Reviews

"As usual, Saylor's research is impeccable, but the history never distracts from the very human drama.... With this intelligent and compelling story, Saylor shows once again why fans of ancient historicals regard him as the leader of the field." --Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

"The problem with a writer with the brilliance of Steven Saylor is that he leaves almost impossible standards for other writers to measure up to. With A Mist of Prophecies, Saylor exceeds even his usual standards of excellence." --El Paso Times

"Vivid and robust...exquisite detail and powerful drama." --Philadelphia Inquirer

"If you want to visit Rome--ancient Rome--this is the way to go!" --Oklahoman

"It would be impossible to imagine a more stellar lineup of suspects in all imperial Rome." --Kirkus Reviews

"A fascinating work!" --Midwest Book Review

"One of the best mystery series being published today...A pitch-perfect work...gripping prose." --Austin Chronicle

"Saylor writes with such easy grace that the politics of these vicious times become as captivating to the reader as the mystery of Cassandra's life and violent death." --Tampa Tribune & Times

"A gritty depiction of the underbelly of the great city in its heyday...The secret history of Rome has never been so fascinating." --Maxim Jakubowski, The Guardian
