Shadow Of The Minotaur: Legendeer 1 (The Legendeer)
About this deal
In some versions he was killed by the Athenians because of their jealousy of the victories he had won at the Panathenaic Games; in others he was killed at Marathon by the Cretan Bull, his mother's former taurine lover, because Aegeus, king of Athens, had commanded Androgeus to slay it. The common tradition holds that Minos waged a war of revenge for the death of his son, and won. The consequence of Athens losing the war was the regular sacrifice of several of their youths and maidens. Pausanias' account of the myth said that Minos had led a fleet against Athens and simply harassed the Athenians until they had agreed to send children as sacrifices.  In his account of the Minotaur's birth, Catullus refers to yet another version  in which Athens was "compelled by the cruel plague to pay penalties for the killing of Androgeon". To avert a plague caused by divine retribution for the Cretan prince's death, Aegeus had to send into the Labyrinth "young men at the same time as the best of unwed girls as a feast" for the Minotaur. Some accounts declare that Minos required seven Athenian youths and seven maidens, chosen by lots, to be sent every seventh year (or ninth); some versions say every year.  I totally loved Shadow of the Minotaur. There were several parts where I considered rating it five stars, and I simply loved this awesome original take on the Greek myths. It’s sort of hard to judge this book, it being the first in a trilogy, because obviously I don’t know what might be revealed and what might be tied up in the next two books. But, hey, I’m going to give it a go anyway!
