Barrett does a great job on this retelling of the Greek mytho of the Minotaur. It is interesting and has some new twists that are fun. It was a fast and easy read so perfect for the summer! Ariadne is a soon-to-be goddess. She is very isolated on Crete until a ship from Athens shows up led by Theseus. Theseus is not there to deliver a sacrifice however. He is there to kill the Minotaur. In this story, the Minotaur is a disfigured and very crazy man that is only saved by who his parents are (he also happens to be Ariadne's brother). I really liked Ariadne. She wants people to treat her the same as everyone else. She wants to travel. She knows however that she is going to be a Goddess and doesn't try to deny it. I enjoyed her love for her brother and family. The fact that Asterion (the Minotaur) was a man with a child's mind instead of some horrible, scary monster was refreshing. He is very sweet and totally harmless despite his strength. He was a very refreshing and interesting twist to the original myth. I really liked his character. I liked how the story switched between Ariadne's and Theseus' point of views. I always think it makes it a little more interesting and you don't really have a chance to get bored with one POV. I also loved how there was very little romance. It's a very nice change from other books. If you like Greek mythology and would like a new and interesting twist on the Minotaur, this is a book you will enjoy!
