Excelsior and the Black Death Chapter 3When Excelsior and his companions left the castle of Queen Medusa XXIII, they left with an unexpected compatriot: Stheno, the gorgon they had brought with them originally. The queen had effectively banished Stheno from her court and decreed that she would remain with Excelsior’s group as her punishment.

Excelsior, however, barely noticed. As his comrades said goodbye to Medusa’s servants, his mind buzzed with the cryptic warnings that Medusa had given him. What she had was believable, but could it really happen so soon?
