    Summary

    They say when the last of the great Earth-born architects built the Labyrinth, he built it so that none could escape. Ariadne knows this to be a lie. She travels its twists and turns with her brother every night and returns to her bedchambers every dawn.

    That is, she does until Theseus arrives with the third set of tributes.

    Summary

    Ariadne has a brother who is a secret, who is a monster. She does not know he is a monster yet: for that is the secret, and she does not even know he is her brother, for that comes later. She has heard the howls at night, of course, but it is a very long intuitive leap from mysterious noises to Minotaur, so she is to be forgiven for not figuring it out sooner.

    What she does know is that her mother cries sometimes, when she thinks Ariadne is asleep.

    Summary

    Before the labyrinth, before Minos knew of the Minotaur's parentage, before Daedalus was imprisoned and needed to flee--Ariadne was a young girl with a surplus of siblings, curiosity, and heart. She tries to help her older brother as he confronts the monster within while also confiding her own fears in Icarus, who is her big brother in every way but blood.
