BOOKS 4-6 IN THE VESPASIAN SERIES______________________________________________Don't miss Robert Fabbri's epic new series Alexander's Legacy
Read these books for their history and entertainment. I have enjoyed these books because the history is familiar and the fictional story is entertaining .It carries the reader along well.My problem is trying to remember who's who because of Roman names. I think most books about Vespasian are sympathetic especially his relationship with his mistress, but I'm sure he wasn't all good !!
fascinating is addictive. if you start it you will not leave it. great writer . thank you for you work keep it like this. i bought everything you published and I read them. thank you Robert Fabbri
Long read Enjoyed the action sequences, etc, but found the prolonged and complex political twists and turns confusing and frankly quite boring.
Brilliant attention to detail This series of books was recommended to me by Ben Kane himself, through an email chat, and I've not be been disappointed
Excellent Book. Very informative, excellent read.
Great series Liked this series as it gave you an insight to how Vespasian began his career and ended up Emperor.
Must read from book 1 to understand what follows Great fiction on the life vespasian
Slow start but follows through Very good read but slow in chapters.
great read Love this series of books
Packende Erzählung aus der Antike Ich habe schon einige historische Romane gelesen. Aus der Antike waren sie immer eher fade. Aber Robert Fabbri erzählt eine Geschichte, die immer wieder spannend ist, Sympathie für die Helden erweckt, ohne sie zu Göttern zu machen. Die Zeit wird lebendig und es macht einfach Spaß zu lesen
