This ended as I suppose it had to, in tragic fashion. Romulus and Tarquinias return to a Rome in turmoil. Caesar is taking over. Romulus kills a rhinoceros in the arena. Fabiola becomes a somewhat evil person, though her motivations make good sense. This is fiction of course, but based closely on true events. Odd that the death of Julius Caesar, who'd broken every law of the democracy to become a dictator marked the end of the Roman Republic. He was an impressive person (understatement intentional). You'd think it would be the other way around, that killing a dictator would help. Maybe this is the natural path of things. There are many details of the last days of the Republic that mirror our present day problems, and of other dominant countries in history. Oh well, I am far from the first to find it a confusing but compelling situation. Excellent series from BK. I will pick up the other books he's done.
