Praise for Mistress of Rome
"So gripping, your hands are glued to the book, and so vivid it burns itself into your mind's eye and stays with you long after you turn the final page."--#1 New York Times bestselling author Diana Gabaldon "Stunning...a masterful storyteller...It is no mean feat to write a novel that is both literary and a page-turner."--New York Times bestselling author Margaret George "An intensely emotional spectacle...An exhilarating read."--New York Times bestselling author Kate Furnivall "Equal parts intrigue and drama, action and good old-fashioned storytelling."--John Shors, author of Beneath a Marble Sky "For sheer entertainment, drama, and page-turning storytelling, this tumultuous debut novel is well worth reading."--Library Journal "Quinn's command of first-century Rome is matched only by her involvement with her characters; all of them, historical and invented, are compelling."--Publishers Weekly
