    Awsome Book

    In Anne Ursu's, The Siren Song, Charlotte Mielswetzski is on another astounding journey. This time she must save her parents and everyone on the Isis Queen, a large cruise ship. This started as a normal educational vacation about American History, until it turned into a very unfortunate predicament. Little does she know that the evil Philonecron still seeks revenge from the defeat in the previous book, The Shadow Thieves, since he was sentenced to live in the upperworld by Hades, a very powerful Greek God. Philonecron manages to get back his Zero, his name for Zachary Miller(Zee). Charlotte ends up saving her cousin, Zee, even if she didn't plan it at the beginning. Charlotte is not alone on this perilous journey. Jason Hart is helping her save her parents and everyone on the Isis Queen, or so she thought he was doing. Well the big question is, does she save her parents and the rest of the people on the cruise ship, or does she fail and meet Poseidon's wrath? Find out in Anne Ursu's, The Siren Song. I loved this book, it felt as if I were in Charlotte's shoes. Anne Ursu will take you on an adventure from the dark, ominous underworld, to the blue, clear oceans, to the brilliant Olympus. Ursu relates the now modern world to the magnificent past of the Greek Olympians. She brings the past to the present. If you liked the Percy Jackson Series, you will most likely love the Cronus Chronicles. I know I did, and I was a very big Percy Jackson and the Olympians fan. Read this book! You don't know what you're missing out on!

    A Great Book

    Charlotte, Philonecron, and Zee are back again for another adventure. When we last saw Charlotte and Zee they had escaped from the Underworld after they had thwarted Philonecron and his evil plans to overthrow Hades and toss all the Dead into Tartarus. Philonecron got exiled from the Underworld and sent to live out his days in the Upperworld. Well, lets just say Phil wasn't too happy about that and he thought up a new plan to Rule the Universe and it involves Poseidon and of course Zee. The Siren Song is a great book, with action, adventure, and comedy. Although I found most of the book centers around Charlotte and her adventures with trying to save her parents and a shipload of other people. Although I really like Charlotte I would have liked Zee to have been a bigger part of the book. Overall, the book was a great and fast read- I couldn't stop turning the pages, it really drags you into the story (in a good way). :)

    Another wonderful book by Anne

    This one is a very great sequel to a series that in and of itself is great. I just love how she mixes real life with mythology and makes it for the most part realistic. A couple parts are things that wouldn't happen, but overall very clean and precise writing, good flow, good good good everything basically! lol

    Anne Ursu Does It Again

    This book was awesome. If you loved the Shadow Thieves then you'll love the sequel, The Siren Song. Seriously, it was awesome. Anne Ursu did it again and created a modern, great Greek mythology story. Everyone should read this book!!!

    Amusing, Suspenseful Read!!!

    I really enjoyed this second installment in The Cronus Chronicles. It was funny and exciting, with Greek mythology at the heart of it all. The Siren Song brings us back to stubborn, resourceful Charlotte and shy, chivalrous Zee. Their seemingly ordinary world of middle school is interrupted once agin. I really reccomend it.

    Ye Gods (and Goddesses), This is Great!

    Well, we're all going to read the final Harry Potter book aren't we? But I just discovered another constellation in the firmament just as brilliant: Anne Ursu's second installment in her Chronos Chronicles trilogy, The Siren Song. My children, 17 and 13, and I were delighted by this book. The Greek gods with their laughably vain and all too human foibles again threaten to wreak havoc on the lives of the two teen protagonists. Fortunately, Zee and Charlotte again outwit the immortals but not before we're treated to captivating encounters with Poseidon and his aquatic circle of sycophants, clueless (but very recognizable) parents, and the deliciously evil Philonecron. What separates this effort from the sea of other teen books is its inventiveness, wit, and comfortable intelligence. It's suffused with such easy charm that you're captured and carried along until the sea voyage ends all too soon. No better time can be spent than in the company of this author. Bon Voyage!

    The Cronus chronicle series is about greek mythogoly so I think it's about the siren's. Ugly things good voices. they sing your fatel flaw. But I still wonder what it is about.
