A shaky truce. A pregnant Medusa. And a dedicated doctor who keeps legends alive.
Even during a truce, I have my hands full as a MASH surgeon to an army of warring gods—especially when Medusa herself turns up pregnant. I frankly have no idea what to expect when a Gorgon’s expecting, but I have an even bigger problem when my presumed-dead former-fiancé sneaks into my tent with enough emotional baggage to fill a tank.
He’s been fighting for the other side, which technically makes him my enemy, and now he needs me and the power I’ve kept secret for so long: I can see the dead. It’s a blessing and a curse. Literally. Because the gods will smite me in a second if they suspect.
But the other side is developing a terrible new weapon, and the only person who can stop the carnage was just murdered in a covert lab behind enemy lines. So I have no choice but to pull on my combat boots and go AWOL with my ex and a moody berserker to confront a ghost with a terrible secret.
Too bad uncovering the truth could make me enemy #1…
Warning: This book contains a Star Wars-obsessed werewolf, an adorable hellhound, demigods in peril, action, romance, and friends who put each other first—in a MASH camp where everybody knows your business.
*The core of this book was originally called Immortally Embraced, published by St. Martin’s Press in 2013. The author has rewritten it into the way she always envisioned the story to be, which means it is now a romantic comedy instead of an angsty book. Oh, and there are a lot more pet swamp lizards, too.

**Cait Sidhe’s Review of Translyvania twist**
I know jumping into a series without reading the previous books is a bit of a no-no in the minds of a lot of bloggers and authors alike but I enjoy the challenge of diving in midstory. I think it says more about an author’s ability to carry the story and get the reader involved if you are still able to follow the plot without having the backstory. Angie Fox was able to do just that in book #2 of Monster M*A*S*H. While the reading of the first book would obviously have given me more detail, it’s always fun going in blind and I didn’t feel that I missed much by not reading #1.
While I thought the premise of including mythology would be interesting, the world-building was much more than I imagined it would be and I don’t just mean because it happens to have two suns and hell vents. This is a vibrant world in between the warring lines of the Old Gods and the New with a number of fun, quirky characters. Petra isn’t the most unique persona of the bunch by any means. Her tent mates are a vampire and a vegetarian werewolf. Her ex is a shapeshifting dragon. Of course, you already know there’s Medusa who, yes, can still turn people to stone with a look. There’s more. A lot more.
The romance here was a bit interesting. Her ex has been gone for 10 years and she’s finally gotten close to someone else, only to have that someone else walk away after he’s called back into the action. He’s decided that she should be free to be happy, whatever that looks like. She’s heartbroken naturally, but even more, shaken when the ex, Marc shows back up especially since he let everyone think he’s been dead for a decade. Not only that but he needs a specific set of skills that she has, and he has to take her beyond enemy lines to use them. I wasn’t so sure that I liked him but he definitely grew on me as the book went on.
Romance isn’t all that Translyvania Twist has to offer. It truly has a bit of everything. A bit of mystery, humor, and some good snark kept me turning pages. It’s clever, witty, and entertaining while still managing a good bit of darkness and occasional broodiness.
I give Transylvania Twist 3.5 out of 5 propellers
