Review: The Siren by Tiffany Reisz

The Good: Great writing! I was really impressed with the writing style, prose and extensive vocabulary. Coincidentally this book is about a writer who has just been given a chance in a lifetime to work with a prestigious and talented editor. I absolutely loved that this story had a lot of twists that were hardly predictable. Just when I thought I knew where the main plot was going, the story would switch gears and I can say confidently that until I read the last page of this book, I didn’t know how this novel was going to end. Character development was also terrific. There is one characters that I hated for the first third of the book, then loved at the half-mark and completely despised by the end.

The Bad: This is not a romance, not erotica either. If I had to describe the style I would say that this book is what Fifty shades of gray would have been if it had been written by Dan Brown. Anyway, don’t be too harsh on the category. I don’t think the author is responsible for the way the publishers marketed this book.

The Ugly: This book is dark, even for the mature reader. The subject of S&M along with D/s is the soul of this book.  I’m not one that likes to read about people receiving or inflicting pain, so at times it was hard to read.

You can find this book at Amazon and Barnes & Noble
