I wanted more....
Reviewed in the United States on December 27, 2019
I was impressed with the research and the detail by the author in creating this novel. However, I was anticipating more of the details of the lives of Justinian as well as Theodora. That didn't happen because most of the novel was dedicated to Theodora's prior life when, in fact, the two characters together created much more. If you start the book with that in mind, you won't be disappointed.
