  • "...[Lydias'] story will confirm Graham's place in the highest ranks of historical fantasists." --- Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

    "What does one say about an author who gets exponentially better with each book?  Graham's ability to bring history to life is truly remarkable. Readers will easily identify with the larger-than-life heroes from the past in this fast-paced read.  This will satisfy history buffs, Egyptophiles, and fantasy fans alike." --- Romantic Times (Top Pick!)

    "Charmian's shy hopes, failures and devotion to Cleopatra and Isis make her one of the most memorable "witnesses to history" to emerge from fantasy in quite some time." --- Publishers Weekly *Starred Review* on Hand of Isis

    "Graham makes her world come truly alive, as the best writers of historical romances have always done." --- Scifi.com on Black Ships
