Twilight Empress

“…the book is an addictive, fun, fast read. Justice chooses her key moments wisely, weaving a decades-long narrative about Placidia’s layered life as she rises to eventual leadership.”

—Kirkus Reviews

Dawn Empress

“Fast-paced and engaging, one of those novels that will keep fans of historical novels reading through the night.”


—Readers’ Favorite

Sword of the Gladiatrix

— The Historical Novel Society

Selene of Alexandria

“Readers will be captivated. Fans of Gillian Bradshaw’s classic The Beacon at Alexandria may especially enjoy Selene and find a promising new historical novelist who shares the same gift for wonderfully researched, vividly evoked, good old-fashioned storytelling.”
