fast with believable characterisation. The series draws you in and leaves you needing to know what happens next,
I have read them all and look forward to more.
Would definitely recommend
Around a third of the book is padded out with the main character reminiscing about events from the first three books, another probably 20% of the book is basically the bible. This in its self while being annoying could have been forgiven. However the unnecessary detail the author goes into about the rape and execution of a 9 year old girl, an event that does not even take place anywhere near where the book is set! I have read several books set around the time of Sejus death and non of them go into this level of detail and they were set in Rome were it actually happens. I might have been able to let this one go if weren't for the excessive level of detail the author goes into about the process of crucifixion it could be claimed it is used to set the seen but the several pages over which it spans makes it seem more like the author is enjoying it.
The other major issue with this book is the way in the closing chapter the author chooses to push his religion down our throats, I know this to be his region as he thanks God for his writing ability in the foreword of the first book!
Oh and the book is still littered with typos! Optio keeps becoming Option. He also favours the use of very modern military language which might be common to him from his time in the forces but jars badly in the fights.
Riches characters are all well thought out and the stories are very well researched but I think that getting our hero mixed up with the life and death of Jesus was pushing ones luck a bit. That said I enjoyed the book and found it easy reading even though the outcome was (very) predictable. So 4 stars for good but not great.
I cannot praise the series enough.

Very good, but poor spelling was annoying. There is a difference between "principle" and "principal"!!Published 8 months ago by Roger Jenkins
Struggled to believe that characters were involved in the crucifixion. Artorius and others typified the distances travelled by the legions.Published 19 months ago by paul wrench
