Spawn Of Medusa was a great read. I had a little issues with the romance and the ending but I love Greek mythology and really enjoyed this book. Ambrosia was a fantastic character to read about. She had so much spirit and wit. I loved her fierceness. Nobody knows she's Medusa's daughter (because someone else boasts about being the spawn of Medusa) and she's working as a prostitute in a brothel run by Hercules (I kid you not). One night she meets Perseus and that's the start of one hell of a jour [...]

This was such an epic journey of love and belonging!I loved the casual, personal touch Mary gave to such awesome, immortal beings like the Fates. In a good way, they reminded me of the three fairies from Sleeping Beauty instead of the fearsome creatures illustrated in mythology. In my opinion, to portray the being responsible for death as believably wholesome and matronly takes talent!The way the gods were linked to Ambrosia kept me very interested to see how they would interact with her. Again, [...]

Spawn Of Medusa was an interesting spin on the tale of Medusa and mythology. I had issues with the romance aspect to this story, it just didn't feel real to me. I don't think I would ever have had the hots for a man that killed my mother, that seemed pretty far fetched. Even more so when your constantly referring to him as your enemy. The whole prostitute thing also just kinda took away from it, specially when they called Hercules a pimp. The adventure in this book made up for the strange romanc [...]

As a long time fan of the film 'Clash of the Titans' and a lover of Greek mythology in general, I thoroughly enjoyed reading Spawn of Medusa by Mary Bernsen. The book was so organically connected to the events of the film, it felt like an official sequel.It would be unfair however, to regard The Spawn of Medusa in this context alone. This is an adventure story replete with mythical monsters and demigods seen through the eyes of an engaging heroine.Ambrosia is the daughter of Medusa the Gorgon. R [...]

I received this book from Netgalley in return for an honest review.Spawn of Medusa is a first time read from the author Mary Bernsen. Ambrosia (the heroine and the main and only pov in the story) was born as Medusa died at the hands of Perseus (the hero). Perseus takes the baby and drops her off at a cottage where the Fates live, believing they will take care of the vile creature by eating her. Some 20 years later Ambrosia is grown up and working as a prostitute in Hercules brothel/bar. She has [...]

Initially, I thought this was going to be a far more dark book than it turned out to be which, for me at least, was a great thing! Authors writing about mythology usually choose to go either the romantic-action route or the twisted-horror route. Since the book title included "Spawn" I was pretty sure this was going to fall into the twisted-horror genre. It didn't. It is a beautiful story of finding love and rebuilding a family. What a wonderful surprise!This is a unique take on the story of Medu [...]

This was a short read for me and I had it finished in one day. The Spawn of Medusa was one of those books you start reading and can't go to bed until you have it finished. I really like Mary's writing style, she keeps you interested and wanting to know what is going to happen next. I do not know very much about Greek mythology but what I do know made this story feel real. It was refreshing to not read a lot of cursing and sex scenes in a story. Mary was able to keep this book on the adult level [...]

Ambrosia convinces Perseus to allow her to join his adventure, and they journey to Medusa's cave. An adventure with many trials, and along the way Ambrosia falls in love with Perseus, but she must consider what will happen wh [...]

I found this book to be intensely romantic and profound. What better way than a mythology retelling to explore the big themes of love, betrayal, unknown enemies, monsters and unexpected allies. Throughout the book, the tension level is high as Ambrosia wrestles with guilt as she falls in love with the handsome Perseus, her mother's killer.Along the journey, I was enchanted by the Greek gods and demi gods. Hercules as a bar bouncer? Genius. The Fates raising an orphan? Intriguing. And along the w [...]

I am really torn up about what to rate this book. In fact, I’m going to make my decision as I write this review and see what it feels like in the end.I like reading about Greek mythology. I like how the possibilities are endless when you write a story that’s based on myth, and some authors really do come up with some original ideas. Not only they tweak what happened, but they also play around with the characters and create many more different versions and you get to take your pick. This was [...]

While her beauty may help her advance and become the most desired woman there, she is just waiting until she can fulfill her promise. Th [...]

Spawn of Medusa, Villain's Love Book 1, Mary BernsenReview from Jeannie Zelos book reviewsGenre: Romance, Sci Fi & Fantasy I used to love the Greek and Roman legends as a schoolgirl so when I saw this I thought it would be a fun read. Well, in many ways it was a fun read, it’s fresh and something a bit different, it takes the old stories and gives them a new twist, turning them to suit what author Mary has made into a sweet romance, butmehow for me it just didn’t work. I liked the part w [...]

A book full of deception, seduction, lies, and love. Adventure and twists around every corner, I really enjoyed every bit of this new spin on the tale of Medusa.

As she feels closer to that day, she decides to put all of her plans into action. Starting with her life style choices to put herself in the path of [...]

Instead of killing the handsome demi-god she decides to seduce him into joining him on his quest to kill her mother for good.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Ambrosia is the daughter of Medusa who was beheaded by Perseus. From the time she can remember, Ambrosia's life mission was to pay Perseus back for the death of her mother which is why she chose a certain professionAmbrosia is a whore in Hercules's brothel and eventually she stumbles upon Perseus who's current mission is to find Medusa, who he finds out isn't actually dead. Sparks fly between the two, but Perseus is filled with guilt.his wife died and here he is f [...]

I recieved this book from Netgalley in return for an honest review.I started this book and finished it last night in a short few hour period. Ambrosia; our female lead, works in a brothel run by Hercules and is searching for the man who killed her mother Medusa. She appears to be a strong woman who sticks up for herself (although later in the book I question how weak she can appear) and is up for an adventure with Perseus; the demigod who 'killed' Medusa. I love Greek myth so I was really excite [...]

I received Spawn of Medusa as a free ARC novel. Spawn of Medusa is a very interesting novel, with all your favorite hero's, Perseus & Hercules! The girl in the novel is Ambrosia, who is supposedly the daughter of Medusa. Now, I haven't read any Greek Mythology in awhile, so, I had to go look a few things up. However, they are on track with Greek Mythology & other facts. The story itself is very interesting, and keeps you interested in what is going to happen with Ambrosia and Perseus, an [...]

Entertaining story and a nice break in the usual fantasy/paranormal books. I would have starred it a 4 if some sections had a little more detail -- such as Poisidon's Atlantis. Several of the sections were described vaguely; giving me the impression that the author had a fully envisioned setting or scene, but that it didn't translate to the book or that there was some overly heavy editing that cut out some of the depth. In addition, some of the anachronisms were a little hard for me to over look [...]

As a huge fan of Greek mythology and gods and demigods. I couldn't wait to read this. All legends have truths and lies. Ambrosia is the daughter of Medusa. She is hell bent on revenge, to kill the man who not only took her from her mother but killed her mother. Perseus. By dumb luck Perseus comes into the brothel where Ambrosia works and from there starts their journey to find out if Medusa is still really alive. There are angry gods, back stabbing, death, and love. It really was a good read and [...]

I discovered that once I started reading this book that I could not put it down. It moved along at a great pace from beginning to end, has interesting characters and a fantastic story that will keep you entertained throughout. This is a fantastic read that needs to be experienced. This needs to be on your must read list, no doubt about it.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Love, adventure, deceit. I love anything that has to do with the Greek Gods and this story had an amazing twist. I wouldn't have thought about the Gods in this way but I truly enjoyed this version. I can't wait to read more from this author. Grab your copy now and see what the fuss is about. I highly recommend it!

Mary Bernsen gives us a wonderful and beautiful Greek Mythology story. I love when villians turn out not to be what we thought they were. Can't wait to read the next installment!
