    It is very rare that you come across a piece of historical fiction that brings alive "everyday life" centuries ago as this one does. I particularly liked the detailed description of life among Roman legionnaires. The book is simply so much more authentic that the "Gladiator" type fiction that Hollywood encourages. There is a wonderful map of the Eastern Roman Empire at the beginning and a great glossary at the back so you don't have to have a PhD in Ancient History to follow the plot.

    an intriguing theory in this excellent historical novel

    In this first work of fiction by Stephen Lorne Bennett, the reader is presented with an engaging and informative look into the cultures and environment of the central and eastern Mediterranean region in the second century AD. An intriguing story line is carried throughout by well-developed characters, and fleshed out with vivid descriptions of the landscape, weapons, combat, clothing, food, architecture and social customs. I was not previously familiar with details of this era, but Last of the Ninth is written with an authority that suggests painstaking research. Within this framework of historical facts, Bennett presents his hypothesis on the mysterious disappearance of Rome's 9th Hispanic Legion.
