I'm always excited when I see a new release from Lindsey Davis. She makes ancient Rome seem like the next town over. I can expect a story that makes always makes me laugh, can usually summon a few tears and makes me sad when it ends. The reader is fantastic as well. Built around the festival of Saturnalia, it brings back some great characters from a previous novel. As I listened I realized everyone has had a Christmas like Falco's Saturnalia. I can't wait for the next book. The BBC dramatizations are also great.
Quite a story that had me going to the end. Well written but not what I usually read. It has a very mystical twist to it. I read for total escapism and this left me feeling a bit unsettled at the end
Great story, good pacing. I thought it brought ancient Rome to life. Highly recommend.
