Combining history, myth and fantasy, Sara Douglass introduces
Five generations have passed since Adriadne destroyed the labyrinths, double-crossed the Minotaur and moved to a cold island country in the north. Her daughter-heirs have been trained as Mistresses of the Labyrinth, waiting for the Kingman-heir to find them. Adriadne's legacy is to recreate the Troy Labyrinth in a new worldbut the Minotaur isn't through with the Troy Game.
Ms. Douglass recreates the Aegean world and a pre-Celtic England in a sweeping epic that grabs your attention at the first page. The Game is to be played out over millennia, and brief viewpoint jumps lead readers to other historical venues in time. Now if only the wimpy heroine would get a life. (Jan., 560 pp., $27.95)
