Hold onto your hat! Greek mythology meets reality TV in this audiobook--with a bit of dystopian novel thrown in, as well. Narrator Amanda Dolan keeps the story straight for listeners with her flexible voicings of the many extreme characters. Based on the myth of the Minotaur, the audiobook begins with backstory that is extremely bizarre because the events took place on a television show called "The Labyrinth Contest." Now teen Ariadne must lead 14 other teenagers into a maze to kill or be killed. When a boy asks for her help, things get even more complicated. Dolan breezes through as if it's all perfectly normal, adding verisimilitude to the author's careful world- building. Dolan fully fleshes out Ariande and ensures that her motives are clear. With quick transitions in tone and timbre, Dolan adds to the depth and believability of this cultural pastiche. S.K.G. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2020]
