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 . . .

Sirenz is one of those stories that is just a super cute read. Its really light and funny and doesn't take much brain power which is great for a nice relaxing quick read.

The story follows Meg and Shar after a horrible incident that ends up with them being indebted to Hades, Lord of the Underworld. They are forced into a contract that involves them trying to get a soul into the underworld and if they fail they will both be forced to into the Underworld forever.

Meg and Shar are the complete opposite of each other. Meg is a goth and Shar loves pink. Both are very strong characters and even when they are faced with temptation they are strong willed enough not to give in. What I really like about them is that at first they really don't like each other. But as the story continues they end up best friends. I prefered Meg out the two. Meg is just one of those girls who turn head but she doesn't even know it. She catches the attention of Jeremy and soon Shar is very jealous of her. At first I really didn't like Shar, she came across very selfish and up herself but I did end up liking her.

Now of course I have to mention Hades, oh Hades, I would have given into him straight away. There is just something so sexy and dangerous about him. I was drawn to him like a moth to a flame. Hades is Haute!

Sirenz at first took me a little while to get into. The begining is quite slow but it gradually picks up and about halfway through I was eager to see what would happen next to Meg and Shar. They really did end up in really funny situations.

Charlotte and Natalie have created a very fun and light read that has a little bit of everything. Love, friendship, hot males and of course a Greek Gods what's not to like. Yet you probably thinking why I didn't rate the book higher? Well the book was a good read. However, as mentioned above it was quite slow to start and I really didn't like Shar at first. It could have been a little longer and with a bit more action but overall a good read!

Rate: 3/5
