Summary

For 300 years it was believed Alexander the Great had no heir. The Roman armada descends on Alexandria. Friends flee, allies bicker, and foes multiply in the night. The fragile city-state teeters on the brink of annihilation. As the naval blockade looms and palace intrigue thickens, Heron must find the heir of Alexander the Great or nothing will stop the Romans from overrunning the wondrous city.

Good sequel to Fires of Alexandria

I really enjoyed Thomas K. Carpenter's Fires of Alexandria, as narrated by Elizabeth Klett, which is a steampunk novel about the real inventor Heron of Alexandria. This novel is the continuation of Heron's adventures, and develops the character of her niece Sepharia really well, too. This is also excellently read by Elizabeth Klett.
