Read full description of the books:



A prequel to the legend of Theseus and the minotaur telling how Theseus kidnaps and marries an Amazon, Antiope, only to have tragedy result (it was meant to be Part One of a trilogy, but none of the other books came out). Walton does Welsh mythology so well it's hard to believe how much I hated this one. Part of the problem is that she gets very info-dumpy to explain the ancient Greek and Amazonian culture. A bigger part is the sexism: even Walton's most patriarchal Welsh heroes are still respectful of women, whereas Theseus is sublimely convinced patriarchy is the way and won't hear any argument (this may reflect that Walton largely made up her version of Wales whereas here she seems to be sticking closer to historical Greece). Sure, the Amazons offer a different point of view, but they don't really oppose him so much as hope he'll see the light. And they're astonishingly forgiving on being kidnapped and condemned to the cramped life of Greek wives. Disappointing.
