3.5 stars. I have mixed feelings on this installment of the series, to be honest. The Aphrodite portion gets 4 stars, but the Persephone portion only gets 3. It frustrates me when the ending previously enjoyed by the main characters of the first three books is interrupted the the next three books. Best way I can explain is by saying that Mission Impossible 3 remains my favorite; although the subsequent movies were really great, I have a hard time enjoying them because they damaged the ending of the 3rd movie. In the case of Venus Rising, the factor that prevents me from outright hating the ending feels kind of like it was just plugged in there in response to an editor saying, "Hey, you'd better fix this." I don't know. But I'm frustrated, and I'm still left with a "Hey, you'd better fix this" mentality.
Aside from that . . .
The book was enjoyable, on par with the rest of the series. I appreciate Aphrodite more than I did when she was initially introduced, and I am happy with the way she has evolved throughout the series. In the previous book, I felt sympathy towards Medea. I still do, but she's also a bit tricky. I feel bad for her, but sometimes she also tried my patience. Overall, though, she seemed aware of her flaws and weaknesses and tried to counteract them. In general, the characters feel developed; even the minor characters are pretty easy to distinguish from one another.
Note: Minimal swearing, but an f word (I think only one). I don't get it--why? Just leave it out. You don't need it.
