at the edge of civilization: krakens, cyclops, even the fearsome dragon.
Now, Heron of Alexandria must confront those myths aboard Hoth
the Black's iron ship, the Jörmungandr, as they flee the
remnants of the Roman navy bent on revenge.
As she struggles to recover from her horrific injuries, and the repercussions
of what happened in the Roman Senate, she must decide - once and forever - what
she truly believes in.
When Heron returns to Alexandria, she finds the High Priest of Sobek, Lysimachus, has wrested control of the great city of Alexandria from the nobles by demonstrating his mastery over death. Alone and in a city arrayed against her, Heron must find allies, rescue Sepharia from the clutches of the crocodile cult, and somehow find a way to overthrow Lysimachus from his iron-clad control of the city, otherwise she'll lose her beloved City of Wonders for eternity.
Come along and learn how numerologists court disaster, or how the value of gold can be a fickle thing, or that the ichor of the gods can bring danger and love, or that madness is a perfectly sane business venture, or in the end that curses can bring blessings to those patient enough to wait.
Come along and witness how strange a place the world is, and in that same breath, how very not...
