The author has an incredible grasp of this period in history. The research is superb; ;the reader is living with the characters. The entire series is wonderful. I bought the first few books in the series when it first came out, at new book prices, but there was a year or more between publication of each book and it was hard to put the books in context. I loaned the First Man in Rome out so many times, it became quite worn and I had never completed the series. With Alibris I was able to afford to replace that book and all the books in the series I didn't own. So now I am going to enjoy reading the entire series from beginning to end. Joy.
This book will be a joy for any fan of historical-based fiction. It's full development of characters and events easily rivals that of George McDonald Fraser (the "Flashman" series) and Patrick O'Brian (the Aubrey/Maturin novels).
Nearly impossible to set aside, I bought the entire 7-book series before finishing "The First Man in Rome". Five Stars.
