Death is a lonely place, silent, or so everyone thinks…
Fern is no stranger to death, or the singing that accompanies it. She has always known when a person is about to die, for the singing foretells it. Her mother passed it off as the oddity never to be discussed, so she learned to tune out the voices until they disappeared for good. Or so she thought.
Then one day, as she fights to bring back a dying baby in the hospital where she works, Fern hears the familiar melody once more. Except this time the voice belongs to a man with ice-blue eyes and black angel wings.
As the baby takes its final breath, the angel sings his last note.
For this isn’t an angel who gives life, it is one that takes it.
One year has passed since that encounter, and just when Fern is beginning to believe it had all been an illusion, the angel returns, and this time he’s not alone. For now there are three Angels of Death and Fern appears to be their next victim.
Fern’s Decision is the first book of Fern’s trilogy and continues the Sisters of Hex story. Although this is the start of a standalone trilogy, to get a full picture of the overarching story line you might wish to read Accacia’s trilogy first.

I’m in utter awe of what Paige has created with this awesome-as-fuck world. Taking legends who have been used over and over and twisting them into your own is freaking cool, and then to add even more awesomeness to the plot? I’m officially sold on the series. Despite my reading experience with some of the books, I just can’t see myself stopping before it’s really even begun. It’s why I’d still recommend this book/series because I feel like you’d really miss out on something awesome.
Fern is a deaf nurse who helps deliver babies. She lives for life and chooses to ignore the beautiful singing that always brings death. For all her life, she’s walked a fine line of what to choose versus what to give in to. I could totally understand her struggle throughout the book, but the reading experience just felt a little like deja vu, considering Accacia (the first sister) had to go through similar decisions about her guys. The books weren’t completely the same, but her struggle was enough to make me feel like I was going to get frustrated again, and I did. Things were a little too short for me. It felt like I got about three major points that were laid out in pages of in-depth details that I couldn’t enjoy because it was still about a normal, modern woman struggling to cope with the fantastical truths spewing from these hot, paranormal guys’ mouths. Fern’s guys were even nicer, to a degree, less aggressive. Her constant, aggressive reaction to them was just a little weird, especially because she seemed so compliant in the beginning. I don’t know, maybe these first-of-three books will always be hard to click with for me. I hope the second one is easier to get into. But yeah, despite the hang-ups I had, the world was still cool, so it’s up to you. I’d say do it for the world that only continues to expand with these trilogies.
