it was amazing

The world of Roma Nova comes alive in this wonderful compilation of short stories. It takes an exceptional author to combine the ancient world, in this case - Rome - and the modern, into a cohesive and believable story set in the modern era, but Morton achieves this brilliantly. One reason I believe she does this so well, is that she really knows Roman history, not only it's military might, but the arts and social structure in general. Combined with this knowledge and exceptional writing, and the country of Roma Nova, set in a place where the Roman legions once ruled, becomes a place you can imagine yourself in. Like her earlier novels, the writing is fast paced and the plots well thought out. What I particularly enjoyed about Roma Nova Extra, was the added background into the people and the country of Roma Nova. Vignettes are so masterfully worked, that even the sculptures take on a life of their own. Highly recommended.
