Caitlin Sweet’s The Door in the Mountain is based on the greek mythological character, Ariadne, and her slave girl Chara. Ariadne is the daughter of Minos, and her brother Asterion is the Minotaur, a famous bull-boy hybrid. He steals attention from her, as he is considered to be a sign from the gods. Angered by this, Ariadne schemes with her father to trap him forever, but Chara, who is a friend of Asterion, has a plan that will not allow that to happen. This book was interesting, as I never expectd what was going to occur next. However, in my opinion there wasn’t a true climax, and some of her ideas were a little confusing at first. Overall, I would rate it about 3.5 out of 5 stars.
