If you like new twists on Greek myths, you'll love this book! It takes the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur and sets it in the context of historical fiction instead of fantasy. It finds ways of explaining how the story could have actually happened and then later be stretched into myth with the retelling. The book alternates between Ariadne's and Theseus's points of view. The story has a dark tone with the old, goddess-centered religion dying out, the tragic Minotaur, and the harsh realities of the sacrificial system.
