Waiting On Wednesday (a bit late)

Yesterday got weird and my WOW post didn't get posted . . . it's a book I very much want/am waiting on, though, so I'm putting it up today despite it being Thursday ;-)

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

My pick for this week is Sweet Shadows (Medusa Girls #2) by Tera Lynn Childs

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?

I really loved the first book, Sweet Venom - it reminded me of a Buffy season ("With kickbutt girls, boys I can see become crush-worthy, and monsters galore - it's like a Buffy fix in book form. I LOVE it!"), I loved that the sisters were unique, individual characters - and the first book left me eager to read the second.
