Soon after returning to Athenos to celebrate his father’s recent marriage, Theseus learns his homeland must submit to the cruel demands of an unexpected enemy.

Goaded by his father’s new wife, Theseus volunteers to defend his land by entering a battle to the death in the pitch black depths of an ancient maze. A battle against a monster of the gods’ creation. A battle no other has survived.

Aided by the goddess Aphrodite, Theseus stands a stronger chance of survival than his predecessors, but as ever, the gods’ kindness harbors ulterior motives. His bravery, his sacrifice, his struggle to push his world back from the brink of war only serves to further Aphrodite’s goals. Goals that do not include a peaceful future for mortals or for the gods who stand in her way
