Knossos

Book Description:

Knossos.

The legendary Labyrinth.

Go back millennia to a time when Knossos was the jewel of Crete, center of commerce and pilgrimage. A Neolithic sea captain is driven to find a new homeland for his people when the neighboring tribes turn against them. Proud, ambitious priests and priestesses rule Crete through its many gods. Daidalos, a wronged architect, builds the Labyrinth after a devastating personal tragedy; his successors, the priest-architects of Daidalos, are charged with expanding and glorifying his master work. A dutiful scribe attends the dead after a natural disaster of world-changing fury. A dynasty of Mycenaean conquerors changes Crete, for good or ill. And a crazed girl’s passion and the mysterious bull-man of the Labyrinth will change history.

In these ten stories of Minoan Crete, spanning a period of five thousand years, Knossos is at the heart of it all.

H.M. Flath (goodreadscomharryflath) | 47 comments I have just posted a review of Knossos on Amazon and am looking to where I should post it on Goodreads. I have tried to find Knossos but the only place I been able to locate it is right here on Making Connections. Is there somewhere particular that I should be posting the review?

Thanks for reading and reviewing. I'm glad you liked the book. To answer your question: yes, some of the events in the book are factual. The cycles of destruction and reconstruction are all real events. The high priest in Chapter Five is based on a real person. Pottery styles, dress, architecture, etc. is authentic to the period.


H.M. Flath (goodreadscomharryflath) | 47 comments Laura,
I have just posted my review following the link and have recommended it to several of my friends who enjoy historical fiction.
Thanks for sharing Knossos with me. I am now going to look for other books that you have written.
Sincerely Harry
