Dark of the Moon by Tracy Barrett - OPTIONAL

Barrett, Tracy Dark of the Moon 310, pgs. 

Ariadne is training to become She-Who-Is-Goddess as her mother is. Across the ocean, Theseus is learning about his real heritage as a prince. The Planting Festival brings them together, causing consequences neither could have seen coming. 

While an interesting look at the myth of the Minotaur, it was disappointing how little of the story was about the Minotaur and how much instead told a story I wasn't expecting. Furthermore, the beginning where the background was explained seemed to drag on too long without answering the questions plaguing me until after it didn't matter. Then even the end was disappointingly dull, but the book did its job of telling a new side of the Minotaur myth.
