A Bit of A Disappointment,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Soldier of Rome: Heir to Rebellion: Book Three of The Artorian Chronicles (Paperback)
It's the third outing for Mr Mace and his series "Soldier of Rome" and having enjoyed the first two, I know the editing was poor and the spelling a victim of F7 spellchecker but Mr Mace's obvious passion for the period and his Knowledge of the Roman Military carried it for me. However this third outing that touches on Murder and Political Intrigue fell flat - this is dangerous waters for a writer as so many others do it and do it better Davies,Sidebottom and Graves to drop a few names. Mr Mace's plot and it's time line were muddled and too much reliance and the Sergeants sexual exploits with oft mentioned "Deviant Behaviour" what this behaviour takes the form of we are not told, however the disturbing image of our hero swishing about in a Ladies summer frock springs to mind.
It's transparent that this series includes if not ends at a carpenter from Judea being nailed to cross by our hero ( who gets lots of practice in this novel ) just hope the next instalment is a better effort than this.
