Dark of the Moon- Tracey Barrett


Dark of the Moon was a brilliantly written book. It was a retelling of Theseus and the Minotaur. The characters had depth and I could actually relate to them and had genuine interest in their well being. It felt a little bit more like it should have been the story of the Minotaur’s sister, since that’s really who was high lighted, but the way the author merged her new ideas with old mythology was done very well.

This book had no love story, no insta love no love triangle. It was really very refreshing to see. The villains were not true evil villains, but normal people doing what people do.

You could tell the author did her research with Krete customs, clothing, mythology and history, which is what truly separates a book like this from one simply trying to re tell the story.

I gobbled up the pages quickly, interested in seeing what would happen next.

This was TOTALLY a five star book
