If you enjoyed Fabbri's first Vespasian book, as I did, you won't be disappointed with this one. Cracking read with a fluid style which I find very appealing. Perhaps a bit more gruesome than the first and with Caligula around perhaps it's not one for your maiden aunt. Lots of action but perhaps in places the political shenanigans in Rome do bog you down a bit. However, I look forward to finding out what becomes of Antonia who is clearly not a lady to be crossed! I'm sure I could look her up but somehow I'd rather not! One thing - if anyone to do with the publishers reads this, do something about your proof reading which in places is shocking.
