ENVY'S CURSE by A.R. Von is the story of Medusa and Poseidon. They had long held a secret love for one another that could eventually become their undoing. Given the title and the characters, I think that was a given. But how they got there is the story.
As someone who loves Greek mythology, this was a fun read. The characters are well presented, the building of the attraction between Medusa and Poseidon as they attempt to hide it, but can't, as they are continually drawn to each other. The story switches back and forth between the two main characters' point of view, giving us direct access to their internal thought processes in all their raw anguish. The need (especially Poseidon's) is almost tangible, as the readers are made to feel exactly how he feels about the beautiful Medusa. To quote, "We are no longer children, not even close. Awkward moments, immature avoidance and small conversation to mask the uncomfortable silence are not an option any longer. I'm here to seduce a woman…my woman. The only woman I've ever truly wanted to be all mine." I enjoyed Medusa's naivety juxtapositioned against her obvious charms, and this brought a smile to my face as I read.
Like all good stories, the attraction they feel for each other is strong, but the building is gradual until their actual culmination in all its sensual and sexy glory.
Alas, again, like all good stories, something terrible steps in to come between the two. Yes, it is ENVY'S CURSE and if you're familiar with the myth, I'm sure you can guess what happens. But that's not where the story ends. As readers, we're still witness to their anguish and love, as they do whatever it takes to be together. Oh, oh, I loved the scene about the cinnamon chocolate cookies. Brilliant way to depict a god as slightly more human and well, who doesn't love cookies?
