In Never Date a Siren (College Fae Magic Series, Book 1) by Byrd Nash, Leopold Otto University - LOTTOS for short - is attended by both humans and fae alike, making it an interesting but also dangerous place to be a student. Fae Brigit Cullen just got kicked out by her filthy roommate and has to look for other accommodation. Her fellow fae Celia suggested Logan Dannon, who has an extra room in his apartment. Brigit finds out that Logan is 'beguiled' by a siren named Sybil, direly wrecking his health and grades. An incident leaves Brigit owing a 'Debt of Gratitude' to Logan, so she has to repay the human by helping him get rid of Sybil's curse on him before it's too late.

The title is self-explanatory; dating a fae is not a good idea especially when the said fae is a ruthless and ambitious siren. Engaging from the start with lovable characters, Never Date a Siren takes place in a university town of a country that had an interesting old treaty between a human king and a fae. When it was clear that some fae students loved to bend the rules at the expense of others, I pitied the humans right away. That said, Logan’s tenacity was easy to root for despite the challenges that he had to face in terms of dealing with the fae folk, especially Sybil. As for Brigit, her subtle unapproachable manner made the wood sprite even more appealing and I admired the way she handled difficult situations. Funny, fast-paced with interesting plot twists, Byrd Nash's College Fae Magic Series is a fantastic series for contemporary fantasy fans.

A fun magical story with characters that are hard not to love.

A Fun, Magical Story
A fun, magical story -- plus wonderful spinoff from Granny Starseed -- that will leave readers hooked from the start. Trust me, once you fall into this world of faes and gods and humans, you will be sad to see it end and be left wondering how the characters don't exist. I will definitely be waiting for the sequel. I must know what university life brings next for Brigit and Logan and their friends.
