3.0 out of 5 stars Too short!
I wanted more details! What happens at the end? The story just kind of trickles off without giving you more information. Was disappointed at how short the book was. That's the problem with e-books... you get no sense of spine size when you buy them!

This review is from: Anna of Byzantium (Hardcover)
Anna Comnena is a princess. She is her father's heiress to the throne. When Anna becomes Empress she will be in charge of the large Byzantine Empire. Her grandmother teaches her. But then her mother has a baby boy, called John. She hates him and swears that when she is the Empress she will have him put into exile and other nasty things. She does not know that her brother is eavesdropping on her and that he tells the Emperor, her father. The Emperor says to her that he cannot have her as an heir to the throne after what she has done, plotting against her brother. And now, John is the heir to the throne. Anna is furious and sets out to reclaim what is rightfully hers...
I liked this book because it was a nice long read and it almost takes you back in time to Anna's place in history and everyone is always doing something interesting. It was a great book!

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent read, 13 Jun. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Anna of Byzantium (Laurel-Leaf Books) (Mass Market Paperback)
A superb configuration of historical truth and imagination. The vivid tale allows one to experience the emotions on each page. The excellent writing style, though describing the events in detail, is fast-paced and interesting for a quick read. The novel provides a wonderful vision of the actual history, despite the facts being adapted somewhat, and is much more enthralling than a text.
