Additional Information

“An elegant, impeccably researched exploration of early Rome...Elisabeth Storrs weaves a wonderful tale!” —Kate Quinn, author of The Empress of Rome saga

Four unforgettable characters are tested during a war between Rome and Etruscan Veii.

Caecilia has long been torn between her birthplace of Rome and her adopted city of Veii. Yet faced with mounting danger to her husband, children, and Etruscan freedoms, will her call to destroy Rome succeed?

Pinna has clawed her way from prostitute to the concubine of the Roman general Camillus. Deeply in love, can she exert her own power to survive the threat of exposure by those who know her sordid past?

Semni, a servant, seeks forgiveness for a past betrayal. Will she redeem herself so she can marry the man she loves?

Marcus, a Roman tribune, is tormented by unrequited love for another soldier. Can he find strength to choose between his cousin Caecilia and his fidelity to Rome?

Who will overcome the treachery of mortals and gods?

Call to Juno is the third book in the Tales of Ancient Rome saga, which includes The Wedding Shroud and The Golden Dice.

All of the above and much more to be found in this concluding sequel to The Wedding Shroud and The Golden Dice. As remarkable for the juxtaposition of starkly contrasting cultures as for the poignant love story of Vel and Caecilia, the story finds Mastarna leading Etruscan Veii against the ambitious Roman general Camillus, each man a literary foil for his opponent. Appearing here to resume their particular stories are Roman Tribune Marcus, patrician Drusus and the Veiian hero Tarchon and arch villain Artile, Vel’s jealous brother. Storrs brings back her female protagonists to add a deeper perspective to events, former prostitute Pinna and her treasure trove of secrets holding two Roman generals and two Roman knights at bay. On the Veiian side, irrepressible Semni sets her sights on hitherto immovable bodyguard Arruns. And throughout, the clash of the irresistible force of the Roman legions and the immovable fortress of Veii are paralleled by the irresistible oppression of... Read more
I've been reading the Tales of Ancient Rome series from the first book, "The Wedding Shroud" and was eagerly awaiting this release. I was SO not disappointed! The research that goes into these books appeals to the amateur historian in me, but the detail and care with which she writes these characters has made me fall in love with them. Her writing this series also shed light for me on an ancient civilization I knew next to nothing about, and has made me hungry for more information about the Etruscans. This book was an emotional one for me, given that I'd immersed myself in these characters' world, and knew how history played out for these people, but I'm happy with the way she ended this story. Mrs. Storrs has made me a fan of her work through these books, and I'm looking forward to reading what's next!
I came upon this wonderful series by accident and have not spent a single evening without reading some part of this series since I began without reading at least a few pages before bed. The story is fascinating historically and human interest. Even my partner read all of the series, though at first (before beginning) he thought it maybe was going to be a set of romance novels. Storrs' has done a impeccable job at weaving love and honor into a historical fiction that I could not stop reading. I recommend trying this series of novels to really anyone as you will be lured in by the excellent writing, leaving any reader unable to stop at just one page! My only complaint is that I looked for more and all I can find is a series of short stories by Storrs, but Ill take what I can find and be thankful that this experience is was wonderful time spent learning about what might have been during this time in ancient history. This series is as thought provoking as it is eloquent!
