Rocking Out to the Song of Secrets

There comes a time after reading a book that you want to re-read it or read a sequel to it to find out what happens next. For me with this book, it happened instantaneously. I seriously want to knows what happens next. (And I’m curious as to who will violate Rule #2 first.) I was sucked in and hooked early on with Song of Secrets. And sadly, it was over before I was ready for it to be over. I know it seems unreasonable (especially for an author), but I kinda wanted to email Rachel and say, “Hey, where’s the next book?”

But I didn’t. No, I’m exercising extreme restraint. Because I know there will be a second book. And that I am anxiously awaiting.

So what did I like about the book? The characters were very real and relatable, even with the powers. I love urban fantasy in general, but this stuck out to me because the world was so interesting. The different factions all working behind the scenes in kind of a secret cold war. The writing was done so well that I ran the gamut of emotions with the characters and readily identified with them because I understood their motivations. I mean, it’s been a while since I was a teenager, but Song of Secrets definitely brought me back to that time of my life.

Normally I’d rate a book that I loved this much, but I can’t (because of the ethics of book marketing). But if I could, I would give this 4.7/5.0 stars. (minus .3 stars for making me wait on the next one lol.)

Get Song of Secrets through Amazon.
