Four Horses for Tishtry - Chelsea Quinn Yarbro
Despite the brief appearance of St. Germain at the end of this short novel, it is really straight historical fiction. Tishtry, a character from Blood Games, is the center of this novel. The book details her journey via performance in the Roman games.

The plot is pretty basic, but Yarbro steers clear of the standard over used cliches. She captures the time pretty way, and while making the horses stand out from each other, doesn't turn them into huge dogs. It is more of an adventure story than anything else, but it is, at times, a thrilling read.
