Domna

Coming January 2019!!

“My destiny, my goal, my ambition was to be a priestess. Instead I was forced to become a wife. Even worse, I became the wife of man with no goals, no ambition. A man who wanted destiny to fall on his lap like a nymph who’d indulged in too much of Dionysus’s bounty. Worse still, I was already in love with another man.”

Set in the Greco-Roman world introduced in the Osteria Chronicles, Domna is a six-part serialized novel that tells the story of Sofia Domna, a woman whose destiny is abruptly changed when she reprimands the wrong man.

As Sofia’s life moves through the trials of a forced marriage, motherhood, and yearning temptation, she learns that destiny isn’t given; it’s made by cunning, endurance, and, at times, bloodshed.

If you like the political intrigue, adventure, and love triangles of historical fiction by Philippa Gregory and Bernard Cornwell, and the mythological world-building of fantasy fiction by Madeline Miller and Simon Scarrow, you’ll love Domna.

In the classic style of serialization, Domna is told in six parts, with the first part scheduled for release 9 January 2019. Pre-order your copy today!
