"I write because by writing i find beauty.
To speak about terror or human cruelty is
to seek a way for beauty and justice.
To write is to go against.
All my novels, historical or not, are the way:
From the soul to the soul."

A young girl, enslaved after her capture, manages to play a critical role, as a spy, in the liberation of Crete by Nikiforos Fokas from the Saracens. The novel brings to life a dark age (10th century AD), a period full of brutality, but also greatness and selfless sacrifice.

In parallel to the legend of Doxanio, the novel revives all that dark era of Byzantine history, a time full of cruelty, but also grandeur and self-sacrifice, meeting our times through other ways.
It is a historical novel.

A best selling novel.
