Lacks the Excitement of the Warrior of Rome Series
What disappointed you about Iron and Rust (Throne of the Caesars, Book 1)?
I loved the Warrior of Rome series and while this was just as well written, the novel is more political, less focused on the military and lacks the near-death excitement of following Ballista.
What character would you cut from Iron and Rust (Throne of the Caesars, Book 1)?
I didn't know who to like. There is no main character and as the story jumps around the Empire I cannot engage with any of the characters as they move fleetingly through the narrative.
