Waiting on Wednesday (4)

 "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating

Dark of the Moon, by Tracy Barrett
Release Date: September 19th 2011

Ariadne is destined to become a goddess of the moon. She leads a lonely life, finding companionship only with her beloved, misshapen brother Asterion, who must be held captive below the palace for his own safety.Then a ship arrives bearing a tribute of slaves from Athens, and Ariadne meets Theseus, the son of the king of Athens. Ariadne finds herself drawn to the newcomer, and soon they form a friendship—one that could perhaps become something more.
But Theseus is doomed to die as an offering to the minotaur, that monster beneath the palace—unless he can kill the beast first. And that "monster" is Ariadne’s brother . . .

I love Greek Mythology and I love the Labyrith myth. Ariadne has always seem to me like a great unexplored character, so often passed over by the likes of Helen of Troy. I am therefore really intrigue by this book. I also wonder how the author will present Theseus, as in the original myth he ends up being quite the jackass.
