Throne of the Caesars: Sep 09, Jim rated it liked it. Valerian, a practical and sound-minded lifer in the Roman army, is vladiatrix prisoner and, let’s just say, not treated very well.

It is not just the interactions between individual characters which stirred me, there are also fierce interactions between the races too.

En route, they serve as the protective older brothers to a sister who’s really in no need of protection and never accepts it anyway. Historical Fiction at it’s best.

Why four stars not five for a book this good – this is my protest at the unnecessary sex that really seems to have been put in at the publishers insistence. Roma Victrix was very different and I defintely did appreciate the changes. I was pleased to get the next installment and was not disappointed. In fact, if the story of the training itself hadn’t been so fascinating, I’d have tossed the book aside in disgust!
