The Mosaic books, Sailing to Sarantium book 1, was my first GGK book and took me into a new world looking at mosaics in a different way, the writing is still the best I've ever read. I fell in love with the hero and was happy and hurt when he was. Recommend all GGK's books.
The story concerns Crispin a mosaicist who is summoned to Sarantium by his Emperor to decorate the greatest dome in the ancient world built in honour of their God of Gods Jad the God of the Sun. Along with Crispin's world you have Court intrigue, political skulduggery and the rivalry between the racing teams. There are many twists and turns along the way that all add up to a memorable read that I wouldn't hesitate in recommending to anyone that likes a story with a difference. This is not the end of the story, however, the sequel being Lord of Emperors which I will review under that name.
