Editorial Reviews

Review

“Elisabeth Storrs’s Tales of Ancient Rome series should really be called Tales of Ancient Veii, as it brings the Etruscan town to life. Thank you, Elisabeth, for giving a voice to some of the most intriguing pieces of the Museum of Veii.” —Iefke van Kampen, director of the Museo dell'Agro Veientano, Formello (Rome)

“In Call to Juno Elisabeth Storrs tells a vivid story of love and war, honor and revenge set in Ancient Rome. Using a skillful blend of history and drama, and full of characters both heroic and human, Storrs transports readers to that long-ago world. Highly recommended.” —M.K. Tod author of Lies Told in Silence

“Not much is known about the ancient Etruscans but Call to Juno is a vivid and fascinating evocation of their fight for survival against the might of Rome. This is a tale of great love and great hatred, of treachery, courage, and honor, told in loving detail by a knowledgeable and practiced story-teller.” —Felicity Pulman, author of The Janna Chronicles

“Elisabeth Storrs brings Ancient Rome vividly to life; her skill as a writer is equivalent to a time machine—we are there amid the history and the drama, immersed so deep that in calling to Juno we expect her to answer back.” —Helen Hollick, author of The Sea Witch Voyages

“God cults, the different faces of love. and the cruelty of war are among the themes in Elisabeth Storrs’ novel on the rivalry between the Romans and the Etruscans. A well-researched, powerful novel that builds to a memorable and terrifying end.” —Isolde Martyn, author of Mistress to the Crown

Call to Juno is a stirring saga of war, sacrifice, and transcendent love.” —M. Louisa Locke, author of the Victorian San Francisco Mystery series

“With plenty of action and characters you can really root for, Call to Juno is a perfect, wholly satisfying conclusion to Elisabeth Storrs’s trilogy. A Tale of Ancient Rome is one of the best ancient-historical series I’ve read in years.” —Libbie Hawker, bestselling author of Tidewater, Daughter of Sand and Stone, and Mercer Girls

Call to Juno is a book for long, delicious savoring.” —Judith Starkston, author of Hand of Fire

“Storrs obviously did her homework in this meticulously researched series. The level of detail about everyday life in Rome and among the Etruscans is extraordinary.” —Faith L Justice, author of Hypatia: Her Life and Times

“[Storrs’s] characters seem true to their time, strongly rooted in the mores of their respective cultures as they strive to placate the gods and gain victory. The contrast between the colorful, sensual culture of the Etruscans and the more severe Roman society is well portrayed, immersing readers in this ancient struggle.” —Historical Novels Review, Editor’s Choice

From the Author

Naming my saga the "Tales of Ancient Rome" gives the impression that the novels are solely about Rome but I also wanted to introduce my readers to the world of the Etruscans. My curiosity was first piqued to learn about these people when I saw an Etruscan sarcophagus depicting a couple embracing for eternity. The casket was unusual because, in this period of history, women were rarely commemorated in funerary art let alone a couple depicted in such a pose of affection. The image of the lovers remained with me. What kind of culture exalted marital fidelity while showing such an openly sensuous connection? What ancient society revered women as much as men? Discovering the answer led me to the decadent and mystical Etruscan civilization and the little known story of the ten year war between Rome and the city of Veii.

The three books in the saga tell the tale of this siege but I have endeavored to write each novel as a standalone to enable readers to access the story without needing to read them in order. The Wedding Shroud describes the journey of Roman Caecilia, the treaty bride sent to Veii to marry an enemy Etruscan nobleman, Vel Mastarna. In The Golden Dice, the characters of Pinna, a Roman tomb whore, and Semni an Etruscan servant girl, are introduced to give fresh perspectives. In Call to Juno, the reader will follow the lives and loves of these three women in a desperate quest for survival in the final year of the war. I hope you'll want to learn who will withstand the treachery of both mortals and gods.
