Tessa is a courtesan or high class prostitute longing for freedom. When her master dies, she uses his misfortune to create a new life for herself.
T.L. Higley is a very good writer, but this book didn't hold my attention. The one thing I missed in his book was the sense of location. As I read another of her books, Petra: City of Stone, I was there at that location and could see, smell, and feel the locality. I also couldn't identify with the main characters.
Well written, but not the type of book that draws me in, and a disappointment.
I received an electronic version of this book through the "bookSneeze" program.
