    1. I've read a few paranormal ones before, but I've not run across that many with mermaid heroines and it's always interesting to find a new twist in a very popular genre (and sub-genre). Lorelei is a great heroine. She's strong but has her troubles and a history that wasn't always so rosy. It seems like she takes her powers and her position seriously, which is a good thing considering what she can do :) And while her attraction to Vance could be his salvation, it could be her downfall so it's inte [...]

    2. This was a very good book, and really different than anything I've read lately. I've never read this type of PNR that involved elemental (air, earth, water) lore. The concept of it was very cool and extremely well-written. The characters and originality of the story are great, it had some great humor, so it deserves 5 stars from me!You have 2 sisters named Hilde and Lorelei (water elemental's) going on a vacation of sorts through rivers in the United States, and since they are Nixies who love to [...]

    3. Being from the South, I really enjoy stories with local color and this one was lots of fun. When one of the guiding characters manifests as a huge catfish, even transporting the hero, Vance, in his belly, then you know it's an inventive story. Lorelei is a mermaid, who is in line to become ruler of the Rhine Land. She and her sister are cruising through the states, visiting friends and having a last trip together before duties take Lorelei away. Instead, she is drawn to the music from Vance, who [...]

    4. This is a paranormal romance. The first book in the Southern Elemental Guardians Series, but could be read as a stand alone. I recommend this for adults only due to the sexual content. I started this book and immediately was disappointed, the book started off whimsical but very childish. But I wanted to give the book a chance and it did get better. Still there are parts that are hard to decipher, but nothing that kept me from enjoying parts of the book. I really feel that with good editing it wo [...]

    5. The description of Lorelei's Lyric had me curious enough to take a gander and see what DB Seiders had to offer me as a writer.It took me a few chapters to get into the enchanting story of Lorelei the Mermaid and Vance/Vincent the emotionally spiralling Musician. But once their character development began, I was pleasantly surprised. Loreli is a young Mermaid of about half a millenium who is adventuring through the Southern States towards Detroit, Michigan, when they take a brief break in Nashvil [...]

    6. I'm always drawn to the paranormal, it doesn't matter what form the main characters have, I do love my books with a twist of fantasy throughout, but I'm always eager for those books that stray from the traditional and offer me up something a little different and this is what Lorelei's Lyric did for me. I know there are many many Mermaid tales out there, but the truth is I haven't really ventured in that direction, so this was like a breath of fresh air for me, something different from my usual b [...]

    7. WOW! I loved everything about this book from the cover to the story! The cover to me depicts the innocence that most see when they think of mermaids. However, there is just so much more below the surface to them. Lorelei is such an amazing heroine for this tale. I loved her strength and her determination. Being a mermaid she has a voice that when she sings, she can kill those who hear it. Vance the oh so sexy mortal rocker singer hears her sing, and almost dies himself. Lorelei, decides against [...]

    8. I love mermaid stories! This one didn't disappoint. I was drawn to this book from the get go because my daughter is named Lorelei, after the siren of German myth. Although, German spelling is Loreley, but Americans would most likely mispronounce that version more. Anyway, we follow Lorelei and her sister on a "vacation" to the USA. She accidentally "Calls" a mortal man almost to his death. She feels obligated to nurse him back to health. In the process she starts falling for him, which goes agai [...]

    9. Ah, the perfect fantasy romance. Two singers with troubled pasts meet. Was it chance or fate that brought them together? Can they overcome their individual obstacles? Better yet, can they conquer the forces actively trying to keep them apart?I was drawn to this book by the mermaid aspect. The storyline moved along smoothly enough, although a little more explanation of the author's imagining of supernatural beings and their power structure would have been helpful. All in all, I liked this story a [...]

    10. Just lovely. This is a story about personal demons and the cleansing power of music.I've been watching emerging author D.B. Sieders. Her first book Red Shoes for Lab Blues had me smiling and nodding (before becoming an author, I was a scientist like her heroine). She nails the details and the way an analytical person approaches life and love.In Lorelei's Lyric, she does it again, but this time shows her ability to write characters who are musical artists! Lorelei is a mermaid, and Vance is a roc [...]

    11. I typically read contemporary, but the gorgeous cover drew me to this story. Then when I saw it was about a mermaid who loves more than anything to sing but kills men with her song, I could not resist!From page one I was transported into Lorelei’s world of fantastical creatures and elemental guardians mixed with the very real world of a rock musician dealing with substance abuse. Heavy but whimsical, passion-filled and humorous, LORELEI’S LYRIC is a precious, romantic story that left me with [...]

    12. Emotional and entertaining!Lorelei's Lyric is a unique and wonderful blend of paranormal and contemporary, of mermaids and rock musicians, all set in the vibrant city of Nashville. Kudos to Sieders for tackling a storyline that deals with the harsh reality of loss and addiction, and also of courage and redemption. I was pulled in by Lorelei and Vance, the southern humor, and a memorable cast of characters. But the battles, both internal and external, kept me hooked. I highly recommend and can't [...]

    13. Nixies in Dixie is brilliantly clever with its unique blend of Southern humor and poignant mermaid mythology. Modern-day siren, Lorelei, traveling to The Music City of Nashville? One helluva great premise that hooked me at page one! I fell in love with this shape shifting siren and her romance with aspiring guitarist Vance Idol. One of those rare books that will have you laughing and sighing and crying, touching your heart just as great music touches your soul. A must read!

    14. I loved it! Combining a mythic river mermaid with a dangerous voice and an addictive-A-type rock musician in , set in and near the river flowing through Music City (Nashville) - what a creative idea! I found myself lost in the world created inside this fantasy novel, because it was just real enough. Plus, I already believe in the power of song. Thank you and I can't wait for Sieders' next elemental novel.

    15. Despite the fact that I needed a dictionary, because I'm Dutch, I couldn't stop reading. This story about an elemental creature and a mortal is very enthralling and it takes you to and fro from another world to the modern city of Nashville. I don't want to let out more of the contents since it is better to read the book yourself, but it contains danger, addiction, love and sex. I like the way it is written and I'm looking forward to book 2.

    16. The heat between Lorelei and Vince is hot enough to singe a mermaid's scales. Great backstory with a believable love between the two main characters (despite the tail and the magic!) Great start to a great series!

    17. Deep characters. This story is about recovering and discovering your own way. It was a good read over all. The pace felt a little off in places, and lacked some explanations here and there.

    18. 5.0/5.0One mustn’t be fooled by the unhurried pace in this steamy paranormal romance.Read full review in the 2015 November issue of InD'tale Magazine.

    20. I was ready to DNF this at almost 50%. The idea of the steamy interactions during his withdrawal was almost enough to have me close it down. However I kept reading I mean I only had half left I got this far and I am not a quitter. It got better, the story was interesting enough and additional characters were good. Not enough for me to pick up the next one.

    21. Technically well written, intriguing premise. But the overall execution just didn't come together for some reason. No deep emotional connection. Could be simply personal preference. If you like mermaids, it's still worth giving this a read.
