I swear I love these Medusa stories.
Ari just discovered that her biological mother was in an insane asylum and committed suicide. With teal eyes and silver hair Ari has always been a loner even though her adoptive parents have loved her and trained her (bond bailsman). Ari wants to know the truth; especially after her mother leaves her a note stating to run.
But the only way to find that truth is by going to New 2 New Orleans. Once she is there she finds out that almost everyone knows who she is.
As stated before I love Medusa stories and this story is no different. Ari was a likeable character. Not too stupid, not too headstrong or too naïve. But with that being said I was completely surprised at how easy she was able to open up to Sebastian (the too good to be true boy). Let’s assume the events in this book take about a week? Well she falls in love with him after day two. Actually she falls in love with everyone by day two (she moves in with a few people); which made me look at her as if she wasn’t as “hard” as she was being portrayed in the first three chapters. I felt that was too cliché, fake, and unnecessary.
I also loved Athena. Man, she cannot stand Medusa and that hate is strong. Granted Athena is acting more like a powerful witch than a God but as I recall most Greek Gods were acting human anyway until they didn’t get what they wanted *Shrugs* Keaton did an amazing job with her character and I am curious to know if there will be a bigger backstory. I really want to know more about Athena. Yes, in this book you find out why she is being evil but there has to be more i.e. I want there to be more.
Overall the book gets 9 out of 10. Fast paced, a bit cliché but worth the read.
