What if he was able to warn Theseus about the Minotaur?
What if he also had knowledge of a conspiracy to bring down Athens itself?
A ship is travelling from Athens to Knossos, carrying Prince Theseus and a group of soldiers who are destined to enter the Labyrinth, to fight the brutal and ruthless Minotaur in a tournament to the death.
They encounter a young man adrift in the sea. Hauling him on board, he claims he is Icarus, son of Daedalus, inventor of the Labyrinth and that he has fled from Knossos in fear of his life, using a flying machine developed by him and his father.
Icarus goes on to warn them of a terrifying plot by Knossos to poison the Athenian water supply, to annihilate the city's population so Knossos can invade with little or no resistance.
Sceptical of both the man's identity and his story, the soldiers must ultimately decide if in fact they do believe him and, if so, how they can defeat the Minotaur and prevent the attack on their home city.
The ancient Greek myths of Daedalus & Icarus and the Labyrinth have been told for many centuries and this pulsating adventure novel, overflowing with incident, unearths the incredible story behind those myths. A captivating, exciting book led by strong characters and dramatic battle scenes, it covers themes of military ambition, genocide and intrigue that are as relevant today as they have always been, making it a powerful work of contemporary fiction that just so happens to be set in the past.
