I have enjoyed this whole series and have learned a great deal of Roman history while enjoying Gordianus and his friends and family. I have a considerable amount of empathy for Bethesda, who may not be able to read and has a different set of superstitions from the Romans but is a good and loving person, ready to do whatever is necessary for her family. The descriptions of Rome are incredibly clear and change with the changing events. You watch Caesar's temple to Venus go up, you sit in the stands (lucky Gordianus!) for the four triumphs and knowing how Caesar will die you watch for signs of the plot to emerge. Well, Cicero and Brutus chatted all through the procession but the dictator is still alive at the end of this one.
