A Winner in the True Sense of the Word Starting a series with Book 4 may not always be a good thing – except when the content is laid out by a writer like Alison Morton. No wonder, Aurelia, Book 4 of the Roma Nova Series, is Shortlisted for the 2016 Historical Novel Society Indie Award. Furthermore, Aurelia is a B.R.A.G. Medaillion Honoree for excellence in writing. (“Honoree” having nothing to do with “honorable mention.” This is the real deal.) While there was plenty of action, the language flowed easily yet was intelligent; it didn’t need grisly detail or expletives to make you sit up a little straighter and hold your breath, wondering what was to come next. Toward the end, I actually became worried I might run out of pages before the story ended – I did not. But I was sorry to have come to the end of such an interesting speculative fiction premise. Thank you, Alison Morton, for the enjoyable hours I spent reading Aurelia. Inge H. Borg, Author of the “Legends of the Winged Scarab” Series.
