Customer Review

on 8 December 2012
I've read both books in the trilogy so far. The narrator Titus Pullus (via a scribe) has a convincing no nonsense voice. There are no verbal pyrotechnics here, just a soldier recounting events. It works for me, if occasionally it's a little too businesslike. The author knows his (or her) history, in particular the exploits of Caesar and the events of the civil war. The dialogue is spare but convincing, unlike a number of better known authors writing for this period, who turn out bogus 'ave, hail Caesar, we hear and obey' type stuff . I do think this trilogy deserves to be better known and I can certainly recommend these books. Looking forward to the third.
