The second one covers Vitelius and Vespasian. The Last Caesar is his first novel. And I read it in a few short days. When it does arrive it will certainly be high on my reading list. His friendships are also well caricatured and his many kindnesses to Quintus, son of a former enemy, are touching. Aside from the occasional family holiday, often to Italy, his only escape from school and village life was in the pages of historical fiction. It's interesting the political pressures he faces, the betrayals, the choices he has to make, his ambitious wife who's obsessed with power over principle.

In addition to the cast of supporting characters, I would say the main strength of the novel for me was the narrative style. Among them is a hero of the campaign against Boudicca, Aulus Caecina Severus. There are some great characterisations in the novel, I found Caecina not only a likeable main character but someone who I could personally relate too, Totavalas the slave, a character that I think will really come to the fore in the next book, I just wish he had been a little more in the slave mold, I don't think he would have lasted long with many masters with his mocking self-assured attitude, but you have to accept these character types as part of the passionate pace of the book and the writing style of the author. Get the book if you are interested in Ancient Rome and the Roman Legions. Roll on the next book, Henry. Like Nice to read your blogging words again. As Nero's tyranny and probable madness began to totally unwind, the Legions of Gaul and Hispania began to revolt, not since Julius Caesar had Roman armies fought each other.

Good luck with the latest book launch…. If I have a concern with The Last Caesar, it is that the book is only half a story or possibly less. The boundary between the good of Rome and self preservation is far from clear, and keeping to the dangerous path he's chosen requires all Severus' skills as a cunning soldier and increasingly deft politician. The E-mail message field is required. The Last Caesar by Henry Venmore-Rowland. Among them is a hero of the campaign against Boudicca, Aulus Caecina Severus.

This means the book is quite hard to put down and is quite a page turner. Caught up in a conspiracy to overthrow Caesar's dynasty, he commits treason, raises a rebellion, faces torture and intrigue - all supposedly for the good of Rome. Driven by the desire to repay the treachery of his former patron, the Emperor Galba, and to keep The Last Caesar. Good luck with the latest book launch…. That said, it should not detract from what is a good first novel. So I read The Last Caesar.

The tyrant emperor Nero has no son and no heir.

The net result was a struggle between a small number of military leaders.

Just search Amazon books or the wider internet to see the volume of new historical fiction that is now on offer. If your tower is the tallest structure, mine is perhaps being stored in a cave, deep underground, where the walls are lit with un-mined diamonds and there is a never-ending supply of chocolate so that I amy have sustenance while I read. The story proceeds at a good pace and there is plenty of action here. The boundary between service and self-preservation is far from clear, and keeping to the dangerous path he's chosen requires all Severus' skills: as cunning soldier and, increasingly, deft politician. It made the book very engaging.

I do recommend this book, it is written by a young and enthusiastic author who writes about a period time when Roman and the Empire were at a key junction in history, unless I am mistaken no other writer of Historical fiction has tacked this period in time. Vespasian was to ultimately, to win and rule for 10 years. Severus rides it all with some aplomb, to culminate in an ending which clearly leaves unfinished business and leaves the way open for a sequel.
