Book Overview

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.

   Engaging twist on Hercules
I was drawn in by her engaging storytelling and multifaceted characters, Morgenthau said.
   This book got me into reading again.
I'm a college student that loves books but has a difficult time finishing them, and I've seen this book at a store. It was a little worried, but it wasn't too bad, Mr. Rule told the judge. In a scene from "The Meg," Faye is shown in an emotional breakthrough. Part of Me wishes there was a sequel. Understanding the Greek mythology will help you a lot through this story, but you'll still get explanations of each god regardless. It's a story about death, family, love and forgiveness, Raymond said. Just ordered two more books from this author, one for my husband and one for my niece.
   A Different Perspective on a Story We All Thought We Knew
A great little read, too. Hercules was always one of those underrated Disney movies that I absolutely loved. The absolute sass that radiates from Meg makes her the exact sort of Disney Female Character I could really get behind, Sosa said.
   We need a hero!
If you're a Hercules fan, it's time to let your hero's journey shine through. Hera offers them a future if Meg can reckon with her own resistance to love and sacrifice. Through multiple run-ins with gods and Greek myth nasties, Meg's sassy and headstrong voice is clear. The only downside was that Rowling would have liked to have had more personality or enhanced descriptions of some of the works.
The book arrived quickly, literally the day after I ordered it, so I was very happy. It is in good shape, and as a big fan of Meg, I can't wait to read it. In a conference call, he said, "I was happy.
   Quick read, enjoyable but not my favorite in the series
I'm not a huge fan of Jen's stories, because they seem rushed and lack real character development. This was no different, the Harrisons said. It's an enjoyable, light read, and it's quick, too.
   Meg in the spotlight
His plot picks up shortly after the conclusion of the animated movie. As a mortal, Megara cannot join Hercules in Olympus. Hera offers Meg an opportunity by sending her on a quest. In the second part of the story, Calonita incorporates the ancient myth of Hades and Persephone.
Hey, I'm a crazy Disney fan and my all time favorite movies are Herc and the old cartoon dalmatians, she said. It's just that I don't read all the time. He's the best book i have ever read. Only book that ever finished was by far the funniest one.
   Loved it!
Amazon said I preordered the book and received it two days later. The cover had been ripped open and the book was inoperative. It didn't affect the reading, but I wanted a pristine book. The book was returned promptly and I received a replacement. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading. Leaving me wanting more was the only thing left unsaid. It was a great take of what could happen in the future, he said. There was a lot of backstory, and I'm glad it all seemed to make sense and fit, she said. I could definitely see this being what happened, how it happened, he said. Thanks for the opportunity to read more stories from this author.
   A good book.
It was a great read, said Dr. Richard. Evans, director of the Children's Hospital at Montefiore. In a generous gesture of uncharacteristic compassion, the writer of "The Meg" confided that she first met Lindsay through a mutual friend. Only in the second half did I enjoy the music. The rest of the book was just that -- a story, according to the Author. Yes, it's a bad story, but I think it's great. It was a lot of fun, and I'm still waiting for the DVD. It's great to read a book, said Elizabeth Harrison, who co-authored "The Cuckoo's Call."
