Do You Have Sweet Venom?

Afternoon Loverlies! I have finally read one of the books in the mythology challenge I decided to do this year. It is called Sweet Venom written by Tera Lynn Childs.

Synopsis From GoodReads:
 Grace just moved to San Francisco and is excited to start over at a new school. The change is full of fresh possibilities, but it’s also a tiny bit scary. It gets scarier when a minotaur walks in the door. And even more shocking when a girl who looks just like her shows up to fight the monster.
Gretchen is tired of monsters pulling her out into the wee hours, especially on a school night, but what can she do? Sending the minotaur back to his bleak home is just another notch on her combat belt. She never expected to run into this girl who could be her double, though.
Greer has her life pretty well put together, thank you very much. But that all tilts sideways when two girls who look eerily like her appear on her doorstep and claim they're triplets, supernatural descendants of some hideous creature from Greek myth, destined to spend their lives hunting monsters. These three teenage descendants of Medusa, the once-beautiful gorgon maligned by myth, must reunite and embrace their fates in this unique paranormal world where monsters lurk in plain sight

I thought this book was easy to read and an interesting take on the Medusa myth. I always found Medusa's story to be an interesting. I don't know but snake hair and the power she has, just seems interesting. It makes me think of her as beautiful in a way. I am going to have to find the other books at the library, to find out what happens. There was one part that left me guessing, there are these boys in the story that like each girl. They are almost to the point of stalking them kind of. The writer didn't really explain about them, I'm hoping they are explained in the second book. :) I am assuming that they have powers also. We shall see!! 
Ta Ta For Now!


  1. This sounds pretty good I love the cover and mythology is so fascinating! I've loved books with mythology since I read the Percy Jackson series. For some reason I thought this was book 1! 'll have to keep an eye out for this one! Great review, Robin!

    1. Thank you!! and Confused what you mean about book 1. If you mean this book, I believe it is the first of the series. :)
