Lullaby by Amanda Hocking book 2 in the Watersong series



Gemma tried to not to hate them, but it was just too little and way too late.

Gemma had to disappear with Penn, Lexi and Thea after a night of incredible violence on the island. She can still barely come to terms with her new affinity with the ocean – and the siren powers that go with it. Now she’s been transformed, Gemma had no choice but to leave all she loves behind. She swears she won’t lose her humanity, but the call of the sea is maddening and compulsive.

Harper won’t give up on her missing sister. The search draws her closer that she’d like to bohemian Daniel, but she could really use his help. They almost given up, until a small news item tells of a horrific murder in a nearby beach town, and Harper thinks she’s found the deadly group. But can Gemma’s curse be reversed – and what if she doesn’t want to come home?

I don’t really need a big summary for this one either haha got to love long blurbs!

After the violence at the end of the last book (which I didn’t mention… oops!) Gemma left with the sirens to keep her family and Alex safe. But being away from her loved ones is hard.

Gemma is trying to keep her humanity in tact but the call of the ocean is strong and she can’t resist it for any longer and when Gemma’s hunger becomes too much, someone gets hurt. 

That’s how Harper, Alex and Daniel manage to find Gemma and bring her home.

But at home things are still complicated and the sirens find Gemma. In another epic violent showdown at the beach, they decide to stay. If only to find out a few things.

To be honest there is a bit of character development in this book but it’s mainly centered around Gemma coming to terms with her Siren powers and trying to keep a hold of her humanity.

Harper is getting closer to Daniel, despite the fact she’s trying not too.

Alex is still completely in love with Gemma and the sirens don’t understand how.

Penn is still crazy and so is Lexi. Thea is a little less so and is starting to become a bit more… human.

Everything about it was more faster paced than the first book and I enjoyed it a little more than the first one.

It’s still weird reading about sirens but it was definitely growing on me. It’s interesting to read a different type of supernatural things than what you’re used to.

4 out of 5 stars
