Harcourt 2011

In a strange twist of the odd myth of the Minotaur, a young girl named Adriadne is raised with the title "She-Who-Will-Be-Goddess" by the religion that her home island worships. Her mother, She-Who-Is-Godess hosts the soul of a goddess during a festival and picks a man who hosts the goddess's husband, Velcanos, and sacrifices him after three days to keep the island safe and plentiful. She is currently training to become She-Who-Is-Goddes when a strange twist of events occurs when a tribute group sent to the island from Athens holds young Thesus, and when everything seems to begin to spin out of control, Ariadne struggles to keep her mentalites in one piece. Oh! Did I mention the The Minotaur is Adriadne's brother? And he isn't what everyone say he is to be... Recommend to all adventurous and mythical lovers!! I would kill for a copy of this book!!!

This twist of the old tale, in my oppion, is far greater than the original. it was a fantastic read that I felt was brilliantly crafted.

        Dark of the Moon was an excellent book. I enjoyed reading the new takes on many Greek myths. The character Ariadne is a very interesting person who is destined to be the next Goddess. She gives up everything to help her brother who was born a monster. It was very well written and I liked it a lot.     

Rating: 4 Better than most
