Novella Review: Forgotten Lyrics by Amanda Hocking

Forgotten Lyrics: A Watersong Story
Title: Forgotten Lyrics
Author: Amanda Hocking
Series: Watersong #0.5
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
Publication Date: October 30, 2012
Length: 60 Pages

Don’t miss this imaginative new short story set in the magical world of Watersong—a realm of enchanting beauty…and terrifying secrets.
Aggie is a mythological creature on a secret mission.  Lydia is a young woman from a magical family with no real powers of her own. And Daniel is a high school boy who’s made it his duty to protect his deeply troubled older brother.  Then one fateful night, their lives collide in a terrifying accident that changes them all forever. And beneath the surface, the ripple effects of the accident will have more impact than anyone could ever guess...changing not only their future, but the fate of an entire town.

Forgotten Lyrics is a brief but insightful look into the Watersong world, before the events of Wake. This novella was another great installment from Amanda Hocking. Easily read within an hour or so, it gives more details about events mentioned in Wake, without giving anything away.

The novella takes place for the most part five years before Wake. This story is about a specific event in Daniel’s life, and how that event interacts with Lydia and Aggie. For fans of Wake, it is a great read and highly recommended. It is also a great introduction to the series for those who are curious, but have not yet to read any of the Watersong series.

Forgotten Lyrics gives insight into characters that have made appearances in so far in the series, and some that have not yet. I have been a fan of Amanda Hocking since reading some of her earlier works, and her Watersong series is currently one of my favorites. I cannot wait for its continuations in Lullaby and Tidal.
