Ion was raised by the Delphic priestess after being abandoned on the temple steps. He grows up believing Apollo favours him, but when he learns Apollo wants him to leave behind the only life he's ever known, and the woman who has raised him, he wishes he could reject the path Apollo has chosen for him. But the gods can be both kind and cruel and he wouldn't be the only one who suffers if he refuses. Unknown to Ion, the path Apollo sets him on could uncover secrets from his past. Secrets that if they'd been discovered when he was born would have led to his death.
