First time reading a book by this author Really enjoyed his writing He did a great job on portraying what Roman Britain and the Roman Empire might have been like and brought it alive for me His descriptions of the surroundings the character s motivations and the battles were very vivid and not rambling I also loved the device of using a Roman inspector to ferret out the story The novel s strongest points for me was the portrayal of the lives of Roman centurionscommanders and their motivations I also liked how he talked about some of their customs and beliefs The weakest part was probably the idealism of the underlying love story but it read like it would make a good movie because of itSPOILERIdealistic because the heroine just didn t seem to focus enough on what she d be losing by eventually going barbaric Sure doing your own housework might seem novel initially but I can t see someone from that background not missing the benefits of having someone pour a nice hot bath for her etc Nevermind the fact she d never get to talk to or see her parents or family ever again either Anyhow I will definitely check out by this author
