In the diaphanous mists, Gull sees the world crumbling in fire - the very pillars of civilization toppling with every battlecry. Through the carnage, she sees nine black ships bearing the revenants - the last of her people who are in desperate need for an oracle, the guiding hand of divinity to lead them to safety in a new land. Gull readily dons her veil and emerges as Lady Pythia, the goddess of death's handmaiden. From the abundant groves of Cyprus to the heady shores of hedonistic Egypt, she must chart a course for their ancestral homeland and keep the band together. Together with Prince Aeneas, she traverses the luminous world of the ancient Mediterranean in a vivid retelling of Virgil's Aenead that explores the themes of faith, family, and loyalty in a brilliant piece of historical fiction for adult readers.
