Tea Party Princess Review, Excerpt and Giveaway
5 Words: Greek, gods, love, lust, power.
My favourite parts of this book were the beginning and the end. Because they are masterfully written.
I was apprehensive when I started this - you just have to look at how I reacted to the Starcrossed series to know what can happen when someone messes with something I know and love (Greek Mythology). But this is done so well. The way it is written, the reasons given for the changes, this is a wonderful story which I loved from start to finish.
Heather Lyons takes Ovid's story of Medusa, and everything that was wrong about it, and brings her some justice.
This story is hard to read at times, but push through. It's really a story of girl power, of springing back up and being strong. I was smiling by the end. I think because of the rage I felt (mostly at Poseidon and Athena) I ended up feeling pretty good by the end, with a smile on my face.
