Description

First-century Corinth is a city teeming with commerce and charm. It's also filled with danger and corruption - the perfect setting for Ariadne's greatest adventure. 

After years spent living with her mother and oppressive grandfather in Athens, Ariadne runs away to her father's home in Corinth, only to discover the perilous secret that destroyed his marriage: Though a Greek of high birth, Galenos is the infamous thief who has been robbing the city's corrupt of their ill-gotten gains. 

Desperate to keep him safe, Ariadne risks her good name, her freedom, and the love of the man she adores to become her father's apprentice. As her unusual athletic ability leads her into dangerous exploits, Ariadne discovers she secretly revels in playing with fire. But when the wrong person discovers their secret, Ariadne and her father find their future - and very lives - hanging in the balance. 

When they befriend a Jewish rabbi named Paul, they realize his radical message challenges everything they've fought to build, yet offers something for which neither dared hope. 

Be transported back in time by this gripping tale of adventure, bravery, and redemption, and discover why Debbie Macomber says, "No one brings the Bible to life like Tessa Afshar."

Remarkably coherent , tight plot. A joy to listen.

Adored how the narrator slightly changed her voice, with each character! The plot was moving, realistic, and believable. Fast moving, without syrupy "stuck" parts.

Heart Searching

Tessa Afshar again brilliantly integrates and explains Biblical history through great story telling. I am left with a more personable and loving picture of Paul the Apostle. The development of the characters and action in the story kept me reading. With every story of I read, I experience God's love more personally.

Thief of Corinth

I won the kindle version in a Goodreads drawing and I purchased the audible version. Tessa Afshar is an excellent Biblical fiction author. I’ve received an additional blessing listening to her books, as I’ve grown even more intimate with our Lord. The narrator was outstanding as well. Looking forward to many more books by this author.

Excellent, Excellent, Excellent!!

I so very much needed the Biblical truths in this fictional story. The way she portrays God's Word in one's everyday life is amazing! Very good story and thoroughly enjoyable! I have listened to and read every one of her books and love them all!

This narrator is great except sometimes you can't tell who is talking, but not all the time, but pay close attention to names. You will want to pay close attention anyway so you won't miss anything!

I have listened to this book 3 times now and still love it! I wish I had ten more like this waiting! I have also purchased the written book to give to friends who can't do audiobooks. Excellent, just excellent!

Wonderful Story!

Tessa Afshar has combined a great piece of fiction and weaves in Biblical narrative creating a delightful story. I was particularly taken by the background information on Corinth, which helps me understand the culture that Paul is writing to in his epistles to the Corinthians in the Bible.

The narration was beautifully done by Rendah Heywood. I have found her to be the best reader Ms. Afshar has used thus far.

5 big stars!

Surprisingly wonderful!!!

I love historical fiction but it’s rare to find one that is biblical, historical but also well written.

Tessa is a great writer. But she also faithfully represents the biblical characters she includes. Furthermore, the whole time period comes alive.

I look forward to the rest of her works!

flat ending

while the book was engaging and well written, the ending had much to be desired. Did Tessa Asher write this story with a character in The Bible in mind?

I wish I had done more research on the book

I bought this book without reading the reviews because it showed up on a young adult list that said it had a strong female character and was a fun romp through history, great historical fiction. It failed to mention that this history was not actual scholarly history, but instead an extremely dogmatic religious perspective that ignored the actual history of such a rich part of the world. I’ll be honest, my son enjoyed this book up to a certain point. I’m okay with a bit of god or religion in any book, but having it shoved down my throat in such an unabashed way was disturbing. At some point the story took a solid, in-your-face, extremely fanatical Christian-supremacist turn that was not only disturbing but highly inaccurate from every scholarly historical perspective, Why this appeared on a general young adult list as historical fiction is beyond me. It is fiction. It isn’t historical. It’s dogma, pure and simple. Any similar book that treated Islam (or other religion) like this would never make it that far, even if Audible chose to carry it. I don’t question the book’s right to exist for audiences who search for that kind of thing, but did feel disappointed and am now extra cautious about what audible suggests as ‘Great Young Adult Listens.”
