The book was short 200 epages, but I liked the characters The author had a way with words and showed wittiness There were the common errors in grammar that many writers of late seem to be determined to make Thank you, Mr Buckner, for a good read. Reasonable ReadNot a bad storyline, if somewhat overused by numerous authors What makes this offering annoying is the continual misnaming of members of the Roman legions as legionaries instead of correctly naming them as legionaries a quite common mistake by American authors unfortunately Much like they insist on calling volcano specialists scientists Volcanologists instead of their correct designation of Vulcanologists after the Roman god Vulcan.

superiors try to fight off the rebellion of the British tribes, in their effort they are helped by some tribes loyal to them The book doesn t fail to introduce an impressive Barbarian daughter with whom Verus develops a romance.The book has everything you could ask of a swashbuckling adventure with sword and fist fights, battles with clever ploys and chases through the woods.Being a short book it makes for a quick read and the pages flow without much issue The first part of the book has the writer using unnecessarily too many Latin terms to describe the various parts of the Roman uniform and such, without explaining what each term means That and a few errors like calling the city of Egypt Alexandra instead of Alexandria serve to spoil the mood a bit But if you manage to keep those of your lenses, the rest is satisfying Rome Unbound is a piece of historical fiction that takes place during the British rebellion of Rome Before reading this book, I was not familiar with the British

fictionalized accounts of this rebellion What really impressed me about this story was the author s ability to bring to life these characters in a way where the reader understands the motivations behind their actions and is really immersed in the story In some chapters, the story is told from the viewpoint of the Roman side and in other chapters the story is told from the rebellion side, and then eventually the two stories intersect.Rome Unbound has a visceral feel at times and it comes across as authentic I really enjoyed the battle scenes, which were told from both sides The book weaved in parts about strategy and techniques used by the Roman side and rebellion side that added to my interest Also, I liked the main character, Verus, and being able to understand his backstory and his role in the fighting the rebellion.Rome Unbound is a short, enjoyable story and I would recommend it to people interested in the topic Quintus Liberius Verus is a respected centurion newly assigned to Britain in the midst of rumbling rebellion by the native tribes Rome s expanding empire rules much of the world with harsh measures, and considers Britain the edge of the world, peopled by brutish

from Britain, and retake a critical Roman for that had recently been lost In this book we get a view of some of the different peoples of roman Britain, and how they interacted with each other and with Rome It is be opening book in what promises to be an ongoing saga in the adventures of Centurion Verus The Author s Note helpfully explains where the novel fits into history, and where known facts end

to fully understand what s going on later, but it could beintriguing in the beginning My advice to the author with later books is to capture reader with some really intriguing scenes first and then go on telling a story Also,love But overall very good
