Deborah L. Davitt Releases First Book in Her The Rise of Caesarion's Rome Fantasy Series
by BWW News Desk - Nov 4, 2016

A single event can reshape a world - or shatter it forever. Fifteen years ago, Caesar escaped assassination, and went on to be crowned Emperor of Rome. His son by Cleopatra, Caesarion, carries the blood of Mars, Venus, Isis, and Osiris in his veins - but will the power that the gods have granted him, be enough to secure his hold on Rome after his father's death? What if the powers his sister, Eurydice Julia, has begun to manifest, and her puzzling visions that hint at the sacrifices that the gods of both Rome and Egypt will demand of them? Will they, together, be strong enough to forge a better world than the one their ancestors built? Return to the world of Edda-Earth, where magic and science coexist and all the gods are real. And always remember this truth: The end of all things . . . was just the beginning. Recent Praise for Ave, Caesarion: '. . . irresistible wit and superior characterization . . . .
