Publisher's Summary

Her voice was a curse...

When Dylan "Oz" Oswin's son is kidnapped, the high-powered producer will do anything to get him back. Desperately following an anonymous tip, he seeks help from a former child singing sensation called Syrene, only to find she's vowed never to sing again. Immune to her voice but not her charm, Oz is convinced she holds the key to his son's disappearance - and he'll stop at nothing to make her break her vow. Only he can make her sing.... She knows the devastation her talent can bring. There's more than a child's life at stake, but Syrene cannot unleash her dangerous siren's voice upon the world, even for a man who is impossible to deny....

I could not follow this story line.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The story seemed overdone or in dire need of editing. The main lead came across as bipolar one minute and neurotic the next. I don't know about you but I like to image my self as the main character or at least someone I would want to hang out with. This female lead was sub par. The male lead never seemed to connect with her or was it just no chemistry ....no the chemistry was forced. Overall did not like the story as told.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I love a good love story no matter how the couple gets there. But would prefer to find authors who are not auditioning for playboy during the love scenes.

Would you be willing to try another one of Katina Kalin’s performances?

No, not interested.

What character would you cut from The Lure of Song and Magic?

Rewrite the lead female and give the male lead more insight. I have no problem with an alpha male but he had nothing to work with and by the middle of the story you were just as tired of him as you were of her.
