Summary

The 11th installment in the New York Times best-selling A Twisted Tale series asks: What if Meg had to become a Greek god? 

After Hercules proves he's a true hero and regains his godship, all seems right in the world. That is, until Zeus tells Meg that she can't be with Hercules because she's, well, mortal. Luckily, Hera has a solution, offering Meg a chance to prove herself worthy of a spot on Mt. Olympus - as a god. All Meg has to do is complete a mysterious quest. 

The mission? Oh, just to rescue her ex's current wife from the Underworld. The ex-boyfriend she saved by selling her soul to Hades. The ex-boyfriend who immediately moved on to someone else while she was stuck in the Underworld. Can Meg put her past behind her and use her quick-wit to defeat monsters and gods alike, including the nefarious Hades? Will she finally figure out her place and contribution to the world? Or will her fear of commitment have her running away from an eternity of godhood with Herc? 

Written by the author of Mirror, Mirror and Conceal, Don't Feel, Jen Calonita's latest twist is sure to delight and surprise.

Not sure how to feel about this

It was OK. The voice over was all over the place with accents and weird inflections, and made it seem far more childish than it needed to be.
The writing itself was questionable with odd bits of phrases taken from the movie and used over and over again in stange ways. Hercules just seems to say 'Meg!' 50% of the time and has no real personality. Still nice to see she has a back story of some sort

Just the fact there's a story of an alternate ending caught my eye.
You won't be disappointed

A continuation of a beloved movie

The narrator did a great job making the voices different from one another. I loved the sassiness of Meg you see in the movie come out in the book. If you enjoyed the animated version of Hercules then you will enjoy this too. It was interesting to see how the author created different scenarios. There was clear foreshadowing as you ask yourself why do they keep mentioning that, but that was part of the fun you didn't know what was coming, but could make predictions. I enjoyed it. Good clean fun.

Lovely Tale

I listened to the entire story in 8 hours. I couldn't press stop or pause. I found myself interacting. I do wish the narrator could have changed her voice more or been more animated with characters other than Meg, but i loved it.

Predictable and Dull

I felt so bored listening to this, I almost pulled off the side of the road to change it. When I got to my destination and had 30min left, I couldn't bring myself to finish it. Maybe I'm just not the intended audience, but I missed the strong, independent, feminist Megara from the movie and instead found a lead that was nothing special at all.

Enjoyable, even in your 30's.

Loved it, some moments were slow and over thought sharing or slightly over dramatic... but I half think that only stood out to me cuz I read it in another review. This was my first twisted tale and I'm hooked. Thanks to all that made this happen.

So much fun

I thought this was great addition the to movie Hercules. The narrator sounded a lot like movie Megara so it was easy to be transported to that world.

Nostalgic, an easy read.

i certainly enjoyed it
i wish there was more of her actually being a god vs the journey of getting to be a Greek god.
