Publisher's Summary

The climactic final volume of The Venom Trilogy by USA Today bestselling author Shannon Mayer.

Humble baker-turned-supernatural Alena Budrene is lovely and lethal, and for the first time, she's owning it. Finally rid of her low-life ex-husband, she's free to date sexy vampire mob boss Remo, who respects her as both a Supe and a woman. She's on good terms with her difficult mother, and she's growing comfortable with her powers.

But just when it seems things are falling into place for Alena, Hera strikes again: the Aegrus virus rages across Seattle, threatening the life of everyone in its path - including Remo, infected by Hades. The only way to stop the carnage is to face Hera and her army in a no-prisoners battle to determine the fate of the human race - and Alena's future.

In a sweeping voyage from the Seattle bar scene to a netherworld populated by murderous gods and monsters, Alena confronts one adversary after another on a quest to set the world right for both humans and Supes and demonstrate her power - to the gods and to herself - once and for all.

Good story for a young girl.

I think my 10 year old granddaughter would like it. The narrator is very good and I would like to hear her do a grown up reading.

The best 1

Out of all three books, this one is definitely my favorite. No more surprises on who everyone is. Just clear understandings of what they all want. And of course Hercules is the only sensible hero, we can't tarnish his reputation lol.

Will really miss this Siren!

Any additional comments?

Hisses and Honey (The Venom Trilogy #3) by Shannon Mayer is the last book in the series and I hate to see it end! This has been a fun ride! In this book she finally gets her divorce but she also has to do so much more too! She also discovers major family surprises. You meet more creatures, gods, and see more battles. Will miss this!! The narration was perfect as with the other two audible books!

Book 3

Shannon Mayer's Hisses & Honey is the final book in the trilogy but in all likelihood not the last we'll hear from some of the characters. Alena's trials with the Pantheon's heroes finally comes to a conclusion but with a great personal price. Her love life takes several unexpected curves but a happy for now is reached. The story has plenty of action with battles, lies, deceit and tragedy to keep the readers interest.

Fun and Energetic

I love this Trilogy! I'm not a big fantasy reader, but this was fun, fast moving, and entertaining. I love the way Shannon Mayer incorporated the Greek pantheon with other mythological creatures! A+++!

Loved it!!

What a roller coaster!! So many questions answered and was shocked to discover what those answers were to some. Full of action! What a thriller. Had me wondering if everyone would be saved in time. Thoroughly enjoyed it!!

Superduper . Not really.

When someone tells you there is only one way to get to the underworld that's a clue. When they tell you it is a one way trip that's another clue. When they stand there holding one of the few weapons which can kill you that is the biggest clue of all. Why then was our heroine so surprised when she demanded to be sent and he stabbed her?
Aside from being superduper dim our superduper heroine is also superduper bossy. She tells all the gods and goddesses what to do. And because that's just how the author rolls they do.
The book is superduper unlikely. But despite the high body count it has a superduper happy ending.

a good series with same characters continuing

I was able to enjoy this series mainly because unlike other PNR SERIES this did not have a different character and their love interest constantly change every book or every other book . It was filled with all kinds of supernaturals and the main character was faced constantly with hate towards who she was after she changed called the 1st elementalist. However they were not the only ones filled with hatred towards here. She also dealt with the fact that she herself used to be just like the ones protesting against her decision on becoming what she has instead of dying when she caught the illness .She also has been wronged so many times by a now ex husband who continually manages to show her how decrepitable he is and how far he is willing to go to get what he wants. There are constant problems arising and supernatural beings who want her dead just as bad as the humans do. There are so many great elements in this story series that makes up a good series. Inaddition the narrator is so wonderful to listen to and exactly what I was looking for when no began this series.

Good end to the series

Really liked this as an ending the the series. Sad that it had to come to an end though. I love Greek mythology so enjoyed listening to stories with them in. I especially like Ernie! The narrator did a very good job and I would definitely listen to her again.

Sassy!!

I really enjoyed this series, it’s so different to other fantasy novels I have read/listened to previously, it’s so sassy and funny with really likeable characters and a story that very much held my interest till the very end. I also really loved the baking references to recipes along the way, cakes I have never heard of and I do love my cooking. The narrator was great at creating individual characters and personalities. Highly recommended by me 😊

Decadent and addictive

Hisses and honey is another fantastic story. Lena is one sassy, feisty, sexy and funny heroine and Remo is not that bad either, I can't get enough of this book and i hope that it's not the end of Lena's story. Saskia is amazing narrative make a lot of difference from just reading a story, she brings life into each character, she makes them believable and brings them to life.
