In a world of gods and monsters, nothing is as it seems.

When a deadly serpent's teeth are sown in the ground, warriors spring from the bloody soil. Only a great man can tame them and fulfil his destiny. Far away, Medusa, snakes writhing in her hair, meets her nemesis; the princess Andromeda is chained to a rock; people are transformed into owls, frogs, even mountains; a boy falls tragically in love with his own reflection.

Enter a universe where love is cruel, men are destroyed by the gods and treachery is paid for in blood ...

About Ovid

Publius Ovidus Naso was born in 43 BC in central Italy. He was sent to Rome where he realised that his talent lay with poetry rather than with politics. His first published work was 'Amores', a collection of short love poems. However he was expelled in AD 8 by Emperor Augustus for an unknown reason. He went to Tomis on the Black Sea where he died in AD 17.
