The story starts out as a good Roman legion historical novel. The opening battle scenes and strategies are well done and very descriptive. After that the story becomes one of Lucius seeking out the amulet. He has to wend his way through tunnels laden with traps including spiked pits, giant swinging swords triggered by stepping on recessed bricks, falling slabs of stone, etc. Then he has to cross a vast desert with two untrustworthy men who also want to seize the amulet when it is found.
This all makes for an interesting and captivating story line. But, it is not the type of historical novel that one expects to find when reading about one of Caesar's centurions. It did make for a good adventure story ala Indiana Jones but not what I expected.
