The story is about the brutal, dissolute occupation of Great Britain by the newly arisen, powerful Roman Empire -- not about the ancient invasions; not set in the present, rather in a future where technology meets the shadows of the past. The story can be described as a kind of fantasy wherein the Romans relive the time of the Caesars. However, the story revolves around a courageous band of individuals dedicated to defeating the Romans, freeing the people, and restoring the kingdom to the rightful heir.
The novel catches your interest from the beginning. You know it is going to be different and intriguing.
In my notes, I wrote that it is a fantasy of the improbable that could be a reality in the future; well, not really, but it is an epic adventure that is truly entertaining.
There is a rich cast of characters, of many shades, from the good, brave, and altruistic to self-seeking, egoistic, and evil; for example: William and Roost, a couple of rogue, go your own way individuals; smart, capable warriors. Add to the mix a sword wielding King Owen and a beautiful queen. All Characters are larger than life.
This is a heroic adventure laced with political intrigue, war, explosive action, and pure romance. Reviewed by the author of The Children's Story, About Good and Evil.
(Note that there are some typos -- I use typo as a general term -- but they are not distracting.)
