    This series is getting better in writing style and in characterization It turned out to be quite a page turner and quite exciting, on the whole I am glad that future books in the series will take Valerius from Nero s Rome, beginning with the upheaval following Nero s suicide But that is to come I think Nero s been overdone we all know his cruelty, megalomania, narcissism, paranoia I ski

    Review Douglas Jackson and his hero Gaius Valerius Verrens returns in book three of the same named series.As pointed out by the Splendid reviewer Kate this is two books in one tome, We follow our hero on a journey to Antioch escorting the lady Domita to visit her father Its not an easy journey, full of intrigue danger and coming together of characters The other part of the book puts us on Valerius home turf, t

    I rather like the fact that Gaius Valerius Verrens has grown as a person and a character through the three books The first book had slight flaws a slightly rushed relationship and left Verrens a hero, but very much a broken hero So in the second book we had a man coming to terms with his fame and his injury and being thrown into the dark pit of Roman politics and at the whim of the very dangerous Nero.So Avenger of Ro

    The Hero of Rome is back In this third novel, Valerius is sent east by an emperor with only the slightest of grips on reality Nero His mission is to spy on the immensely successful general Corbulo who may have been a little too victorious with the Parthians for his own good But nothing is as straightforward as it seems and it s not long before Valerius is tested again to prove his loyalty, courage and honour This is a book of

    I finished Avenger of Rome, or it finished me Hard to decide One hell of a thrilling ride Four books into what was originally described as a trilogy and no sign of slacking, just getting better and better There is no doubt for me that, at the moment, when we re talking Roman period Historical Fiction, it s Douglas Jackson, Robert Fabbri and then the rest.The story has now moved into quite a recognisable and well trodden period of Rom

    For those of us interested Roman history, Douglas Jackson and authors like him are able to transport you to pivotal moments throughout the period and put you in the middle of the action Valerius becomes the time portal through which we re able to witness all these pivotal events first hand And Jackson does it so well.Everything about these stories is great He writes battle so well, but he also takes you into the background of the Roman life and soci

    This series just gets better with each book and is becoming one of my favourite historical series This one sees our hero sent east to spy on one of nero s generals, the journey east covers the bulk of the book and involves pirates, shipwreck and rescue The action comes thick and fast and the four hundred and ninty plus pages flew by Highly Recommended.
