I especially applaud the writing and characterization Mr. Goldsworthy presented throughout this novel. The lyrical, vivid writing retains the character and historical complexities of the period while remaining understandable to people who, like myself, may not be as familiar with Roman military life in ancient Britain. The author skillfully imparted huge amounts of information on various Brittanic ethnic groups and the structure of the Roman military in an organic manner without sacrificing readability. The characterizations, even of minor characters like the unnamed Thracian who narrates the prologue, were thoughtfully and sympathetically portrayed. I also liked the pace of the plot, which seemed very plausible and led to a satisfying denouement.
This book became one of my top 10 reads for 2017, and I will definitely be reading the sequel!
I do hope that this is but the first in a long running series. Adrian Goldsworthy has done himself proud with this fictional story. A basic understanding of Roman and/or Roman age Britain is helpful for the fullest understanding of the main story line, but not absolutely necessary to enjoying a well written book.
