Summary

The climactic final volume of The Venom Trilogy by USA Today bestselling author Shannon Mayer.

Humble baker-turned-supernatural Alena Budrene is lovely and lethal, and for the first time, she's owning it. Finally rid of her low-life ex-husband, she's free to date sexy vampire mob boss Remo, who respects her as both a Supe and a woman. She's on good terms with her difficult mother, and she's growing comfortable with her powers.

But just when it seems things are falling into place for Alena, Hera strikes again: the Aegrus virus rages across Seattle, threatening the life of everyone in its path - including Remo, infected by Hades. The only way to stop the carnage is to face Hera and her army in a no-prisoners battle to determine the fate of the human race - and Alena's future.

In a sweeping voyage from the Seattle bar scene to a netherworld populated by murderous gods and monsters, Alena confronts one adversary after another on a quest to set the world right for both humans and Supes and demonstrate her power - to the gods and to herself - once and for all.

Good end to the series

Really liked this as an ending the the series. Sad that it had to come to an end though. I love Greek mythology so enjoyed listening to stories with them in. I especially like Ernie! The narrator did a very good job and I would definitely listen to her again.

Fun and Energetic

I love this Trilogy! I'm not a big fantasy reader, but this was fun, fast moving, and entertaining. I love the way Shannon Mayer incorporated the Greek pantheon with other mythological creatures! A+++!

Loved it!!

What a roller coaster!! So many questions answered and was shocked to discover what those answers were to some. Full of action! What a thriller. Had me wondering if everyone would be saved in time. Thoroughly enjoyed it!!

Superduper . Not really.

When someone tells you there is only one way to get to the underworld that's a clue. When they tell you it is a one way trip that's another clue. When they stand there holding one of the few weapons which can kill you that is the biggest clue of all. Why then was our heroine so surprised when she demanded to be sent and he stabbed her?
Aside from being superduper dim our superduper heroine is also superduper bossy. She tells all the gods and goddesses what to do. And because that's just how the author rolls they do.
The book is superduper unlikely. But despite the high body count it has a superduper happy ending.

a good series with same characters continuing

I was able to enjoy this series mainly because unlike other PNR SERIES this did not have a different character and their love interest constantly change every book or every other book . It was filled with all kinds of supernaturals and the main character was faced constantly with hate towards who she was after she changed called the 1st elementalist. However they were not the only ones filled with hatred towards here. She also dealt with the fact that she herself used to be just like the ones protesting against her decision on becoming what she has instead of dying when she caught the illness .She also has been wronged so many times by a now ex husband who continually manages to show her how decrepitable he is and how far he is willing to go to get what he wants. There are constant problems arising and supernatural beings who want her dead just as bad as the humans do. There are so many great elements in this story series that makes up a good series. Inaddition the narrator is so wonderful to listen to and exactly what I was looking for when no began this series.

Must read or listen, I think listening is BEST!

I don't even know what to say but I just ever wanted them to end. What an incredile imagination Shannon has and great narration. I freaked when the 3rd one ended as I new there wouldn't be anymore.

Crazy! .....but great romance story too! I don't believe in any of this Supernatrual stuff but it kept me wanting more. Maybe I was biten by one of Remo's vampires! LOL GREAT job! Think I will try another series! Thanks! AND if you come up with more to the story please write a 4th, 5th, 6th series!

Not Shannon’s best

I’ve been struggling with this one. I dislike weak female characters who don’t mature or progress in the storyline. So I’m disappointed in book 3 of this series because the heroine keeps rehashing her perceived inadequacies and lack of self esteem. It just gets boring

Good story for a young girl.

I think my 10 year old granddaughter would like it. The narrator is very good and I would like to hear her do a grown up reading.
