Labyrinthus - A Latin Novella by Andrew Olimpi. Princess Ariadna’s family is . . . well . . . complicated. Her father Minos, king of Crete, ignores her. Her mother is insane. Her half-brother is a literal monster—the Minotaur who lives deep within the twisting paths of the Labyrinth. When a handsome stranger arrives on the island, Ariadna is faced with the ultimate choice: should she stay on the island of Crete, or should she abandon her family and her old life for a chance at escape . . . and love? This novella is adapted from Ovid’s "Metamorphoses" and Catullus’ "Carmen 64," and is suitable for all novice readers of Latin. This novella was written using only 120 unique Latin words, 45 of which are close English cognates.

Paperback, 90 pages.
