The end of this tale, well it's not really an end, is it? Ms. Quinn leads us right into the next episode, which I for one will be getting to asap. 5 stars

"For Stephen, who in many ways—freckles, restlessness, short temper, loud snoring, left-handedness, dislike of horses, speed with a sword, impatience with superior officers, and that one muscle under the left shoulder blade that collects all your tension— is quite a lot like Vix."
Mistress of Rome left us with a sweet ending. Thea and Arius raised a great family on a mountaintop in the northern-most part of Britannia. And our dear, brash Vix has grown up with his own dreams to fulfill. And that's where EotSH takes us - a journey full of tribulations, love, and sacrifices.
MOR takes us through the rise and fall of Emperor Domitian, known for his cruelty and madness, while EofSH takes us through the rise and fall of the beloved Emperor Trajan. You could see the stark difference between the two Emperors - how they rule the empire, the Imperial politics that exists, the subjects and their love for their ruling Emperor. EotSH was an epic journey, taking us through the different battles specifically the Conquest of Dacia, and the War against Parthia.
I went into EotSH hoping for a sweet HEA for Vix and Sabina, had wanted the same devotion Arius had for Thea. I'm a sucker for the whole 'destiny' shebang, and it was aplenty in MOR. Their friendship began when they were just kids at their first gladiatorial game, and later when Sabina watched Vix's second gladiatorial battle when they're a little older, and when the then-Commander Trajan painted Vix's blood all over Sabina because fresh gladiator blood is supposedly able to cure epilepsia, and when they meet again when Sabina's 12 and she kissed Vix. I was expecting for them to get together, married and with kids. They did get together, but it ended at that. Both Vix and Sabina grew up to have different dreams of their own, although they are closely connected by their devotion for Trajan. As it is, a marriage between a patrician and pleb is uncommon. Regardless of it all, Vix and Sabina has a love-hate relationship. Even though they do not end up with each other, they will forever hold a special place in each other's heart.
EotSH is the third installment in the Rome series. I skipped Rome #2 cos I had wanted to continue with the story of Vix and Sabina. So you could consider doing that if you ever pick up the Rome series. I'm not sure if it's a trilogy but Kate ended EotSH with a hint of a follow-up novel. Because seriously, how could it end at that?!
Dear Kate Quinn, I really love your Rome series. I sincerely hope there will be a Rome #4! Can I request Rome #4 to feature Dinah and Chaya as the female warriors? Afterall, they are the grandchildren and children of ex-gladiators. I need some kick-ass female warriors! Thank you. Sincerely, a huge fan.
