This is not a fast paced, action-packed book about some Roman legionary but a very clever, well researched and compelling story about a clever man in a new world facing superstition and nastiness who will find strange allies, discover the unknown, and face very strong enemies.
It’s epic and it prepares the scene for the action and exciting things that will come.
Simon Turney can surely write historical fiction, and this was an excellent story that kept me hooked an turning pages. It wasn’t love at first pages, but the story grew on me as I got to know the different characters and travel with them
Titus Cervanius is a fascinating character, a man of his time and very modern at the same time. He’s well developed and interesting, I look forward to reading more about him.
The historical background is well researched and vivid, I learned something new and travelled with the characters in the ancient Egypt.
I can’t wait to read the next story as I want to know what will happen.
This one is strongly recommended.
Many thanks to Aries and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine
