This story of ambition, love, and political intrigue brings to life colorful characters and an exotic time and place. In A.D. 412 Alexandria, a city torn by religious and political strife, Selene struggles to achieve her dream of becoming a physician. Hypatia, the famed Lady Philosopher and the Augustal Prefect Orestes offer their patronage and protection. But will it be enough to save Selene from murderous riots, the machinations of a charismatic bishop and–most dangerous of all–her own impulsive nature?
