Received from NetGalleyThe time is now but the Roman Empire never fell Leading a Roman expedition of conuest of what is obviously North America is Praetor Gaius Marcellinus He s landed on the east coast his goal to march west to discover the cities of gold across the mountains His force is already tired and stressed but he has to march on depending on indigenous guides in order to navigate the wild geography and unknown lands before reaching the flood plains of the vast river that we recognize as the MississippiThe book is filled with plenty of adventures and battle scenes the backbone being Smale s superlative understanding of Roman culture fighting techniues and euipment Added bonus how emperors thought at the start Marcellinus considers the world empire that now nearly stretches across the entire globe and reflects on the problems of administration problems which not only evoke the writings of some actual Roman emperors but even the memoirs of other emperors such as China s remarkable K Ang HsiAnother interesting aspect is Smale s extrapolations of First Nation cultural development He doesn t explain how they got there but I enjoyed seeing where he went with various cultures as the Romans progressed on their trek This is not Romans smashing their way through the simple Indians of days of yore the encounters are far complex and definitely bloody as the Romans are tested to the maxDownside Marcinellus is really the only character who gets complex treatment Everyone else is pretty much a pilum carrier and there is a serious dearth of women Still if you like Alt History things Roman well done battle scenes and lots of wild geography this book should give you plenty of bang for your buck

Clash of Eagles (Clash of Eagles, #1) Free download ✓ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Alan Smale Å 6 Read & Download Read È PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Å Alan Smale Fully underestimated the fighting prowess of the Native American inhabitants When Gaius is caught behind enemy lines and spared he must reevaluate his allegiances and find a new place in this strange land. I received an eARC of this book from the publisher through NetGalleyWhat a satisfying read Imagine an alternate history where Rome didn t fall and was responsible for leading the age of discovery into the New World How would their early encounters with the Native Americans go This book turned out to be much than a what if situation developing into a richly constructed historical fantasy While the author mentions it as the first of a trilogy the story here is pretty much self contained Still I ll definitely want to read The pacing is good though a bit on the slow side It feels alright though as it takes time to properly world build and to get the key players into place Smale does a good job keeping it interesting even at points where he has to make brief info dumps It s a little a time and is interspersed with bits of humor and action scenesAnd the battles Oh yes Bernard Cornwell take note Alan Smale can stir the dust and kick up a shit storm with his epic battles In many books these grow tedious but here they managed to hold my interest all the way though Easy to visualize you feel like you re right there in the heart of it allBut really this book is than the sum of its parts It s than a Native American story with Romans dumped in for flavoring It s than cool battle seuences I think what we ll see in the final product won t be really known until the trilogy is complete I for one am looking forward to the journey
