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 move him away then go into hiding to die alone? Why did she change his name, forbidding him to ever reveal his true identity? Why was he never allowed to return home?
Left with nothing and no one, Zach is desperate to reconnect with this seemingly “perfect” town. But something isn’t right. When a local teen commits suicide and no one seems to care, Zach’s hopes collapse into disenchantment and suspicion. Ashley, a local teenager on the fringe, piques his interest with whispers of a secret committee controlling the lives of everyone around them. Could it be true? Together, Zach and Ashley delve into the hidden life of the town and discover a dark connection to Ancient Greece and the Oracle at Delphi.

What is Delphi?
For over 1,000 years people of the ancient Mediterranean flocked to the Oracle at Delphi to get a vision of their future. A woman called the Pythia sat deep in the Temple of Apollo, inhaling noxious vapors and delivering cryptic prophecies to faithful visitors.
For centuries into the modern era, the Oracle at Delphi was thought to be a myth or a clever ruse to separate gullible ancients from their money. But in recent years, archaeologists and geologists have made discoveries at the Temple of Apollo at Delphi that confirm the ancient texts, even if they can’t explain the mystery of the Pythia’s powers.
In a time when magic and superstition ruled the world, Delphi was exalted above all other seers and oracles. The prophecies dispensed covered every human interest from romance to finance to empires. This holy mountainside city about 100 miles from Athens became the most important cultural, social and religious site in the Western world and cast a spell on its people that lasted an entire age.
Just think what would happen if a modern-day secret society tracing its roots back 3,000 years to the Oracle at Delphi was manipulating the world and coercing its people to maintain their high social and economic status. This is the kind of conspiracy that Zach and Ashley encounter in THE LEAGUE OF DELPHI. What would a society like that do to protect their secret and keep their grip on the power they believe is rightfully theirs?
