Freddie receives a mysterious text from his dad, a soldier fighting in a faraway war. He is in trouble and only his son can help. Transported to the twisting, turning labyrinth of ancient Minos, Freddie must travel through time to fulfill his destiny. Can he slay the half-bull, half-man Minotaur and rescue his father?
