The story revolves around Ariadne who is the daughter of king Minos of Crete. The book basically is about Ariadne's life as she goes through many phases, both good and bad. I personally think that the story is well executed and nicely structured with much happening to keep you interested. This is my first time ever when i have read a book about Greek mythology and i thoroughly enjoyed it. I would definitely recommend it to my friends.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it was a fresh perspective on the classic story of Ariadne and Dionysus with an unexpected twist on the troubles of fame. I identified with the characters right from the start and enjoyed seeing how author had interpreted this myth. I would definitely recommend this book to people who enjoy the classic Greek myths, as well as readers who just want a good story which they can get lost in for a while.

An enjoyable meld of Greek myth and modern story. A twist on classical Greek myths, with newspapers distorting and manipulating, creating chaos in lives as they do in our world. Everyone knows of papers that make myths of fashionable celebrities, and this story reflects that. I would recommend the hyperlinks for anyone interested in more details on the Greek myths contained in the story.

This is a contemporary take on the wonderful stories of the Greek heroes. I think it works well although I needed help with the triangle on the cover as I didn't know 'ION' has the Greek letter Delta in front. Because I am 'old' and remember the 1950's and 60's singer Dion (pronounced dee-on) I always had that pronunciation in my mind. I thought Manolos was another Greek I had forgotten -then realised it was modern day footwear!
This was a fast paced novel. I imagained the writer sitting opposite me-telling it all. Apt when Seamus Heaney's Beowulf talked of at the moment-the story could be spoken aloud. It was also like reading a letter. The joy of reading one of those rather than emails and texts today. I loved the name of the tavern in the story-Styx and Stones, but wondered if a basic knowledge of Greek myths would be an advantage. Sarah does tell us different versions of the old stories. I loved the idea that fans at gigs get complimentary drinks-but not Carling at the Academy please! I hope there will be more like this, I know I'm not a Young Adult but am glad it was recommended to me. Hope to buy it in paperback one day and see the film.
