Official Summary: “THE GODS ARE FUNNY.
Except when you piss them off.
Then they suck.
They really, really suck.
Alexander Weiss discovers this tidbit when he inadvertently insults Athena, Goddess of Wisdom, and she casts him away on a forgotten isle filled with statues.
Being marooned is bad enough, but the fact that the island is also the home of Euryale, elder sister to Medusa, makes the situation a touch worse. The only thing keeping Alex from being petrified is the fact that Euryale has taken a liking to the blundering mortal.
What follows next is a wild, adventurous tale filled with heroes, gods, monsters, love, and war that is nothing short of legendary.” – Goodreads
Review: A really unique take on Greek mythology. It was a fresh, new change. You didn’t know what you were going to get. Modern day and age mixed with Greek Gods can go so many different ways. Even the way they view love is so outdated. We like each other, let marry straight away. I did find that a little annoying but then again I just chalked it up to being from an era where that was just the way things were done.
I know you are thinking oh god not another love triangle. It wasn’t as annoying as I was expecting it to be. It didn’t really feel like a love triangle. But then again I kind of ignored the feelings between Alex and Jessica. So don’t let that put you off.
