The Siren's Sister by R. M. Dilleen follows Deandra, a graduate student who simply wanted to help a friend out by house-sitting when she gets tossed into a world full of mythical creatures and mayhem. Deandra never would have believed that mythical creatures, spirits, and magic existed if she hadn’t seen them with her own eyes and she surely wouldn’t have expected to be a part of this other world. An exciting adventure awaits her whether she’s prepared for it or not.
The Siren's Sister by R. M. Dilleen was a refreshing fantasy story with a female lead that managed to steer clear of the Mary-Sue archetype. Deandra had the right balance between a kind, trusting, and almost naïve personality while still leaving room to show her fierce side. I enjoyed her as the female lead in this story and I think Dilleen did a marvelous job in creating not only the characters but in the world-building as well. Dilleen’s writing is just descriptive enough without becoming overly wordy, which sets a nice tone throughout. We see classic mythical creatures appear in this book, but each character is unique with their traits and interesting backstories. I enjoyed the book, especially the almost slow-burn action and subtle hints of romance throughout. The story focused more on the protagonist and her unknown past instead of just a fated romantic connection. The book sets itself apart in many ways and I would recommend it to any reader looking for a good fantasy tale.
