I was very pleasantly surprised by this book. I took it because I didn’t know what to read next. I thought it will be some shallow romance story, but I was wrong. This book is great! It has everything: interesting plot (constantly something happens, this book is full of events, the plot doesn’t drag on), great characters (I loved narration from different points of view here, you get to know a whole palette of amazing characters) and quality – it’s very important that the book is well written, and here the author obviously knew what she was doing. Ms. Quinn studied her material well before writing.
The result is a great book, with depth, that will entertain you and make you both sad and happy…
It’s a book about human destiny, fight for survival set in the time of Roman Empire.
