5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best in the Series- High Praise Indeed!, 20 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: S.P.Q.R. Vii: The Tribune's Curse (Paperback)
This is a brilliant book and a great read. If you're a fan of Decius Caecilius Metellus the Younger you are in for a treat.
Roberts weaves his tail of Decius' climb up the greasy pole of Roman politics with this latest installment.
Lots of Roman characters of the time are there like Pompey, Cato and Crassus plus the presence of Caesar is never far away.
Politics is at the heart of everything in Rome and we are privileged to follow in Decius' footfalls as he travels in search of the answer to the mystery around Roma's alleys and streets.
beliefs and rituals abound and this is a magnificent fore runner to the River Gods vengeance where a few hints of our hero's Herculean tasks as aedile the next year.
We learn of the religion that was the backbone of Roman Society and this is Roberts genius to weave such a tapestry that we are drawn into the book and story with the same delight and anticipation of a chocoholic with an empty stomach and a new box of deluxe chocolates!

It is that good a book.
