    MIDNIGHT MEDUSA is an exciting paranormal fantasy novella set i

    MIDNIGHT MEDUSA is an exciting paranormal fantasy novella set in a contemporary world full of ancient gods. I really appreciated the author's attention to world building, especially how she managed to combine details of a modern armed conflict with elements of the Greek pantheon. The intersection between old and new is really interesting. I didn't entirely agree with the hero's nostalgic assessment of war in the past somehow being less heinous and more romantic than war of today. I believe that war has always been horrible and civilians have always become victims. That said, I could appreciate how a character with Damon's background and abilities would feel the way he does.

    The heroine, Renata is a compelling character and I emphasized with all of the pain and horror she'd suffered as a child. She's a sympathetic figure and well portrayed as a victim of PTSD. I wanted to learn more about Renata and her special abilities, which were not thoroughly explored, probably due to the constraints of word count. Her character arc is definitely a positive and forward one. In contrast, I felt Damon was heavy handed and failed to respect the heroine's right to make her own decisions. The hero does come to see the error of his ways but I initially had a lot of trouble warming up to him.

    The charisma between the hero and heroine was good. I really wanted to see their bond developed to greater complexity. The emotional and psychological issues addressed were compelling and had the potential to carry the story much further than the novella format allowed. I'm sorry the story didn't go on for longer, exploring greater character and romantic development.

    MIDNIGHT MEDUSA is a great read for anyone looking for a paranormal novella with an original take on ancient Greek mythology.

    I won MIDNIGHT MEDUSA in a drawing and offered to review it.
