Book Review

its compelling plot and well-drawn characters, engrosses the reader in a world of intrigue, espionage and suspense

“The Siren, The Song, and The Spy” by Maggie Tokuda Hall is a beautifully written tale, aimed at young adult readers, however, I would recommend it to all.

The story, with its compelling plot and well-drawn characters, engrosses the reader in a world of intrigue, espionage and suspense. It also contains strong-willed characters with distinct personalities, which adds to the originality of the plot.

This story is much more than just an action novel, moreover, it is a cleverly written, book with an embedded romance – who doesn’t want that?

All in all, this was a very enjoyable read that I couldn’t put down!
