They soon find out that the usually placid Keftiu can deal very effectively with anyone who causes trouble. As Thasos grows up, he becomes aware that there is a very dark and troubling underside to this world. Finally his life is placed in terrible danger when he falls under the spell of two of the island's most powerful women: Britomartis, the Goddess of the Hunt and Pasiphae, the Moon Maiden of Cnossos. Sucked into the island's dark, labyrinthine underworld, with no prospect of escape, a terrified Thasos is forced to make a very dangerous choice.
The Moon Maiden brings the fascinating, long vanished society of Minoan Crete back to glorious life in a fast-moving tale of love, ambition and betrayal.
Product Details About the Author. Both keen travellers, they have - between them - lived in such far-flung places as the USA, South Africa, Germany, Greece and Turkey - as well as Portsmouth, Manchester, Wellingborough and Watford where for some years they owned and ran a large second-hand bookshop in the high street. In they moved to the island of Jersey. They first met when living on another island, Crete, and they have long been fascinated by things Cretan.
The Moon Maiden and, indeed, the whole Cnossos trilogy is an attempt not so much to revive a vanished ancient world as to convey to the reader our sense of a timeless, mystical essence about Crete that is indefinably special - which perhaps explains why, in Minoan times, the island was sacred.
