Publisher Description

She lives a life of ambition, power, and intrigue she didn’t seek, but can’t refuse.

Daughter of Rome, Placidia expects to do her duty to God and country, marry appropriately, and raise imperial heirs. But in AD 410, the city of Rome falls to the Goths, and she must save the tottering Roman Empire from the incompetent hands of her brother. She marries once for love and once for duty, experiencing heartbreaking loss in both.

Empress Placidia must outwit scheming generals and defeat usurpers to win the devotion of her people and secure the throne for her young son. It’s not just the enemies within that threaten her rule. Vandals invade the African provinces and Attila masses his Huns on her border. But it’s the knife in the hands of those closest that cuts the deepest. Will a confrontation with her rebellious children be the battle she can’t survive?

Twilight Empress is the exciting first novel of the Theodosian Women series by Faith L. Justice featuring the remarkable women who reigned during the Roman Empire’s twilight years. Don’t miss this “addictive read” (Kirkus Reviews); “filled with romance, political intrigue, and drama that will keep you turning the pages.” (History from a Woman’s Perspective)
