The Unforgiven King
By L. M. Affrossman
The story of the woman, who stripped away the legend to reveal the man.
Cleopatra, Julius Caesar, Herod the Great, well-known names. But, hiding between the lines of history, are others waiting to tell their stories. Forgotten for millennia, Loshema, the slave who became royalty, charts the rise and fall of those around her, while following her own dangerous trajectory through the political intrigue of the courts of the first century BC.
This is a world full of passion, bloodshed, madness and treachery, and just for the briefest, most fleeting of moments, love.
