The Empress

By (author) Clothier, Meg

Constantinople, 1179 - Princess Agnes of France is thirteen when she marries the heir to Byzantium, an empire unmatched in wealth, power - and glamour. But once she sets foot in the Queen of Cities, a decadent world where dazzling luxury masks unspeakable cruelty, she realises that her husband is a deluded mother's boy with mighty enemies and treacherous allies. Welcome to the City - As emperors rise and fall, Agnes learns to play the City's game - until she falls for a handsome rebel and finds that love is the most perilous game of all. Glittering parties in marble palaces soon give way to bloody revolution, shipwreck and exile and Agnes discovers there is no limit to what she will do to survive. A world in flames - But only when crusading knights from her homeland attack the City, does she finally understand what is truly worth fighting for.
