I was utterly charmed by this beautifully written little gem of a novella. Ancient Minoan daily life and religion was beautifully told, the characters and world felt very real to me -beguiling and fascinating! -- Leanne
Labyrinth by Alex Beecroft was a wonderful historical romance with a genderqueer flavor. It was a story well-told, with lovely character development, and some clever twists on the traditional mythology of ancient Crete and the story of the Minotaur. -- Sally for Bending the Bookshelf
I loved all these characters, and the society which was envisioned for them - based on what little we know from archaeology and Greek records, neither of which can really tell us how the Minoans thought or interacted with each other and with their foreign visitors cum would-be conquerors. My only disappointment is that the story wasn't longer -- Stevie Carroll
Elegant writing and a fantastic story -- Andrea
