Poor choice of book - not what I expected.

Would you try another book from Harry Turtledove and/or Eric Michael Summerer?

Yes- it was just the subject matter of this one using magic that I disliked.


Would you ever listen to anything by Harry Turtledove again?

Yes - I have read many of his books and will do so again. I enjoy his alternate history books.


Which character – as performed by Eric Michael Summerer – was your favorite?

The hero was believable and the Nazi theories about racial supremacy were true to form. . The Aryans were as mythology says they were.


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment. From the title I had guessed it had something to do with the Roman Empire.


Any additional comments?

The novel relies on "magic" which I found less satisfying than Mr. Turtledove's other books. I am a scientist so I am understandably skeptical about the existence of magic.
