Rise of the Gorgon (Myths of Stone Book 2)

Rise of the Gorgon (Myths of Stone Book 2) continues the story of The Gorgon Bride. It is essentially the story of Greco-Roman gods living contemporary lives in Elysium and Earth. The story does not take itself too seriously which adds an appropriate amount of lightness to the material and makes the characters and plot a lot more tolerable and enjoyable.
The primary protagonist is Euryale, Medusa’s sister. Medusa was murdered and Euryale holds a grudge against the Olympian that murdered her along with the other Olympians on the island who seem to not care that Medusa was murdered. This barely contained rage drives her actions and is the cause of the various situations she finds, or places, herself in throughout the book. Alex, her husband and an Olympian, is always there to support her.
There are a lot of plotlines and characters to follow but the author does an excellent job of making it easy to keep track of who is doing what and why. This is quite the feat considering the scope of the story and number of characters involved. Despite being one who does not know, or at least doesn’t remember, much about the Greco-Roman gods, it was not difficult to follow or understand the motivations behind each character.
This is a fun story with lots of interesting characters. The idea to place ancient gods in modern situations makes for an interesting setting and keeps things fun. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a book with a sense of humor and memorable characters.
