WOW #17: Sweet Venom, by Tera Lynn Childs and Enthralled, by Various Authors

Waiting on: Sweet Venom, by Tera Lynn Childs

Expected publication date: October 4th, 2011

Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books

Summary from Goodreads:
Grace just moved to San Francisco and is excited to start over at a new school. The change is full of fresh possibilities, but it’s also a tiny bit scary. It gets scarier when a minotaur walks in the door. And even more shocking when a girl who looks just like her shows up to fight the monster.

Gretchen is tired of monsters pulling her out into the wee hours, especially on a school night, but what can she do? Sending the minotaur back to his bleak home is just another notch on her combat belt. She never expected to run into this girl who could be her double, though.

Greer has her life pretty well put together, thank you very much. But that all tilts sideways when two girls who look eerily like her appear on her doorstep and claim they're triplets, supernatural descendants of some hideous creature from Greek myth, destined to spend their lives hunting monsters.

These three teenage descendants of Medusa, the once-beautiful gorgon maligned by myth, must reunite and embrace their fates in this unique paranormal world where monsters lurk in plain sight.
Greek myth! Medusa! Triplets! I've never read a book about triplets. This book sounds so cool, I can't wait to get my hands (my virtual hands) on it!
