Review : Sweet Venom


Sweet Venom
Tera Lynn Childs
Katherine Tegen Books
Grace just moved to San Francisco and is excited to start over at a new school. The change is full of fresh possibilities, but it’s also a tiny bit scary. It gets scarier when a minotaur walks in the door. And even more shocking when a girl who looks just like her shows up to fight the monster.

Gretchen is tired of monsters pulling her out into the wee hours, especially on a school night, but what can she do? Sending the minotaur back to his bleak home is just another notch on her combat belt. She never expected to run into this girl who could be her double, though.

Greer has her life pretty well put together, thank you very much. But that all tilts sideways when two girls who look eerily like her appear on her doorstep and claim they're triplets, supernatural descendants of some hideous creature from Greek myth, destined to spend their lives hunting monsters.

These three teenage descendants of Medusa, the once-beautiful gorgon maligned by myth, must reunite and embrace their fates in this unique paranormal world where monsters lurk in plain sight.
My Review :  Amazing, outstanding, and action packed. Those are the words to describe this book. I must admit I bought this book not knowing anything about it I just loved the cover. I am glad I did. I loved the story of the three girls and how different they are. I enjoy mythology and this new take on Medusa is delightful to read. Once the action in this story starts hold on to your seat. Fast paced and very enjoyable this books makes you hold your breath at points and laugh out loud at others. Great read for anyone who likes Mythology and thinks they know everything there is about Medusa and her sister.
