Elegant, secretive Sabina may be Empress of Rome, but she still stands poised on a knife’s edge. She must keep the peace between two deadly enemies: her husband Hadrian, Rome’s brilliant and sinister Emperor; and battered warrior Vix, who is her first love. But Sabina is guardian of a deadly secret: Vix’s beautiful son Antinous has become the Emperor’s latest obsession.
Empress and Emperor, father and son will spin in a deadly dance of passion, betrayal, conspiracy, and war. As tragedy sends Hadrian spiraling into madness, Vix and Sabina form a last desperate pact to save the Empire. But ultimately, the fate of Rome lies with an untried girl, a spirited redhead who may just be the next Lady of the Eternal City . . .
LADY OF THE ETERNAL CITY by Kate Quinn is an interesting Historical Fiction. #4 in the “Empress of Rome” series, but can be read as a stand alone set in Second century Romance. Another great story by Ms. Quinn! Filed with passion, betrayal, danger, murder, court intrigue, and romance.
Ms. Quinn is a masterful storyteller of Second Century Rome, it’s history, and she brings the story to life on the pages of her storytelling.
Filled with drama, and relationships between an Empress, an Emperor, friends, assassins, and so much more.
A Historical fiction fans delight from beginning to end. If you enjoy Rome history, court intrigue, and multifaceted relationships, than I would strongly recommend this fascinating tale.
