You know what is amazing about this Greek mythology retelling? ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING!!
This novel is by Heather Lyons and is all about Medusa who is normally written as the killer of men, completely evil, usually badass which still is in this novel, but anyways im getting away from myself.
In Heather Lyons take, medusa has been wrongfully cursed by Athena after being raped by another god in her temple. >.> Instead of protecting poor medusa she turns her into a monster and curses her away in an island for the rest of her unknowingly ending life. That is until one day Hermes comes into play.
Hermes gets Medusa to speak up and fight back to end her curse. While its all clear to us why the man is doing this Medusa is totally clueless which was slightly adorable but also me wanting to push their heads together. The story doesn’t even end at the plot point as I expected honestly more things and twists happen afterwards that I absolutely loved. Plus lines like below 😀
“When we fall in love, it’s forever love. Even if you decide one day that you do not love me anymore, I will still always feel this way for you.” – Hermes
Also major selling points Hades is in this story as a GOOD GUY. I repeat a good guy! I love Hades and love stories that have him not only hilarious and totally awesome, but not evil.
