Threads of an Empire by Simon Rudman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I was pretty impressed with this novel.
It should be right up your alley if you're interested in historical Carthage during its height and even more if you like magical elements in your history... including soothsayers and rather interesting demons (or demon-like) baddies.
There's a lot of war and empire building, too, so it should be just about perfect for all you epic-fantasy fans. :)
If I had any qualms about this, it's only that I've read a lot of epic fantasy and it feels very regular to me. Of course, that's rather the point, to enjoy plots where characters grow and get strong. :)
