it was amazing

** spoiler alert ** Hello Kate Quinn - you are my new favorite author.

Wow, I could not put this book down. I knew it was a good book when I had to get up at 1:00am to read it, and was still thinking about it after I put it down. I felt like I was living with Lepida, Thea, Domitan and Arius.

I feel like it was a little slow to start off, but it picked up the pace pretty fast after Lepida sold Thea to a whorehouse. It wasn't as jarring of a turn as in Daughters of Rome, when there was a slaughter bath. You definitely recognize that Ms. Quinn likes to put an intense turning point in the beginning of the book, but I still love it because after that turning point, all you want to do is keep reading.

I LOVED this book. Enough said.
