Georgina Garrett has made many enemies, but with every victory she’s only grown stronger. But it only takes one defeat to crumble an empire and is this the one that brings Georgina to her knees?
‘Siren’ is the fourth book in the bestselling Georgina Garrett series. I have read, loved and reviewed the previous three books in the series and I had high hopes for ‘Siren’. I thought the first three books in the series were good but bloody norah, ‘Siren’ is the best one yet. I thoroughly enjoyed every single second of ‘Siren’ but more about that in a bit.
What can I say about Georgina Garrett? Well for a start she scares the crap out of me. She is one seriously tough cookie. In fact Georgina is tougher than most men are. That said, she does have her human side too and she has been known to keep an eye on those who are vulnerable to help and protect them. ‘Siren’ sees Georgina part way through her prison sentence. I won’t say too much more about that as I would hate to give away any spoilers. Georgina knows that people can be manipulated and she knows exactly how to play them.
It took me no time at all to get into this fantastic book. In fact seeing the name ‘Sam Michaels’ on the cover was enough to convince me that I had to read ‘Siren’ as soon as possible. As soon as I started to read, I just knew that I wouldn’t be moving very far from the sofa for the rest of the day as I wouldn’t be able t put this book down. My Kindle wasn’t exactly glued to my hand but it might as well have been. I just couldn’t bear to miss a single second of the story as I might miss something. Whilst reading ‘Siren’ I lost all track of time and just how quickly I was getting through the story. All too quickly I reached the end of the book and I had to say farewell to Georgina Garrett.
‘Siren’ is absolutely bloody brilliantly written but then I find that to be true of Sam’s books in general. She writes powerful, gritty and at times scary crime fiction. In Georgina Garrett, Sam has created one hell of a character. In all honesty I can’t say that I liked Georgina as such but I certainly wouldn’t want to cross her. Sam has a way of grabbing your attention from the start and drawing you into what proves to be a compelling story. Reading ‘Siren’ felt like being on a scary and unpredictable rollercoaster ride with several twists and turns along the way. I felt as though I was part of the story and that’s thanks to Sam’s very vivid and realistic storytelling.
In short, I thoroughly enjoyed reading ‘Siren’ and I would definitely recommend this book to other readers. I will certainly be reading more of Sam’s work in the future. The score on the Ginger Book Geek board is a very well deserved 5* out of 5*.
