TARPEIA: Book Two in The First Vestals of Rome trilogy

Rome is a city on the edge.

A bold retelling of the legend of Tarpeia, a priestess destined to be swept up in the danger of Rome's earliest days, and whose name would give rise to the Rome's most dreaded site -- the Tarpeian Rock.

It is 753 BCE and the new city of Rome exists on the edge of a knife. The young King Romulus reels from the loss of his mother's counsel, turning to his father -- Mars, the god of war -- and his city's new chief Vestal, Tarpeia, to fill the void. The city is constantly at war. As bad, it is a city of men, set to die out within a generation.

Thus, the knife slips, setting into motion an infamous crime that will entangle Tarpeia and resound throughout Latium and beyond, pitting Rome against its enemies and allies alike, and showing the settlement by the Tiber, and its young king, what it will ultimately take to rule the world.

About The First Vestals of Rome trilogy:

Set in the 8th century BCE, The First Vestals of Rome is an action-packed trilogy that dramatizes the sensational, often perilous lives of three legendary women who gave rise to Rome's powerful order of Vestal Virgins. All of them central to the life of Romulus, Rome's founder, these tectonic women were fated to shape the history of the Eternal City as much as any Caesar who came after them.
