Synopsis from publisher for hard cover edition:
THE SANDMAN PRESENTS: THE FURIES is a beautifully painted story about a mother’s loss and her ultimate redemption. Years ago, Lyta Hall called upon the mythical Furies to exact revenge against the Lord of Dreams for the murder of her son. But when the three spirits of familial vengeance used the grieving mother for their own ends, Lyta fell into a dark world of depression and despair. Now as Cronus, the ancient Titan who killed his own father, returns with a plot of revenge against the Furies, he looks to Lyta as a powerful ally and pawn. However, fully understanding the true cost and consequence of vengeance, the tragic heroine makes a fateful decision that leads to her own salvation.
This publication is an original graphic novel written by Mike Carey and illustrated by John Bolton.
