Watch out, all you mythological beasties roaming the streets of San Francisco – there’s a new kick-ass team of demon-fighters coming your way!
Forget vampires and werewolves, award winning American author Tera Lynn-Childs has knocked up an awesome urban fantasy, chick-lit alternative that’s perfect to curl up with.
Marking the beginning of a sensational new trilogy, Sweet Venom is a fast paced adventure centred on three beautiful but unusual sisters: Grace, Gretchen and Greer. It’s a wild, Buffy-esque story which threads mythology from the past with urban adventure from the present. While each sister comes into the story from a different angle, all three are united by a fantastic mythological secret.
Grace has just moved to San Francisco. It’s a tiny bit scary, starting over, but it gets scarier when a minotaur walks in the door. And even more shocking when a girl who looks exactly like her turns up to fight the monster…
Gretchen is fed up of monsters pulling her out into the small hours, especially on a school night. Getting rid of a minotaur is just another notch on Gretchen’s combat belt, but she never expected to run into this girl who could be her double in the process.
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 in myth, must reunite and embrace their fates in a world where monsters lurk in plain sight.
Sweet Venom is out now, and you can get your hands on it here.
