Publisher's Summary

Britannia, 45 AD: Vespasian's brother, Sabinus, is captured by druids. The druids want to offer a potent sacrifice to their gods – not just one Roman Legate, but two.
They know that Vespasian will come after his brother and they plan to sacrifice the siblings on midsummer's day. Vespasian must strive to save his brother whilst completing the conquest of the south-west of the haunted isle, before he is drawn inexorably back to Rome and the heart of Imperial politics.
As Messalina's time as Empress comes to a bloody end, Claudius' three freedmen each back a different mistress. But which woman will be victorious? And at what price for Vespasian?

Worst performance by a narrator ever

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I can't really rate the book, because the narrator was virtually unintelligible.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I would have had my 12 year old read it to me.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

He spoke so rapidly, I thought maybe he had a bus to catch. His enunciation was terrible, he went from a whisper to a scream all in the same sentence. Worst performance I've ever endured (actually I couldn't endure it, I only lasted 2 hrs).

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Probably not.

Any additional comments?

If I were the author of this book, I would be devastated by the narrator's performance of my novel.
