A fantastically fast-paced book that I just could not put down! Quinn conjures such a vibrant and vivid picture of the Roman Empire through fist-person character narratives that you'll literally feel like you've been transported to another era. One of the most powerfully interesting, emotionally turbulent and breathtakingly original books I have ever read. There is nothing dull about this historical novel! I get bored of books so easily I just can't believe how this author made me read every page in detail - I can't wait for her next book I think 'Daughters of Rome' out next year.
