4.0 out of 5 stars A ripping yarn, 9 Mar. 2014
This review is from: Legionnaire (Exiles of Arcadia) (Kindle Edition)
A good novelist creates ongoing plot complications and then feeds you just the right amount of information to get you turning the pages as quickly as you can to find out what happens next. Gawley does a pretty good job of this. The plot is varied and interesting. I had thought at first that the novel was set in ancient Rome, but discovered fairly quickly that while borrowing enough cultural traits from the Romans to give the novel the flavour of ancient Rome, Gawley has constructed an independent story which does not depend on any particular episode of Roman history.

Beyond the plot, Primus, the main character is intriguing and complex, the language is rich and evocative and the novel is overall a very enjoyable read. The only problem is that the plot is cut off suddenly and the reader must await the sequel. If this annoys you, I would advise that you wait for the next in the series to come out before reading this one.
