Book Review ~ Medusa, A Love Story

 

 

Title: Medusa, A Love Story

Author: Sasha Summers

Genre: Mythological Fantasy

Publisher: Crescent Moon

Rating: 5 Bats

“It’s said love can change a person. Medusa wasn’t always a monster…

Medusa is ruled by duty, to her Titan father and the Goddess Athena. She’s no room for the tenderness her warrior guard, Ariston, stirs. When Olympus frees her from service, her heart leads her into the arms of the guard she loves… and curses her as the creature with serpent locks.

Ariston goes to war with a full heart… and dreadful foreboding. He learns too late of the danger Medusa faces, alone, and a Persian blade sends him into the Underworld. But death, curses, nor the wrath of the Gods will keep him from returning to her.

Poseidon will use Greece’s war to get what he wants: Medusa. He does not care that she belongs to another. He does not care that she will be damned. He is a God, an Olympian, and she will be his.”

A very interesting twist on the Medusa mythology – really enjoyed it. The characters were well fleshed out and seemed to breath on the page. The story itself is beautiful and tugs on the heartstrings.  *is partial to Poseidon out of all the Greek gods* hehe
