Romance, Greek Mythology
Release Date: February 13th, 2014
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.
Whenever I found out a book is about or has Greek mythology I have to read it, and this one was no different. What really made me take notice was the thought that Medusa, a woman who we all know to be a monster isn’t actually one at all. This book will have us forget everything we once knew about Medusa and her curse. What we know to be a fierce, evil, villain turns out to be nothing but a lost young girl who was innocent and was punished not for something she did wrong but for something horrible that was done to her.
I really enjoyed this book. I loved taking a look into an old story with new twist and plots. The Deep End of the Sea, was a well written look into the journey of a girl who was attacked and instead of letting it defeat her, she slowly tried to more on with her life. This book had a great storyline and flowed the whole way through. While reading you could actually feel Medua’s emotions and you find yourself rooting for her to pick up the pieces and become a stronger person.
The Deep End of the Sea, is a book you don’t want to miss. It sucks you in from the beginning and hold you captive the whole way through. Never letting up. It had family, friends, enemies, tears, joy, love, secrets, betrayals, heartache, and truly wonderful moments. Do yourself a favor and get this book. Heather Lyons is truly and author.
