Follow the beginning of the Minoan nation through the eyes of Minos, the first king of the island of Crete, as he brings his people out of the Neolithic Age and spurs them forward into a time of enlightenment, scientific discovery, industrialization, and enterprise. His adventures take him around the Mediterranean and influence surrounding civilizations. The Minoans pre-date the Greeks by almost two thousand years, and yet the culture Minos established there was the foundation of our own. Lovers of historical fiction are sure to be enthralled and swept away by this award-winning novel.

This long awaited breath of fresh air is here, at last, in ebook format! Brilliantly written it captures the essence of life in the birthplace of civilization and transports us through discovery and opposition, human violence and natural disaster of unparalleled catastrophe. A guaranteed pleasure.

Interesting essay showing human actions becoming myth and religion. The volcanic eruption descriptions are chilling. The story is unnecessarily sexually graphic in places.
