A worthy ending to the series.
on 13 November 2014
This is, as yet, the last volume in the series. The author has now gone backwards, and started writing prequels which tell of Gordianus' early life before we first met him. In my view, it is not quite up to the standards of the earlier books. The story has twists and turns, as usual, but seems a bit forced, a bit thin. In places, it has long descriptions of each of Caeser's triumphs, which to me seemed a bit too much like padding without adding anything to the story; something which is unlike Saylor. I still found it a good read, just not quite as good as many of the other books.
I am now looking forward to starting on the prequels.
