    "inaccurateDisappointing"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    While the narration is acceptable, the author plays fast and loose with history. Many anachronisms exist in the story. It is unfortunate, as it would have set up well as a comparison to the Populares vs Beni politics of Caesar???s time. The series doesn???t break well in the books. None of the characters are particularly well rounded, nor can one sympathize much with any of them.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    different author.


    Which character ??? as performed by Nick Boulton ??? was your favorite?

    Marcellius


    Did The Sword of Revenge inspire you to do anything?

    no.


    Any additional comments?

    A true historical type fiction such as found in Sayer's books or in Colleen McCullough's books would have been very interesting. Instead, one is presented with a story that is mildly interesting but lacks any real historical footing.

    "Disappointing end to a great series"

    I don't write reviews, not sure anyone wants to hear what I think, but I was so disappointed in the end of this series, that I felt compelled. The series was so complete beforehand, so rich and full of character development that I couldn't wait for each new book. It was clear from reading this last in the trilogy that the author was up against a deadline in finishing the series; that he wrapped up the entire story in a few pages. The defeat of the ultimate enemy, the discovery of who our hero truly was, his meeting with his mother to tell him the truth, all brought to fruition in such a rapid fashion, that I was left feeling cheated. Shame on the author for taking us on a wonderful ride, only to completly let the reader down in the end.
