Asapasia, royal Byzantine princess and lady in waiting to the new bride of Otto II, the soon-to-be Holy Roman Emperor, is a tenth-century feminist and a bright light in the Dark Ages. She is a powerful central character who does what may seem impossible, namely making a story about life in tenth-century Germany interesting. Author Judith Tarr is a respected historian who writes well, knows her era and keeps listeners intriqued with revolutions, political maneuvering, and illicit sex. Anna Fields narrates the story adequately and does a good job conveying the personalities of the many characters though accent and gender differences cause her difficulties.
