Three teenage descendants of Medusa, the once-beautiful Gorgon maligned in myth, must reunite and embrace their fates.

Grace just moved to San Francisco and is excited to start over at a new school. The change is full of fresh possibilities, but it's also a tiny bit scary. It gets scarier when a minotaur walks in the door. And even more shocking when a girl who looks just like her shows up to fight the monster.

Gretchen is tired of monsters pulling her out into the wee hours, but what can she do? Sending the minotaur back to his bleak home is just another notch on her combat belt. She never expected to run into this girl who could be her double, though.

Greer has her life pretty well put together, thank you very much.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved this! Three sisters. Three different lives. Three very different personalities. Oh and they’re all living descendants if the Gorgan Medusa. Gretchen, Grace and Greer are triplet sisters. All separated as a child to keep them safe. Gretchen the strongly fighter hunts monsters that come from another realm and banishes them right back. She finds herself being pursued by Nick, her classmate from science class who doesn’t take no for an answer. Grace is a computer nerd who lives with her loving adopted parents and brother Thane. They move from quiet suburban Orangval to San Francisco. Here, Grace meets a friend, Vail who is one feisty chick that talks back to queen bee Megan. Thane’s friend Milo drops by and Gracd can’t help but have a crush on the guy. Then there’s Greer, who’s the queen bee of her school and dates a surfer. Her two sisters show up at her door telling her she’s in danger. Greer doesn’t believe them and tells them to leave her alone. That’s until Greer sees monsters on her own. This book had an original plot that I really enjoyed. A kickass twist on Medusa’s tale, I was thoroughly entertained. I did wish something happened though. The development was slow but I guess this book was just the beginning of the series, and it had to describe the journey of finding all the sisters. Overall an enjoyable read. I loved having the three point of views from the three different sisters. It showed various opinions and I quite love how they’re all different.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Glad I Bought This I found this in the discount pile and I figured why not not give it a shot. I loved it. I couldn't put it down. It was action packed and well written. I'm eager to buy the rest of the trilogy!
