Ambrose Ibsen does a great job at building the intrigue and creating a captivating story. It just doesn’t go for long enough - it was over before it started! Definitely a worth while listen if you like spooky and scary.

Brilliantly creative way to bring to life Greek Mythology. Stephen Fry was outstanding in both his writing and his telling.

Brilliant story, amazingly written. It's a pity he didn't write one more book about what happened after the Battle of Philippi.

Informative and Challenging

Mary does a great job of bringing Roman history to life from a multitude of different angles, both ancient and modern. Interestingly, she challenges well used ideas, such as the cruelty of Caligula and Nero with compelling arguments. Definitely worth a read!

Great book and series overall. Very diverse world and the author does a great job of helping his readers exploring it through difference books in the series focusing on different parts of the falling Empire.

My only critique is that he doesn't seem to understand military rank structures very well. Having corporals ordering around sergeants, Marine captains taking charge of navy colonels (apparently the navy has colonels), and corporals saluting sergeants, things like that. People who are familiar with ranks structures might find it annoying but it doesn't distract from a generally excellent story.
