Spawn of Medusa by Mary Bernsen ♥ Review, Spotlight & GIVEAWAY ♥ (Fantasy Romance)

Passion doesn’t always follow the rules of fate…

Raised by the Fates, Ambrosia, the daughter of Medusa, has spent her life preparing for the day when she would fulfill her destiny and avenge her mother’s murder. But when a man comes forward claiming to be the spawn of Medusa, Ambrosia’s plan becomes a lot more complicated.

Working as a prostitute, she finds Perseus, the man who took her mother’s head. Not realizing who she is, he tells Ambrosia that Medusa is still alive and that he’s on a quest to finish what he started twenty-three years ago. Needing to find the mother she’s never met, Ambrosia convinces Perseus to let her help, and together they discover the secrets that will unseal the cave that has kept her mother captive. But Perseus proves to be different than the monster Ambrosia has always envisioned him to be, and she finds herself needing him, craving his touch. But how can the daughter of Medusa love the man who made her an orphan for twenty-three years, and who kept her from the mother she never met?
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, they were definitely depicted differently than in their legends.The descriptions of everything, namely the castles belonging to the respective gods, were very vivid. I was able to "see" them clearly. These excellent descriptions added a fantastical element to the adventure.

So many times, I found myself saying, "WOW!!!" out loud because there were so many "I never saw THAT coming" moments! (Don't worry...no spoilers here!)I finished this book essentially in one sitting; not because it was a short book, but because I HAD to know what happened! I have always enjoyed learning about Greek mythology, and that made this a very intriguing book!

Ursula knew no other life than one as a slave. Could the gentle touch of a stranger be enough to convince her there is more?
Sold to Poseidon at the age of seventeen, Ursula spent the next four years serving as his submissive concubine.

Now, she must find the escaped trespasser and return her to Atlantis or lose her own head.

In Greece she finds Hercules, the missing girl's former employer. He introduces Ursula to a world of new experiences and freedoms that she has never before known. Though thrilling and intoxicating, her new lifestyle could only be temporary.
