Any additional comments?
This is book 2 of a three book series. And all three are equally good, as they chart the rise and fall (well death) of Maximinus from various points of view from the citizens of Rome, to the eastern reaches of the Empire. To the wars on the frontiers. A complex tale is nicely created with both tragic and heroic moments. I would recommend all three to anyone.
Also as they are set a few years before the writers "Warrior of Rome" series they form a prequel of sorts with Ballista playing quite a pivotal role in book 3 of this series.
