Lullaby (Watersong Series #2)

Lullaby - Amanda Hocking *Genre* Young Adult Paranormal*Rating* 3.0*Thoughts*Lullaby, the second book in the Watersong series, picks up a few days after the conclusion of Wake. If you haven't read the first book yet, the synopsis to Lullaby pretty much tells you what happened, and what will happen.16-year old Gemma Fisher has been cursed by Penn to live as a Siren (mermaid). Gemma tries and tries to fight back against the changes that have happened to her, including refusing to eat and swim, but she kind of likes the overall effects that have happened to her. With Penn and Lexi pushing her every 5 minutes to swim or eat, Gemma is caught in a bad situation. By eating, I don't mean food either, she actually grows stronger and feels better instead of lying on death's doorstep.18-year old Harper Fisher is pretty much devastated by the events that happened in Wake and has promised herself that she will find a cure for Gemma if it's the last hing she does. Harper is a character who truly believes that it is her responsibility to save everyone; her father, Alex, and Daniel, from the Sirens. Harper is also kind of lethargic and needs a swift kick in her ass, and maybe some Daniel time. Ok, lots of Daniel time. Unfortunately, that doesn't play into Lullaby's storyline. Except for the fact that Gemma does something she told herself she would never do, eat, and the fact that Harper, Alex, and Daniel find her and bring her back to Capri, nothing really changes in this series. Harper still hasn't found a way to cure Gemma's curse. Penn is still terrifying and in charge. Lexi is just absolutely off her rocker. I think I'm starting to warm up to Thea in a way though. She doesn't kill or eat like Penn & Lexi. She seems to actually care about Gemma and what happens to her. She even takes Gemma under her wing.I'm also not that impressed with Harper since she can't withstand the Siren's call and finds herself in harms way a lot. The only mystery that needs to be explained to me is why Daniel is immune to the Siren's call, what is different about Capri that has Penn curious, and whether or not there is a bit of ESP in Harper, and her mother that apparently brought them directly to Gemma's location.Apparently, I need to read the next book and hope there are answers and not further disappointment.
