About this title

Synopsis:

Medusa is perhaps one of the most intriguing characters in all of Mythology. However, she is also the most mysterious. Everyone is aware of her existence, the serpent-headed monster of old, whose very gaze turns all to stone. But, how did she come to that? How did a being of such power meet her end, decapitated by a mortal? Most importantly, what truly makes one a monster? Born to ancient sea gods and, the only mortal of her kind, Medusa was taken from her home at birth. Raised on earth, by a consort of the Gods, she was a product of both worlds yet, belonged to neither. Her beauty became legend in her village and, once her cousins noticed the beautiful young woman she'd become, they invited her to Mount Olympus.

Faced with the prospect of attending Panathenia, the birthday celebration of the goddess she worships and admires, Medusa could hardly refuse. At sixteen, she is thrust into the world of Olympus, where decadence abounds, and every desire is fulfilled. Surrounded by those with unlimited power, she felt that anything was possible.

Because of her beauty and spirit, she is noticed by more than one God, quickly becomes a favorite and, inevitably, a prize to be won. In the home of the Gods, Medusa finds acceptance, friendships, and love. She also finds herself in the crossfire of rivalries dating back centuries.

Fall into a story of love, jealousy and betrayal. Immerse yourself into the world of the Immortals. Follow the journey of one woman's life, where every choice can be the difference between life and death. Experience the anger of the Gods, from which she never survives... or does she?

About the Author:

R.C. Berry is a freelance writer born and raised in Maryland. From the beginning, she enjoyed reading and, was very imaginative. English quickly became her favorite subject, and she began reading stories at higher levels. Her joy was taking what she read in school, and retelling it to members of her family. Growing up, she found writing to be a fonder passion than reading. She started writing short stories and poetry. After much insistence from her friends, She began working on her first novel. With its completion, she began to think seriously about publishing. Unable to bear the thought of, not only the rejection of her work, but the possibility of having it chopped up, she felt her only real option was to self publish. With her friend, she started Touche Publishing, in the hopes of giving authors the same freedom of expression, along with the opportunity to see their dreams become a reality.
