A Disney Twisted Tale Hercules

Here are all the details on this latest Disney YA novel served with a twist and a couple of prizes you can win courtesy of Disney Book Group.

Disney Twisted Tale

Go the Distance by By Jen Calonita

The newest book to join the Disney Twisted Tale series is Go the Distance by Jan Calonita.  

Go the Distance, the 11th book in the New York Times best-selling series asks, what if Meg had to become a Greek god? 

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? 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? Written by the author of Mirror, Mirror and Conceal, Don’t Feel, Jen Calonita’s latest twist is sure to delight and surprise.

Go the Distance Disney Twisted Tale Book Review

Full disclosure here, we LOVE Hercules. So, it was no surprise that we would be dying to get our hands on this book. Of course add in the fact that instead of Meg pretending like Love was no big deal, she’s now willing to fight for it. As in, go to the underworld and confront the woman who stole her ex! Frankly, if this doesn’t feel like a telenovela we don’t what does. With tons of drama, and sass our girl Meg is in it to win it…even if it does trigger every feeling she’s ever had about commitment. And how dare Zeus and Hera ask her to go become a god just to be with their son. See what we mean here? The DRAMA!!! Consider this fun Disney Twisted Tale as your juicy beach read for the summer. A definite must-add to the book collection.

    • Absolutely! Meg has always been fiesty, so I was interested to see how she would step into the “first wife of Hercules” role as she does in actual Greek mythology. In the true greek myths, Megara’s story gets a little tragic- so I was glad to see that didn’t show up in a YA novel for Disney fans. It was a good book for sure, but almost more about Meg really putting herself out there and confronting her demons more than anything. It definitely requires you to be “in the mood” for it though:)
