Even the ancient story of her creation wasn’t as informative as this book. Ms. Black has taken the origin of this popular character and gave it a lot of meat, with a lot of bite.
You get to know Medy (Medusa), her life as a human… the suffering she endured because of the actions of a fickle god. I finally got to read a version on why her sisters were cursed and I really appreciated the authors clever way of incorporating the sea monster who threatened to destroy the princess, Andromeda.
Just like the Greeks did in ancient times, Ms. Black has come up with a very believable story to explain the unexplainable.
The love story between Medusa and Perseus felt so real to me, that I even cried when Medusa made a life changing decision close the end.
I could keep talking about this all day, I loved it so much, but I don’t want to give out spoilers. One thing, this would make a great movie. The idea that Medusa, the most hated creature in the universe, can be likable and pitied is an awesome feat I feel this author has accomplished.
There is no happy ending. In fact Medusa becomes the very thing she tried so hard to avoid, in grief and torment she unleashes her rage upon the innocent, and the one person who claimed to have loved her abandoned her and treated her like his dirty little secret. Simply put tragic ending, and depressing.
