout the book making it an effort to keep to the storyline. This was one of Jayne's stronger Rainbow Island chapters which I really enjoy. Unfortunately poor narration made the story less! I recommend Siren's Call be enjoyed in print because this audio is way below Jayne's usual standard. I have the majority of Jayne Castle's books in ibooks and poor narration is the culprit!

Light, fun adventure with dust bunnies and donuts

Krentz, writing as Jayne Castle, adds another great story in her Rainshadow series. The action scenes arrive right on time in a plot that tap dances through abductions, encounters with armed thugs, chase scenes, and monsters of various kinds. Plus heroic sci fi dust bunnies. What more could you want?

I loved listening to Barbara Rosenblat's rich voice with the right edge of comedy in her inflection and pitch-perfect timing. Her performance really kicks the novel up a notch to deliver a super audiobook experience.

Not my favorite narrator...

I do not care for the voice (or mouth sounds) of the narrator. AT ALL.
