This review is from: Fortune's Favourites (Masters of Rome) (Paperback)
I really love the history of Marius and Sulla and was looking for some good fiction. This is great for a student or fan of Roman history though I think you will need a basic understanding of Roman politics to understand it.
Although I loved to read it and would recommend the series, I found myself skipping great chunks of it and still being able to continue without a problem, so I think it could've been slimmed down. I think she has injected a lot of her research into the story, which is all well and good, but isn't essential to the narrative.
