What It's About!

Harper only wanted a safe, normal life. But when her younger sister Gemma runs off with a dangerous clique of beautiful girls, Penn, Thea, and Lexi, everything changes. Vowing to get her sister back no matter what the cost, Harper must face dangers unlike any she's ever experienced. Fortunately, she has Daniel by her side, a gorgeous guy who's devoted to helping her find her sister—and who's immune to the girls' dark powers.

While Harper searches for her sister, Gemma struggles to adjust to her new life.  Gemma's powers are growing by the day, and the longer she lives with her new "sisters," the harder it is to resist entering their magical world.  It's a realm both dark and beautiful, and where she's plagued by strange hungers and unspeakable needs.  Just as she's drifting far away from her old life,  Harper and Daniel find her...but no one can deny how much she's changed.  All she wants is to return to her family and the mortal world, but how can she do that when she's become something else entirely—and will they still love her once they learn the truth?


Lullaby was a pretty quick, mediocre read for me. I don't know if it's because of the other books I've been reading that made this book just ok in comparison, but it just didn't keep me interested for very long. Some parts were better than others, but it was pretty slow up until the very end when there's actually something going on. Otherwise I feel like there could have been a lot more that happened, a lot of it felt like everything was over-described just so there were words on the pages so they weren't blank.

There was a lot more Daniel in this book, which I really liked. He's the character that most grabbed and kept my attention, the others were just...meh. Once again, the book is written from both Gemma and Harper's points of view. While I was reading it, it was a bit tricky sometimes to tell which one was actually telling the story, since it's written in third person and sometimes they'd both be in the same scene.

There were definitely parts I liked, like the very end and a few parts in between. Overall it's a good book, especially since it's about mermaids and boys and whatnot, I just hope the next book is more action-packed and interesting.
