Tattoo artist June Coffin has another, more hidden talent: she’s a Siren who can influence people with the sound of her voice. But in the wake of a murder and shake-up at the Institute of Supernatural Research, her own powers are starting to kill her. The only chance she has of saving herself—as well as her kidnapped brother and best friend—is to become a vampire. But joining the ranks of the vengeful vamp, Occam Reed, is the last thing June wants to do.
Occam isn’t the only danger June needs to worry about. Power hungry telepath Robbie Beecher will stop at nothing to gain control over Chicago. He’ll destroy anyone who gets in his way—and June’s lover, Sam, is high on the hit list since his bid for Mayor. With the city and June’s heart being pulled in different directions, it’s only a matter of time before the powder keg explodes…and time isn’t something June has much of left. With a city on fire, can she rise from its ashes?
The Burning City by Megan Morgan
The Burning City is a quick, easy and entertaining read.
Siren, turned tattoo artist, June is dealing with numerous power hungry people. Some want her blood, some want her lover and some just want her ability. June must traverse a web of treachery and lies and hopefully make the right decision to survive with a life she can live with.
This was a shorter novel with an original plot and interesting characters. The concept was great but I never connected to the characters.
