The Creed — Siren Song is the third book in the Magical Realism Romance Series by Vivi Stutz, a beautiful mix of fiction and the paranormal. Mia is a ballerina who is facing challenges in different areas of her life. First, her boyfriend Gabriel has been shot by her ex-boyfriend, and now he is reincarnated into a new body. When Mia finds him, she discovers that Gabriel has lost his memory. Her group’s manager is on a leave of absence, which makes things even more complicated for Mia, plus she is being stalked by her ex. A feminist group welcomes her with the promise of helping her develop her skills as a clairvoyant. When Gabriel invites her to help him retrace the memory of the last day of his previous life, Mia sees a chance to reconnect with the love she’s lost. And there is more at stake here.

The narrative voice is strong and beautiful, and I enjoyed that the characters are elaborately developed and the plot has different layers. The protagonist is struggling to reconnect with her soul-mate, a man killed while trying to protect her. It’s sad that Gabriel doesn’t remember her anymore and thinks he’s lost someone else. The fact that Mia seeks help from a group that has sinister plans creates a deep sense of suspense in the story and adds to the strong conflict. The writing in The Creed — Siren Song is gorgeous and atmospheric, filled with beautiful dialogues and powerful descriptions. The story is fast-paced, emotionally and psychologically intense, featuring characters that readers will definitely adore.

The Creed: Siren Song is a work of romance and magical realism penned by author Vivi Stutz. Forming the third book in a series of tales in the genre, known as The Creed, this latest instalment picks up on the story of Mia the ballerina as she searches for the love of her life, Gabriel. In a world where modern day angels interact with the humans of Earth, Gabriel must be given a new incarnation after being shot by Mia’s jealous ex-boyfriend Alex. As Mia develops her own powers of clairvoyance and psychokinesis, she realizes that some of her so-called allies are not as they seem, and a terrible fate may await her when Gabriel returns and asks for her help.

The first quality which really struck me as a reader was the talent that author Vivi Stutz has for description. The novel plays out cinematically, with lavish sets, gorgeous leading men and women, and some serious special effects. The plot is heavily romantic, though not graphic with sexual content, using the elements of angelic groups like the Bodhisattva and the Nephilim to create barriers for our central lovers to overcome. Combined with the threat of the very well-drawn ex-boyfriend Alex, there are plenty of suspenseful moments and obstacles to make an exciting romantic read. Romance fans are sure to root for Mia as she quests for her true love and discovers her own powers. Overall, The Creed: Siren Song is an excellent continuation to a romantic paranormal series.

In Siren Song, the final novel of The Creed series by Vivi Stutz, we find ballerina Mia searching for the reincarnation of her soulmate Gabriel after he was killed trying to protect her. When Mia finally traces him, she finds he not only doesn’t remember her, but believes he loves someone else. She seeks help from a group of Nephilim to awaken her psychic abilities, unaware that they have a sinister ulterior motive. If Mia cannot help Gabriel recall the events of that fateful night, then she risks losing him forever but is she willing to risk her career and reputation to do so?

The story line of The Creed - Siren Song by Vivi Stutz is fresh and compelling, covering the subjects of reincarnation, angels and the search for your true self. The main characters are well rounded and realistic. I loved the endearing relationship between Mia and Todd/Gabriel; they were definitely soulmates, but had to overcome the obstacle of Maria’s influence. Peter was definitely my favourite. I loved his witty, sharp personality. The conflicts were well placed throughout and kept the plot moving forward at an exciting pace. There is a strong life lesson to be had from this novel; that you sometimes have to listen to your gut instinct even if the reasons do not make any sense to you. The author writes beautifully and has a great talent of taking you on a thought-provoking and emotional journey which will enthrall you to the final page.
