Gr 7–10—Triplets Gretchen, Grace, and Greer are the teenage descendants of the gorgon Medusa. They must locate and guard the gateway to the Abyss, protecting Earth from the monsters that would otherwise overrun it. Some of the gods of Greek mythology are lined up against them, while others lend them support. Before the sisters look for the gateway, they must rescue Euryale and Sthenno, Medusa's sisters, who can mentor them as they learn to wield their powers. They also plan to seek out their biological mother who gave them up for adoption as babies. Will she be able to answer their many questions? This book concludes the "Sweet Venom" trilogy with an action-packed climax and triumphant resolution for the three girls, their families, and their boyfriends. Character development is not a strong point, but readers looking for plenty of action and a new take on mythology will enjoy this series. Purchase this volume where the first two books have proven popular, as readers unfamiliar with the series will find this a confusing place to start.—Misti Tidman, Licking County Library, Newark, OH
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. (Paranormal adventure. 12 & up)

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 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.

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.
