As Princesses of Crete and daughters of the fearsome King Minos, Ariadne and her sister Phaedra grow up
hearing the terrible bellows of the Minotaur from the Labyrinth beneath the palace. The Minotaur – Minos’
greatest shame and Ariadne’s brother – demands blood every year.
When Theseus, Prince of Athens, arrives in Crete as a sacrifice to the beast, Ariadne falls in love with him.
But helping Theseus defeat the monster mean betraying her family, and Ariadne knows that in a world ruled by mercurial gods, drawing their attention can cost you everything.
Ariadne has heard too many tales of women being punished for the acts of men – she is determined toAmazon
set her own fate. But will her decision to help Theseus ensure her happy ending? Or will she find herself
sacrificed for her lover’s ambition?
