LABYRINTH: An action-packed adventure of modern conspiracy and medieval passion.
LABYRINTH is a mesmerizing tale penned down by KATE MOSSE. It is a testimony to Kate Mosse’s control over her brilliant skill of penning down her ideas and thoughts in words. The two parallel narratives never seem to repeat or collide or indeed swamp. Three secrets embedded into one grail influence the lives of two women joined together by destiny.
Labyrinth is a reader’s Holy Grail; mixing legend, religion, history, past and present in a heart-wrenching, thriller tale. It has a lot of colourful, delicate details about landscapes, couture and ambience.
It is surprising to find how two different intriguing stories later combine to form one bewitching tale .The two women are different in perspectives but it is shocking to see how they are connected with each other by their destiny. Alice (born in the 21st century), the reincarnated figure of Alaiis (present in the 13th century), is trapped in a maze which was left unsolved by Alaiis, who existed hundred of years ago.
It captivates you from the very first page until the final mix. If you are looking for a short , uncomplicated, simple read, this is not your cup of tea, but if you are looking for a pleasurable read, which will keep you hooked on to it till the end, Labyrinth is a must read .
Labyrinth stands out as a lone wave in the ocean of literature…
