I liked most of everything in this. How it paints Octavian as the bad guy when Augustus is known as the Pax Romana guy. It's fitting from the Numinous World point of view that his legacy (Tiberus, Caligula, Nero) kinda destroys Rome. Charmain, Iras, Cleopatra are all strong women, all Companions in that always evolving world. One of the fun things in reading these books is figuring out who was who and who will be who. I did shed tears at the end.
