Unlike some other reviewers, I think his treatment of early Christianity, and Paul in particular, made an interesting sub-plot. They would indeed have been seen by the authorities as a group of trouble makers - one amongst many - and dealt with accordingly.
Overall, an interesting read, and a good addition to the series. It did seem at times as though the author was filling time until he could get back to Vespasian's military career, which I suspect will follow in the next volume.
Well researched and excellent story-telling. A clever blend of fact and 'what might have happened' keeps the action rolling strong; a gret way to learn a little ancient history in a very non-dusty way.
My only slight criticism is that the plot slows to a crawl some times with the intricacies of who's doing what to whom and how, but that may be my boyish brain wanting to get stuck into some gruesomeness.
All in all the history seems to my layman's eye to be fairly well on track, but all said and done, I couldn't put it down and can't wait for the next installment.
Not a bad read just a bit complicated going back and reading a section now and again helps but not a fluent read.
