MINOTAUR by Phillip W. Simpson!
I adore Greek mythology!
When I heard that Month9Books was coming out with a novel that explored the minotaur and the labyrinth, well... I very much wanted to read it!!!
I love a good origins story, especially one rarely touched upon in retellings. To hear that there is a brand-new YA retelling of Asterion's story? Um....YES PLEASE!!!
I'm looking forward to sharing my thoughts on this book with you soon, and hope that you'll be picking up your own copy next week when MINOTAUR releases!
Check out this awesome summary and tell me you want to read this, too:
