Summary from Goodreads
What if all the legends you’ve learned were wrong?

Brutally attacked by one god and unfairly cursed by another she faithfully served, Medusa has spent the last two thousand years living out her punishment on an enchanted isle in the Aegean Sea. A far cry from the monster legends depict, she’s spent her time educating herself, gardening, and desperately trying to frighten away adventure seekers who occasionally end up, much to her dismay, as statues when they manage to catch her off guard.  As time marches on without her, Medusa wishes for nothing more than to be given a second chance at a life stolen away at far too young an age.

But then comes a day when Hermes, one of the few friends she still has and the only deity she trusts, petitions the rest of the gods and goddesses to reverse the curse. Thus begins a journey toward healing and redemption, of reclaiming a life after tragedy, and of just how powerful friendship and love can be—because sometimes, you have to sink in the deep end of the sea before you can rise back up again.



10 Things You’d Never Expect from Medusa

Everybody thinks they know all about Medusa, right? A monster from Greek mythology with snakes on her head and eyes so deadly, one look can turn you to stone . . . but there’s a lot more to her than meets the eye! Um, metaphorically, of course.

  1. There are a dozen snakes on her head. Each one has a name, but she often refers to them as the Girls. They do not talk, though.
  2. Despite what rumors may say, Medusa does not enjoy killing people.
  3. For each and every victim of her curse, Medusa creates a life story for them. She takes care of the statues by ensuring they remain clean and in good condition.
  4. One of her favorite things to do is garden. As life is precious to her, she’s constantly propagating new plants.
  5. She loves to learn new languages—she’s lost count to how many she knows.
  6. She also loves to cook and wishes she could enter a baking competition.
  7. Medusa also firmly believes in helping others. Giving to charity is one of her greatest pleasures. She’s sold many antiquities in her temple to amass the money to do so.
  8. While her life is fairly solitary, she is not entirely friendless. One of her closest friends is a blind fisherman who first discovered her when he still had his eyesight. She sent him away before he could see her.
  9. Her best friend is Hermes, the messenger of the Greek gods and goddesses. It took her a long time to trust him, though, especially after what happened to her in the past.
  10. While it isn’t practical to have them, Medusa loves animals.

  1. Don't know if there are books about Aphrodite, but she's the goddess I would like to see a book written on her.
