Editorial Reviews

Review

"Morgan has written a book that is highly original and beautifully executed. The balance between the Roman world and the modern world is maintained with skill and adroitness, and the narrative is deftly woven through both of these time periods, never faltering or losing momentum.

The Last Stoic is a fascinating, parallel look at two societies that are not, as it turns out, as different or distinct as one might think."

- Helen Humphreys


"Sometimes the axiom that history repeats itself it can seem like deja vu, so startling are the similarities. That's what sent Morgan Wade on his way to creating his first novel, The Last Stoic, which shows the parallels between the ancient Roman Empire and former president George Bush's United States.

Wade found the parallels so eerily similar that he decided to tell a story that alternates between the two time periods. A chapter will end in ancient Rome but the story will be picked up next in modern times. The plot is about a young man who comes to the big city with bright prospects, but whom another young man grows to hate and plots his downfall. The plotting of the other eventually succeeds and our hero is false imprisoned and tortured by an intolerant government. What keeps him going is reading from The Meditations, written by the founder of stoicism and one of Rome's last great emperors Marcus Aurelius."

- Greg Burliuk, Kingston Whig-Standard
