Summary

Slaying the Minotaur was only the beginning. Theseus's legendary exploits continue in this magnificent novel of mythological adventure in classical Greece. Esteemed author Mary Renault picks up where her classic The King Must Die left off, relating the tale of Theseus's triumphant return from Crete to become King of Athens. Plunge into the thrilling world of the continuing adventures of this mythic ruler, from his famous capture of the Amazon Hippolyta to the bitter twist of fate that loosened the bull from the sea. Renault's writing is rich with color and drama, vividly capturing the heroism and uniquely Greek sense of destiny that characterize this classic tale of a royal ruler who looms larger than life.

A wonderful book ruined

I have read this book many times it is one of my favourite books. I was so very disappointed to find that the abridgement has cut the very soul from story and sadly Michael York's beautiful voice came across as distant and uncomfortable.

WARNING! The abridgment ruins everything!

I loved this book on paper, but could not even listen all the way to the end of the recording. The abridgment eliminated all of the nuance, personality and motivations of the brilliantly written characters. The story no longer engages, no longer even makes sense. If only someone would record an unabridged edition!
