The Golden Dice: A Tale of Ancient Rome

By Elisabeth Storrs

Historical fiction, Romance, Literary fiction | Paperback, eBook


During a bitter siege between Rome and the Etruscan city of Veii, three women follow very different paths to survive. Caecilia, Roman born but Etruscan wed, forsakes Rome to return to her husband, Vel Mastarna, exposing herself to the enmity of his people while knowing the Romans will give her a traitor’s death should Veii ever fall. Semni, a reckless Etruscan servant in the House of Mastarna, embroils herself in schemes that threaten Caecilia’s son and Semni’s own chance for love. Pinna, a Roman prostitute living in destitution, uses coercion to gain the attention of Rome’s greatest general at the risk of betraying the soldier who safeguards her. Each woman struggles to protect herself and those whom she loves in the dark cycle of war. What must they do to challenge fate? And will they ever live in peace once again?



Elisabeth Storrs is an Australian author who graduated from University of Sydney in Arts Law, having studied Classics. Her curiosity piqued by an Etruscan sarcophagus depicting a couple embracing for eternity, she discovered the little known story of the struggle between Etruscan Veii and Republican Rome and the inspiration to write the Tales of Ancient Rome Saga.
