Summary from Goodreads:

The Mystical Bond, the Fatal Allure … of Hunter & Prey

Misunderstood seventeen year old Lila Crain unwillingly moves to the foreboding town of Shade, prepared to face her punishment – Shade High. But she can’t begin to anticipate the life-altering events that lie in wait for her.

The dark and charismatic Reid has a wolfish grin and amber eyes that would make any girl blush and he has his sights set on the new girl in school.
Reid’s stunning friends – including icy top dog Sam – invite Lila into their clique. Suspicious, yet flattered by their attention she answers the intriguing call like a moth to a flame.

Thrillingly introduced to the local nightlife by the enigmatic group, Lila finally feels like she belongs. But her newly found friendships threaten to turn sour when she unwittingly develops feelings for the leader’s off-limits boyfriend, Sky.
Tensions rise further when a quirky local named Cresida warns Lila to stay away from the clique at all costs.

Undeterred, she is irresistibly drawn to uncover the truth behind their mysterious lifestyle.
Lila unwittingly starts off a chain of events that will forever alter fate for both hunter and hunted as she learns they have been waiting for her…

Inspired by the legend of the femme fatale goddess, Artemis, Wolf Sirens is a compelling gothic masterpiece of paranormal romance.

Forbidden, Fever, Night Fall, Dusk in Shade and soon to be released Dawn in Shade – all continue the tale of Lila Crain, the heroine with the chip on her shoulder, on an epic paranormal journey in which forbidden love threatens to destroy the underworld.

Review:
Disclaimer: This review was previously posted on Lunar Haven Reviews & Designs

When I first came across this book I was automatically drawn to it not by the cover but by the blurb, I am usually drawn to books that deal with the different gods and goddesses in mythology. And this having to do with Artemis really peaked my interest. However I found that within the book there was not much to find about Artemis but it did focus a great deal on Lila. I really feel for Lila as she is thrown into a new town having to make new friends, but the other kids are not all that they seem. They have secrets that Lila could never imagine possible.

As love blooms in the most unlikely place Lila find herself finding out more about herself, the truth about who she is and will become, and the truth behind what her true destiny holds.

I think that anyone looking for a new read would find this book quite a catch, it may not have a lot of back story to Artemis as I would have liked but regardless the plot around Lila is so intriguing you find yourself wrapped up in the story that you finish the book in just a day or so.
