Through the twists and turns of Flavius' mission we encounter a Roman Britain as vivid as if the author had experienced it himself. Divided Empire was wonderfully researched and could quite easily have referred to modern town names for the readers' ease but, in keeping with the period, all towns were referred to by their Roman name. I could remember some Roman names for our towns and cities from my Latin lessons, but I had great fun looking up those that I couldn't remember. As his passion for Roman history shines out of every page, I could quite easily imagine Brian Kitchen thinking in Latin first; perhaps taking a trip to Eboracum rather than York.
I certainly found it very easy to get into the story as the mystery of Corellia is a brilliant hook. Who is she and why is she leaving a trail of bodies in her wake? Then there is the tension between the Christians and the Pagans and secret messages being passed back and forth, giving Flavius lots to contend with as he tries to uncover the truth about Corellia. It was, however, complicated at times when a lot of characters were introduced, so I sometimes found myself flicking back over the pages to remind myself who was who.
With such colourful characters, anybody who reads Divided Empire will never again say that history is boring! Full of backstabbing and debauchery, Divided Empire is such a fast-paced and highly entertaining read.
I received this e-book from the publisher, Endeavour Press, in exchange for an honest review as part of the Virtual Historical Festival.
What, on the face of it, appears to be a simple assignment, turns into a complicated nightmare, and Flavius must keep his wits if he is to escape with his life.
What a refreshing and compelling read. With likeable characters and an engaging plot, Divided Empire, is a wonderfully refreshing take on the last days of Roman Britain.
Kitchen's attention to detail is staggering. He has created a world that is not only fresh but as accurate as it possibly could be in the telling. It is obvious Kitchen has spent a great deal of time researching this fascinating period.
This book kept me guessing throughout. I was intrigued by the character of Corellia. She is a mysterious and intriguing woman, who has an interesting past and a somewhat precarious lifestyle! Flavius certainly met his match when he stumbled upon her!
Full of intrigue and suspense, Divided Empire is a sit-down and finish book. I look forward to reading more books by this author.
