Light and fun
Shar & Meg couldn't be more different. Shar is all about designer brands while Meg is more vintage. Shar is pretty and hip while Meg is more Goth. The two of them are roommates and bicker frequently, but Shar is bound and determined to at least exist on peaceful terms with Meg. They're stuck together for the duration of their time at school, and Shar isn't about to let a little bickering get between her and her dream school.Was this review helpful?

Over Christmas break, Shar invites Meg to attend a blowout sale at midnight. She's looking forward to finding lots of designer things at steep discounts. What better way to bond with your fashion-challenged roomie? When the two girls meet a hot guy at a pizza joint, they both begin to drool and the claws start to come out. Later, when the two of them end up bickering over a pair of Vivienne Westwood red patent leather heels, it seems the friendship is just as bad off as it was when the night began. It all comes to a head when the two bickering girls end up accidentally pushing the guy into the path of a speeding subway train. Uh oh.
This is where the smoking hot Hades comes in. He has a job for them. All they have to do is sign his contract to become Sirens, luring an unsuspecting recluse to the Underworld by the end of winter break. Hades has had a problem getting the guy himself. What Shar & Meg don't realize when they sign the contract is that the designer Hades has asked them to bring in is deaf and blind. How is Shar supposed to use her power of enchanting men with just a look and Meg her beautiful voice to lure him away?
Sirenz is light and fun, offering plenty of laughs along the way. It somewhat reminded me of Spoiled mixed with some Greek mythology. The writing is quick and witty and each of the character's voices is distinct, though seem somewhat familiar. The story isn't overly deep and it wasn't one that I couldn't bear to put down, but I did enjoy it and found myself chuckling throughout. I definitely enjoyed the second half of the book. This is when I felt the pace really picked up. Anyone who is a fan of fashion, mythology and spoiled school girls will get a kick out of this one.
