"I was a good girl."
"And the world set you on fire anyway."
Whatever she is, whatever she was, Medusa is now condemned to eternity in Hell. After centuries of failed attempts, her fellow Gorgons have finally arrived in the underworld to rescue their sister. But the chains holding Medusa can only be broken by the tormented prisoner herself. The myth, the monster, the woman must grapple with demons and fight to be the hero of her own story.
