    1. AWESOME. It's rare that a book about the Roman Empire doesn't manage to annoy me, but she manages the trick neatly by ageing up the empire to the present day - I might argue with certain aspects of its development, but it's very plausibly and thoroughly worked out. She uses all the writing no-nos (according to the current fashion, that is), like lots of adjectives and omniscient POV and so many characters it needs a dramatis personae (which I'm glad of, because I'd forgotten a lot from the first [...]


    2. I enjoyed Romanitas, the first book in this series, although I thought it wasn’t as good as it potentially could have been. “Rome Burning” shares many of the strengths and weaknesses of the first book in the series, although I think overall it is an improvement on the first book. What I liked most about the first book was the characterisation and this continues to be a strength of the sequel. I thought Una and Dama were the most intriguing characters in the first book and the second book d [...]


    3. Sad to say this book was even more disappointing than the first in the series. I was so looking forward to this series and still believe the concept is very exciting.However the writing is more suited to a Miss Green novel set in a little English village in the 1930s. The prose is beautiful and descriptive but so unsuitable for a geo-political thriller of such scope and imagination. Early in the book as dramatic events begin to unfold, we are treated to a scene of some pages in length describing [...]


    4. I thought the previous book 'Romanitas' was a decent debut novel, albeit a little uneven. The first half of 'Rome Burning' was of similar quality while the second half was excellent. So far, this series has been primarily character driven. I'm pleased to say that the returning characters were really brought to life in this book and a number of interesting new players were introduced. The book ended on a cliffhanger and finding myself thoroughly invested in the story I'll be looking to get my han [...]


    5. an excellent follow-up to Romanitas. the prose is less self-conscious and still very articulate, the plotting is smoother. Drusus is an excellent villain and there were a couple of nice misdirects.




    6. while the first book inspired me opposite feeling (great story, but too slow for my liking) I loved this one from the beginning till the end. I truly can't wait for the next book!
