Medusa: A love story review

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.

My review:

Medusa has always been a bit of a mystery to me, always portrayed as a monster. This story has changed my mind, she is shown as a young woman full of love and compassion. Always pulled in many different directions, she stays loyal to her goddess. Sasha Summer has opened my eyes to an amazing character I never would have met.
This was a really fun read, full of love, loss, and adventure. I grew to love Medusa and Ariston as though they were old friends as I read this book. I've always loved stories with Greek mythology in them, and this one for sure did not disappoint me. If you gte a chance, pick this book up and read it!!

About the author:

Sasha Summers is part gypsy. Her passions have always been storytelling, history,
and travel. It's no surprise that her books visit times past, set in places rich with
legends and myth. Her first play, 'Greek Gods and Goddesses' (original title, right?
), was written for her Girl Scout troupe.

She's been writing ever since. She loves getting lost in the worlds and characters
she creates; even if she frequently forgets to run the dishwasher or wash socks
when she's doing so.

Luckily, her four brilliant children and hero-inspiring hubby are super
understanding and supportive.

Sasha is an active member of RWA and several Texas Chapters. A self-proclaimed
movie-addict, she is full of all sorts of useless movie tidbits and trivia.
