I enjoyed the actual mystery but I'm quite glad this seems to be the last novel in the series because I've had enough of the way each volume towards the end of the series was implying and in some cases more than implying that Claudia and Orbilio had come together at last only to find at the beginning of the next book that no, they haven't, they're right back where they started.

3rd book (and last in series) finished

Andrew65 Well done👏👏👏 Always a good, but a sad time, when you finish a series. 1mo
rwmg @Andrew65 I think the author had written herself out with this series with no way to resolve the relationship between the two main characters and continue the series in this form, so I was quite glad she seems to have decided to call it a day with this one apart from short stories set at vague points on the timeline and has moved on to other series. 1mo

Has anybody read this? I‘m struggling a little, but maybe I‘m just not in the right mood.

Second in his Cicero trilogy, and this one sees Cicero rise to the top of Roman politics by becoming Consul, and shortly after acclaimed Father of the People with the defeat of Catilina's conspiracy. But the top of the pole is a dangerous place, and all too soon the tide of popular opinion turns against Cicero and in a heart-rending final chapter he is forced into exile. Wonderful stuff.

CoffeeCatsBooks Loved this series! I even got the audio too. 2mo

I enjoyed reading about Domitians reign from the perspective of a slave who became his mistress. He was loved by the army, but he was a very cruel ruler. I see the fascination with the Coliseum games reflected in the fascination in todays world with violence on tv and in video games. Things don't change
