A talent for storytelling and a wonderful erudition

This novel, a little fragile as for the plot, plunges us into a raw antiquity, where Sulpicius and Lucius, heroes of the previous novel, thwart the assassination attempts against Caesar, Vespasian here. Beautiful feather, some digressions sometimes long, but we become attached to the characters, even if they are violent and cruel, as we were at that time. A beautiful reading
