This is a cleaver and interesting mystical story of Pompeii - an interesting and well done piece of romantic fiction.
The novel is written in an archaic style which distances the drama while simultaneously giving it a kind of ancient dignity.
Great story as a story -- and it's set against the backdrop of Pompeii and its impending destruction when Vesuvius erupts.
The book arrived in perfect constitional and was packaged well. I'm not going to address the story because it is a classic.Published 5 months ago by Matt
