Greek mythology and fae fantasy romance collide in this sweeping story of divided loyalty and forbidden love.

I am the daughter of the king, and he is the fae monster my father sent me to kill.

For years, the people of my kingdom have whispered tales of the monstrous Minotaur in the depths of an underground maze. Every night, he enters my dreams. His golden eyes capture mine. His horns caress my spine. And I always wake drenched in fear.

He’s waiting for me, I know.

But when I venture into the darkness, I find that the monster is in fact a handsome man, cursed by the fae gods to roam the maze. Trapped in the labyrinth with him, I start feeling something that I know I should not—a strange desire wells up within me.

My heart is torn between my loyalty to my kingdom and the man whose loneliness echoes my own.

As we attempt to escape the treacherous maze, secrets that were meant to remain hidden in its depths beg to be revealed, and with them comes a love so forbidden yet so powerful that it could forever change my life.

Author’s note: This book is intended for readers who are 18 or older, as it contains explicit content and darker elements, including mature language, violence, and sex. The story is a loose reimagining of the Greek myth of the Minotaur, and it is a standalone fae fantasy romance with an HEA.

Philinna Wood

I’m a Greek author who loves fantasy romance and Greek mythology. So I thought to combine them both and write a new fae fantasy romance series inspired by Greek mythology!

This way my Fae Gods series was born. A series of standalone fae fantasy romance books, in the same world. Every story is inspired by a different Greek myth and filled with many beloved tropes such as: enemies-to-lovers, found family, only one bed, and many more.

The first book, Fae Gods: Maze is inspired by the myth of the mighty Minotaur, and it is a tale of forbidden love and divided loyalty, which I hope you’ll love.
