In a city teetering on the brink of anarchy, Daria finds hope among the people of the Way.
Daria’s dangerous past has taught her that evil is real, that it can consume a person. She saw it happen with her husband, before he took his own life. Widowed but well-educated, Daria becomes a tutor to Lucas, the rich traveling merchant from Ephesus who rescued her. When she arrives, she discovers evil has a strong foothold, and that Lucas himself seems drawn to evil and sorcery.
The high priests of Artemis once controlled the city, but a group of sorcerers are gaining power, and a strange group called followers of the Way further threaten the equilibrium. As Daria investigates Lucas’ exploits into the darker side of the city, her life is endangered, and she takes refuge in the strange group of believers. She’s drawn to Paul and his friends, even as she wrestles with their teachings.
When authorities imprison Lucas for a brutal crime, Daria wonders if even Paul’s god can save him. Then she uncovers a shocking secret that could change everything—Lucas’ fate, her position in his household, and the outcome of the tension between pagans and Christians. But only if she survives long enough to divulge what she knows.
Daria must act before everyone she loves is destroyed.
