Hercules and Iolaus receive an invitation to judge a small village's beauty contest, where a deadly sea serpent awaits them.

Publisher's summaryEdit

Hercules and his comrade-in-arms, Iolaus, heed the desperate plea of a small village. A deadly sea monster has been terrorizing the townsfolk, and only the great strength of Hercules can save them.
But the duo is in for a deadly shock, for as powerful as the sea serpent is, something far greater waits in its shadow. An old enemy of Hercules who wants him dead... once and for all!

Background InformationEdit

  • This book markes the first in-continuity appearance by Poseidon in a Xenaverse publication. He had previously only been seen in the opening credits to Xena: Warrior Princess, which is referenced in his initial appearance to Hercules as a towering watery figure, before reverting to a more human-like appearance.
  • This is the only Boulevard novel to feature Iolaus in a major role.
