How do you fight a god of light who has been seduced by darkness? That's the challenge Medea Keres must meet. Posing as a wealthy young heiress in modern day Atlanta, no one knows she is the original Medea, the sorceress from ancient Greek legends. As priestess of the witch goddess Hecate, Medea is charged with hunting demons that would otherwise overrun the world. Now she must face a far greater adversary. One of the twelve shining Olympian gods has turned rogue, violating the edict against human sacrifice. As the body count quickly rises, Medea knows her enemy is getting stronger. With the help of the underworld nymph Orphne and the hero-god Heracles, she must find a way to unmask the evil so that the other Olympians will take action. But as she probes deeper into a blood-soaked labyrinth of suspense and intrigue, Medea finds a net of deceit and treachery that will require all of her cunning to escape.
I received this book for free from Blog Tour in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I am a pretty big fan of mythology, and Morgan St. Knight did not disappoint in her rendition of Medea and her friends Orphne and Heracles.
In this book Medea has to hunt down baddies while still maintaining some visage of her true identity, without letting anyone know who she really is. Tall order? yup, but whatcha going to do when you are a priestess of a pretty kick ass goddess.
I think that the characters are well written and you really connect with them. They are not flat, meaningless people on a page, but real people with real issues. The conversations are really good, although some times for me they feel a little forced, but it does not detract from the book at all.
I enjoy Ms. St. Knights writing and I really think that she has a really bright future in the writing world. I am looking forward to reading the sequel to this book as well as any others that she has in the works.
It is a solid 4 fanged book. Also I suggest anyone that enjoys mythology to give it a chance, you may find you really love Medea in the present day.
