The King Must Die (Theseus, #1) Description

In myth, Theseus was the slayer of the child devouring Minotaur in Crete What the founder hero might have been in real life is another question, brilliantly explored in The King Must Die Drawing on modern scholarship and archaeological findings at Knossos, Mary Renault s Theseus is an utterly lifelike figure a king of immense charisma, whose boundless strivings flow from strength and weakness but also one steered by implacable prophecy.The story follows Theseus s adventures from Troizen to Eleusis, where the death in the book s title is to take place, and from Athens to Crete, where he learns to jump bulls and is named king of the victims Richly imbued with the spirit of its time, this is a page turner as well as a daring act of imagination..
