My rating: 5 of 5 stars
When I first opened this book and started reading, I thought the story would center around Caesar and his reign. Man, was I proved wrong! I’m very glad that I was, too.
Seeing Brutus portrayed not only as just a man, full of flaws, capable of loving no matter the cost, but also as one acting on what he thought was right made him more sympathetic. Carolyn molded history in a way that left the reader glued to every page, eager to know more. We were given glimpses of Caesar’s weakness, Marc Anthony’s arrogance, as well as the power play between the Senate and the Virgin’s in the hopes of making Rome something more and better than what it was.
I became engrossed within Carolyn’s tale of intrigue and heartache, absolutely loving every moment that unfolded between Syra and Brutus. It also made me want to know more about the Fated. What their purpose was and what roles do they actually take. All in all, I enjoyed the book very much!
