Details: Product Description Courage is tested, myths come to life, and long-held secrets are revealed Lilith Bennette runs at midnight. She scales walls in the dark and climbs without a harness. She hopes that if she follows exactly in the steps of her strong air force pilot mother, she’ll somehow figure out the mystery of her mother’s death—and the reason why her necklace of Greek symbols has been missing ever since. So when Lil is invited to Crete for a Future Leaders International conference, the same conference her mom attended years ago, she jumps at the chance to find some answers. But things in Melios Manor are not what they seem. Lil finds herself ensnared in an adventure of mythological proportions that leads her and her friends through the very labyrinth in which the real Minotaur was imprisoned. And they’re not in there alone. What secrets does the labyrinth hold, and will they help Lil find the truth about her mother? This book is perfect for older fans of Percy Jackson and the Olympians and the Heroes of Olympus--and anyone who wants to find out the true story behind the magic of the Greek gods. Praise for KEEPERS OF THE LABYRINTH: "Secret societies, mythology, and puzzles worthy of a Dan Brown novel all figure prominently in this thriller....There is much to recommend this book: all the protagonists are empowered female characters, it explores the idea that behind the stories of classical Greek mythology is a history of real people, and it is filled with exciting action."-- VOYA  "Secret societies, Greek mythology, and a group of strong female characters are all wrapped up in a mystery which will hit the mark with readers who have finished Rick Riordan’s “Percy Jackson” series."-- School Library Journal "Greek mythology provides the frame for this exciting amalgam of action, friendship, and girl-detective fiction."-- Booklist From School Library Journal Gr 5–8—After her mother apparently commits suicide by hanging herself, Lilith Bennette starts running every night at midnight. Her father, meanwhile, plays his guitar and checks his email. This night is different, however, since the next day Lil is off to her mother's homeland of Crete to attend Future Leaders International. She is hoping to find some connection to her mom in the place that the woman had gone as a child. When Lil arrives, she is quickly taken aback when she spies the symbol from her mother's pendant that went missing upon her death. Lil doesn't have much time to think, as the next day all of the girls attending FLI are thrown into a competition of sorts that highlights not only teamwork, but skill sets involving history, science and technology, combat and art. Lil's own group is comprised of a diverse set of girls and they are hopeful about their chances. FLI is more than what it seems—harboring long-held secrets and differing agendas from those presented. Soon Lil and her companions are faced with life and death challenges that are all tied to Greek mythology, and which are somehow tied to Lil's own mother's death. Set over the course of just a few days, the action starts quite quickly and continues throughout at a brisk pace.
