This is one in Saylor's Roma Sub Rosa series. My first meeting with the series was in a later volume (A MIST OF PROPHECIES)in the library of a senior residence in which I live. I was so delighted with the book that I sought out others by the same author and have now managed to read everything thus far published in the series, mostly in chronological order,plus one of his other novels. I reread the MISTS again in the chronological order and got a great deal more from it this time (though I had loved it the first time).

The title, including the name of a well known figure of the era in which it is set, is tantalizing.Saylor's knowledge of ancient Rome is amazing. The incredible detail, down to the foods of the era are fantastic. I have enjoyed each one of the books in the series more than I can express, and each time I have been eager to read the next one. I should add that I did not find the odd one (not from the series) nearly as enjoyable as the Sub Rosa series

With my knowledge of Roman history, I would imagine that there would be one more left to be produced in this series, and I am eager to hear of its publication.

Clearly I loved the book, but I do not reccommend it without the entire series, because while it can stand on its own, the pleasure is far greater taken in context of the entire series.

I might add that I have donated each of the books in this series, once read, to the library where I first found the authors work, in the interest of giving others the opportunity to enjoy as I have.
