They call me the cursed princess. Daughter of a tyrant king. Sister to the monster. For seven years, I've watched helplessly as my father sacrifices human tributes to the monster trapped within the dark maze.
When the queen begs me for help, I seize the chance to prove myself--to finally break the curse, rescue my brother, and transform him into his human form. But is there any humanity in him left to save? Or will he try to kill me, too?
Either way, I have to try. I must enter the Labyrinth myself, where darkness reigns and terror lurks...
To survive, I'll need the help of the tributes, especially brave, heroic Theseus. Determined to free his people from the terrible blood tithe, Theseus vows to slay the monster, no matter what.
But I won't let that happen.
And I can't let myself fall for Theseus's charms either. My quest may cost me everything, including my heart...
To save my brother, Theseus must die.
And I Darken meets Everneath in this haunting historical fantasy adventure based on Greek mythology. Perfect for fans of myths and legends, alternative histories, conflicted characters, and strong female heroines.
*Rated PG-13 for moderate, non-gory violence. No language and no steamy scenes.*
