We are thrilled for Heather Lyons' THE DEEP END OF THE SEA! THE DEEP END OF THE SEA is a New Adult Fantasy set for release February 13, 2014 and definitely one you need to add to your TBR pile!
About THE DEEP END OF THE SEA:
What if all the legends you’ve learned were wrong?
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.
This book was a truly exceptional creative piece of work. I was hesitant to read about Medusa, knowing the monster she is always portrayed, but Heather put an amazing twist to the character.
She spent just enough time letting us get to know the real Medusa in the book. Then she slowly sprinkled in other characters from Greek mythology. I really enjoyed getting to know Aphrodite aka. Dite.
Then there is Hermes, sigh. She made him into a totally drool worthy hero. I loved all aspects of his character. She had me wishing I had met him in real life, he was so awesome.
I love all of Heather's books and I loved this one as well. This is a five star read and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a different kind of paranormal romance.
