So Shines the Night follows a young woman's journey to ancient Ephesus, a city bound in sorcery and teetering on the brink of anarchy.
Daria's past is one of danger and tragedy. She manages to escape and finds respite in the beautiful city of Ephesus, a trading center on the Aegean coast. Serving as tutor to Lucas, the charming tradesman who rescued her, Daria is eager to move on with her life.
But the darkness she fled has caught up with her. A sect of murderous sorcerers is gaining power, and Daria unwittingly finds herself on their bad side.
Meanwhile, she encounters a strange group who call themselves followers of The Way-a group that further threatens the local equilibrium. When her life is endangered, Daria seeks refuge among these people. She's drawn to them and their leader, Paul, even as she grapples with their teachings.
Then Lucas is imprisoned, and Daria fears even Paul's God can't save him. But she stumbles upon a shocking secret that could change everything-if she survives long enough to reveal the truth.
