Her name was Vitatrix, first empress of Rome. You won't see her in any history books, or hear of her in any ballad or song. She isn't even in any myth or legend we recall today. Her memory erased from mankind, because she was a woman. Long ago Rome's emperor has died with out a son. His cousin a roman senator ascends the throne with out a legitimate heir, or so everyone believes. Fear starts to grip the citizens of Rome as threats arise from every corner of the empire. And even a plot brews from within. In the city of Clusium a daughter that was born to the new roman emperor by his wife was sent away in order to protect her from the possible rage and discrimination of her own family. All because she was born a girl. In a world where the patriarchal system rules can this sole heir secure her rightful place? Or will her gender pull her down? Raised by the midwife that helped bring her into the world, a young Trix finds out who she truly is. She has to return to a family she has never known and save the Roman Empire from anarchy as the people fear the end of a dynasty. She must fight a corrupt senator, a secret society, and her own fears of the uncertain. Together with her best friend Hector she must learn that not everyone can be trusted. Not all stories have a happy ever after. Will this one?
