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.
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!
