Action/Thriller




This exciting story brings the enigmatic, ancient world of Minoan Crete back to glorious life in a fast moving tale of love, ambition and betrayal.

Abandoned by their harsh countrymen to suffer a harrowing death at sea, Thasos and his family are rescued by the mysterious Keftiu islanders and find themselves welcomed into a bizarre, but sophisticated society apparently ruled by a young girl called the Moon Maiden.

The Keftiu are equally wary of their guests, whose rough warrior manners seem quite barbarous to the refined islanders.
As the sometimes shocking secrets of matriarchal Cnossos are slowly revealed to them can Thasos and his family continue to survive in this alien culture? Will Pasiphae the Moon Maiden and her people live to regret saving them?

The Moon Maiden also attempts to get inside the minds of the Minoans, for whom the Great Goddess was a cultural and personal reality. What made these people laugh? How did they use language? How did men and women in this matriarchal society relate to each other? What, if anything, can we learn from them

Excerpt
At this moment of stillness, a small, pale and scantily dressed girl skipped onto the stage. She stood and faced the bull, her lean diminutive body poised and taut with readiness.

“This is the Moon Maiden,” they heard Kikerus whisper again; the tone of his voice as much as the sudden intensity of the people on the stands making it clear that this was a very significant moment.

Even Manthys gasped, however, when a brief stare at the exposed horns, the child started a running dash right towards the bull’s head.
