Can I have the next set of scrolls, please?
These scrolls tell the story of the life of Quintus Setorius, who was a Roman statesman and general during the time of 102 to 72 B.C. This particular book focuses on his early political career that ultimately led to his joining of the Roman military and the base of building his military career. Based on true events, the book is a fantastic piece of historical fiction that I recommend to readers who enjoy the genre or love the world of Rome, such as I.
The writing is very detailed and may take some readers a few pages to get into, but once you get hooked it wraps up in no time. The character development of Setorius and Lucius are both very well done and believable throughout the book. Not a lot of scene is set within Rome itself; however, it is described very well on the battlefields. There is very little language throughout the book, which also made it easier to enjoy. I found myself enjoying the spark of romance between Setorius and Arrea. I really hope that it goes deeper in the future volumes. The only complaint that I have is that it ended with me wanting so much more. Can I have the next set of scrolls, please?
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
