Enjoyed this, but not as much as Eagle in the Snow, which I listened to last year. Breem does a great job of the desolation/back of beyond/edge of empire kind of feel, but I found parts of the story hard to follow - possibly due to having to pay attention to driving rather than listening at critical times! Perhaps I would have had a greater understanding of the subtleties of the plot if I'd been reading it myself rather than listening. Still, I'm disappointed the author didn't write more than just the two books set in the Imperial Rome. I'd love to read more.
