It began with an accident, as if Fate had a plan for Vergil Magus . . .
After his trials in the Very Rich City of Averno but before his crowning achievement of a certain magic mirror, the great sorcerer and alchemist finds himself on a journey nothing short of epic. Sure he is slated for death in Rome, Vergil seeks safety in the far reaches of the Empire—and finds a world teeming with wonders and magical oddities.
The “unhistoric” sea adventure is a deft mix of fantastic fact and fable, showcasing the author’s keen attention to the often forgotten connections between them.
BTW: I have no idea where this price came from, I've never seen anything like that before. Maybe Mortimer is moonlighting over at the Kindle section of Amazon
