Three teenage descendants of Medusa, now united, must claim their heritage to fight the monsters escaped from the abyss.

Gretchen may have known she was a descendant of Medusa long before her sisters--after all, she's spent her life fighting the monsters that escape the abyss--but that doesn't mean it will be easy to teach the other girls the ropes.

Greer has pressing social commitments on her plate and precious little time to train in her newfound powers. But that wretched second sight won't leave her alone, and her fabled heritage seems to be creeping into her fashionable life.

Grace has worries closer to home--like why her brother, Thane, has disappeared. He's hiding something. Could it possibly be related to the secret heritage the triplets share?

Short and Sweet:
 
Tera Lynn Childs has begun to be my go-to author when I need a read that I know I will enjoy. Even after reading a countless number of her books, Childs never fails to disappoint. Sweet Shadows was no exception.
 
Sweet Shadows picks up after Sweet Venom. Our three huntresses are beginning to see how deeply important their destiny is. Greer and Grace are still trying to come to terms with what this destiny could mean, while Gretchen, as usual, plows forward. Betrayal, heartbreak, and more await readers in this exciting second installment of the Medusa Girls series.
 
Final Verdict:
 
There are a number of reasons that I love this series. The characters. The plot. Child's writing. All these factors go together nicely creating a read that just rolls off the page. I sit down, and the next thing I know, the book is almost done. This is the Child's effect.
