Unabridged Chick

I'm Audra, a 30-something married lesbian. I love interesting heroines, gorgeous prose, place as character, and the occasional werewolf.
Roma: The Novel of Ancient Rome  - Steven Saylor Dense but engrossing historical novel set in Rome. The ancient era isn't my favorite but Saylor is clearly a historian who knows his stuff, and the novel is packed with details. This is the kind of book that makes me want to tour Rome -- I know I'd see everything with a new eye.
