Here's the summary from Goodreads: Grace just moved to San Francisco and is excited to start over at a new school. The change is full of fresh possibilities, but it’s also a tiny bit scary. It gets scarier when a minotaur walks in the door. And even more shocking when a girl who looks just like her shows up to fight the monster. Gretchen is tired of monsters pulling her out into the wee hours, especially on a school night, but what can she do? Sending the minotaur back to his bleak home is just another notch on her combat belt. She never expected to run into this girl who could be her double, though. Greer has her life pretty well put together, thank you very much. But that all tilts sideways when two girls who look eerily like her appear on her doorstep and claim they're triplets, supernatural descendants of some hideous creature from Greek myth, destined to spend their lives hunting monsters. These three teenage descendants of Medusa, the once-beautiful gorgon maligned by myth, must reunite and embrace their fates in this unique paranormal world where monsters lurk in plain sight.What I Liked: 1) I generally love anything that has to do with mythology. But this one was just such a fresh concept, new characters, new ideas and new twists that it was a completely new and unique experience. 2) Something for everyone. Okay, not something, as much as someone. There are three MCs in this book, the three sisters. And they all have such different personalities that I can't imagine anyone not being able to find someone to relate to. They are well-developed with unique personalities, so you never have to wonder who is speaking. Their personalities shine through not only in their dialogue but in their actions, so it was really easy to connect and get involved with their story. 3) There is a lot of fun, monster-killing action in this book. I don't read a whole lot of books with monster-killing. Or, if I do, they are all so different that I never think of them as being the same. But the action in this one is taken lightly, almost comically. Almost like these girls are superheros! Which I suppose they kind of are. 4) Fluffy! That may not sound like a compliment, but lighter books are super important to me. Especially one like this, because it is able to make you think, but doesn't leave you searching for deeper meanings. They are completely fun and exciting from the very first page, which is exactly how I'd describe Sweet Venom. 5) The way it ended. I'm not going to say anything else about it, cause I'm mean like that, but talk about getting ramped up for the next book!!
What I Didn't Like: Nada!
Overall thoughts: Sweet Venom is a must-read for anyone with an interest in mythology. Miz Childs has written a unique, engaging story with some kick butt characters that will drag you along with them as they battle monsters! It's a light with some great comedic timing and enough action to keep anyone interested. I'm a self-professed fan of Tera Lynn, and am anxiously awaiting the next book in this series!
