The coming of the king. Saulos Herodion, cousin to the king of Judaea, did not have the healthiest of feet
The coming of the king. For Alasdair, with love. The Fates guide he who will. He who won’t, they drag. Saulos Herodion, cousin to the king of Judaea, did not have the healthiest of feet. He had lost all the skin of his right sole and half the meat of the heel in Rome’s fire and for the first full year of his time in the desert, he had not been able to place his foot to the sand without screaming. Then, sometime in the winter of the second year – such winters as they had here – news of Seneca’s death had reached him.

It certainly will be hard to beat. The series really started way back with the name Manda Scott (not . Scott) and the book Boudica: Dreaming the Eagle.
By scent she knew him, by the subtle changes of his fear; he was Saulos, and he knew that she was coming.
By scent she knew him, by the subtle changes of his fear; he was Saulos, and he knew that she was coming own a darkened alley. Or perhaps it was a fissure in some distant mountain; the part that knew she was Hypatia, and so knew that she was dreaming, could not tell where she was, except that the air smelled of new rainwater and man-urine together, and someone, or something, whispered in a tongue she did not know. The air was tactile, teasing, feeding her facts.
