Excerpt: Medusa, The Lost Daughter

From “The Departure’s Promise”

Excerpt: Medusa – The Lost Daughter

From “The Birth of the Gorgon”

For every monster, a hero is born
to end its tyranny, and to bring forth
its demise. Medusa saw hers born in
a flash of lightning in the sky, as she
was cast down from Athena’s eyes to the
scorching desert of Sarpedon
