I love Tera Lynn Childs’ books because they are just so much fun and accessible to a broad audience. I think some YA really pushes the limits between YA and Adult, while I enjoy the spectrum, some readers and parents don’t feel the same as I do. I think Childs’ books are great for the adult crowd like me who enjoys YA just as much as more mature titles but are tame enough for the avid preteen and everything in between readers. Sweet Venom was a wonderful mix of today and mythology making Sweet Shadows one of my must reads next month.
The summary is below and an excerpt can be found on the author’s website here!
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 hiding 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.
Sweet Shadows will be released on September 4th. Pre-order your copy on Amazon here.
