In some respects I sightly agree with the above review that there is not enough about Cerealis but that is not the fault of the author there just is not enough in the sources. However I found the book to be a great roller coaster ride of the end of the julio-claudian dynasty and the Flavian dynasty. The coverage of the year of the four emperors was especially good. This author of this book and the others he has written manages the difficult task of bringing ancient history to life In the fine balance of being detailed enough to interest people like my self who read a lot of ancient history but still keep it interesting and not to scholarly. Looking forward to his next book
