Sidebotttom may be relatively new to the historical fiction novels regarding Rome but combined with Rudnicki & the authors academic background he is able to strike a good balance between action & history, plus Ballista is such a great character that many other good Roman series (Macro/Cato), they tend to be expendable which leads to all out fighting for ones life because they have nothing to lose
Plus, he had a great group of 'familia' from the beginning, although he lost a few he still has Maximus which I imagine a character similar to Gladiator the movies character, he gets his revenge, doesn't die, but gets placed into a legion of forlorn soldiers... Rudnicki brings Ballista to life & makes it much more interesting, I'm not sure if the series would be so entertaining without this narrator...
Worth the credits, all 5, some are better obviously but they all have a couple pitched battles, skirmishes, & other interesting social balances
