The main plot is featured around Euryale, who is trying to avenge the death of her sister, Medusa. Euryale is not a fan of violence but sometimes it just be like that. She is especially disgusted with the other Olympians on the island who hunt for sport, not out of necessity. She's quite the outcast, but her husband, Alex, always seems to be there for her no matter what shenanigans she is getting herself into. She struggles with containing the rage that wants to consume her, rage over her sister's death, or rather her murder.
It's set in modern times, smartphones included. Aphrodite even has her own variant of a dating app, Divineder. Poor Zeus, just like in Greek mythology, is quite the womanizer. I strongly related to his difficulty in remembering his password and the struggle that ensued during the reset. It had me laughing so hard I woke up the neighbor's dog.
There's a lot of interesting dynamics and the author is quite skilled at telling a few different storylines at the same time while managing to connect them rather seamlessly. His ability to do this without it becoming burdensome to keep track of what's going on, while keeping it interesting is remarkable.
This book is humorous, very descriptive, and captivating. I didn't know much about Greek mythology except for what I vaguely remembered from the Wishbone TV series, but the author has a fantastic way of catching a reader up to speed on the who's who and what's what. I highly recommend this book, I hadn't read the first one but had no problems understanding what was going on. I look forward to reading the first book in the series.
I love the way Surlak-Ramsey writes. It is as if this author is across from you at a table, telling you the tale, aloud. His is a very interesting and easy reading style, indeed.
The ancient Greek gods and goddesses are up to their old tricks, at each other’s throats, and proving that gods and demigods of the Greek culture are much more human than divine. I enjoyed that this series sets these creatures, or creators, in modern times, including the conveniences and even electronics of our day.
Surlak-Ramsey is indeed a master of plot and subplot construction. The books are both detailed, and the reader needs to pay attention carefully to where this author is taking him.
The characters are deep, (How could gods not be?) and well placed in this fast-paced story. I enjoyed them all.
I have never before read modern times stories involving the Greek gods of old and have to say that these old characters fit in our times better than I could ever have imagined. Perhaps there really is nothing new in the world.
I recommend these two books not only to Greek scholars or Greek god 'fans,' but to anyone who enjoys a fresh idea in the written word. I can pretty much guarantee that you have never read books like these before.
I am very happy with my purchase of both books and would buy them again.
'Rise of the Gorgon' is a story that reads like a normal romance novel with all the regular ups and downs from dealing with affairs of the heart and just regular lust, and there are the various everyday family issues we all deal with from time to time. Galen has written a novel full of description from the appearances of the gods and goddesses and the monsters to the surroundings around them in their various situations. It was fun to picture all the gods and goddesses in present day garb and still think like a god and goddess of antiquity. 'Rise of the Gorgon' is a true escapist read that will have the reader turning the pages. The way that Galen has named the chapters were quite ingenious and each fit the chapter and the reader could see the imagination of the author Galen Surlak Ramsay and it was fun to see the world of Greek mythology come alive in many ways.
