Sweet Venom

Publisher: Templar

Gretchen has been fighting monsters for years. As a descendant of Medusa, she is duty-bound to keep humans safe but, until now, thought she was on a solo mission.

When a slobbering Minotaur turns up in a San Francisco nightclub, and Gretchen arrives to fulfil her destined role, she despatches the monster without a problem – but is unsure how to react when she unexpectedly bumps into a girl who appears to be her identical twin. As mythical monsters begin to prowl the city in increasing numbers and a third sister is discovered, things start to get really interesting – and dangerous...

This brilliantly imaginative thriller is crammed with feisty characters, mythical references and repulsive beasties. The first in a series, it will leave readers eager for the next instalment.
