Synopsis:

The sea is coming. We are coming. And we will drown you all.

With a song, Lucy can control the wind and the water; she can bring castles and kingdoms to their feet. Since Lucy mastered her powers, King Henry has kept her close as he’s rebuilt England. She’s his best ally—and his workhorse. And now he’s called her to investigate attempted murder: His men claim they were almost killed on the Thames…by a mermaid. All Lucy can glean from the creature they’ve captured is a warning: The sea is coming. We are coming. And we will drown you all.

And then the floods begin. Swaths of London are submerged as the people scramble to defend themselves against the water—and the monsters—that are flooding their streets. As mistrust of Lucy's magic grows, the king relies on Nat, Lucy's great love, to guide them through the storm. But Nat is cold and distant to Lucy. He swore his love only a year before, and now he calls her “stranger.”

Lucy is determined to defeat this powerful new magic alone if she must. But then she hears an eerie song within the water…can it mean that she’s not the last Chantress after all?

Sweepingly romantic and crackling with magic, Chantress Fury triumphantly concludes the powerful Chantress trilogy.

Fallon's Review of Chantress (Chantress Trilogy #1):

Lucy lives a sheltered life on an island with her guardian Norrie. She does not have many memories of the past. She starts to hear singing faint on the wind and  it seems to call to her. Lucy can not help but want to signing it's song. Soon she and Norrie are swept away in a storm and separated. 



The once isolated Lucy now has to learn to survive in a harsh world filled with many dangers she could never even fathom. She discovers she is a Chantress and they are killed and hunted and she must avoid being discovered at all cost. The Shadowgrim are connected to the magic and hunt and feed off those who are captured. Their wings feel like sharp blades of fire.


Chantress was a non stop adventure that you felt invested in the outcome. Amy Butler Greenfield's writing is unlike many others. I felt the English culture entwined throughout and it was enchanting. I loved the connection to the fae and the origin of how the chantresses came into existence. This is a book you will sink your teeth into and be begging for more.

Fallon's Review for Chantress Alchemy (Chantress Triogy #2):

Now Lucy has to rely on wild magic and soon finds herself connected to the song of the sea. She looses herself by the water trying to gain something she feels she has lost. The King provided her with the isolation she required but soon the Kings men come to find her. In fear Lucy sings for protection and she realizes she has created a fog of mist that not only blinds the men but unfortunately blinds her and Norrie as well.


Lucy answers the call of the King and soon finds herself in a mystery she must uncover. Something of great value has been stolen and the king wants her to find it and uncover who has taken it. The only probe is Lucy soon finds her singing is not working the way it is suppose to and things are going terribly wrong. How can she discover anything if she can not even trust herself. Will Lucy figure out how to sing the right song.


Chantress Alchemy is unlike the first which makes them both special and unique. In the first she took us on adventure but in this second book we get swept up in trying to uncover the secrets of what has happened. I loved watching Lucy grow, she came from such isolation but really seems to know how to see through the people at courts bull. This book was just as magical as the first.

Fallon's Review for Chantress Fury (Chantress Trilogy #3):

Chantress Fury starts off quite a bit after Chantress Alchemy. Sybil and King Henry have married and Nat has made a name for himself and is one of the kings most trusted men. Lucy has still not seen Nat and has done what he asks. She is called to court by Henry to help on a situation, She is now at the castle and hears screaming coming from Sybil's room. Lucy realizes the distance that has come between her and Sybil. She is reluctant to tell Lucy why they were screaming. Norrie however jumps in and reveals that someone may have seen a mermaid in the water. Sybil brushes it off but tells Lucy not tell Henry. 


The King calls Lucy and they set off on a boat and she soon learns she will be seeing Nat. As soon as she sees him her heart speeds up. Unfortunately everything goes wrong when she notices a women bound and gagged. She is confrontational and demands answers. It is soon obvious that the women at second glance is not a women but a mermaid. They had to capture her before she killed them is their defense. She however is not the only of her kind. "The sea is coming. We are coming. And we will drown you all." 



If you love mermaids and fae then this story will works it way into your heart. This was an epic conclusion filled with so many twist and turns you will be twisted all about and screaming yes more. Chantress Fury is the perfect name for this last book. I was glued up until the very last page. This series was original and fun.
