The storyline of this book is great, especially towards the end: gripping! However, about half the book is from a male perspective. I think that they should have had a male narrate that portion since it was such an extensive portion of the book and the female narrator did not do a great job impersonating male characters. Also, the female characters in this book are strong and regal. The narrator made them sound ditzy. My opinion is to read the book rather than listen as the audible does not do it justice.
Long complicated story. Actual history interesting but trying to weave multiple characters into years of Roman history and all their stories back and forth sometimes got confusing Characters like Vix seemed muddled. Hero? OK tough soldier but unable to manage personal relations. Just does what he's told. Limited conscience. Was indifferent to most characters. For me, the only interesting one was Haradian with all mental/emotional issues. I'm a history buff and just reading history books about him is more interesting than this book.
