"The Story Continues. . . Summer and Darce are summoned by the order of Zeus himself to travel to the home of the Gods: Mount Olympus, where they're to face even more ancient Gods and Goddesses. Summer braces to confront her mother again, illuminating secrets about the truth of her tragic pasts, while also persuading Zeus to allow her to stay with the God of the Underworld, her true love - Darce. Aboard Poseidon's luxury yacht, Summer meets her mythological family, while also uncovering what exactly happened to her past lives - and the true roles her mother and Darce played. When Darce and Summer suddenly find themselves separated, Summer must find her inner power and unite them together, before her mortal time runs out."

Chantal's favorite Halloween memories:
"In all honesty, I don't really have a favorite story about Halloween. I have more memories of being absolutely terrified of trick-or-treating because of all the scary costumes that I'd come across as a child. Back in the day, some of my neighbors would go all out and dress up. In particular, one did so every year as a creepy, faceless woman who would sit in a rocking chair. I always cried going up to her porch. One year, a neighbor put a microphone into a pumpkin and talked to us kids - and I think we were entirely read to just sit next to this talking pumpkin for hours.
But I think the one thing that I always looked forward to doing was dressing up as a Princess. I always, always wanted to be some sort of fantastic heroine that I loved so much. I dressed up as Belle several times (both as a child and as an adult.) But I particularly remember getting a Thumbelina costume when I was little and just feeling so magical. There was something about that evening that you could be whoever you wanted to be, and in my small, imaginative mind, I could be a princess who was brave and beautiful. I remember some really fun costumes from my childhood being—Belle, a Musketeer, a cardboard TV that my dad made, an M&M, Christine Daae—just to name a few. And I think that desire to "be someone else" stuck with me into my adulthood, but sort of transformed itself from "dressing up" as someone else to "writing" as someone else."
