SPFBO9

Claire built a device to fold space and time. It had a flaw... ¬† When the smoke clears,¬†she finds herself halfway across the world, thousands of years in the past, and no device in sight. ¬† In bronze-age Florence, war has lasted for generations.¬†All Claire wants to do is get home, but she'll need help from the locals. She wins an ally in Marcus Diophantus, a pickpocket turned soldier turned general, who hopes to turn into something more than just her champion. Together, they broker peace between Florence and its enemy. ¬† If Marcus is going to help Claire, he'll have to survive.¬†Peace has upset the balance of power in the capital city. The king stands increasingly alone against: the Constantines, a commercial enterprise as much as a clan, who aim to profit from peace as they have from war -- the warrior nobles, descended from the founders of Florence and quick to turn against a weak throne - and Reburrus, the high priest of Florence, convinced Claire answers to hostile foreign gods. As the city comes to a boil, Claire and Marcus - and Marcus's formidable army - will have to decide where their allegiance lies. ¬† Claire becomes a reluctant participant in a savage campaign.¬†While Marcus leads the battles, she tries to gain control of the unimaginably powerful Ctesiph√īn - a ghost tower in the heart of Florence, shrouded in magic and myth.
