Publisher's summary

This is the classic story of the young Theseus - Prince of Troizen, King of Eleusis and Athens, slayer of the Minotaur. Mary Renault's powerful novel captures the modern imagination by weaving myth, legend, history, and fiction into the story of a young hero's search for his destiny, or moira. With divine guidance, Theseus faces countless challenges in his quest for his moira. From Theseus's early life as a prince, to his leadership of a captive team of bulldancers in Crete, not to mention his thrilling encounters with Poseidon, The King Must Die captures the full force of adventure, battle, and an epic quest.
