Lysandra, an Amazon princess, will never surrender her heart to a mere man. At her coming-of-age ceremony, her mother chooses a king to sire her child. Now she only hopes for the stronger of the genders - a daughter.
Zarek, king of Thrace, is better known for his past profession as the most infamous thief of all Greece. He needs a son and heir, but not a wife, and decides Lysandra will serve him fine.
When the baby is born and taken by the Goddess Artemis to be sacrificed, two enemies are suddenly brought together. Lysandra and Zarek are paired against each other to retrieve the lyre of Apollo, a thunderbolt of Zeus, and the golden chalice of the wine god, Dionysus, in order to secure their baby's fate.
One contestant will win. One kingdom or tribe will die. Unless the Thief of Olympus can steal back from the gods the most precious gift of all.
