Waterstones Says

From the author of the bestselling Clytemnestra comes another intoxicating excursion into ancient history, as Casati reimagines the rise to power of the Assyrian empire's only female ruler, Semiramis,

Exclusive Edition - a Standard Edition is available here

Animated by historical research and rich with detail, this captivating tale charts the controversial life and rise to power of Semiramis, the only female ruler of the Assyrian Empire

Nothing about Semiramis's upbringing could have foretold her legacy or the power she would come to wield. A female ruler, once an orphan raised on the outskirts of an empire - certainly no one in Ancient Assyria would bend to her command willingly. This is the epic tale of a woman who knew if she wanted power, she would have to claim it. No one was coming to save her.

There are whispers of her fame in Mesopotamian myth- Semiramis was a queen, an ambitious warrior, a commander and builder whose reputation reaches the majestic proportions of Alexander the Great. Historical record, on the other hand, falls eerily quiet.

In her second novel, Costanza Casati brilliantly weaves myth and ancient history together to give Semiramis a voice, charting her captivating ascent to a throne no one promised her. The world Casati expertly builds is rich with dazzling detail and will transport her readers to the heat of the Assyrian Empire and a world long gone.
