I don't normally go for poetry, but man! This novel in verse packs a punch. I love Greek mythology, so it was a delight to start on the familiar ground of the Minotaur, but the author took it so much further than that. Having Poseidon as a narrator created a fascinating contrast between the deeply felt emotions of Asterion (the Minotaur) and his family, and the irreverent, uncaring attitude of the gods. The different poetic styles of each character were a great deal of fun, and the author's afterword describing them is well worth the read. I certainly recommend this book for fans of mythology or fans of poetry! It's a quick read, and well worth your time.
