Dawn Empress

Please join me in congratulating Faith Justice on the publication of her newest historical novel, Dawn Empress! I had the pleasure of designing the cover of this second book in her Theodosian Women trilogy, this one about Pulcheria. Here's the book description:

As Rome reels under barbarian assaults, a young girl must step up. After the Emperor’s unexpected death, ambitious men eye the Eastern Roman throne occupied by seven-year-old Theodosius II. His older sister Pulcheria faces a stark choice: she must find allies and take control of the Eastern court or doom the imperial children to a life of obscurity—or worse! Beloved by the people and respected by the Church, Pulcheria forges her own path to power. Can her piety and steely will protect her brother from military assassins, heretic bishops, scheming eunuchs and—most insidious of all—a beautiful, intelligent bride? Or will she lose all in the trying?

Dawn Empress tells Pulcheria’s little-known and remarkable story. Her accomplishments rival those of Elizabeth I and Catherine the Great as she sets the stage for the dawn of the Byzantine Empire.

Dawn Empress is available now in ebook and print formats on Amazon! Add it to your shelves on Goodreads, and check out Faith's website for the scoop on all of her historical fiction novels!
