Gretchen may have known she was a descendant of Medusa long before her sisters--after all, she's spent her life fighting the monsters that escape the abyss--but that doesn't mean it will be easy to teach the other girls the ropes. Can she rely on Grace and Greer, or even trust herself to keep them safe? Greer has pressing social commitments on her plate and precious little time to train in her newfound powers. But that wretched second sight won't leave her alone, and her fabled heritage seems to be creeping into her fashionable life.
Grace has worries closer to home--like why her brother, Thane, has disappeared. He's hiding something. Could it possibly be related to the secret heritage the triplets share?
With the warring factions among the gods of Olympus coming for them, the creatures of the abyss pushing into their world, and the boys in their lives keeping secrets at every turn, the three girls must figure out where their fate will take them and how to embrace the shadows of their legacy.
Yes, this book was exactly what I wanted! It picked up after that massive evil ending of the last book, and then yeah, things happen! And they are sometimes actually good for the girls! And then it ended, and I was sad-mad-excited-impatient, because I just want more, and it was done!
This book was just fantastic! The world deepens, we learn more about their abilities, and these characters, and this world. And ideas chance! It was just so fantastic! I loved reading more about these sisters as their lives grew more complicated!
There are a few threats to the girls-the ones that want to kill them before they open the gate and release the monsters, those who want to kill them after the open the gate so they can't close it, and those that who can't do anything to help them, just talk. Which is kinda worthless, though some of it's helpful!
I enjoyed how these girls changed in this book. They're dealing with their powers, besides Gretchen, who's had them for a while, but then she has a different growth. Because she winds up in the realm that the monsters want to escape, and learns more about them, and grows to respect and care for the group of good monsters!
I just enjoyed this book so much, it was so entertaining, and I just didn't want it to stop!
