My Sister's Song by Gail Carriger

My Sister's Song by Gail Carriger

This is a short story written back in the day by the profilic Parasol Protectorate writer (how's that for alliteration).

Set in ancient Roman times, it tells the tale of a warrior woman who comes up with an ingenious way of defending her village from the invading Roman legion.

I liked it very much and highly recommend it!

Disclaimer: I lived in Rome and studied there for a semester, so I'm partial to all things Roman. But if you enjoy ancient Rome, I think you'll enjoy this tale.
