Product Description

About the Author

Born in Edmonds, Washington, author James Mace is currently a resident of Meridian, Idaho. He enlisted in the United States Air Force out of high school; three years later transferring over to the U.S. Army. After a career as a Soldier that included deploying to Iraq, in 2011 he left his full-time position with the Army National Guard to devote himself to writing. His well received series, "Soldier of Rome - The Artorian Chronicles," is a perennial best-seller in ancient history on Amazon. In his latest endeavors, he also branched into writing about the Napoleonic Wars. After he finishes the last of The Artorian Chronicles in 2013, he looks to expand into a series about the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879.

I have read the other three books and while they are not the greatest historical fiction they were readable enough, probably 3 star books but this book was awful.

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.

I have read 4 of the 5 Soldier of Rome books and while I would not call them great pieces of literature I did enjoy reading them. This latest in the series was no exception although I think it is perhaps the weakest of the series.

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.

Having read the earlier books in this series I decided not to buy or read any more. Unfortunately when this book came out I forgot. I bought it and within a few pages I remembered! I enjoy reading books, fiction or nonfiction, whose action is based in ancient Rome. This book left me with a feeling of a lack of character development other than at a very superficial level and a trivial plot. The writing style is, to my mind, very amateurish, almost childish, and becomes very annoying. Not a book I would recommend and I hope to remember why when the next Artorian chronicle is published.

Another exciting read in this excellent series - as long as you can deal with American English, and some out-of-place modern terms creeping in. This, and a few spelling and grammar errors, does not detract from the gripping pace of the narrative, and both the events and the detailed personal interactions are very well handled. The hero ends up with the invasion of Britain, so I shall certainly buy the sixth and last book in this cracking series.

A book which you have a job putting it down. On the one hand you want to keep on reading and on the other you think - slow down you will run out of his books to read in the future. I have now read six of the authors series - Soldier of Rome and wondering what to read next.
I cannot praise the series enough.

After reading and thoroughly enjoying the Legion series featuring Macro and Cato by Simon Scarrow, I downloaded this novel with anticipation. Unfortunately, I found the storyline thin, and raised my eyebrows at some of the expressions used (1st. Century Judea ??). I don't think I will be downloading any more of this series.
