Family Secrets by Robyn McGrew
My rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
Shalazar, the daughter of Lord Sargon the Priest-King of Babylon, is about to be initiated into Temple of the Winged God but wants to find out what’s behind a sealed down in an old temple. After breaking through the seal of the Winged God, she enters a dank vault with crumbling steps to find a man with a head of the bull who is living in filth. Shalazar brings food, drink, and candles to the prisoner while hiding the fact from her father only to learn that soon the old temple will soon been deserted meaning the man-bull would basically be dead. Shalazar helps the man-bull escape and learns his name is Minoa and the next day is initiated into the Temple of the Winged God, who turns out to be Minoa who was testing her.
My little write up doesn’t do the story justice, but it was a good story that was only hurt because of the incorrect historical and mythological facts laid out.
