The Caspian Gates (2011)
language
English
3.89 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Caspian Gates is the weakest book in the Warrior of Rome series by Harry Sidebottom (though I am still to read the sixth one), and really feels more like a collection of three short stories, as Sidebottom transports Ballista and his familia throughout and beyond the imperium.Not ...

review 1: I just love this series! Sidebottom is that rarest of things: a scholar who also can write compelling; complex characters and situations. I find his writing to be endlessly inventive and full of historical information.Harry Sidebottom captures the spirit of the erea, and gives ...

review 1: He left me hanging - - I can't forgive him.This book includes a mystery of sorts - and I am sure some people who read it could have figured out who the bad guy was.Well there are a lot of bad guys but I mean the one who dismembers their victims. I thought I had a idea but - the a...

review 1: I really wanted to like this book. The author clearly know his history, and the details are nicely done. I had no problem rooting for the main character, and liking most of his retimue. Unfortunately, I kept getting jarred out of the story by sudden transitions or confusing sente...

review 1: I was not blown away by the first book and if I hadn't bought this at the same time would probably not bothered with the ongoing tales of Ballista. The author seems to try too hard to prove he is a 'proper' historian so we are given too much detail and this is not balanced out wi...

review 1: Did the Romans ever have peace when they ruled an Empire? I feel like it's not really worth having if you spend your entire time fighting to keep it. So many people killed, just for bits of land! Jeeze! This book started off amazing and I was all like yeah, this is the best in th...

review 1: I finally understand why I don't love these books.The history is interesting enough and they're well written enough. It's the main character that's the problem.He is supposed to be this great manly warrior but aside from being really good at killing people he mainly just acts lik...

review 1: Perhaps a better way to sum up this book would be "At the farthest ends of the Roman Empire, a newly appointed governor must bolster the defenses of a city facing an enemy greater than ever known. But the enemy gathers inside the walls as well as without, and when the governor's ...
