Ancient Greece is a place where mortals are the playthings of the gods but at the core of each city-state lies a Labyrinth, where mortals can shape the heavens to their own design.

When Theseus comes away from the Labyrinth with the prize and his beloved, the Mistress of the Labyrinth, his future seems assured. But she bears him only a daughter and when he casts her aside for this, the world changes. From that day forward, the Labyrinths decay, and power fades from the city-states.

A hundred years pass, Troy falls, the Trojans scatter. Brutus, the warrior-king of Troy, receives a vision of distant shores where he can rebuild the ancient kingdom. He will move heaven and earth to reach his destiny, but in the mists is a woman of power who has her own reasons for luring Brutus to these green shores.

If Brutus makes this journey successfully, it will be the next step in the Game of the Labyrinth, and the start of a complicated contest of wills to span the centuries.

    " Sara Douglass is one of my favorite authors now and I was excited to get into a new series. I very much liked this, the writing is excellent, EXCEPT holy sex moly. It's almost like she was melding steamy trashy romance with fantasy. The book seemed to almost be centered around it and there was a lot of more disturbing situations. Motherhood & fertility & virility are a big part of the storyline, but it was just too far for me. Still a good book and good storyline. "

    " A clash of people, culture, secrets, and magic, the Labyrinth originally built by Daedulous for king Minos is a piece of a puzzle to be controlled by its mistress. The sacred gods of a country overturned and people are manipulated, only to strike back. Everyone is dead at the end, and those reincarnated will begin to play another round of the Troy Game. "

    " I didn't enjoy this book very much. Took almost 1/2 of the book before it even got interesting for me. It can all be boiled down to ... blah blah.. I hate you, blah blah. Oh I think I love you. blah blah. no, no one else can have you, blah blah. I will stop you. blah blah. but I still love you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jordyn | 1/26/2014

    " Not my favorite Douglass book, but I still liked it. I will read the rest of the series at some point. "

    " I really liked this book. (I've never met a Sara Douglass book I didn't like) It combines elements of ancient Roman mythology and Celtic mythology in a compelling fantasy world. It has power plays, sorcery, gods and goddesses, as well as evil personified in the Minotaur. There is quite a bit of unrequited love, sensuousness, and lust. The story line has a parallel story that takes place in the future running throughout the book. Chapters are told in different voices, which helps to give insight into the well-developed characters. This is the first of a four book series. I've also read the second book and found it just as compelling. Now, I have to acquire the last two books in this series. "

    " Reminds me of the books I used to read in my early teens. Didn't hate the book, not impressed either. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Molly | 1/13/2014

    " So good, I could not put it down! Stayed up until 4am reading it. I loved that it combined Greek Mythology with Celtic lore for a spellbinding tale. And the characters are fantastic - I can't wait to read the other books in this series! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel Myers | 12/21/2013

    " I love this book, this is by far one of my favorite fantasy books. It has an amzing story that will keep you turning into the night. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsay | 12/12/2013

    " The settings and mythology in this book is so well described and researched, the characters realistic and interesting, and the story fast paced and full of suspense. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series. "

    " Did not expect that this was going to become one of My Top 5 Fave Reads. Sara Douglass is amazing in her rendition of The Trojan War/Reincarnation Soap Opera Story. Will always remember Ms. Douglass' Original Storytelling. RIP Sara Douglass. <3 "

    " Enjoyed this book, but it is very slow. I am looking forward to getting my hands on the next one "

    " MY I SAY THAT THIS BOOK TOOK A LIFE ON ITS ON "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tammy | 6/12/2012

    " Really enjoyed this, especially since I read the 2nd book first. Now I understand the backstory a bit more... but... it still wasn't all that clear. I love the mix of mythology with the storytelling and will definitely read more of her books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa | 1/23/2012

    " My favorite series, hands down. It has everything I love: past lifes, greek magic, celtic magic, fate, love, lust, of the list goes on. A must read that takes you through some of the most interesting places and time periods. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dianne | 11/12/2011

    " I enjoy historical fiction and this was sort of based on real history. Rather sort of a long story that could have been shorter. Basically a fictional account after the fall of Troy and rebuilding on the island of, at that time, barbarian Britian. Maybe #2 in the seriew will be better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Talya | 3/6/2011

    " Not as good as the Wayfarer Redemption series, but a good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 12/13/2010

    " Once again (and finally for the Troy Game) Douglass weaves actual historical events and an 'authentic' parallel magic world to create a terrific story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brenda | 8/16/2010

    " Once again her series has kept me engaged. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jess | 11/27/2009

    " I enjoy Sara Douglass, but her endings are always disappointing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judith | 7/13/2009

    " THis is the last book of the series and I did enjoy it. As did the other series I read by this author, the love stories did not always work out the way I imagined they would. The fantasy part of the book was a good story but was getting a tad tiresome. I'm glad this is the last book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jori | 11/22/2008

    " Not as good as the rest of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 6/21/2008

    " finally, in the last book of the series the characters get a little less annoying. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Logan | 5/30/2008

    " Absolutely wonderful. This is Brutus as you've always wanted to see him and as you always knew he could be. A beautiful ending to the Troy Game series. Much, much better than the ending given to Wayfarer Redemption with Crusader. "
