When the truth could shatter the foundation of everything you believe.
A priestess who longs to uncover a secret. Calliope first fears, then defies, then struggles against an unwanted attraction toward the man who takes her hostage. In resisting those who seek to stop her from wearing the fabled coronet of Apollo, she finds the courage and determination to risk everything, even death.
A warrior seeking revenge, tasked to uncover a threat to Sparta. His orders must be his only focus, yet Diokles fights emotions he never expected to feel for another woman. With success at his fingertips, he cannot allow judgment to be clouded by a priestess who has earned his reluctant admiration and respect. To fail again would be to lose everything again.
Answers await at the shrine where the coronet lies hidden if they can reach it before a common foe does. One who will stop at nothing to kill Diokles and claim Calliope for himself.
