As the 11th book in the “Twisted Tale” series, Calonita’s latest novel riffs on classic Disney fairy tales by asking, “What if things had been different?” When Hercules completes his hero quest, he joins the gods on Mt. Olympus, except Zeus refuses to admit his son’s one true love, Megara — a mortal with pale skin and striking red hair … This retelling brings Meg’s story to the fore and, along with it, questions about what Meg as a formerly sidelined character really wants for her life … A satisfying retelling, recommended for fans of the “Percy Jackson” series and adventurous, modernized fairy tales.

Go the Distance
by Jen Calonita
$17.99 Hardcover

After Hercules proves he’s a true hero and regains his godship, all seems right in the world. That is, until Zeus tells Meg that she can’t be with Hercules because she’s, well, mortal. Luckily, Hera has a solution, offering Meg a chance to prove herself worthy of a spot on Mt. Olympus — as a god. All Meg has to do is complete a mysterious quest.

The mission? Oh, just to rescue her ex’s current wife from the Underworld. The ex-boyfriend she saved by selling her soul to Hades. The ex-boyfriend who immediately moved on to someone else while she was stuck in the Underworld. Can Meg put her past behind her and use her quick-wit to defeat monsters and gods alike, including the nefarious Hades? Will she finally figure out her place and contribution to the world? Or will her fear of commitment have her running away from an eternity of godhood with Herc?
