    Wonderfully entertaining read!

    Let me start by saying that I love, love, love this amazing cover. It is vibrant and fun and stunningly beautiful. This is a story of coming to age with thirteen-year-old Asudem on a journey of self discovery. She's thirteen, her head is covered with 14 beautiful and individual snakes. Each one has their own name and personality. Her eyes burn red and can turn living objects to stone with a heated glance.

    Asudem is accompanied by her friends Drella and Pretal. They are very detrimental in Asudem's quest to find her destiny. They make an equal amount of friends and enemies during this adventure and it will keep you wondering what is going to happen next.

    Asudem's journey would not be as fun, adventurous, or enlightening without all the help and guidance she receives along the way. This book is a great read for those looking for a new adventure into mythology and the Gods. Very clever read.

    Thank you for buying my book!

    I am, Stacey Darlington, the author of Athena's Curse. I just wanted to thank everyone who has bought a copy of my book and a special thanks to those of you who have taken time to write a review.

    The second of the series will be coming soon. It is called Circe's Revenge. Please visit my website at athenascurse and join my mailing list. I am available for special appearances, book talks at schools and for "book parties" where I come in and talk about my book wearing a costume of my main character, Asudem.

    I think smart people are cool so keep reading!

    What fun!! Thumbs up!

    I have always enjoyed Greek mythology and bought this book despite the young audience appeal. I was delighted at the concept and just adore the characters. Fun from beginning to end.

    One of the best books i've ever read

    Kurt - athena's curse is one of the best greek based book i've ever read. asudem as a daughter of medusa really doesn't think like medusa. asudem doesn't want to use the weapon that she already has but medusa turned every hero to stone. but it was a very well written with well detail. this is a book with things that cannot be in medusa books.

    Courtney - I throughly enjoyed hearing Kurt's perspective on Athen's Curse....he was delighted by the characters so much so that he gave up swimming because he couldn't stop thinking of the characters! Wonderful job Ms. Darlington...please continue delighting us with your imagination and wit!
