Altimari has a very readable style. The book is character driven although there is a reasonable but simple story line.
The historical detail is accurate and plentiful, managing to conjure up the era but in a contemporary way.
I have read another book in this series which is just as good. Also a book called Apacheria which has a very similar central character only he is a US Cavalry Officer in the time of the Apache wars rather than a Roman Centurion.
All his books are very positive about soldiers and their noble qualities which you may or may not be sympathetic to.
With a delicate hand, Altimari has created an exiting novel where the reader can exercise all the senses brought alive thru words. Not only that, the dialogue and banter is as it would be in a tight knit military unit. Well worth the price.
I can only hope that Mr Altimari does not allow Centurion Rufio, Flavia , et al to hang up their weapons in Gaul. No doubt there are prequels and sequels hovering out there . . . . But please, no more mythical creatures . . . Centaurs. . . . really ?
