Shadow of Colossus by T.L. Higley is the first book in her Seven Wonders series. In the week before the earthquake that shook Rhodes and brought the famed Colossus to its knees, Tessa, the city's most famous courtesan, is in a fight for her life and her freedom. She has served as the mistress of Glaucus for years, becoming known for both her beauty and her wit upon the upper echelons of the city's government, but all of that is threatened by the machinations of Spiro, another government official who not only wants to rule Rhodes, but to own Tessa as well. Into this tumultuous situation comes Nikos, a mysterious man who is posing as a house slave and quickly works his way into Glaucus' home and Tessa's trust. When Glaucus is accidentally killed, Tessa and Nikos work together to keep his death a secret long enough for Tessa to escape the island and her servitude. Higley packs in a ton of historical detail, fascinating political schemes, powerful faith, and passion into this novel. Tessa has lived most of her life being hurt by others, so she has tried to lock up her heart to protect it from pain. But she learns from Nikos and Simeon, a Jewish servant, that in order to experience joy in life, you have to take pain along with it. It's a compelling message in a terrific book. <br/>
