If I were to offer constructive criticism it would be to minimise the use of the perhaps hackneyed device - "Little did I know that this would be the last time I would set eyes on ........".
The attention to detail in the scene setting was superb, making me feel as though I really was in Ancient Rome and experiencing everything for myself. It is obvious that the author clearly loves his subject and has done a lot of research into it, and this is interspersed throughout the novel to drive the story line forward.
The battle scenes are well thought out, and unlike other novels in this genre, they don't consume the book, but rather add flavour to it with the plot still driving forward.
Worth a read for those looking for a lightweight, first person view of this period or the Roman Empire in general.
