Roman Twilight - A Book Review






In Elizabeth May's sequel to Roman Sunset, she explores further the lands of current day Great Britain during the time after Rome's departure from the land. Within the book, Roman Twilight, she continues the story of Quintus and many other characters in their journey to new lands and new and old friends.

From an historical read, this is very interesting. The descriptions of everything from the houses to the dress are extremely detailed. I have not studied this period, but it appears that Ms. May has more than done her research in this area.

The characters are not as in depth as they were in the first book and there seems to be a lot of activity moving from place to place within the book. It was hard to really get to know the characters. Quintus was already familiar from the first book. In that regard, it was rather disappointing.

But I have to say that Ms. Mays is excellent in conveying the sense of being there at the scene. Just as I felt after the first book, I wanted to do more research into the area and get familiar with the historical end of it. At the end of the book, she has a list of historical people and places mentioned in the book along with a description of it. I love that kind of stuff in an historical fiction book. It really enhances the work.

If you like Roman Sunset, you should read this to discover the rest of Quintus' story. I do recommend that you read Roman Sunset first, though.

Note: This book was provided as gift from a colleague with no expectation of a positive review.
