The fearsome Medusa was initially a beautiful young woman in love with Poseidon. Enchanted by Athena, she becomes a monster. The fruit of her impossible love, however, will be Pegasus, the winged horse of light, protector of brave warriors like Perseus. The author invites her readers to a surprising encounter with Apollo, Athena, Hermes, Poseidon, Zeus and other gods. Each narrates their adventures, but, since the coexistence between them is not always peaceful, the versions for each story contradict each other.
