Charmian is handmaiden to Cleopatra. She is also an oracle, gifted with ancient memories that may hold the key to preserving Egypt. Through blood and fire, war and peace, love and death, she will face a desperate struggle that will remake the future of the world. Shortlisted for the Locus Best First Novel Award, included in The Amazon Editors' Top Ten List in Science Fiction and Fantasy for 2008 and the Locus Recommended Reading List, with starred reviews in Publishers Weekly and Kirkus Reviews, Jo Graham is one of the most exciting new voices to come out of historical fantasy in recent years.

I liked most of everything in this. How it paints Octavian as the bad guy when Augustus is known as the Pax Romana guy. It's fitting from the Numinous World point of view that his legacy (Tiberus, Caligula, Nero) kinda destroys Rome. Charmain, Iras, Cleopatra are all strong women, all Companions in that always evolving world. One of the fun things in reading these books is figuring out who was who and who will be who. I did shed tears at the end.
