Favourite character(s) … Who else would this be but Titus. Well I guess Caesar is also a favourite. Don’t forget Cleo also.
Favourite location / setting ... Caesar while in Egypt. He ordered the people around telling them what he wanted and expected them to follow his orders. I can just see this. Walking around like he owned everything, when he was actually a guest.
Favourite scene …. Primus Pilus talking with Didius. This is so sad and moving. It reminds me of all the soldiers and all the wars throughout history. Sad, no one to take care of Didius if his leg is removed and no one by his side while his is dying.
Favourite quote … Didius telling Primus Pilus why he is broke.
“I decided to go straight. Turns out that I was a much better cheater than I am an honest gambler.”
Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author.
