Medusa, a Love Story by Sasha Summers

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

Rhonda's Review 

Beautiful Job Sasha!!

First of all, let’s all take a look at this cover………

I’m going to say that it depicts what’s inside perfectly.

I haven’t ever thought about Medusa outside of the ever ingrained images in my mind from Clash of the Titians. I’m talking the old Clash of the Titans with Harry Hamlin.

As I read this book, I looked up a little of the Greek Mythology surrounding Medusa, and it appears there is tale that she wasn’t always the hideous creature that she became. Sasha Summers took this story and made it sweet, beautiful, sad and heartbreakingly gorgeous.

Medusa is the human daughter of Phorcys, a Sea Titan, who has bartered her more than once in her life. Now the Priestess to the Goddess Athena since she was a child, Medusa has lived a life of servitude, never being free to make her own choices. She and her guard, Artison start to fall in love, and all she longs for is to be free to be herself, and know this beautiful man that holds her heart.

Medusa is beautiful beyond measure, and Poseidon has set his sight on her, and will not back down until he has her, thus setting in motion all the evil games that are played at the cost of Artison and Medusa. Finally Medusa gains her freedom, and the first person she runs to is Artison. With only two days before he is to set out to war, they are finally able to be together. This was such a sweet time in the story, and I fell in love with Artison from the beginning. He was so sweet with Medusa, and their short time together was beautiful. And a short time would be all they would have.

The Gods seem to enjoy toying with others like pawns. ME INCLUDED!! There were times I had to stop reading because it was breaking my heart what was happening to these two. It was like there was constantly an obstacle, and the fates were not on their side. It seemed as though nothing good could possibly come of this story.

Sasha Summers did a beautiful job with her writing, and the characters. I'm really looking forward to the next book! If you like Greek Mythology I highly recommend this book.
