I fell in love with how the author brings parts of Rome to life. I love Rome. It's enchanting. Ms.Quinn brought such life to my memory of the Forum and Circs Maximus and Palatine Hill. The way she wrote abut the vendors at the Forum was simple but made the memory of the ruins in my head spring to life-and I truly enjoyed the mental pictures.
The story is based a lot in fact, which I enjoyed.
As for the main characters some of them I liked, soe not so much. Not because they were villians (i love a great villain) but becauuse I thought that some parts were just not so believable.
all in all a fun and interesting romp through a time long ago in one of my most favorite cities.
