This little novella is short and sweet. I like that it covers fantasy creatures and lore that are not commonly seen, lending it an originality and freshness among its peers in the paranormal romance genre. I enjoyed Drucilla's story very much, and the vibrant writing style made it easy to picture everything as it happened.
However, I do think this book could have stood a touch more editing. I see that it did have an editor, which surprises me due to the distractingly huge amount of commas and other punctuation issues. If you read this aloud and pause where all the commas indicate, you'll sound like William Shatner. Also, I think this story really could have stood to be longer. I wanted to see more of Drucilla and Az's romance. As it stood, they went straight from introduction to commitment, probably due to time constraints. The same with the ending: it seemed so intent on placing everything in a neat little box with a pretty bow, that it sacrificed some detail and emotion that I, for one, would have loved to see.
I rate The Medusa's Gargoyle 4 platypires, and would recommend this book for anyone who enjoys a fast and sweet romantic read.
