A prophecy has been set in motion. Only love can change its course.

Medusa awakens in an unfamiliar cave, catches a glimpse of her reflection in a pool—and screams. Her thick hide, claws, snake-hair, even her ability to turn anyone into a garden statue with a look, all gone. The heart-stopping beauty that caused her and her sisters’ downfall is restored.

Confused, uncertain, vulnerable in her weak human body, she sets out across an unfamiliar countryside, where she meets a stranger from whom she can’t tear her once-deadly gaze.

The first time Olivier lays eyes on Medusa, awareness hits him low and hard. Her penetrating gaze ignites desires deep in his psyche, and an awareness that brought him across an ocean to await the answer to his great-grandfather’s cryptic message: Now is the time.

A secret in Olivier’s bloodline could help Medusa fulfill a prophecy to cause the downfall of the gods. But as they race to discover its final missing pieces, the truth becomes clear. They could be pawns in a hidden struggle for power. One wrong move, and their future could be lost like stones in the sea.

Claire lives in Los Angeles, so many of her stories are set there, too. But she is originally from Brookline, Massachusetts, so that location frequently pops up in her work, too. Claire spends her free time writing, doing animal rescue, and enjoying the sunshine. She specializes in writing romances of all kinds and never shies away from the “between the sheets” elements!

Look for the third and final book of the Redemption of the Gorgons series to be released in December, 2020!

Medusa woke up from a long sleep with a human form without her snakes. Her son, Chryasor had something to do with it. Meanwhile, Oliver's uncle wanted to know if he had any hidden power or not except his gargoyle as it had something to do with some prophecy. Medusa and Oliver met for the first time and you could feel the sexual tension from miles away. This prophecy thingy led them to a whole new adventure followed by betrayal, love, some actions, forgiveness blah blah blah!

I didn't enjoy this book tbh. I didn't really read the first two books in this series nor did I care to read. This book was making my head explode with all the stuff that's going on. So obviously I skimmed a lot. The only thing I liked about this book was the attraction and relationship between Medusa and Oliver. It was cute! And at the end, I felt bad for Medusa when the gods were arguing about who's gonna kill her. And I hated the way Athena was behaving and what she did to Medusa. Ugh! But then, felt like like the main reason we all read this book was nothing but just a stupid big fuss. I was disappointed. Argh! It was like after reading the whole fucking book the author said 'April fool' and was laughing at me for even reading the book. Gah!

Medusa is the Gorgon who ties it all together; the fulfillment of the prophecy that she will destroy the Greek pantheon (and perhaps, more?), some issues with her two sons, one being a horse (well, a winged horse), plus Olivier, a hot gargoyle shifter.

Disclaimer: I'm personally acquainted with the author.

Set mostly in Rome, there's some nice tourist-y things, a creepy encounter with the three Fates (beware the snipping of the threads!), and nice hot smexy things. One of the things I really like about this author's work is she writes great sex scenes.

We get a peek at Euryvale and Stheno in the conclusion, as well as the Greek and Roman pantheon, or most of them. Note: even Poseidon, who set all this mess in motion by raping Medusa when she was serving Athena, has HAD it with Athena's ish. She comes off as a real nasty goddess. Although this is the end of a trilogy, it would work as a stand-alone without reading the two previous novels.

Does the ending, for this book and the series, work? IMO, yes. I enjoyed it/them.

This one just wasn’t for me. I typically love mythology retellings, but the character development felt flat here, and the language was slightly too formal throughout for it to be engaging. I had to push to finish it. Such a bummer because I usually really enjoy Claire’s books!

Well here we have the end. this was an enjoyable series. Some parts didn't do much for me but it was a nice modern take on the Gorgons. I liked how each book was one of the sisters but the overall story was to get Medusa back. This one was Medusa's book. I liked the fact that she wasn't happy to be back to human. I also liked the fact that after everything she found her love. The battles were good and the other creatures were true to Greek Myths which was nice.
