Read full description of the books:
Icarus and the Wing Builder is the soaring story of the first human flight by a legendary father and son, two ordinary people of another time whose deeds have become legend. The book tells a mythic tale of rites of passage, love, betrayal, and redemption, set upon the mystical islands and sailing ships of the ancient Aegean Sea.
Following a devastating earthquake, King Minos, the aging patriarch of an advanced maritime civilization employs Daedalus, an inventor from mainland Athens, to direct the restoration of his island. Given their history, it is an unusual selection. While reconstructing the capital, the renowned builder believes himself to be above the political dissonance. But as his Athenian-born son, Icarus, grows into manhood, he finds himself inexorably drawn into the conflict. Daedalus' journey of self-mastery takes him through the labyrinth of the minotaur, into a breathtaking love affair with a woman who will allow nothing to stand in the way of becoming the ruler of her own island. Forced to flee from the palace, Icarus and the wing builder travel the island's length and breadth, searching for a way off...and finding much more.
