I purchased After and 61 AD on the same day and read through both from start to finish. The writing here reminded me more of Saying Goodbye to the Sun than 33Ad, and in a good way. The story takes off from page at a breakneck pace and does not slow down. Opening with the new character Baella we are quickly re-introduced to Taras, Theron, Ramah and High Council Herris before introducing us to Iceni Queen Boudicca and her daughters.

I appreciate how compact the time span of the story is here. The author chose an excellent time and place to put the characters and builds from a rushed pace to a nearly frantic one by the end of the book. You will feel the clock ticking away for everyone and they react as you would expect, changing from calm and collected to making snap decisions in order to achieve their goals as soon as possible to avoid the rising sun.

In most ways the book delivers and then some. If you wanted to see Taras adapt to his undead situation we do, if you wanted to see Theron continue his reign of terror and get a little payback of what he deserves, you certainly will see that here. But what certainly stuck out for me here was Baella and Ramah. Baella is certainly an interesting new character for the series which has been dominated by men. Neither a member nor servant of the Council nor a renegade who had no choice in being a Bachiyr she represents a new paradigm and depth to this universe. Ramah is particularly well handled here, while not fully fleshed out that is for the best... we are given just enough to start to understand him... but he is left enough in the dark to still maintain his unknown qualities. By the end of the book you not only know there is a rich, dark history AND future to these two but you will simply demand to know it!

I cannot recommend this series enough to anyone looking for a complicated vampire tale and very much look forward to future books.

61 AD is the sequel to 33 AD and readers don't necessarily have to have read 33 AD prior to this one (but you'll want to and you'll enjoy it!) -- the sequel does not disappoint and carries on the the latest story of the Bachiyr (vampires) in Roman times after the death of Jesus.

33 AD introduced the primary characters Taras, Theron, and Ramah, all ancient Bachiyr with a convoluted history and relationship -- mostly, they are enemies and are chasing each other through the ancient Roman lands. Not only does the author extend the story began in 33 AD, he introduces a new engaging storyline, along with the Iceni warrior queen and her daughters, who lay siege to Londonium as the background to to the main plot. The story also introduces even another intriguing character in Baella, an tremendously powerful ancient female vampire. Interestingly, 33 AD was virtually an all-male, testosterone laden group of characters, while in 61 AD, the warrior princesses have a strong presence.

The story of Taras and Theron chasing each other and running from the Council of 13 continues here, with a great storyline and wonderful plot intrigue -- it's reasonably paced, engaging and you'll want to keep reading. The Iceni attack on Londonium is nicely staged and makes a nice background interwoven with the Bachiyr machinations. The story concludes in a reasonable fasion but sets the stage for future novels -- and there is plenty of material to work with. This has become one of my favorite series and I can't wait for the next one!

Combining history with the religious contagion of Christianity that was rapidly spreading worldwide and threatening the lives of the Bachlyr, this book takes us to ancient Britain. Ruled by the Romans who the Iceni hate Taras , Theron and Ramah find themselves caught up within the battle of Londinium. But the chased have become the chased. With Taras as bait to lure in both Theron and Ramah. Who would do such a thing and why? who is powerful enough to go against the council of 13. Well, for those answers and more you just have to keep reading!

I loved the first two Bachiyr novels ("33 AD" and "Saying Goodbye To The Sun"). This one is the sequel to the first book, "33 AD". McAfee has created an alternative world of organized vampirism with some very interesting characters. I love the way he makes these fictional historical characters seem real. Lots of suspense, twists and turns. I've read tons of horror and action books in my life, some good, some so so, and some not so good. McAfee is a "for real" type of talent. I rate his first three vampire books as very good - highly recommended.

I really wanted to like this book because I liked 33 A.D. even though the story seemed a little ambitious to me. This is not the case here. The author fails at building a world and fleshing out the characters. You skim the surface of who they are what their motivations are and in a world being what it is at that time things just flowed way too conveniently. If anything the whole thing reads like a bad SyFy movie. You get glimpses of what could be a really good story, but aside from the concept? Pass. Also, the editing, or rather the LACK of editing in this book is staggering. Typos, bad wording, repetition, gaping plot holes (first Theron is OK with dropping bodies where he wants but a few chapters later he's oh so mindful of what he does with them and how he disposes of the evidence? ...When did that happen?!) make this into a skim book rather than something to keep in the library both paper and electronic.
