Meet the Author

There are many rumours about D.A Lascelles, most of them untrue, many of them started by his students. There are claims he is a member of the Italian mafia, that he was once an Australian soap star and that he starred in Kindergarten Cop. There is apparently a Wikipedia page which claims he may possibly have discovered the cure for cancer. None of these are true, though he did once work for the Cancer Research Campaign as a researcher. His life to date has mainly concerned acquiring far too many qualifications, working in scientific research and somehow ending up as a teacher. He used to live in Birmingham (the one in England , nowhere near Alabama ) but has now moved to Manchester with his wife, Sarah, and dog, Eddie (who makes a cameo in this story).

    I was given this book free, for an honest review. D A Lascelles

    I was given this book free, for an honest review.

    D A Lascelles style of writing had me interested right from the prologue. The characters were believable & I enjoyed the contrast of the characters from the past with those from the present day.

    It was only a short book & I did find the plot a little easy to predict as the book went along, but I did find it a really enjoyable read.

    This story captivates you in a way that a short story rarely can

    This story captivates you in a way that a short story rarely can.  Everything was so vivid and well laid out that you couldn’t help but feel for the story.  It was extremely well written and had the ability to engage the reader and keep their interest.  Everything was laid out in such a manner as to entice the reader further into this world.  I also appreciated the fact that the Roman legionnaires were on par with reality.  Although this story itself is a fictional construct, they were not.




    The characters in this short are better developed than many characters that you see in some full length novels.  You may not know every tiny detail about them, but you definitely get to know who they are.  They are also the type of people that you want to get to know better.  By the end you feel like you really do know them well enough to go and grab a coffee and chat.




    Lascelles has mastered the art of using the English word to its most effective end.  He doesn’t sacrifice the storyline of this work to unnecessary narrative and descriptions while at the same time bringing everything, both character and setting, to life.
