a great read,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rome: The Coming of the King: Historical Fiction: Rome 2 (Kindle Edition)
I have read reviews that aren't too positive about this series (or indeed the Boudica series) but I would urge anyone to give them a try if they have an interest in novels with intrigue, excitement and pace. Not being a natural historian, these books plunge me into a world where I feel I get to experience, breathe in the smells of, hear the sounds of and begin to understand the complexities and culture of an astonishing period in history. It is really worth concentrating during the descriptive prose lest you lose the valuable layers in these novels. M C Scott does not waste a word. They are all there for a good reason. I thank the author for the research and the intricate detail. And now onto the third in the series...
