The stunning conclusion of Tera Lynn Childs's Greek mythology–based Sweet Venom trilogy is perfect for teen fans of Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson series.

The girls cannot hesitate as they seek the location of the lost door between the realms, even as monsters and the gods of Olympus descend on San Francisco in battle-ready droves.

Greer must use her second sight to step up and prevent anything from stopping her sisters' mission, even though a god is playing with her mind. Grace wants to trust her adopted brother, Thane; but will his secret put the girls in even more danger? And Gretchen has trained her sisters to stop the monsters, but her role as a huntress comes with more responsibility than she ever imagined.What will the girls' immortal legacy be? Three teenage descendants of Medusa must unite to restore balance to the world in this action-packed series with plenty of romance.

Review: I really enjoyed this book! Though I must say I'm very sad to see this series end! Overall I found this to be a very satisfying ending to the series! It tied up the main story line nicely while also leaving a few small things to keep you wondering while not being angry about not knowing (you know what I'm talking about).

So we start with the girls having just entered the abyss in search of Euryale & Stheno on Olympus. They run into trouble the moment they jump into the abyss though. They have to fight a load of monsters which seemed to waiting for them the moment they get there. As they work their way further through the abyss the monsters seem to be right on their tail every step of the way. They cant figure out how the monsters seem to be so aware of them for quite awhile. Eventually they find out that Greer is the cause of it thanks to her touching the pendant in previous books. Gretchen and Greer (and company) finally do find and free Euryale and Stheno but not after numerous battles thanks to Greer being a beacon after having touched the pendant.

Grace on the other hand is sent on a mission shortly after going to the abyss with her sisters to go back to San Fran and search for their biological mother who is also in danger. She ends up going back with Nick but he ends up saving her from the bad guys by getting captured so she could get away. After questioning Nick about what side he was on for the past two books it was nice to see him finally sticking to the sisters side. It takes her a while, but with the help of her friend Milo they do end up finding her and after a short time Cassandra (biological mom) does agree to see Grace and listen to her warning.

After Grace, Gretchen and Greer found the people which they were sent to find they all meet back up while simultaneously trying to avoid those trying to kill them with Greer being a beacon to them. Greer had a vision about one of the sisters being in danger and goes to stop it and ends up hurt herself. Due to that the sisters finally find out the secret Thane was hiding and it was a pretty big secret. He was actually sent by one of the gods on a mission dealing with Grace. He then leaves thinking they turned against him after finding out. After this the girls set out to find him and save Nick and then gather their troops for their opening of the door. I actually found the opening kinda uneventful compared to everything else. Once they got there it just happened and then the monsters came out. I thought there was going to be more drama with the door actually opening. After the battle with a few random surprises in it the sisters are then told that Euryale and Stheno are leaving for Olympus and leaving the girls to control everything in that world. And also that they pass on their immortality to two of the sisters but that they leave it up the girls to decide who gets the immortality. We get a hint of what might happen based on Gretchen's reaction but we never to find out which sisters do get it. Overall though I thought the ending of the book was great!

5 Stars!
