Talented artist Paleus finds work painting murals in the palace and falls in love with the king's youngest daughter - but the match can never be, due to their different ranks. Soon violence rocks the peaceful island. An Egyptian prince comes to Kaptaria for an official visit and is almost assassinated. Then, the older princess is murdered. A hunt for her killer begins. A series of earthquakes disturb the mythological Minotaur and free him from his labyrinth. Intense action, natural disasters, political intrigue, mythology, and the age old struggle of good versus evil make for an exciting adventure.
