Book I'm looking forward to: Medusa, A Love Story

I've plenty of books on my 'to-read' list and many I still need to obtain, so they are a little lower on the list, but that doesn't mean I'm not very much looking forward to reading those books. One of those books is Medusa, A love story written by Sasha Summers.

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.
Why I am so excited for this book? I love Greek myths for one. I've never actually read any of those old books and stories about all the myths, besides one that I was forced to read by my High School teacher, but I forgot most about that one. However, everything that is written about the gods and myths always intrest me and it might or might not be true, I don't know and I don't really mind if the fiction books are different from the original myths, that actually makes it fun to read. I really can't wait for this one!

Let me know if you guys are going to add this one to your 'to read' list as well, curious to find out if it appeals to all of you as well!


  1. it sounds intresting, as long as it isnt a serie I might buy it :P

  2. It sounds really good. I too have always been fascinated by Greek myths. This will definitely go on my to read list!

  3. Hey Annelie - it is a series :( Medusa isn't in all of them though. Each of the books visits one of the known myths and flips it a little. You don't have to read them all or in order. But I understand about series - it gets kind of tedious sometimes.
    Yasmine - I hope you like it!
    Arlette - can't wait to hear your thoughts :)

  4. Who knows, maybe I will give it a try after I collected all my other series
