The Siren (Book one in the Laments of Angels & Dark Chemistry series) by Meg Xuemei X is equal parts young adult, fantasy, science fiction and dystopian genre all wrapped into one. The story is a refreshing and unique take on the mythical creature known as the Siren. The plot revolves around a main protagonist named Lucienne Lam, the strong female lead who is the Chosen One and fated to rule as the last of the sirens. During the course of the story, Lucienne embarks on an epic journey to find The Eye of Time before her enemies find and destroy her first. Enter love interest Vladimir, the mysterious and complicated Ashburn, relentless and unrelenting enemies along with high-powered battle scenes – well, let’s just say this book is one exciting ride!
I really enjoyed The Sirens by Meg Xuemei X. The author has crafted such a rich and engaging world featuring a riveting cast of colorful, realistic and multi-dimensional characters. The vivid descriptions, emotional entanglements and action-packed sequences will have readers up long after bedtime just to see what happens next. A central theme in the story and one the plot line revolved around is making choices and ultimately making the right choices. Every day we are faced with choices, and whether we want to make them or not, we still must choose. This is a very deep and introspective theme that will have readers reflecting on their own choices in life. Fans of young adult, paranormal and fantasy genres (and those who tire of the endless vampire, zombie and werewolf novels) are sure to find a new favorite author in Meg Xuemei X!
