Five years have passed since the legendary Perseus defeated the evil Gorgon Medusa, killed the Kraken and assumed the crown of Argos. Things seemed idyllic throughout the kingdom and the news of an heir put the citizens in a celebratory mood. Yet lurking in the shadows is the one being in Argos simmering with hate and discontent. Calibus, once thought dead, was let out of the Underworld by Hades and looks to take his revenge on the Pretender and his family. Perseus stole his bride, stole his position, stole Zeus’ favor, stole his life and now Calibus looks to take it all back. With the news that a baby boy was born to Perseus and Andromeda, he is chilling that dish of revenge.

I grew up on Golden Age Radio, and while I love to read, I typically consume more books via audio thanks to a job that lets me listen while I work. As an aspiring writer, I try to read a great deal of non-fiction in addition to a variety of fictional genres. I especially love history, historical fiction, science fiction, fantasy, and old-style gothic horror.
I've grown to respect the Colonial Radio Players, but this isn't the best effort in their lineup. The story is the sequel to Clash of the Titans, and it's pretty clear it's based more from the original 1981 film than the remake. That was a selling point that made me grab it because I love that film. It's a guilty pleasure. Like the original movie, this is a mythological mis-mash. Unlike the movie, this is lacking that something extra that gives it punch. It feels... off. That's the best way I can describe it. Compared to other performances I've heard from this group, this feels more like a high school stage play. I hate saying that, but there it is. You can almost hear the actors begging for better lines and trying to keep a straight face while they deliver their lines. I know they're better than this. Decent idea on the whole, but it could have been a lot better. Pass this over and pick up Captain Blood instead.
