Publisher's Summary

During a bitter siege between Rome and the Etruscan city of Veii, three women follow different paths to survive.
Caecilia, Roman born but Etruscan wed, forsakes Rome to return to her husband, Vel Mastarna, exposing herself to the enmity of his people while knowing the Romans will give her a traitor's death if Veii falls. Semni, a reckless Etruscan servant in the House of Mastarna, embroils herself in schemes that threaten Caecilia's son and Semni's own chance for love. Pinna, a destitute Roman prostitute, uses coercion to gain the attention of Rome's greatest general at the risk of betraying Caecilia's cousin.
Each woman struggles to protect herself and those whom she loves in the dark cycle of war. What must they do to challenge Fate? And will they ever live in peace again?
The Golden Dice is the sequel to The Wedding Shroud. The third book in the A Tale of Ancient Rome series is Call to Juno.

Don’t let the first book deter you

I’ll be honest, I hated the narrater in the begging because it sounded like an American forcing a British accent, but after a while I got used to it. I love the story and how it was able to surprise me. Cecilia will grow on you. Not gonna lie, she’s very annoying in the first book. Watching her grow into a proud, confident character is very entertaining. I fell in love with Mastarna. I love his character very much, scars and all. If you want to know more about the ancient Etruscans, this is a great series....once you get passed the first book.

I didn't read the 1'st book

I didn't read the first book. I didn't know there was one. I did read several reviews on the first book and I must say they were very discouraging. I listened to book 2 straight through and enjoyed it immensely. I might just invest the $3.49 on the first one because I am sure there will be a third.
