The Creed — Siren Song is the third book in the Magical Realism Romance Series by Vivi Stutz, a beautiful mix of fiction and the paranormal. Mia is a ballerina who is facing challenges in different areas of her life. First, her boyfriend Gabriel has been shot by her ex-boyfriend, and now he is reincarnated into a new body. When Mia finds him, she discovers that Gabriel has lost his memory. Her group’s manager is on a leave of absence, which makes things even more complicated for Mia, plus she is being stalked by her ex. A feminist group welcomes her with the promise of helping her develop her skills as a clairvoyant. When Gabriel invites her to help him retrace the memory of the last day of his previous life, Mia sees a chance to reconnect with the love she’s lost. And there is more at stake here.
The narrative voice is strong and beautiful, and I enjoyed that the characters are elaborately developed and the plot has different layers. The protagonist is struggling to reconnect with her soul-mate, a man killed while trying to protect her. It’s sad that Gabriel doesn’t remember her anymore and thinks he’s lost someone else. The fact that Mia seeks help from a group that has sinister plans creates a deep sense of suspense in the story and adds to the strong conflict. The writing in The Creed — Siren Song is gorgeous and atmospheric, filled with beautiful dialogues and powerful descriptions. The story is fast-paced, emotionally and psychologically intense, featuring characters that readers will definitely adore.
