But King Minos and his people had a problem - the Minotaur, a creature part-man, part-bull, which rampaged throughout the palace killing those it caught.

Shadow of the Minotaur by Alan Gibbons | Goodreads
While other people from Phoenix’s world get drawn into the game, they are characterised as not-the-hero – in the process of getting them into the game, Phoenix nominates people to play his heroine, villain and an incidental character, but their role is always subservient to his. The word "Minotaur" derives from the Ancient Greek Μῑνώταυρος, a compound of the name Μίνως ( Minos) and the noun ταῦρος 'bull', translated as '(the) Bull of Minos'.As part of this campaign, Gibbons initiated countrywide 'read ins' to protest against library closures, which he described as a "cultural crime".
