The High City by Cecelia Holland

It is the early years of the reign of Basil II, who became one most successful, and most feared, Byzantine emperors. But for now, Basil rules as a co-emperor with his brother Constantine, and makes war on a would-be usurper, Bardas Phokas, son of a General who Basil supplanted.Basils most trusted troops are foreign mercenaries, the Varangian guard hired from the North.nbsp; Rus and Norsemen, Viking raiders and wild horsemen from the steppes, they fall upon the elegant city of Constantinople like wolves on a garden party.nbsp; Among them is the wily young son of an Irish slave, who comes to the notice of the emperors wife. But being noticed by an angry emperor is not safe at all.
