I love this kind of story! The characters are wonderfully written and the book contains a diabolical villain that you will truly love to hate. The author, A. K. Patch, has woven gritty fiction into Greek history and used a plethora of characters to make this story truly impressive. At the beginning, Lauren and Zack, two university professors are living the “good life” in San Diego. Before long they are swept through time to ancient Greece and the land of the Spartans, fight for their own survival, and, in turn, learn a lot about life and themselves. The writing is superb and the story moves along smartly, never boring. There are lots of surprises, twists and turns, and people to love and hate. It’s clear that the author really knows his history, and the battle scenes are so descriptive that the reader feels like he or she is right in the middle of the action. I can easily see this book and the ones that follow as a series of hit movies. I’ll be in line to get the next one, that’s for sure.

This is a must read! At first I thought the subject of Ancient Greece a little daunting but the plot moves very fast and I simply couldn't put this book down. How refreshing to find a strong and heroic female character that dominates the story in a time of Gods and Men. The author has created a unique scenario of current issues we face today and the similarities they faced in Ancient Greece in 480 BCE. Passage at Delphi is a thoroughly enjoyable read.

I have to agree with the other reviews on here--this book is definitely a must-read! It's easy to tell the author REALLY knows his history and it's always exciting to encounter a book with a strong heroine as one of the main characters, especially in a story with this much action. I was also kind of intimidated by the idea of a book set in Ancient Greece, but the author made the story really accessible. It's also interesting how the story compares problems we face in modern democracies to problems that ultimately led to the fall of democracy in Ancient Greece. This book would make a great gift for just about anyone, including yourself! You won't be able to put it down!

I couldn't put this book down. I really enjoy reading about the spartans and ancient Greek history. It starts in San Diego, CA where I am from and really struck home with me. I watched Quantum Leap and time travel movies growing up but I also enjoy movies like Indiana Jones and Star Trek. I am also a fan of book series like Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings. I am buying a few of these books as gifts for friends and family and would suggest this as a read for anyone who enjoys a good historical fiction thriller with extreme plot twists and turns. I can't wait for book 2 of this series.

This book kept me up nights because I couldn't put it down. The action and plot twists were great. You absolutely fall in love with the characters. Can't wait for Book 2 of the series to be released.

Great read from beginning to end.
Once I started, I did not want to put it down.
Lot's of action, interesting mythology.
Really ties today to the days of the Greek Gods-many parallels.

Let me begin by saying that I love history...not just facts and dates, but more importantly, getting a glimpse of the ethos of a historical period. I also am especially captivated by the history of Classical Greece, which was the birthplace of the West's political, scientific and philosophical traditions. The author integrates all of these things seamlessly, and even more, in a tempered, non-bombastic manner into his novel. He also, in a very innovative fashion, juxtaposes modern and Classical Greek cultures by having his protagonists move through time between the two periods. In addition, he further juxtaposes the Greeks with their barbarian neighbors, thereby demonstrating the remarkable intellectual development in that small region of Europe that sparked one of the most important social evolutions humanity has ever created.

The plot is very interesting, taking unseen twists and turns, and the characters become fleshed out as believable people by both their actions and thoughts. Their motivations are real, and although there are both heroes and villains, they are all human with their own weaknesses and virtues, so that even the villain becomes a character deserving of empathy. I will not go into the plot...others have already done this in their reviews. I will just say that this book is an excellent, riveting read that will have you very eager for the next book in the series

This was an excellent combination of entertainment and education! The story was captivating and the characters interesting and believable. A.K. Patch expertly weaves Greek history into this compelling and exciting story. Historical events of which I had only cursory knowledge are presented in vivid detail in a story that is contemporary and engaging. The characters move through a story and background that cleverly ties life in present-day America to the events in ancient Greece. Patch also inserts some iconic San Diego landmarks into the story in a fun and creative way. The Greek locations he uses in the story make me want to jump on a Mediterranean cruise and see the back drop first hand. My wife's favorite movie is a Disney film from the 60's called "The Moonspinners." "Passage at Delphi" has all the charm and excitement of that movie, but with a contemprary and even more engaging storyline. I am really looking forward to the next in the series—Maybe I’ll read it on the plane to Athens!
