Siren's Fury by Mary Weber + Giveaway

by Mary Weber
Contrary to the popular belief of my children . . . sometimes my husband and I are cool enough that we get invited to parties.

(Either that or the party hosts just think this poor couple needs help at socialization with real live people and thus they send us an invite. In which case, it clearly seems to be effective since, at these parties, we end up visiting and laughing and do in fact generally act like humans who know what they’re doing.)

And sometimes, at said parties, we meet nice people who say lots of lovely things about life. And we say lovely things too. :0)

And every so randomly-often these newly-met nice people also say kind things like, “Oh hey, I read your book.”

Confession: This is always followed by a moment of silence. Until after a moment I coolly fumble out the words, “Oh. You did? Why?” (because I apparently need to be as awkward as possible and ask why on earth someone would do such a thing.)

“Ummmm because you wrote it.”
Me: “Oh.”
Nice Person: “And I really enjoyed your fantasy world. Especially the powers and man-eating horses.”
Me: *smiles sheepish* “Awww thanks.”
Nice Person: “So how’d you come up with the ideas for those?”
Me: “………...” *mind goes blank*

It’s usually not until handsome husband and I are driving home that my brain suddenly kicks back on and I think, “Why didn’t I tell them the truth?”

The truth being that sometimes I can be a decent collector of ideas.

Ideas resulting from being raised on Lord of the Rings and medieval history books.

And the massive love affair I have with all things Avatar, The Last Airbender.

As well as Maggie Stiefvater.

Along with Hayao Miyazaki

And comics.

In fact that last one I enjoy so much, I married one of the characters.


So… for the next time any of you feel inclined to pity us poor nerds and invite us to your super cool party to hang out with your super nice friends – WE ACCEPT!!!

And if one of those nice friends happens to ask about the world of Siren’s Fury . . .

Those will be my answers. ;0)

Siren's Fury (Storm Siren, #2)
Siren's Fury
by Mary Weber
Publisher: Thomas Nelson/Harpercollins
Release Date: June 2nd, 2015
Blurb: "I thrust my hand toward the sky as my voice begs the Elemental inside me to waken and rise. But it's no use. The curse I've spent my entire life abhorring—the thing I trained so hard to control—no longer exists."

Nym has saved Faelen only to discover that Draewulf stole everything she valued. Now he’s destroyed her Elemental storm-summoning ability as well.

When Nym sneaks off with a host of delegates to Bron, Lord Myles offers her the chance for a new kind of power and the whispered hope that it may do more than simply defeat the monster she loathes. But the secrets the Bron people have kept concealed, along with the horrors Draewulf has developed, may require more than simply
harnessing a darker ability.

They may require who she is.

Set against the stark metallic backdrop of the Bron kingdom, Nym is faced with the chance to change the future.

They live in California, which is perfect for stalking L.A. bands, Joss Whedon, and the ocean.
