  • "What really marks LABYRINTH out is the fact that all the main roles --- goodies as well as baddies, historical and contemporary --- go to women. The job of heroine is split between the 13th-century Alaïs, the daughter of one of the leading men in Carcassonne, and Alice, a contemporary British woman who has managed to inveigle her way on to a local archaeological dig as a way of spinning out a lacklustre summer... It is a testimony to Kate Mosse's control over her material that the two narratives never seem to repeat or collide or, indeed, swamp one another...LABYRINTH is saturated with a passionate understanding of the region's past in a way that puts more conventional historical accounts to shame." - The Guardian
