A wonderful short story from Robert Fabbri, so engrossing and consuming that i lost sight of the fact it was a short story. Encompassed in this small tale are some of the best parts of his stunning Vespasian series. Once again we follow Magnus, the head of the crossroads brotherhood. This tale has it all, a spot of larceny, political manipulation, intrigue, corruption, power plays and the fun and games you get with a gang of tough lads in the Crossroads Brotherhood. Robert Fabbri as usual makes you laugh and wince with the actions of Magnus and his men, when i looked and saw the book was only 64 pages i was shocked it felt packed with as much as a 200 page book.
A must buy for fans of his work and also any historical fiction period.
