Better than most fantastic fair. Real historical fiction for youth. Not ages 9-12. More like, 9-18.
one of the best books ever Dec 19, 2006
The story is simply fascinating. It is set in the mysterious setting of the Byzantine era. It is a love story, a spy story and a historical story all in one. You won't be able to let the book down. Guaranteed.
