#BookReview of The Gorgon Bride by Galen Surlak-Ramsey

About the Book: THE GODS ARE FUNNY.

Except when you piss them off.

Then they suck.

They really, really suck.

(Really).


Alexander Weiss discovers this tidbit when he inadvertently insults Athena, Goddess of Wisdom, and she casts him away on a forgotten isle filled with statues.

Being marooned is bad enough, but the fact that the island is also the home of Euryale, elder sister to Medusa, makes the situation a touch worse. The only thing keeping Alex from being petrified is the fact that Euryale has taken a liking to the blundering mortal.

For now.

What follows next is a wild, adventurous tale filled with heroes, gods, monsters, love, and war that is nothing short of legendary.






About the Author: 
When Galen’s not obsessing over his latest text, he’s likely throwing himself out of an airplane, teaching others how to throw themselves out of an airplane, playing something online, taking pictures of the heavens with his telescope, or wrangling his four children somewhere in Southwest Florida.

He also manages to pay the bills as a chaplain for a local hospice.


Do I Recommend this book? Nope!

Notes and Opinions: This book was really weird. I never really understood why Alex was going through the things he did. I mean, it was said it was out of his "love" for Euryale but that love didn't seem like enough to me for him to be putting himself in danger. The love was literally love at first sight. No falling in love or previous friendship, just oh hey surprise we're in love! I was literally cringing. It hurt to read. I put it down and never picked it back up.
