Sundays in Bed With… A Retelling and a Romantasy

Happy Sunday! I’m back today with “Sundays in Bed With….” a meme that dares to ask what book has been in your bed this morning. Come share what book you’ve spent time curled up reading in bed, or which book you wish you had time to read today!  This meme was originally hosted by Midnight Book Girl.

I’m actually reading two books today – Herc, a mythological retelling baout Hercules, and Songs of Retribution, the fourth and final book in The Siren’s Call series.

About Herc:

Author: Phoenicia Rogerson

Page Length: 384

Publication Date: Sept. 5, 2023

Synopsis: This should be the story of Hercules: his twelve labours, his endless adventures…everyone’s favourite hero, right?

Well, it’s not. This is the story of everyone else: Alcmene: Herc’s mother (She has knives everywhere)

Hylas: Herc’s first friend (They were more than friends)

Megara: Herc’s wife (She’ll tell you about their marriage)

Eurystheus: Oversaw Herc’s labours (Definitely did not hide in a jar)

His friends, his enemies, his wives, his children, his lovers, his rivals, his gods, his victims. It’s time to hear their stories.

Told with humour and heart, Herc gives voice to the silenced characters, in this feminist, queer (and sometimes shocking) retelling of classic Hercules myth.

About Songs of Retribution:

Author: Nicole Bailey

Series: The Siren’s Call #4

Page Length: 324

Publication Date: Sept. 16, 2023

SynopsisWhen treacherous waters lead to darker shadows, alliances must be forged.

On the heels of personal tragedy, tensions rise and the destiny of the fairy realms hang in the balance. As the fae courts weigh the risks of joining the Prasanna, friendships are lost and bonds are broken.

As battle lines are drawn, and coalitions are formed, Sai and his team find themselves bound to a destiny that could change their world forever.

In Songs of Retribution, love and sacrifice intertwine in this final, explosive installment of the Siren’s Call series.
