Ford Byzantine Empire Sforza the Vampire Duke marshals his forces for his long planned attack on Florence and Byzantium is on the march A mercenary the exiled heir to the Byzantine throne a young woman physician forced to flee Florence and a Wel. This is something of a genre crossing novel It falls under sword sorcery and Alternative History If you know the history of 15th Century Western Europe especially England than you ll get a kick out of the story I majored in History with a focus on European HistoryIt was fun to see how the author changed many things but kept others AH purists will take offense at how Ford breaks the rules but I wasn t bothered by it If you aren t very familiar with the late Middle AgesEarly Renaissance Ford does a good job explaining changes from actual history in the Afterword The novel moves along at a brisk pace and the writing is intelligent with both depth and pathos All in all I say give it a try You might like it
