I know only a little about the historical Anna and have read an excerpt from her Alexiad. This book was a nice fictional take on her life that I enjoyed reading.

I liked this book but it was a little too short for me.

Anna of byzantium is a fictionalized story of the Princess who was brought up to be Queen only to have her brother steel her throne, and place her in excile after she and her mother attempted to kill him.

The author did an excellent job of allowing the ready to see what life was like for a royal family in that era.

The story was geared for young teens, but as an adult I enjoyed it. It was a nice light read which could be a starting point of study for someone wanting to learn about the Byzantium empire pre Roman era.
