Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!
Medusa’s Sisters by Lauren J. A. Bear (August 8, 2023 by Ace)
“A vivid and moving reimagining of the myth of Medusa and the sisters who loved her.
The end of the story is only the beginning…
Even before they were transformed into Gorgons, Medusa and her sisters, Stheno and Euryale, were unique among immortals. Curious about mortals and their lives, Medusa and her sisters entered the human world in search of a place to belong, yet quickly found themselves at the perilous center of a dangerous Olympian rivalry and learned—too late—that a god’s love is a violent one.
Forgotten by history and diminished by poets, the other two Gorgons have never been more than horrifying hags, damned and doomed. But they were sisters first, and their journey from sea-born origins to the outskirts of the Parthenon is a journey that rests, hidden, underneath their scales.
Monsters, but not monstrous, Stheno and Euryale will step into the light for the first time to tell the story of how all three sisters lived and were changed by each other, as they struggle against the inherent conflict between sisterhood and individuality, myth and truth, vengeance and peace.”

There are so many Greek myth retellings coming out! This sounds really good😁
And I hope they keep coming! Love me some greek mythology inspired fantasy! 😀
I enjoy some of these books that take a deeper look at some of the tales from mythology. I loved Circe, and this one looks worth trying.
I think it was in the email pitch I was sent – the publicist did compare this to Circe, and I will confess that was a big reason why I was sold on this 🙂
Ooh I added this to my tbr a while ago – I love Greek mythology so the title intrigued me – but this is my first time seeing the full blurb & cover. Hope you enjoy this when it comes out.
I hope we’ll both enjoy it! The cover is quite lovely!
