The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation, Volume II: The Kingdom on the Waves.
October 14, 2008.
Okay, a few more words. You may remember that I have a deep and abiding love for Volume I: The Pox Party. Not only do I think it was one of the most finely written pieces of fiction (not just Ya fiction – fiction in general) to pass in front of my eyeballs, I adored the period language and the history and the character of Octavian himself. I’ve been keeping my ears perked ever since I finished it for the second volume. I want it in my hands now. Or at least as soon as I’ve had a chance to reread the first one.
If you haven’t read The Pox Party yet, and like smart historical fiction and fab language, what are you waiting for?
