Ariadne is the High Priestess of the Great Mother. It is her responsibility to consort with the Sacred King, whoever that may be.
Taranos, Prince of Tiryns defeated Pelinos to become the next Sacred King.
Ariadne learned at a young age never to have feelings for each of the Sacred Kings as they never last very long. There is something about Taranos though that has her knowing he is different than every other consort she has had. He will tear down her defenses; teach her all about love, sex, emotion, and kissing. In the end, will it be enough or is he destined to end up dead like all the other Sacred Kings before him?
Claiming Ariadne takes the reader onto a journey through ancient times. Ms. Gill used language that fit the time frame and gave the story an air of authenticity. However, there were times I was slightly confused as to what was going on, due to both the language barrier as well as some of the customs used by the characters within the story. This did not detract too much from the novel and I found myself wondering if Taranos and Ariadne were going to get their happy ending or if this was going to end as a Greek tragedy. You will just have to read the book to find out for yourself.
