Rhavas was a good, holy, and pious man-and the cousin of the Avtokrator. He would probably have become ecumenical patriarch of the Empire in the capital, Videssos the city . . . if his world had not suddenly and tragically fallen apart when the Empire of Videssos erupted into civil war and the Khamorth barbarians swarm over the borders.

Recommends it for: Those who like Turtledove's Videssos series.
This was a good book that builds upon Turtledove's great Videssos world. This is a look into the dark side of the religion and I found it a good read.
