Except the underworld is nearly impossible to escape.
Jodi's one chance may rest in raising the human soul she killed when she drank Medusa's blood.
But splitting her human soul from her Ophi soul means living a double life: One as an Ophi experiencing unspeakable torture and the other as the human she could have been if she never came into her powers. With her two worlds colliding, Jodi will have to make the toughest decision she's faced yet.

Cerberus, Centaurs, and Gorgons, Oh My!
It’s probably no surprise that I have a soft spot for Gorgons. Medusa’s curse was brought on by the gods and without good reason, if you ask me. She was the victim of the gods acting power-crazed and vengeful. So, even though she sports a head full of snakes—the one animal I truly despise—I like Medusa. And that’s why you see a very different Medusa in the Touch of Death series.
But Gorgons aren’t the only mythical creatures I adore. Who doesn’t love a three-headed dog? Okay, so he guards the gates of the Underworld. I’m a dog lover, and I can’t help but think three heads are better than one. Hades has a good pet in my opinion, and this particular pet appears in the final book of my series.
I’m going to have to call it a three-way tie, though, because I’ve always loved Centaurs. Maybe it’s because I’m a Sagittarius and the Archer himself is a Centaur. Maybe it’s because Centaurs appear in a lot of great books about Greek mythology. Chiron is certainly one of my favorite characters in the Percy Jackson series, and the Centaurs save Harry Potter on more than one occasion. I just see them as the ultimate good guys.
So, Cerberus, Centaurs, and Gorgons are the three mythical creatures that get top billing in my world.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, Kelly! So great to have you here as always! Can't wait for The Monster Within!Kelly Hashway grew up reading R.L. Stein’s Fear Street novels and writing stories of her own, so it was no surprise to her family when she majored in English and later obtained a masters degree in English Secondary Education from East Stroudsburg University.

She is now the author of three young adult series, one middle grade series, and several picture books. She also writes contemporary romance under the pen name Ashelyn Drake. When she isn’t writing, Hashway works as a freelance editor for small presses as well as for her own list of clients. In her spare time, she enjoys running, traveling, and volunteering with the PTO.
