Beneath his castle, in the maze of narrow corridors known as the Labyrinth, King Minos keeps a strange and dangerous beast. This is the dreaded Minotaur who, every nine years, is fed a horrible meal of seven young men and seven young girls from Athens, sent down to their deaths in the Labyrinth. Once inside the Labyrinth, no one is ever able to find a way out. Theseus, prince of Athens, vows to kill the Minotaur, and he willingly sails to Crete with the other young Athenians doomed to sate the beast’s horrible hunger. Helped by the king’s daughter Ariadne, who has fallen in love with him, Theseus enters the Labyrinth armed with his sword and a ball of golden thread. “Unravel it as you go into the maze and you will be able to find your way out,” Ariadne tells the young man. Will Theseus kill the Minotaur? Will he be able to get out of the maze? In this thrilling adventure, young readers follow Theseus on his quest through the Labyrinth to see if they can spot where the Minotaur is lurking and follow the thread and help Theseus escape.
