Robert Fabbri's fictional account of the life of Vespasion continues with episode five. Vespasion is in Britannia, gradually extending Roman control, either by negotiation or force. His brother is captured, and used as bait to draw Vespasian into a trap. The first half of the book deals with this storyline, and follows the adventures of the brothers; there is a fair amount of the supernatural here, with Druids, spirits and even early Christianity. I see from other reviews that some readers have found this a problem, but in a world where the natural and the supernatural were accepted parts of everyday life, i don't really see the issue. This is, after all, fiction.
The second part of the book sees Vespasian back in Rome, and heavily involved in the machinations of the Emperor's three powerful freedmen, and their battle to remove Messalina, the Empress. I still baulk at the depiction of Claudius in all current novels as a bumbling idiot, but it seems I am alone in this, so I will complain no more!
Overall, this is a worthy addition to the series. Although you know the outcome of the major historical events, the author does a good job of weaving them around Vespasian's story, and it is interesting to work out which of his actions are 'real' and which are part of the fiction. I think the author does well to make the two seamless. I shall be looking forward to the next episode.

I enjoy this series of books because you get to see the
development of Vespasian from a boy of sixteen to a grown man viewing Rome and those in power.
From idealistic to realising that was corrupt with everybody out for themselves.
