Three teenage descendants of Medusa, now united, must claim their heritage to fight the monsters escaped from the abyss.

Gretchen may have known she was a descendant of Medusa long before her sisters--after all, she's spent her life fighting the monsters that escape the abyss--but that doesn't mean it will be easy to teach the other girls the ropes.

Greer has pressing social commitments on her plate and precious little time to train in her newfound powers. But that wretched second sight won't leave her alone, and her fabled heritage seems to be creeping into her fashionable life.

Grace has worries closer to home--like why her brother, Thane, has disappeared. He's hiding something. Could it possibly be related to the secret heritage the triplets share?

Why I'm Waiting!

I read and absolutely LOVED Sweet Venom, the first book in this series. And when I say LOVE, I MEAN LOVE!! Like, could NOT put it down. So far I am just so into this story because it's action-packed, the characters are awesome, and it takes such a fun spin on mythology. If you guys haven't read the first one in this series yet, I highly recommend getting your hands on Sweet Venom before this September!

  6. SIGH. I had such a bad time with Oh. My. Gods. and Goddess Bootcamp by Tera Lynn Childs that I was completely put off all her other books. But you and I have pretty similar taste (except The Selection ;D), so maybe I'll check out Sweet Venom and keep my fingers crossed for this one.

    Happy WoW!
