Labyrinth of Lies
By Hannah Lokos
Release Date: December 2, 2013

Something foul is afoot in Ancient Greece. Athens is bruised from a previous war with Crete. Worse still, King Minos annually demands fourteen Athenian youths to be fed to the Cretan Minotaur, which is locked inside a maze. Theseus has grown up amidst this tangle of pain. When his own beloved, Zosemine, is taken to be fed to the Minotaur, Theseus finds himself at the heart of a web of conflicting motives, with the sense that even those closest to him cannot be trusted. Questions abound. Why is his father so ashamed? What is King Minos hiding? Is the Minotaur even real? And if not, what truly lies at the heart of the labyrinth? Little does Theseus know that all the various plots, motives, and secrets all weave around one terrible truth. Theseus must navigate the labyrinth and see past the masks, to slay the Minotaur.

Hannah Lokos, the author, contacted me requesting a book review. With a new baby (making that a total of 4 boys 7 and younger!!) I haven’t had as much reading time, and nowadays I don’t even read these request emails. Sorry. It makes me sad too.

Sooo with that being said these are the words in the blurb that caught my attention: Ancient Greece, labyrinth, 14 Athenian youths to be fed to the Cretan Minotaur, Minotaur!

This sounds like a great book by a young new author!

I know this is a day late, but what books were you “Waiting On” yesterday?
