Welcome to Books, Books, and More Books.  I am pleased to share my review of this book with you.  Thank you for visiting and please come again.

Title: Medusa’s Desire
Author: E.B. Black
Genre: Fantasy Romance


Blurb : 

It all started the day her god raped her.
She transformed into an abomination through his touch. Her skin grew scales. Her eyes turned red. She screamed for help, but all who saw her became stone.
Medusa thought she would be alone forever, until the day a man came to kill her and fell in love instead. Now Perseus is running from those who hired him as he continues to love a girl who could kill him with a glance.

About the Author:


E.B. Black lives in southern California with her family and two rottweilers. She daydreams about dressing up like a necromancer for Halloween and about new fantasy worlds she can throw her characters into.



I have always been fascinated by Medusa and her sisters.  Her punishment always seemed extreme, even for petty, childish gods.  I love the view of this author and how in this book Medusa retains her humanity, even when viewed as a monster.  The portrayal of Medusa as a good person who was just terribly unlucky is a sad view of the myth; however in this story she isn’t to be pitied.  She takes everything that life hands her and makes the best of it, something I continually wish I had the ability to do.

I love the strong character development and the sort of archetypical actions of some of the characters.  This was an excellent fresh look at an ancient legend.

I give this story 4 out of 5 clouds.
