"With its novel plot point being the temporal kidnapping of Caesar, A Coin for the Ferryman is an exciting and innovative thriller with a solid historical foundation."-Erin Britton, San Francisco Book Review

"The book felt like a love letter to the classics. It was beautifully
written, and well-balanced between modern drama and affection for Rome."--Jo Niederhoff, ManhattanBookReview

"Picture a beautiful young woman racing down the freeway in a classic red Corvette with a
distrustful Julius Caesar riding shotgun...A wild ride from start to finish."--Sarah Rice, Booklist Magazine

"A fun, thrilling and genre-bending novel. It was also
thought-provoking and with the backdrop of Las Vegas it made the story
even more of an exciting time travel romp."--Stephanie, Bookfever.com

"In lively style, Megan Edwards gets us turning pages."--David Brin, best-selling author of Star Tide Rising, The Postman, and the Out of time series.

"Megan Edwards has written a fine novel of ancient times, one that
will entertain and inform, an important contribution--and an
attention-grabber."--Selden Edwards, NY Times best-selling author of The Little Book and The Lost Prince

"A Coin for the Ferryman retells the circumstances of Julius
Caesar's assassination in 44 B.C. with some highly entertaining twists
and turns. This imaginative yarn has it all: time travel and Las Vegas,
archaeological digs and billionaire poultry magnates, and a good portion
of sex and skulduggery."--Michael Maas, William Gaines Twyman Professor of History at Rice University, and author of Readings in Late Antiquity, The Cambridge Companion to the Age of Justinian, and John Lydus and the Roman Past.

"This wildly imaginative journey -- from the era of Julius Caesar to
late 1990s Las Vegas and Los Angeles -- offers a thrilling glimpse of
time travel and its potential ramifications. The plot draws you in
quickly, and the characters and detailed scenes keep you engaged
throughout. A deeply enjoyable read."--Heather Skyler, author of Vegas Girls and The Perfect Age

"A highly entertaining story line, with compelling and colorful
characters, time travel, chases, and Las Vegas. Any student of Classics
who has ever visited Las Vegas has wondered about what it'd be like for
Julius Caesar to actually visit Caesars Palace. You know you want to know how that went, and it doesn't disappoint! "--Dawn Smith-Popielski, Recipient of the 2021 Keely Lake Advocacy Award from the American Classical League

"In its diversity of settings and languages, its intelligent combination of experimental science with high culture, A Coin for the Ferryman
creates a world in which Caesar emerges as a grand figure who is also a
believably flesh-and-bone man, unperplexed by any adventure."--W. Jeffrey Tatum, best-selling author of Always I Am Caesar, The Patrician Tribune, and Professor of Classics at The Victoria University of Wellington.
