Daughter. Sister. Priestess. Protector.
Son. Brother. Demi-God. Hero.
Gifted and burdened with beauty far beyond that of mere mortals, Medusa seeks sanctuary with the Goddess Athena. But when the lustful gaze of mighty Poseidon falls upon her, even the Temple of Athena cannot protect her.
Young Perseus embarks on a seemingly impossible quest. Equipped with only bravado and determination, his only chance of success lays in the hands of his immortal siblings.
Medusa and Perseus soon become pawns of spiteful and selfish gods. Faced with the repercussions of Athena’s wrath Medusa has no choice but to flee and hide. But can she do so without becoming the monster they say she is.
History tells of conquering heroes. Tales distorted by time. Medusa’s truth has long been lost. Until now. Now it is time to hear her truth.
I couldn’t wait to start reading this book, I am a big fan of Hannah’s writing, and this one was really good. At school I was always interested in Medusa and Classical Greek Myths. This is the story of Medusa but Hannah has put a slightly different twist on the story which I found fascinating. If you think you know the truth about things wait till you read this one. Hannah’s written is descriptive but engaging and I look forward to her next book. As brilliant as ever.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
