5.0 out of 5 stars Rome's Changing Fortunes, 17 Mar 2007
This review is from: Emperor: Time's Tapestry: 1 (Hardcover)
This is a book about the trials and tribulations of the Roman Empire. It tells the story of the Empire and it's ever expanding borders as each subsequent Emperor vows to bring even more land and conquered people under the yoke of Rome. Who can stand against the mightiest fighting force that the world has ever seen, the legions of Rome.

One of the far outpost of the Empire is Britain, a cold, damp island, where there is continual unrest and the legions have to be on there guard at all times. In one of the smoky, dark buildings the British call home, a woman is in the throes of childbirth. As the pain becomes worse she screams out some Latin words. The words are in a language the woman has never heard before, never mind spoken.

The words are scribbled down and it is only later it becomes clear that the woman has spoken a prophecy, a prophecy that foretells the death of an Emperor. A death that could change the fate of the Roman Empire and all of the future up until the present day . . .

The author has woven a wonderful tale of war and hate and the fortunes of Rome as they wax and then begin to wane. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, give me anything with Rome and the legions and I am in my element.
