4.0 out of 5 stars Savage City, 2 July 2011
This review is from: Savage City (Paperback)
I enjoyed this book very much indeed but mostly for reasons I cannot divulge without giving away plot points. The final volume in the Romanitas trilogy is for the most part a deftly-written conclusion to the series. The plot engaged my interest from the start and jinked a little on its way to a tumultuous ending. There are multiple plot lines all of which are resolved, but maybe not always to please the reader and certainly not to give an empty-headed fan some cheap satisfaction. Nor do the characters act as crowd-pleasers. They have their lives to live on the page, distinct from the wishes of the reader.

I charged through at least half the book in a single, ill-advised, late-night sitting. You do want to know what happens next. You will care for the characters. I hope Sophia McDougall has more to write now and won't keep us waiting as long for her next book as we did for this one.

This is a four and a half star book. I took off half a star for some slight implausibilities in the otherwise excellent plot and Amazon won't let me give half a star, so four stars will have to suffice this time. More, please.
