A free copy of this book was received from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I wasn't really sure what to expect going into Medusa. The cover was what initially drew me to the book, and the blurb sounded fantastic, but Tony Talbot was a new author to me, so I was a bit nervous at the same time. My fears quickly dissipated. After reading only a few lines, I knew this book would be good!

The plot:

The plot is really great. It's ori

It was the cover of this book that initially drew me in. The blurb is short and enticing but it doesn't reveal much. There was really no way to know what to expect from Medusa without reading it.

I don't want to give away too much of the storyline, because I think that mysterious allure really works in its favour. But I will say it follows the story of Lissa Two, a young woman struggling to keep her sister safe in a post-apocalyptic world fraught with danger.

Lissa is brave, resourceful and willi

I just finished Tony Talbot’s great new book Medusa. This is the second book of Tony’s I’ve read and I was not disappointed.

We meet Lissa Two – captain of a strange ship with some interesting technical skills – in an apparently post-apocalyptic world of water. Giant ‘seasteads’ form the main areas of civilisation and Lissa uses her ship – Connie – and the particular powers she has, to salvage items for sale in the underground souks in her own seastead home. A random meeting with a man thrown fro

I got this book through the making connections group by the author For a review.

First reaction after reading a few pages left me a bit confused but as the story progressed i got what was happening and the wording used, The world described by the author is quite interesting since i imagine that is how people would react if they slowly lost knowledge and their history.

Power corrupts most people and makes them do things that they might regret later on, but some people differ from the general term "

It has been a while since I read anything and I am trying to get back into books. I read this book and really enjoyed it. It kept me interested at the beginning and to me had a really surprise ending. It was full of surprises along the way and I kept looking for what was coming next.
