Description from Amazon:
Ancient lore leads to present danger in the final book in the dark and sexy paranormal romance trilogy about a descendent of Medusa, set in a richly reimagined New Orleans.
Her fate is not set in stone.
Having temporarily defeated Athena, Ari races to break the gorgon curse that has plagued the women in her family for centuries. Her one lead sends her on a quest for the Hands of Zeus, an ancient relic last seen in the charge of New 2’s ruling elite, the Novem. But if there is one thing that Athena desires as much as revenge, it’s the Hands of Zeus—and Athena always gets what she wants.
Before either can locate the Hands, the statue goes missing, and a trail of blood follows those who once protected the relic’s secrets. Ari knows that her city, her friends, Sebastian—her life—depend upon her finding the statue before Athena. And with rumors an ancient power is on the rise, that may not be her only concern…
I am sooo excited about this book! To a large extent because it almost didn't happen (Simon originally only bought book 1&2) - can you think of anything worse than NOT having the final book in a trilogy?! I need to know what happens with fierce Ari and Sebastian and Violet and I'm a sucker for the world building :)
Have you heard of the Gods and Monsters trilogy? If not, you can check out book 1, Darkness Becomes Her, here. Does this sound like something you'd enjoy? Also, please link me up to your own pick so I can add to my ever-growing, scary reading list ;)
