5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling and Poignant, 19 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Sands of Carrhae (Ancient Rome Historical Fiction - A short story of Rome Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
This is a short piece yet it is powerful and involving nonetheless. The action moves between Poppaea and her child in Rome and her husband Marcus marching with the eagles into Parthia. To those of you who know what happened at Carhhae no more needs to be written and for those of you who are unaware I won't reveal the details - but the conclusion is a tragic event which marks both lives.

For a short story, the author, Joseph Hunley, is able to pack in a lot of emotion and depth and I really cared about both Poppaea and Marcus. The writing is assured and flows well and it gives you a flavour of ancient Rome without wearing its erudition on its sleeve. For those of you who like Roman fiction, I would thoroughly recommend this story and my only regret is that it is not longer. I look forward to more from this author and hope that he embarks on a full-length novel as soon as possible. I for one will read it.
