I'm in my mid 20's and I did find the book a bit on the cheesy side, however I still enjoyed it. Really like reading about mythology, so that's what made it worth while.

I love me some greek mythology! 3 girls, descendants of Medusa, fighters and guardians of mythological beasts, supposedly rewritten histories, mysterious boys all encased in a young adult contemporary novel! I thought this was seamlessly done in Sweet Venom. Tera Lynn Childs blends mythology with contemporary very well (if you haven't read Oh.My.Gods. and Goddess Bootcamp, GO! so good!) I loved that each girl has a distinct personality and the supporting characters are vibrant as well (WHAT IS UP WITH THANE?!? I MUST KNOW LOL!!) I like how each girl has her doubts and flaws (Gretchen tries to hide it behind toughness, Grace behind her smarts, and Greer with her ice princess attitude) but the journey this destiny is carrying them on will only see them get stronger.

There aren't a lot of books that talks about the descendents of Medusa, and the author portrayed Medusa differently. Very unique, I loved it.

Pretty cool book, it's girly at times but theres also action for dudes and I have to agree that Tera Lynn Childs did leave the book off at a massive cliffhanger. Awesome read check it out

One of the first good teen books I've read lately. It was great. My only problem is that it's the first book in a series and ends like that. I'll just have to wait for the next one.
