(From the publisher):
Here Saberhagen puts his own twist on the classic story of the Minotaur. Ariadne is the daughter of King Minos of Crete, and the Minotaur is her half brother - his body deformed when he attempted to assume the powers of a God, making him half-man, half-beast.
Theseus is a young man sentenced to be sacrificed to the gods, and Ariadne falls deeply in love with him. She conspires to save him from his grisly fate, but doesn't count on Dionysus stepping in to complicate matters. With mythical beasts and whimsical gods confronting them at every turn, Ariadne and Theseus must find their way through a maze of events that are as twisted as they are dangerous.
