Paperback

Based on the Greek myth of Theseus and the minotaur, the tale of a hero who enters a labyrinth and kills a terrible monster with the help of a beautiful princess, Ariadne is written from the princess's point of view. Ariadne, like so many women in classic mythology, was given a minor role in the grand tale, but without her advice, Theseus would have failed.

Paperback

In this retelling of an ancient Greek myth the author weaves a tale of a young girl's struggle to outgrow the limitations placed upon her by her elders. Held up to others as the embodiment of all that is pure and innocent, she finds herself craving the darkness. But she learns that the shadows feed on her light and she must find her own path or lose herself forever.
