    Hard to put down Thus story was a little different from the usual paranormal/urban fantasy stories. I really enjoyed it and found it very difficult to put down. I really love the characters, especially Morgan as she steps into this unknown world. The storyline is captivating and intriguing. I'm definitely looking forward to reading more of this series.

    Fast light readA good fast read, with interesting characters being introduced. I would expect later books to delve into the characters in more detail.

    Pretty good read. I found it interesting. However, as a novella with 13 books in the series at $2.99 each, I probably won't continue with the series.

    Written in Stone, the first book in The Medusa Files series was an OK start to the series. I didn't feel that the characters were that well done, but hopefully over the series there will be more development of all the characters. The story was interesting enough that I wanted to know what was going to happen at the end.The only big thing that took away stars for this book was the fact that there was very little background given about anything in the book. Nothing was given away about Morgan's mother, what happened to the rest of the gorgons, anything about the other characters and just any more information about the world of the Kin. I understand that it was done to keep people interested in reading the next books, but there was so little background information about almost everything in the book that it took away from wanting to know more and read the next books. If this is the way the first book reads, then it follows that there won't be a lot of background information in any of the books to keep people coming back. I really don't like when authors offer too little background, there is a delicate balance for giving interesting information and then not giving enough to keep people intrigued. This author hasn't found that balance but hopefully will in the next couple of books. Overall 2.5 out of 3 stars, lack of background story, very short length and not much character development lost this one stars.

    U.S. Deputy Marshal Morgan Jacobs thinks she's going crazy. She was attacked in an alley and stabbed in the chest. But then it felt as if her eyes caught on fire. The mugger turned to stone, falling apart and crashing bit by anatomical bit to the pavement. He turned into a frigging statue and fell apart.So when she's released from the hospital, she locks herself in her apartment, doesn't talk to her friends, orders groceries online for delivery, and spends the next four months trying to figure out what happened. But one night when she sneaks downstairs for her mail, she's approached by a law enforcement-type hunk who asks for her help on a case, some impossible man-monster combination smashes through the building's doors, and Morgan is suddenly fighting for her life against a new reality that's determined to kill her.This is the first installment in a series of novellas, each complete in themselves but best read as a group. Normally I wouldn't start such a series (serious cheapskate here) but there's a reason I'm already hooked on this one. See, I'm becoming addicted to writers who've mastered the art of deep point of view (PoV) and I'm finding I miss it now when reading a book that's lacking this one feature. And yes, that lack does lessen my interest, even if the book in question is otherwise excellent (and cheap or free).Long story short, the reader will not have that problem with author C.I. Black. This is her second book, and in both her plotlines engage, there's always something going on (no sagging middles), the dialogue is crisp, and her characters and PoV are very deep. Her first book had multiple PoVs, giving the reader access to the thoughts and feelings of several characters; this novella has one, but it's so deep, readers experience the action as it happens. As that character is a strong but vulnerable woman whose reality just got turned upside down, the book fascinated me from the first paragraph.Best yet is the way Black makes paranormal seem real and possible, not an easy combination. Especially difficult is the ordinary heroine suddenly dropped into it; the reactions of a real person to an impossible event can be frustratingly difficult to capture. Black has done it twice now, and I can't wait to see what she writes next. Five strong stars.

    Very good considering the length. I thought there were still plenty of issues still unresolved at the end. I know there are 2 more in this series (around 100 pages each in length) that I hope tie up the lose ends. This would have been so much better (IMO) as a full length novel. The concept is a good one. Think similar to Grimm (TV show). Many supernaturals (Kin) living among us and we are none the wiser. Morgan is a bounty hunter who comes into her power the night she is attacked and defends herself. She finds out she is a Gorgon (like Medusa). Different, right?! Bought the next 2.

    **Warning: this text may contain spoilers** I think the book was great but it could have been longer and should have more details like her mother they barely explored the character and all we know is that she was a murderer and killed a lot of kin . I also want to know how everyone knows she's the only gorgon left and why the author doesn't explore that topic in the first book because if he did it would of explained a lot of things concerning Morgan

    From its explosive opening to its ending this book moves. I had less trouble 'suspending my disbelief' than the heroine did.. Hard to imagine how I'd feel if I discovered that I could turn things and people to stone.The author does a great job with this. And I was swept entirely into the book... I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review..

    Enjoyable! I really enjoyed reading the story so far. Hopefully I can read the rest sometime down the road . I have a problem with paying $2.99 for 90 pages of entertainment tho and that's just for one segment of many. Oh well....

    Lots of dangling pieces to continue in the series, but a great first novel for it. Paranormals all over the place and someone just learning that they are part of the otherness.Fast paced thriller, characters have plenty of room for continuing development.Going to read more.

    A great deal of potential but lacking in substance to fall in love with the characters.

    Written in Stone is a thoroughly enjoyable urban fantasy set in a different, believable world where 'there be monsters'.

    I absolutely love this Urban fantasy. I read all three novels in this series one right after the other. I am so hoping that C.I. Black continues this series.
