A Song of Siren and Blood: A Book Review

When I first started reading a Song of Siren and Blood I was initially confused, and still am a bit (don't worry, it's easy to do)...I'll explain. 


The main character Minerva is a tough old singer still actively singing and performing well into her seventies. The book begins at where Minerva has just received a very long standing ovation after singing a multiple hour live performance. While the fans love her,  her success as a musician never reached its full potential, as she is under appreciated, and under achieving singer for her talent. 

Being down on her luck, she accepts a job to give vocal lessons to a very wealthy client. Things end up not being what they seem.  A very wealthy businessman has hired someone to pull Minerva's soul out of her body, and into the body of a his daughter, a young girl named Moriganne Charmer.  The moving of souls however doesn't go as planned, and Minerva displaces the soul of the girl who's body she has been placed into. 

Minerva now has to navigate being a student again, in the Halls of the Stone Singers. She has six months to fool everyone around her into thinking she is still Moriganne, while also succeeding in school.


The Song of Siren and Blood started off at a great pace, however I felt the world development and character development wasn't deep. I'm still a bit confused about the world, and hope to learn more about it's history and how/who/what has magic in future books. I have not read any of Thomas Carpenter's other books, and I'm thinking that I may be missing some information because I am starting at this point. I was still able to enjoy the book however, and am definitely interested to know if I should have started at a different point in his Hall Series books.
