It was a good read but what can I say?
The characters evolved? only one did I felt.
Not really much has changed, there was one or two things I sort of expected but was surprised none the less.
Obviously it's just a continuation of the series but I feel these books are lacking, well, a lot. I know the main plot is Rome obliteration but c'mon, put a little more into the story. There was lack love, betrayal, anything to make the book stand out. I liked it but overall I give it three starts GENEROUSLY because of the character Julius Valerius, cos he in fact made the book a good read. Like it's predecessor, J.V. was the only reason a gave it a couple of extra stars in the review.
Overall most the characters are mundane, there's a main plot but there is nothing else in between and it could be a lot better.
