Overview

Greer has always known she was privileged, though she had no idea how special her second sight made her, even among her triplet monster-fighting sisters. But when a god starts playing with her mind, can Greer step up in her pretty high heels to prevent anything from stopping her sisters' mission?

Grace loves her adopted brother, Thane, but now that he's back and has joined her sisters' team, it's clear his past is full of dark mysteries. She wants to trust him, but will Thane's secret put the girls in even more danger?

Gretchen knows she can rely on her sisters to help her stop the monsters. But after getting to know some of the beasties in the abyss, she finds her role as a huntress comes with more responsibility than she ever imagined. How can she know what her birthright demands of her now?

The girls cannot hesitate as they seek the location of the lost door between the realms, even as monsters and gods descend on San Francisco in battle-ready droves. In this exciting conclusion to the Sweet Venom trilogy, these teenage heirs of Medusa must seek the truth, answer the ancient riddles, and claim their immortal legacy.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Victoria Vogel
Childs' conclusion to the Sweet Venom trilogy is a compelling wrap-up sure to delight readers. In Sweet Venom (HarperCollins, 2011/Voya October 2011) and Sweet Shadows (HarperCollins, 2012/Voya June 2012), the reader was introduced to Grace, Gretchen, and Greer, descendants of Medusa who were separated at birth and reunited as teens. They soon realize the gifts they have been endowed with at birth and their destiny to claim their legacy after first saving the human realm from invasion by the monster realm. Now they are traveling in the dark realms of the underworld to seek the hidden door between the realms, and facing battle after battle with monsters who want nothing more than to kill them. Each sister has a special ability which also comes with complicated responsibilities. Now readers come to the end of the story, where the sisters find themselves each paired with a romantic counterpart, adding to the tension. The battle scenes abound, and Childs certainly knows how to write a good fight, as well as a good character. The monsters alone are well-written and just come alive in the narrative. The battle scenes are not gory violent, but the anticipation is heart pounding. There are secrets that are revealed at the end that will blow the socks of fans of this trilogy. Lovers of the Greek mythology plot-alikes that are trending in YA fiction right now are sure to love this trilogy. This last installment may leave readers craving more as it ends with some unexpected surprises. Reviewer: Victoria Vogel
Kirkus Reviews
Greek mythology comes to life in this action-packed third installment of the Sweet Venom series, with paranormal 16-year-old triplets fighting the ancient-but-not-dead Olympic gods and monsters in contemporary San Francisco. Beginning in the middle of a fierce battle in the Abyssos, the realm of monsters, this story abruptly picks up where the second book left off. Triplet descendants of Medusa, each endowed with a different supernatural power, Gretchen, Greer and Grace fight their way to Mount Olympus to rescue their Gorgon aunts, Euryale and Sthenno. Once they've rescued their supernatural relatives, they search for the door that opens the Abyssos, which, as the Key Generation, they are destined to open lest all the monsters die. Most of the gods oppose them, but a few nicely quirky monsters help the girls, especially cute Sillus, a monkey creature with a limited vocabulary and a comic touch. Three possibly untrustworthy boys enter the mix to add the briefest touch of romance. The story is told in first person in alternating chapters dedicated to each girl, and readers will have to pay attention to the chapter headings, as all three girls speak with identical voices. The ending leaves the door slightly open for another sequel but supplies enough satisfaction for fans. As a whole, this series is a decent bet for teen girls graduating from Rick Riordan.

    Will there be another?

    There really should be because there are still many looses ends at the end if this book. The author couldpul it off without it being painful so yeah. The not colpletely over still things to find out ending i my only complaint. Iwould read the next book i she made one though.This was areally good series and i loooooooove percy jackson so i had really high expectations in the greek mythology bit. Both riordan and childs have their own spin on it so it a little different. I higly reccomend this trilogy to mythology loving teen girls. -demigod princess

    A fine ending to the series. This book was heavily plot driven as opposed to being character driven. I think I would have given it more stars had it not necessarily been the opposite, but had more character depth. I also think that the ending may have been a set up for another book. I have seen so many authors who don't know when to stop. They start with a trilogy and in turns into 6 books. Anyway, though I would love to read more about the girls, this was a good ending,I don't think there needs to be more. Hopefully Ms Childs agrees.

    I Also Recommend:

    I did like this series...

    To be honest, I hated Oh. My. Gods. It was beyond pathetic.

    But I honestly enjoyed this trilogy with its non-stop action and a new twist on Medusa, the only mortal Gorgon.

    Loved It!!!!!!

    I loved this exciting ending to this series. The girls learn to work together and you can tell that they truly love each other after all they have gone through. It is hard for them to admit it at times, but they get over their insecurities and admit that they care about each other and also the boys that have come along for the ride. Each of the couples is so cute and unique in their own way and by the end you can see that they will be together for a awhile. I loved all the monsters, even the scary ones. There were twists and turns, some I saw coming and some I didn't. Altogether I loved this series and would recommend it to anyone who loves Greek mythology with a twist.
