I don't know how John Maddox Roberts manages to make his protagonist's xenophobia so good-natured and cheerful, but he does. Reading a book with Decius Metellus in it is like visiting with an old friend. I might want to scold him for his horrid behavior, but he makes me laugh and teaches me so long along the way.

Kris Decius' snark is what MAKES the series for me!

Stephanie Dray ABSOLUTELY, Kris!
