Nghi Vo does it again. I was a huge fan of The Chosen and the Beautiful so couldn’t wait to get my hands on Siren Queen. The story follows Luli, a Chinese American girl, who is determined to make it big on the silver screen. It would be difficult enough in real-world 1930s Hollywood, but in Vo’s Hollywood there are blood bargains, magic, and monsters. Luli may just be a monster herself.

I was blown away by Vo’s incredible imagination as she paints a version of Hollywood that feels real. It’s hard to write a review for this as I’m still mulling over all the fantasy this book contained while still feeling like an Old Hollywood tell-all.

I listened to the audiobook version which was narrated by Natalie Naudus. She does a great job with different character voices. I think I would have liked it even more had I read it in print format as I feel that I sometimes missed something when my mind wandered.
