"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? 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?" --… (més)

This was a really fun look at the Disney Hercules story with a twist. Picking up sort of where the animated movie leaves off, Hercules and Meg are ready to begin their life together. But what if Hercules's father, Zeus, refuses them permission to do so? Hercules's mother Hera steps in with a plan that will unite the two lovebirds for eternity. But first Meg must go on a quest, a seemingly impossible one.

The book was a great escape from the woes of the world, and it went by super fast. Recommended for Disney lovers who are looking for more of their favorite Hercules characters. ( )

Meg fell for man after trying to betray him then he became a god. What’s a girl to do with that except become a god herself. It’s not that simple but it is so fun.
Meg is strong, honest, independent and nearly fearless in reaching her goals. I loved her strength and her ability to question herself.
This is not the classic hero movie where the guy sweeps in to save the girl. This girl saves the boy, and can stand on her on in a fight. When presented with a quest that would end with her being a god, she grabs it. She doesn’t do it because she can’t live without the wonder boy but because she can do it for herself. Woot Woot ! Girl power activated !
Seriously fun read, excellent characters. ( )

People Do Crazy Things When They’re in Love

Finally, after years of waiting, we get a book about Megara! Jen Calonita picks up right where Disney Hercules ends, with Meg’s perspective. Except in this twisted tale, Zeus will not let Hercules reject his gift and leave Olympus behind. Hera’s solution is sending Meg on a dangerous quest to become a god. She must face her past heartbreaks, to prove she is worthy of becoming immortal and live on Mount Olympus. But love is complicated, and so is healing from past relationships.

At first Jen Calonita relies a lot on quips and dialog from the movie Hercules, there are few times it becomes a bit repetitive. It is nice when Meg adds her unique perspective to past events, and her feeling for Hercules are adorable. Though, I am not sure I enjoyed the fact that Meg’s humor is copied from her mother and is not a unique personality trait. I can’t say that Meg had the same sarcastic pizazz as the movie. Perhaps that is okay. Meg must deal with many emotional themes, and it affects her deeply enough that being vulnerable means taking down some of those walls. Pegasus and Phil where a great addition, that lightened the mood of the story considerably. They both help her overcome obstacles as she learns to trust her friends throughout her journey.

What disappointed me was the epilogue. I am usually up to redefining words that have negative connotations for women, but defining Meg’s entire character with the word vulnerable just does not sit right. Go the Distance is about Meg confronting the past, facing challenges, and finding out her true strength of character. With plenty of wit, soul searching, and surprises, this is a must read for Megara fans! ( )
