From the book description, I anticipated that this book would be told through three perspectives: Aphrodite's, Ares's, and Medea's. Sadly, Ares didn't get any chapters--I was looking forward to seeing inside his head more. But that's okay.
Aphrodite has definitely grown on me since she first appeared earlier in the series, and so has Ares. I like how although he's the god of war, he is not truly bloodthirsty. Bevis is successfully giving the characters in Greek mythology more dimension than the characteristics to which they're commonly reduced, and even those have received a bit more depth and explanation. It's interesting to see how the actual myths about Aphrodite are playing out in these books. I was wondering how Hephaestus would play into things, and although there's not anything between them, we're given an idea about how she ends up marrying him (not a spoiler--it's Greek mythology, and it doesn't even happen in this book).
Medea practically required my pity and sympathy right from the start, though not intentionally. She's not a "pity me" character, but she still has lots of room to grow a backbone. Her life has been a hard one, to put it lightly, and her troubles didn't stop when Jason pulled her out of her previous circumstances. She's the type of character that makes me want to jump into the book and bust up some faces, and I kind of hope she does it herself. I was torn on her . . . condition, I admit. Part of me sided with her, and part of me with Jason. Well, not with Jason, necessarily--we just shared one part of his opinion. It's a fine, very thought-provoking line.
I hated Jason from the beginning. There's not much else to say about him right now except I still hate him.
Goodreads doesn't have the next book, Venus Rising, listed yet. But it's supposed to come out sometime this year.
Note: Some swearing, but I don't recall f words. Implied sex (really, nothing on the page--yes!).
