This is an interesting exploration into the realm of the mystical. I like how you incorporated the different mythos (Celtic and Greek) into this capturing the feel of being lured into a world that by many people in "modern society" only half understand and only partially experience. (I believe that earlier generations had a more intimate understanding of this since they lived in a world where the mystical was an everyday experience and concepts like scientific rationalism had not yet come to hold sway over the majority of people.)

The song of the Sirens and the call of the Fey are well used here as the snares that entrap the unwary. The ending is quite effective showing that the dream worlds for which many people wish to find can often turn out to be nightmares that are inescapable. Overall, I enjoyed it.
