In a reality TV retelling of the myth of the Minotaur, seventeen-year-old Ariadne fights to save her brother, Asterion, and make her own destiny in a world of celebrity, surveillance, and feigned authenticity. Her royal family's entertainment empire is the hottest thing on television. The biggest moneymaker? The Labyrinth Contest, a TV extravaganza in which Ariadne leads fourteen teens into a maze to kill a monster. To win means endless glory; to lose means death. In ten seasons, no one has ever won. When Theseus arrives at the competition and asks Ariadne to help him to victory, she assumes he's interested in her just to boost ratings. Their chemistry is undeniable, though, and she can help him survive. If he wins, the contest would end for good. But if she helps him, she endangers her family's empire -- and the monster would have to die. Can she find a way to forge her own destiny and save the people she loves?--adapted from jacket.
