Description
Born in the royal chamber, Anna Comnena has every reason to feel entitled. She's a princess, her father's firstborn and chosen successor. Someday she'll sit on the throne and rule the vast Byzantine Empire. So decrees her father, and so Anna expects. The birth of a baby brother doesn't perturb her. Nor do the "barbarians" from foreign lands, who think only a son should ascend to power. Anna is as dismissive of them as are her father and his most trusted advisor -- his mother, a manipulative woman with whom Anna studies the art of diplomacy.

Anna relishes her lessons, proving adept at checkmating opponents in swift moves of mental chess. But as she matures, her arrogance and intelligence threaten her grandmother. Anna will be no one's puppet. Almost overnight, Anna sees her dreams of power wrenched from her and bestowed on her little brother. Bitter at the betrayal, Anna waits to avenge herself, and to seize what is rightfully hers.
