Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
After the heroic female Pict warrior Barra and her partners, the Egyptian Kheperu and the Athenian Leucas, lose all their mercenary profits to pirates, they return to her foster home in Tyre to seek work. There they find a budding war among the ruling houses instigated by an evil sorcerer who raises the dead to fight for him. Barra and her partners must defeat him to save the city. This first novel colorfully depicts Phoenicia during Egyptian rule, but some of the characters lack the complexity needed to make the reader care about their fate. Recommended for historical fantasy collections.
