Singer to the Sea God Reviews
Singer to the Sea God is a fun take on the traditional Perseus myth. Perseus is here cast in a minor, rather villainous role, and as such his story takes a back seat to the tale of Pheidon, Uncle Pelops, and two other slaves, who escape the petrifaction of King Polydectes and his court after exposure to the Gorgon’s severed head.

The pacing is good and the book is short, so that really motivated me to finish it in one go. The plot wasn't really what I expected based on the title and the cover and the first chapter, which was a little disappointing because it's not as epic as it tries to build up to be. However, it's still a good story, and it wraps everything up neatly in a nice little bow at the end, though the end isn't really all that satisfying.
Back in the 90s, before YA fantasy became popular, this was one of the only YA Greek-myth fantasy books widely available. It's a fun read with a solid story. It may not be as sophisticated in its design and feel as Rick Riordan's Olympian series, but it's still worth a read!
I remember really enjoying this book when I was younger. It was the one that got me into reading. I really enjoyed the storyline, the setting, the characters...It is definitely on my to-read-again list.
