~Summary from Goodreads~
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?

Prepare to fall under the spell of Lullaby, the second book in the Watersong series fromNew York Times bestselling author Amanda Hocking.

~My Review~ 
A fantastic second book in the Watersong series!

Lullaby didn’t miss a beat, picking up right where Wake left off.  With Gemma gone, Harper, Alex, and Daniel have joined together, determined to find her, and bring her home.  

Gemma hates being a siren and fights her new nature every step of the way.  But fighting it makes her very sick, and she soon realizes that if she doesn’t “eat” she’ll end up dead. Will Gemma come to terms with her new life before it’s too late?  You’ll have to readLullaby to find out.

Hocking never fails to amaze me with her books.  She always paints a vivid picture and creates a unique world, and you just can’t help but become absorbed in the story.

Like the first book, this one was a slow-ish read, and not action packed, but I still loved it.  Even if it wasn’t action packed, it was an emotional roller-coaster.  I loved every single one of the character Hocking created in the Watersong series.

In the end, this was a fun read and I enjoyed every second of it.  There is no doubt that I will be continuing on with this series to see how life plays out for Gemma and her friends.  I would definitely recommend this series to every YA fan out there.
