Description

Bickering frenemies Meg and Shar are doing some serious damage at a midnight sample sale when they find themselves arguing over a pair of shoes - with fatal consequences. One innocent bystander later, the girls are suddenly at the mercy of Hades - the god 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 any individual whose unholy contract is up. But just because they have an otherworldly part-time job now doesn't mean Meg and Shar can ignore life's drudgeries (work) or pleasures (fashion!). Finding that delicate balance between their old and new responsibilities turns out to be harder than they expected, especially when an entire pantheon of Greek deities decides to get involved. Then there's the matter of the fine print in their contracts.show more

Our customer reviews

A quick and light read. SIRENZ combined myth and fashion together and created a good and entertaining story. The story was told from the alternating perspectives of the two main characters Shar and Meg, and it’s an effective way to emphasize the contrast in their personalities. The two weren’t BFFs at first and there were times that they even dislike each other. What I liked the most is that despite all their differences, they were able to work together to complete their mission and in the process, reconciled those differences and became friends. The mythology part of the story was actually funny. It was amusing to imagine the girls turning into feathered and clawed Sirens, considering how vain they are – especially Shar. As always, the gods and goddesses always complicate things for humans, even those who are doing favors for them. Hades was frustrating, Demeter was such a bitch and Persephone was one jealous wife. But I never knew I would be happy for an appearance from Hera, because she’s not usually the helpful kind. I must say I liked this version of Hera. Sirenz is a short novel but I immensely enjoyed reading it. It was funny, entertaining and clever. I liked the characters, the plot, the turn of events, the dialogue and the execution of story. I’ll be looking forward to reading the next book.show more
