's review

it was amazing

I am really enjoying this series! The detective (or "informer" as they are apparently called in ancient Rome) in this setting is a nice change. I am listening to the audiobooks and not only is the narrator excellent, but the descriptions of everything are vivid and captivating. I am usually impatient with those types of passages in books, but this author's use of words is very engaging.

The stories are a fun mix of adventure, mystery, and some romance. While the baudy Roman morals are evident, there has not been anything explicit. The stories are interwoven and will make more sense if read in order (I think, now being well into book 3), but everything is adequately introduced in each book to orient the new reader, while not boring the return reader.

This is the first series I've found that I am enjoying as much as I have liked the Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth Peters.
