Review: Sirenz by Charlotte Bennardo and Natalie Zaman

Sirenz (Sirenz #1)

Hardcover: 280 pages
Release date: June 8th, 2011
Publisher: Flux
Source: Author
Goodreads Summary: Bickering frenemies Meg and Shar are doing some serious damage at a midnight sample sale when the fashionistas find themselves arguing over a pair of shoes-with fatal consequences. One innocent bystander later, the girls are suddenly at the mercy of Hades, Lord of the Underworld himself. To make them atone for what they've done, Hades forces the teens to become special-assignment Sirens, luring to the Underworld an individual whose unholy contract is up.

Finding that delicate balance between their fashion addiction and their new part-time job in the eternal hellfire biz turns out to be harder than Meg and Shar expected, especially when an entire pantheon of Greek deities decides to get involved. Then there's the matter of the fine print in their own contracts...

“Be careful of your wishes and who you tell”, this quotation would be the main idea of the story of Sirenz.

Frenemies Meg and Shar are fighting over a pair of shoes when they find it in a midnight sample sale. But what they don’t expect is to get in a serious, dangerous consequence with an innocent bystander. After a second they were on the hands of Hades-the God of the underworld. To make them atone from what they done, Hades gave them a new part-time job on becoming a Sirens, luring to the Underworld an individual whose contract is up.

At first, I was not that eager to read it, and because I’m not an aficionado of fashion but when I catch sight of the name of Hades I begun to wonder what it would be if a strong, vicious god of the Underworld become a fashionista--and given the fact that I really adore Hades of all the Gods and Goddesses in the Greek Mythology.

The book was made in just 275 pages but the story is packed of details, it ends in a good way, it does not need a sequel--but if ever they would do I’m glad--and definitely a clear-cut, trouble-free to read. Meg and Shar have a different personality, Meg was the silver-tongued one, and she could get a person to get along with her. While Shar was the total fashionista, she has those beautiful features that could totally bring somebody’s attention. There friendship was not in the affable way, but as they come to their task together, they get to realized that they really deserved each other as friend and that they have similarities too. It was fun to read their journey on becoming Hades Sirens temporarily--if they’ll pull their assignment. Especially if involves a penalty whenever they break the rules.

I learned a lot from this story. How a person should control oneself from behaving towards another person. How a person should take the consequences out of his/her actions and to correct what he/she have done. These are the few things that I learned from Sirenz.

Amazing! Loved it.

  1. I got this one at BEA and I still have not gotten around to reading it. Thanks for the review, maybe this will motivate me to move it up my TBR list.
