Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.
A re-telling of the Theseus myth. It’s nice in that the two narratives of Ariadne and Theseus worked well–distinct from each other without being overly gimmicky. And it created a compelling alternate narrative of the myth, in the way that good re-tellings do. I wasn’t completely wild about Ariadne’s epilogue, but it was a minor problem in a nice story.
