Fifteen-year-old Thaleia is haunted by visions: roofs dripping blood, Athens burning. She tries to convince her best friend and all the villagers that she's not crazy. The gods do speak to her.
And the gods have plans for this girl.
When Xerxes' army of a million Persians marches straight to the mountain village Delphi to claim the Temple of Apollo's treasures and sacred power, Thaleia's gift may be her people's last line of defense.
Her destiny may be to save Greece...
...but is one girl strong enough to stop an entire army?
