A mesmerising and Sunday Times bestselling feminist retelling of the ancient Greek myth of Theseus and the Minotaur.
As Princesses of Crete and daughters of King Minos, Ariadne and Phaedra grow up hearing the terrible bellows of the Minotaur from the Labyrinth. 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 for him. But helping Theseus defeat the monster means 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 to set her own fate. But will she find herself sacrificed for her lover's ambition?
