Venomous snakes for hair.
A glare that will cast people to stone.
Beheaded by the tragic Greek hero, Perseus.
It’s a safe assumption that we all know the basic facts about one of Greek Mythology’s most famous monsters, Medusa; the beautiful maiden cursed and turned into a Gorgon. Her tragic story and death at the hands of the hero, Perseus, has been told countless times for thousands of years.
But the thing with Greek Mythology is just that. They are myths. Narrated, fictional legends as old as time that have been passed down from generation to generation. Time has a way of changing the original tale. So, how can we be sure that the myths we think we know are the real story?
What if important aspects of these myths have been altered? What if the monster wasn’t really a monster at all? What if Medusa wasn’t actually Medusa? What if her name was Meduso? And what if she wasn’t a her, but a him? This is the tale of Meduso and his death at the hands of the hero Perseus’ sword. It is a tale of innocence, love, betrayal, and tragedy.
A wardrobe full of the most fashionable and one of a kind clothes, millions of adoring social media followers skyrocketing him to full-blown influencer status and a future stake in a major European construction company.
But beneath Bryan’s perfectly curated surface lies a shattered life crippled by depression and self-esteem issues. One just fragile enough that an outlandish comment from a digital stranger sends him spiraling out of control and into the intoxicating embrace of the New York City nightlife – drunk and ready for any trouble that comes his way.
As Bryan gives himself to the music and gets lost in the sweaty sea of the dance floor, he crosses paths with Vic, a tall and incredibly sexy stranger who finds himself on the receiving end of Bryan’s drunken confessions.
But what started as a loose-lipped tell all at the bar turns into something darker as the lives of the two men become more and more entangled.
When Vic’s obsessive nature comes dangerously close to the surface, he immerses himself into Bryan’s life, desperate to protect him from everything and anyone – by any means necessary. But how far is too far? How far will Vic go to keep the sins of his past from derailing his carefully-laid plans for the future?
Because you know what they say about the secrets we keep…the only way to truly get rid of them is to hit the kill switch.
