"I would add this author to some of the great historical writers such asConn Iggulden, Simon Scarrow and David Gemmell. The characters were describedin such a way that it was easy to picture them as if they were real and havelived in the past, the book flowed with an ease that any reader, novice toadvanced can enjoy and become fully immersed..." Goodreads:"... a very entertaining read; Haviaras has both a fluid writing style,and a good eye for historical detail, and explores in far more detail the faithof the average Roman than do most authors." Epinions:"Well written historical drama with an eye for detail... I can't wait forthe next book... Killing the Hydra. There is so much more misery andmischief to puzzle and vex our worthy Metellus."
