The Mask Wearer is an original tale with elements from several other stories and myths. If you know the Greek myth about Medusa, you will understand why I can t believe Beorf thought Medusa had the most beautiful eyes in the world. It was surprising to learn that a snake-man, also called a naga, was Medusa s father. The fact that the mask made Amos a friend to birds and allowed him to speak to people far away was amazing. The author gave each of his characters individuality, like Junos, who gave the main character in all his stories his own name. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes gorgons, other fantastic creatures, or has at least basic knowledge of Greek myths.
