It begins with a boring
narration and the thrilling
part just started almost in the
middle of the story.

If you're thinking that this
whole thing has to do about
mermaids. Sort of, but its not.
They call themselves 'sirens'.
Sirens are greek mythological
creatures who were once
human but cursed by a
goddess. They are shape-
shifters, they can turn into a
mermaid with those sharp
teeths, or turn into a giant
bird, and back to human
form. But what they eat?

I have read all Rick Riordan's
greek mythology books. And
it seems that sirens are never
appeared or somehow aren't
emphasized in his works (Im
sorry because Rick's
characters have already
encountered gazillion of
monsters, so I can't
remember them all). So
WAKE caught my attention.

I somehow liked how the
story went. It was just that
there were some cliche parts
like a group of perfect hot
girls came to your place out
of nowhere. And mysterious
crimes started to happen. And
if I were just a little girl
maybe I could appreciate the
love teams between Gemma
and Alex, and Harper and
Daniel. It was not that
appealing. I just didn't find it
romantic at all.

This was not that bad.
Just that it didn't excite my interest. But it still a good book. ( )

Excellent book. A lot of character development in this one, but setting up for book 2 in the series. I've already pre-ordered it. ( )
