I got as far as page 206 before throwing it against the wall. There was not a single sympathetic character, and the endless cycle of sex, rape, betrayal, clunky convenient details dropped into the almost stream-of-consciousness plot, and non-sensenical scene changes with the reborn Minotaur had me quickly not caring what happened next. I'm not a big fan of fantasy anyway, but I'd hoped that the ancient setting would be a saving grace in the way that David Gemmell's trilogy failed. This one was even worse - the plot was completely incoherent, although the writing style & shallow characters were about on par with Gemmell. Blah. Avoid at all costs!
