Summary
  • Eighteen-year-old Gordianus embarks on a quest in politically restless 92 B.C. to see the world's Seven Wonders accompanied by a celebrated poet who fakes his own death to travel under an assumed identity
  • A prequel to the best-selling Roma Sub Rosa series traces 18-year-old Gordianus's journey to the Seven Wonders of the World, each of which pose a mystery that challenges his budding powers of deduction and the tenacity of celebrated poet Antipater of Sidon, who fakes his death to accompany young Gordianus
  • The year is 92 B.C. Traveling the world for the first time, Gordianus discovers that amorous exploration goes hand-in-hand with crime-solving. The mysteries of love are the true wonders of the world, and at the end of the journey, an Eighth Wonder awaits him in Alexandria
