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.

Greek civilization was the cradle of Western culture. Among the many influences present up to this day in our daily lives are the stories of Greek mythology, with their gods known to us all: the fearsome Medusa, the wise Athena, the brave Perseus. Part of the universe of comic books, cartoons and action movies, these superheroes are as old as current. While in Divine Adventures the gods themselves tell of their adventures, this time it is Hermes, the god of travels, the ironical narrator. In the end, a brief glossary presents the lives of the main characters in the book.
