Overview

History's darkest secrets hide in plain sight.
A lone teen, a suspicious death, an ancient conspiracy.

Ten years after his father's mysterious death, 17-year-old Zach secretly returns to his wealthy hometown in search of answers. Why did his mother-who recently died-move him away and change his name, forbidding him to ever reveal his true identity or return home? Desperate to reconnect with this seemingly ideal place, Zach is troubled when a grade school friend commits suicide and no one seems to care. Ashley, a local teenager on the fringe, piques his interest with whispers of a secret committee that runs the town and pressures kids into dangerous overachievement. Finding a hidden passage into the committee's impenetrable headquarters Zach and Ashley discover a dark connection to Ancient Greece and the Oracle at Delphi. Their suspicions are confirmed, but the conspiracy is more terrifying and dangerous than they imagined, sending them running for their lives and praying to get out alive.

    Seventeen-year-old Zach is not desperate to find a girlfriend, does not want to sleep with the prettiest girl in school (or even spend the night chastely in her bedroom), and isn’t even in school anymore since he completed his education in France. So this is not your average teen thriller. It has a realistic (male) teen protagonist, who keeps his heart and his history hidden, his head down, and his home private. It introduces a slightly creepy town, that grows progressively more so. And it offers a pleasing supporting cast of characters, teen and adult, plus a truly intriguing central mystery.

    The writing is smooth, the characterization convincing, and the story progression is filled with twists and turns. History and mythology feel as real as technology and politics. And this small town’s secrets will keep readers both guessing and looking for more—what more could you ask of book one of a trilogy.

    Okay, the story ends on a cliff-hanger, but enough has been learned for the reader to feel a certain sense of completion. This promises to be a really great trilogy—the thinking teen’s answer to a world of look-alike romantic thrillers. I’m eager to read more.

    Disclosure: I was given a free copy and I offer my honest review.
