Format: Paperback
I absolutely love this book and it's prequel.
There are so few stories based on Byzantine Culture (Fantasy or otherwise) that this was a must buy for me.

It would take forever to describe this book, and like most myths and legends, the explanation would ruin it.

So I will say buy this book, and enjoy the wonder and mystery.
