    1. A fantastic addition to a consistently excellent series on Vespasian. So much going on here - in Rome and in Britannia - and all of it is gripping. Highlights, and there are many, include a fabulously terrifying portrait of Nero.

    2. This series is getting more and more far-fetched. This time we are treated to a rather distasteful version of Boudica's revolt (a theme that has become horribly over-rehashed recently) - in which, of course, Vespasian just happens to take part. Vespasian and Sabinus become less pleasant and much less humane and the Druids continue to be stereotyped. All the characters are becoming more caricatures, really. Magnus remains likable (though typecast and repetitive) but it gets harder and harder to c [...]

    3. Earning the enmity of Claudius' wife Agrippina was usually the equivalent of a death sentence, but Vespasian was obviously a survivor literally as well as politically. Following his consulship in 51 CE he vanishes from the records for twelve years. This inconvenient lack of detail provides a real test of skill for the historical novelist; how do you keep the pace, excitement and interest going across a long story arc without becoming too far fetched? Fabbri's decision to place Vespasian, Sabinus [...]

    4. First up - Have you ever known a time when Rome wasn't in turmoil? It clearly is the mainstay of people writing Roman-era fiction of course, to have Rome constantly in the afore-mentioned turmoil, but come on! There must have been some dull years? Some quiet times, like when all the stuff got built. Still, the period we're entering into here, is one of the most tumultuous in Rome's history. I'm no expert in Roman history, I'm just going by the number of books I've read set in this period (!). An [...]

    5. This is the seventh book in the Vespasian series which is set in Ancient Rome. In AD58, Vespasian is now middle aged and has seen much unrest during his time spent at the centre of Roman politics. In this latest installment, the emperor Nero is behaving very badly and Vespasian gets drawn more and more into the conspiracies and counter conspiracies which revolve around the seeming cruelties of Nero's court.The closeted atmosphere of the ancient Roman world is brought vividly to life in truly bel [...]

    6. Continuing the story of Vespasian - lots of interesting goings-on in Rome with that wacky-lovable all-around-man about town NERO. Robert Fabbri is able to convey the fear that gripped Rome as Nero's reign continued and our boy Vespasian is right in the middle of things. I actually was was feeling just as uncomfortable as Vespasian.Fabbri is good like that. His attention to details is second to none. You feel like you're right there.The story shifts to Britain and the revolt of the natives led by [...]

    7. Well only took seven books, but the author finally got to me. I absolutely loved this book, by far the best in the Vespasian Series. I attribute my change of heart to the fact that Mr. Fabbri finally let a female character be something more than a crude allusion to sexual pleasure. Those familiar with Ancient Roman Society know that its women had many ways to exert influence and power in their own right. Here, Caenis finally gets the opportunity to shine as the resourceful helpmate she always co [...]

    8. This volume mainly deals with Nero's early rule and with Boudicca's uprising in Britain. I found this to be the weakest volume in the series so far. The intrigues are hard to believe (like Pallas spending a fortune to get Vespasian to deliver an invitation) and the writing regularly has "the maid and the butler" problems (with characters telling each other things they both know already just to inform the reader. The battle scenes are as good as ever though, with good insights in the strategies a [...]

    9. Slow start Slow start, bogged down by politics, spends too long in Rome. Story really gets going in the second half in Britannia. Let's hope that the next instalment pace picks up!

    10. de geschiedkundige kant (en waarde) wordt steeds minder, het begint wel erg een avonturenverhaal te worden. het wordt tijd dat deze serie zijn einde nadert

    11. We are now quite a way through Vespasian's life in this entertaining series. This volume takes place part-way into Nero's reign, as he becomes more and more unstable, and everyone has to watch their backs. The fact that we actually know very little about large sections of Vespasian's life is both a positive and a negative; positive in that it allows the author a lot of leeway to weave fictional stories around the known facts. But the flip side is that there is a temptation to place Vespasian as [...]

    12. Story of Vaspasian's slow, but sure, rise to the purple continues. Fabbri took few liberties with his story and involving him in Baudicca's revolt in Britannia. but as Fabbri said in his rpevous book, which took simialr liberties, it was either make something up, skip period when Vespasian was out of public life or write about his boring life on farm. This way we get at least treated to some pivotal events of the time.As was already case in previous book Vespasian starts to see that there might [...]

    13. Just like the previous six in this series. Very well-researched and competent historical fiction. This is the second book in the series where the action returns to Britannia, and there's an undercurrent swirling through this book - as there was during the one that featured Claudius' invasion in 43 AD - that the Romans completely and utterly wasted their time in that land. That it was all for nothing. An invasion to enrich a privileged few while hundreds of thousands languished and died. A common [...]

    14. I enjoyed this book, like the rest of the series and cannot wait for the next one. One problem im having now though is we've followed Vespianus for 35 years now, he's a 50 year old man who has took part in many fights and intrigues but his 'voice' hasnt changed. I feel like he would make the same decisions for the same reasons with the same results as he would when he was a 16 year old tribune in the Balkans.

    15. Another few years in the life of the future emperor Vespasian. This time, he is mixed up with Nero, and the British revolt. Fabbri adds some interesting speculations about the Revolt and Vespasian's life. He also paints Seneca in a rather unflattering fashion. The action is fast and detailed, the final battle of the Revolt is compelling. The grimmest part of the novel is Nero, his innate evil is all too visible. A great read. Recommended.

    16. I always enjoy reading the story of Vespasian's rise to the purple as portrayed by Robert Fabbri. Plenty of action as usual, and I love the characterisations which often make me smile. Stretching history somewhat to involve Vespasian in the Boudica revolt, is of course entirely forgiveable as it makes a great instalment in this epic series. Can't wait for the next one Robert, keep them coming.

    17. These books just get better and better , it shows Rome as a place that is harder and harder to not live in fear, Nero is getting madder and Madder what hope for the empire as no one is safe it will only get worse Fabbri moves Vespasian to Britain and we see in his eyes how Boudicca and the revolt of the Iceni tribes nearly Crush Roman rule in Britain

    18. ExcellentThese stories get better and better. This series is excellent, bringing real history to life. The abject terror of living under the power of a madman like Nero is brought fervently to life, as is the the rebellion of the Icini in Britannia. Highly recommended.

    19. Fabbri n ver disappoints. In this episode, Vespasian has become a darker figure, in keeping with the degeneracy of his time. Fascinating.
