Synopsis: 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.

He would be a good friend
just sayin Posiden and Athena had been my favorite Greek God and Goddness since I read Percy Jackson and Greek Mythology and damn Lyons know how to create an antagonist. I hate Posiden in this book and an antagonist should be hated, and I hate Posiden so much I want to skip everytime I read about him. Just die already Posiden but gods are immortals right? so I can’t kill him?! Overalls I do love this book, “The Deep End of the Sea” is one of my favorite so far in this year. I would recommend this book to people who don’t really like Greek Mythology, you will love it after reading this. If you already love Greek Mythology like me, you would love it as much as I do. Have nothing to read? Again I recommend this book to you. Rating: ♦♦♦♦♦
