Alluring Song by Aimee McNeil *Verna's Review*

Raised in seclusion, Lorelei is suddenly taken forcibly from the only place she has ever known. Her captors, led by a man named Crewe, become enamored of the fair Lorelei, except the warrior named Ajax, who refuses to accept her innocence. Suspicions lead him to act upon deep-rooted instinct. Lorelei can feel his distaste for her, almost palpable in the air, while she struggles against the confusing feelings he stirs within her. Everything about Ajax appeals to her, while he seems intent on causing her harm.
Ajax, bred from a lineage thought to be only myth, struggles between his nature and the intense desires that Lorelei inflames within him. Her very being causes him to question everything he believed to be true. When Lorelei is taken from his grasp, and her life is threatened, he realizes he will stop at nothing to save her, even if it is at the risk of his own life.
The notorious Teller arrives at Falls Landing, making strategically violent moves against the crown, causing fear and doubt to stir in the hearts of the people. Fueled by a vengeance so fierce, Teller has woven an intricate plan for the demise of the royal structure, the king, and the true target of his hatred.
The once-proud King Brom spirals into the web of lies and deceit his own wife, Queen Peronell, has spun around him. His ability to rule the kingdom comes into question as he encounters threats that infiltrate his realm. The truth of his downfall soon confronts him, and he is left to face what will remain.
Prince Arthur struggles with dark urges that threaten his sanity. His thirst for pain, pleasure, and the taste of blood begin to control him. When his secretive mother reveals the truth of his existence, he embraces his nature, even biting the hand that feeds him. His fascination soon turns toward the mysterious beauty that shows up at his door, and he will destroy anything that gets in his way.
All paths collide, and Lorelei finds herself in the middle of a struggle for power. She must face the truth of her creation, confront the powers that seek her, and face the new world that has forever changed from the protective walls of her forest. The dangers that surround her have been in play long before Lorelei was born, but they have been awaiting her arrival. Lorelei will also discover something that gives her the strength to face all that confronts her, her heart holding the key. 

While reading Alluring Song the only word that came to mind through the entire book was that it was just Magical. I loved the plot and all the characters roles in the story. It all went together so well.

I absolutely adored Lorelei. Her character is so strong, vibrant, good hearted and fights for others who need someone to stand up for them. Her character has such a bright soul it just glows and radiates off the pages. You can’t help but feel everything she does and root for her happy ending.

Ajax is just amazing. I fell in love with his character instantly even though at first he was so cold. His heart is closed and dark in the beginning, but after meeting Lorelei he has to fight everything he has ever known not to see her for the beautiful person she is. His battle within himself on whether he should do what he has always been taught to do and what he is feeling for Lorelei will just hook you. You will enjoy his growth throughout the book.

All the characters in the story will grab your attention and you’ll find yourself reading just to figure out how they all fit together in this amazing story. What roll they all play and how their story will end. I was on the edge of my seat the more I read. There is so much drama, love, and vengeance going on in the story you will just be blown away by the end of the book.

I give Alluring Song by Aimee McNeil 4 out of 5 Magical Stars.
