In a city teetering at the brink of anarchy, Daria finds hope among people of The Way.

She escaped a past of danger and found respite in beautiful Ephesus, a trading center on the Aegean coast, serving as tutor to Lucas, the wealthy merchant who rescued her.

But the darkness she fled has caught up with her.

The high priests of Artemis once controlled the city, but a group of sorcerers are gaining power. And a strange group who call themselves followers of The Way further threaten the equilibrium. As Daria investigates Lucas's exploits into the darker side of the city, her life is endangered, and she takes refuge in the strange group of believers. She's drawn to Paul and his friends, even as she wrestles with their teachings.

When authorities imprison Lucas for a brutal crime, Daria wonders if even Paul's God can save him. Then she uncovers a shocking secret that could change everything?Lucas's fate, her position in his household, and the outcome of the tension between pagans and Christians. But only if she survives long enough to divulge what she knows.

?Meticulously-researched, spellbindingly written with luscious prose and compelling and complex characters.? ?Tosca Lee, New York Times best-selling author of Havah: The Story of Eve

Light overcomes darkness
4 stars By Jenny, Aug 19 2014
A powerful look into the world of the occult and the dangers that lie in the dark realms. Tracy Higley brings to life the prophet Paul and his fellow believers as they spread the teachings of Christ and fight the demonic kingdom in this novel. The central characters traverse through the mire of paganism and struggle with the truth and simplicity of Christianity. Like other novels by Tracy, So Shines the NIGHT, is steeped in history and effectively brings the ancient world and its people to life. A deeper read than most christian fiction though just as enjoyable.

So Shines the Night
5 stars By Narelle Atkins, Jun 22 2013
 I loved reading this book. The first few chapters hooked me into the story and I couldn't put it down. Daria and Lucas are intriguing and multi-layered characters. I wanted to see them triumph over their problems and achieve their seemingly impossible happily-ever-after ending.

I enjoyed seeing the city of Ephesus, with a rich cultural heritage, brought to life on the page. Paul, Timothy and other Biblical characters we learn about in the book of Acts and Paul's letter to the Ephesians play a crucial role in the story.

The spiritual warfare element in the story is fascinating and I liked seeing the early church from the perspective of outsiders who were seeking to learn the truth. I highly recommend this book to those looking for an insightful and gripping Biblical fiction story.

Thanks to Thomas Nelson and Net Galley for providing a review copy.
