Two years after Emperor Augustus's bloody defeat of Mark Antony and Cleopatra, he triumphantly returns to Rome. To his only child, Julia, he brings an unlikely companion--Selene, the daughter of the conquered Egyptian queen and her lover. Under the watchful eye of Augustus's wife, Livia, Selene struggles to accept her new home among her parents' enemies. Bound together by kinship and spilled blood, these three women--Livia, Selene, and Julia--navigate the dangerous world of Rome's ruling elite, their every move a political strategy, their most intimate decisions in the emperor's hands. Always suppressing their own desires for the good of Rome, each must fulfill her role. For astute Livia, this means unwavering fidelity to her all-powerful husband; for sensual Julia, surrender to an arranged marriage and denial of her craving for love and the pleasures of the flesh; for orphaned Selene, choosing between loyalty to her family's killers and her wish for revenge. Can they survive Rome's deadly intrigues, or will they be swept away by the perilous currents of the world's most powerful empire?

“The dust roamed, and in its midst, the code ...” Thus begins the revelations of Occultus Liber, an epic tale of the journey of civilization through time and space. With its collective cast of extraordinary characters both mythological and real, the quest to discover the fate of planet Earth leads to a bizarre odyssey of Biblical proportions. Satire abounds as dozens of players join the chase to dismantle God and claim the world as their own in this “prophetic” novel.
