It's 48 B.C. history altering events take place with strategic battles, intrigue, and romance between Ceasar and Cleopatra, while Egypt is ravaged by this brutal contest between Cleopatra and Ptolemy.
Protaganist Gordianus is in the middle again.
I am listing all the books in Steven Saylor's Rosa sub Roma series except the last one, which is on my wish list! This was a very enjoyable series...well written, educational (at least for me who previously had no interest in ancient Rome) and fun to see the progression of Gordianus the Finder's life.
You may want to order all of them because they're a fast read and, to me anyway, very addictive.
