    This book got better and better the more I read until I was brea

    This book got better and better the more I read until I was breathlessly rushing to reach the end. I couldn’t believe how action-packed the middle to end of this installment was! The villains are SO evil! I was burning with anger as their cruelty continuously topped itself. And I love, love, love it when the heroine is the rescuer on a gallant steed instead of the damsel in distress. I cannot wait to find out what is next for Gigi and Magnus. Picking up the final installment of the Roman Time Travel Trilogy right now!

    "After the Fall" continues the story of 21st century G

    "After the Fall" continues the story of 21st century Gigi Perrin and her not-so-modern Roman lover Magnus. Through the magic of a ring, Gigi has been transported back to ancient Rome where she has met and married Magnus. Rome, ruled by the corrupt Emperor Honorius, is under attack by the Visigoths, who have taken in Magnus and Gigi after they escape Rome under threat of death from the emperor.

    In "After the Fall" a second set of lovers is introduced, Placida, the sister of the emperor, and Athaulf, second-in-command of the Visigoths. The four lovers try to find a way to spare Rome the sacking that a Visigoth victory will bring and give the Visigoths what they are entitled to but machinations on both sides interfere. The war, the interference of a wicked woman in the Visigoth's camp, the determination of Honorius to wreak havoc on those he hates all provide tension and a satisfying number of plot twists to the story. The final plot twist--the surprising ending--certainly makes the reader eager to find out how it all turns out in the final book of the series.

    The authors have done some amazing research--and writing--to bring the ancient world to life. For a history buff like me, feeling as if I'm there, in Rome, in the Visigoth encampment, is the fun of reading these stories. I'm looking forward to number 3!

    I protest. I protest that I finished this book too soon. I protest that it sucked me in, sucked my heart dry, and spit me out on the rocks, deliriously happy and sad at the same time.

    Beyond the movie, Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, I haven't really delved into time travel stories. That's all changed thanks to Morgan O'Neill. I'm a fan.

    I really appreciated the historical accuracy and at the same time loved that a modern woman - a flutist for god's sake! - held her own alongside her battle-seasoned hero against their thoroughly loathsome nemesis. There were heart-thumping moments, especially at the end, and rich rewards. I enjoyed this story immensely and look forward to the last of the trilogy. It can't come soon enough.

    Morgan O'Neil have done it again. I could not put this book down until the last exciting page. If you love time travel and Roman history that comes to life, this book is for you. Can't wait for more thrilling stories.

    After the Fall is another novel, as rich in character, descripti

    After the Fall is another novel, as rich in character, description, intrigue and deceit as the first book in this Roman Series, Love, Eternally. Once again, I was set firmly in ancient Rome with Magnus and Gigi, characters whose fate I didn’t want left to the imagination after book one. Readers might wonder how Gigi’s life could be as exciting as it was in Love, Eternally, but After the Fall does not disappoint. A woman trapped in the past, Gigi continues to be a strong heroine who faces constant conflict as Rome is attacked and she must fight for those she loves all the way to the surprise ending. We also revisit Placidia who must defy her brother, the evil and powerful emperor Honorius, to save her soul and follow her heart. If you haven’t read Love, Eternally and After the Fall, hurry up! I’ve heard the story continues in Return to Me. And I can’t wait!

    Kudos! A Fantastic Sequel!

    I eagerly awaited this second installment in the Roman Time Travel Series after the fabulous LOVE, ETERNALLY. Sophomore books in a series sometimes disappoint, but not in this series. AFTER THE FALL was definitely worth the wait. Once again, I was immediately drawn into this lush, adventurous, dangerous, and romantic world during the fall of Rome, which the impeccable writing team of Morgan O’Neill began in LOVE, ETERNALLY.

    Throughout the savage intensity of war between the Romans and the Visigoths, betrayals, loss and separation, and political machinations, the authors weave in the enduring romance between Gigi and Magnus. Not only does the love affair with Gigi and Magnus continue, but I was also excited to read about the building love between evil Honorius’s sister Placidia and Athaulf brother of the Visigoth leader. Belonging to two warring factions, the unlikely pair faced tumultuous circumstances that kept them apart, but also happily brought them together.

    Like LOVE, ETERNALLY, the writing is gorgeous, lush and impeccable. The historical aspects are excellently researched and woven in. Fans of Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series will love Morgan O’Neill’s Roman Time Travel series. Even though it will be sad to let go of Gigi and Magnus, I can’t wait to read how the trilogy ends. Run, don’t walk to get your copy of both LOVE, ETERNALLY and AFTER THE FALL. Fall in love with Rome like I did.
