The Lion and the Rose (2014)

English
4.24 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: This is the second book of this series which I think completes it. I really enjoyed the first book and feel the same about this one. This author does an excellent job of weaving a good story and tell of an historical event. I feel that she does her research well. What is of p...

review 1: I utterly tore through this, loving Sabina despite her flaws, and being amused by Vix despite his utter ridiculousness in some cases. I thought Quinn did a good job here of spinning off from the story told in Mistress of Rome without too much overlapping 'sequel' flavor - Vix and...

review 1: She did it again! I am yet to pick up a book written by Kate Quinn that I don't fall in love with. While I like the Rome series a bit more (I found I liked the characters a bit more) This book keeps your attention and going right to the end. My only issue is after watching 4 s...
Mistress of Rome (2010)
language
English

review 1: This novel is fast-paced and I loved it being set in Ancient Rome. However, the antagonists are too easily portrayed as pure evil with no backstory as to why or how they became that way, which I always find too implausible and simple for my tastes. I prefer stories with more deve...
Daughters of Rome (2011)
language
English

review 1: “Daughters of Rome has an appealing symmetry—the succession of four emperors, the alternating narratives of the four cousins—and strikes an authentic balance between poetic justice and harsh reality. . . . This second book stands on its own two feet, and offers a compelling exper...

review 1: I really wanted to like this book. But for some reason, it just didn't live up to Mistress of Rome.I did not like any of the characters other than Titus, Trajan, and Faustina. Sabina was a bit too unrealistic and annoying for me...it seemed as if she always hid her emotions and d...

English

review 1: Kate Quinn's third Roman novel is just as good as the previous two. Quinn has a talent for weaving historical facts and fiction; her dialogue is witty and fluid while her descriptions are vivid and real. Her writing style relies more on dialogue than description but that keeps t...

review 1: Didn't like it as much as the second book. I found the main characters, Vix and Sabina, selfish and predictable. Of course, they were intended to be flawed but the characters and plot just weren't as exciting or interesting as Kate's other books. Plotina, the villain, lacked lust...

review 1: This might be my new favorite book by Kate Quinn. Something about the chemistry of the Cornelii ladies just really worked for me, and the way all their stories were woven together was fantastic. I have to admit I dragged my feet on reading this one, because the back cover blurb m...
