Meet Grace, who just moved to San Francisco. It's a tiny bit scary starting over, but it gets scarier when a minotaur walks in the door. And even more shocking when a girl who looks exactly like Grace turns up to fight it. . . Gretchen is fed up of monsters pulling her out into the small hours, especially on a school night. Getting rid of a minotaur is just another notch on her combat belt, but she never expected to run into a girl who could be her double in the process. . . Greer has her life pretty well put together, thank you very much. But everything tilts sideways when two girls who look eerily like her appear on her doorstep and claim they're all sisters. . . These three teen descendants of Medusa must reunite and embrace their fates!

Medusa A Tale Of Vengeance by A.M. Brosius


Original Title: Medusa A Tale Of Vengeance

When Stephan Dragutin, Crown Prince of Serbia, violates his father’s safe-conduct for an Embassy of Hellenes, all hell breaks loose. The Commonwealth decides on a nearly unprecedented course: a punitive Incursion into Serbia. The Hellenic Muster gathers at the border. Can Nikos restrain Eleni as she seeks revenge on those who tortured and murdered her friends? Can he master his own desire for vengeance? In Athens, two young women recently freed from bondage in Serbia beguile Selos. His quasi-sister Nikkisi is coming of age, showing interest in one of his friends. And with the Muster at war in the north, Venice threatens the City. As the Hellenic Muster closes in on the Serbian Royal family and the Venetian Navy descends on Athens, every member of Estelli’s Line takes up some part of the burden. Those too old for war, and those too young, prepare to defend Athens. And young people ‘court and spark’ while the Balkans are consumed in blood and fire.

The Medusa Gaze In Contemporary Women S Fiction by Gillian M. E. Alban


Original Title: The Medusa Gaze In Contemporary Women S Fiction

This book offers striking insights into the desires and frustrations of women through the narratives of impressive contemporary novelists. Crafting its analysis on the gaze as presented by Lacan and Sartre, the book demonstrates how the subject creates her own ego against her alter egos or hostile others in the mirrors facing her, offering insight into women’s powers and weaknesses. The first two mirroring chapters trace the women stalking its pages under a panoptic gaze, as they learn how to revert their look defiantly back onto others. Some win assurance through their own assertive gaze; others are stared down, reduced to psychic trauma, madness and even suicide beneath the demeaning force of the looks of others. These magnetising gazes are turned against the reader, offering insights that take us through a carnival hall of mirrors. The book then goes on to show how androcentric views such as Freud’s perceive Medusa mothers as monstrous, splintering them from their daughters in the Electra syndrome. The efforts of mothers to nurture their children may be slighted as inadequate, with the mother’s nurture condemned as devouring. The following pair of chapters present Medusa and inspiring goddesses motivating and reverting evil through the ‘evil eye’ of their powerful gaze or inspirational force, or contrastingly condemn them as monstrous Gorgons, trapped in enmity, rivalry and rage. These literary discussions illuminate women’s force in the writings of Angela Carter, Toni Morrison, Sylvia Plath, Margaret Atwood, A.S. Byatt, Iris Murdoch, Jeanette Winterson, Jean Rhys and Michèle Roberts. This smorgasbord of authors and their works exemplify English, American and Canadian writing, African American and Caribbean, including realistic, social narrative and magical realist writings, delving into re-interpretations of narratives, tales of the past and visions of dystopian futures.
