I've enjoyed everything I've read from Camilla Monk so far and that says a lot since she doesn't have descriptive rumpy pumpy in her books. Can't wait to see what new twist she has put on the Roman Empire. Let's hope there's some of this:

Silverlegs is probably my most personal work yet, so I'm not sure what to put in this review that you guys might find even remotely funny. Here's a Life of Brian gif anyway.



I am an Ancient Rome nerd, an atheist who reads obsessively about religion, and, some might say a "survivor" (although I never liked that term). To me, Silverlegs is a point in my literary career where these three lines converge.

It is, first and foremost, 380 pages of Ancient-Rome-themed dark/epic/low fantasy porn. If you qu

I am a very big fan of Ms. Monk and I love her Spotless series so much! However, this is so not my thing! Therefore I will not rate it at all.

NB: there is a trigger warning by the author and yes, I should have listened. The story is written as amazingly as ever, but it has very graphic scenes of violence.

This author is SO gifted with her story telling. I read an early version of this book. I was enthralled with her story telling. I look forward to the finished version as well as subsequent books. An amazing read.

Before she was Silverlegs, she was a girl living on a farm. When events forced her to run away or else be punished severely for her actions, she was mistaken for a boy and taken by mercenaries to fight for them. Slowly, she becomes Silverlegs, but being the best at what she does doesn’t make her life as simple as she imagined.
I was constantly appalled by the crass language used—I never got used to it. With so much disturba

This book took me a while to get into but once I was in I was truly in. I was invested in the main character and all of their battles; emotional and physical.

It’s not often that you find a book based on war and battle with a heroine. Silverlegs is strong and brave, she is fearless and capable.

Silverlegs hides in plain sight and does a fantastic job at doing so.

The training leading to war, the twists and turns of the storyline. The brutal execution of some beloved characters; this book had me

When this book popped up to read I jumped on it. This cover is just so amazing and dark. However, this one was a little to dark for me. I don't generally read what books are about but this one I wished I had. I ended up deciding that this one just was not for me. It's very very dark and really I think it would be better suited for New Adult readers as things that happened were a little much for the ya age group.

Suited for those 18+

Well, apparently CM can write just any ol' damn thing she wants.
Doesn't matter what it's about, she's gonna go at it hard and come away the winner.
Except, I do notice that she hasn't written anything with ME as the main character. When she does, she'll be complete in her soul. I'm just sure of it!

Now.. dang. I have to wait for the next book. Again.
CRAP! (My teeth are gritted so hard right now)

Where's my coffee..

A departure from the light-hearted Spotless series, this might not be your jam if you’re expecting something similar in tone. There is still some humour to be found but overall this story is much darker. Set in a fantastical world based on the Roman Empire, this is a violent, gory, and action-packed read. I can’t wait for the next instalment!
