Lilith Bennette runs at midnight. She scales walls in the dark and climbs without a harness. She hopes that if she follows exactly in the steps of her strong air force pilot mother, she’ll somehow figure out the mystery of her mother’s death- and the reason why her necklace of Greek symbols has been missing ever since.
So when Lil is invited to Crete for a Future Leaders International conference, the same conference her mom attended years ago, she jumps at the chance to find some answers. But things in Melios Manor are not what they seem. Lil finds herself ensnared in an adventure of mythological proportions that leads her and her friends through the very labyrinth in which the real Minotaur was imprisoned. And they’re not in there alone. What secrets does the labyrinth hold, and will they help Lil find the truth about her mother?

Why We’re Waiting:
Lauren: Having the word Labyrinth already had me wondering if this would be mythology related, and I was excited to find out that it is! I love Greek mythology stories, so I try to find and add as many to my reading pile as I can. I’m glad to have another one to help my list grow! It doesn’t hurt either that a few people have said that fans of Percy Jackson would enjoy this one. Since Percy Jackson is one of my favorite series, I look forward to seeing if this one can be just as entertaining!
Kelly: I’m all about the scaling walls and climbing without a harness. Any main character who is BA enough to do things like that, I’m in! I have yet to really get into mythology books, but with my fantasy background, I have no doubt that I will love them. I think I just need to find the right one to strike my interest, and with this one not only being a fantasy/mythological adventure, but a mystery with a dark side as well, I must say that I’m intrigued! I like the sound of this! =)
Melissa: You had me at Lilith! I have a strange love for the name. I was excited when Lauren told me about this book. I absolutely love Greek mythology and was always reading D’Aulaires’ Book of Greek Myths growing up. I don’t think I’ll ever grow old of the stories, especially the ones that put a modern spin to them. However, I’ve been quite selective with Greek mythology retelling because Percy Jackson is my number one favorite series and the only other series I’ve read is The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter. How Erin will weave Greek mythology into the story besides the obvious has me intrigued.
