5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent start!, 4 Aug. 2011

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tribune of Rome (Vespasian) (Hardcover)
If you haven't read this one yet then I urge you to go right ahead and do so. Worried that it'll be yet another also-ran behind the likes of Scarrow? Don't be. It's up there with the best of them and, to be honest, better than most. There's no room for complacency in such a cut-throat [sic] genre and Fabbri has started something here. Helped by his choice of hero, the redoubtable Vespasian who many will have met [and probably liked] in some of the earlier Scarrow novels, this is one series I'm looking forward to unlike some others who I feel are destined to fall by the wayside despite heavy pushing by publishers. Vespasian's early life, first love, first experiences with the legions, first taste of political in-fighting and duplicity, it's all there. And he has [of course] to have the statutory sidekick who'll watch his back through thick and thin like good old Patrick Harper. Well-written with many touches of humour [the dialogue between Vespasian's grandmother and her 'slave' is well done and genuinely funny]. I enjoyed it very much and heartily recommend it.
