Ariadne


'Here, Ariadne takes centre stage in a lyrical, insightful re-telling that explores her motivations and emotions and the grievances caused by grumpy, cold-hearted gods and warm-blooded men, who are equally vengeful and self-interested - Daily Mail 'The story is well known, of course, but Saint tells it skilfully and, like Miller and Haynes, gives a twist to familiar myth by offering the perspective of women characters' - The Sunday Times As Princesses of Crete and daughters of the fearsome King Minos, Ariadne and her sister Phaedra grow up hearing the hoofbeats and bellows of the Minotaur echo from the Labyrinth beneath the palace. The Minotaur - Minos's greatest shame and Ariadne's brother - demands blood every year. When Theseus, Prince of Athens, arrives in Crete as a sacrifice to the beast, Ariadne falls in love with him. But helping Theseus kill the monster means betraying her family and country, and Ariadne knows only too well that in a world ruled by mercurial gods - drawing their attention can cost you everything. In a world where women are nothing more than the pawns of powerful men, will Ariadne's decision to betray Crete for Theseus ensure her happy ending? Or will she find herself sacrificed for her lover's ambition? ARIADNE gives a voice to the forgotten women of one of the most famous Greek myths, and speaks to their strength in the face of angry, petulant Gods. Beautifully written and completely immersive, this is an exceptional debut novel.

Ariadna


Jenifer Saintovej sa podarilo očarujúco prerozprávať príbeh starogréckeho mýtu o Theseovi a Minotaurovi. Ariadna a jej sestra Phaedra sú dcéry hrôzostrašného kráľa Minosa. Počas svojho dospievania počúvajú ozvenu Minotaurových kopýt v Labyrinte pod palácom. Minotaurus si každoročne žiada obetu v podobe mladíka alebo devy z Atén. Ariadna je nádherne vyrozprávaný príbeh ženy, ktorá trpí osudom väčšiny žien, čo prežívajú útrapy s egoistickými mužmi. Ariadna je strhujúci príbeh o láske a strate.
