Icarus and the Wing Builder
Following a devastating earthquake, King Minos, the aging patriarch of an advanced maritime civilization employs Daedalus, an inventor from mainland Athens, to direct the restoration of his island. Given their history, it is an unusual selection. While reconstructing the capital, the renowned builder believes himself to be above the political dissonance. But as his Athenian-born son, Icarus, grows into manhood, he finds himself inexorably drawn into the conflict. Daedalus' journey of self-mastery takes him through the labyrinth of the minotaur, into a breathtaking love affair with a woman who will allow nothing to stand in the way of becoming the ruler of her own island. Forced to flee from the palace, Icarus and the wing builder travel the island's length and breadth, searching for a way off...and finding much more.
