Roman Mask (The Cassius Chronicles #1)45 stars Roman Mask got off to a rocky start for me but as soon as I stumbled across the to a rocky start for me but as soon as I stumbled across the Varus I knew I was onto something Our hero Cassius Aprilis was introduced to us as a spoiled rich kid rinking and partying his way through an endless succession #of meaningless ays this is not the kind #meaningless ays This is not the kind book I like and I almost put it Southern Women at the Seven Sister Colleges Feminist Values and Social Activism 1875 1915 down but luckily I was saved by a plot twist when Augustus sent him to Germany as an aide to Governor Varus Suddenly it all started to make sense Our Cassius wasn t really a wastrel he was a tortured soul who felt like a fraud as he was celebrated for a lucky breakuring a near fatal campaign where he saved his fellow soldiers from almost certain teachers Manual African American Literature death What no one knew except the reader was that he suffered what can best beescribed as PTSD and now he was being thrust back into service into what was Agricultural Innovation in the Early Islamic World destined to become one of Rome s mostisastrous DYA (1933-1939) (Libros sobre el Opus Dei) defeats of all time So now we get to watch him wriggle his way through a new assignment trying to hide his cowardice while at the same time we get to see a thorough and engrossingescription of Varus s folly Due to their immense hubris the Romans assumed that every conuered culture would be grateful to contribute to civilizing themselves Roman style Varus might have been a good governor over a less warlike society but he totally miscalculated his German province He missed all the vital signs including patrols that never returned and reports from worried subordinates Surrounded by luxury Varus heard what he wanted to hear and scorned the advice of experienced soldiers who knew all was not uite right Cassius Aprilis soon came to

carefully laid treachery had been planned for many years When the inevitable revolt burst upon the Romans they were totally outnumbered and New Writing, New Approaches (African Literature Today, Vol. 12) doomed from the start Once things started moving this book was hard to putown Tension swelled from the time Cassius started his journey to Germany and kept on going all the way to the end The story was well plotted and moved along uickly I Culture and Development in Africa (Comparative Studies in African/Caribbean Literature Series) didn t know a lot about the Germanisaster aside from what I saw in I Claudius and I think the author The Alien Huntress Series Alien Huntress did a great job of painting a very memorable picture I received this book for free via Goodreads First ReadsI admit that historical fiction is not a genre I am used to or interested in I try to read as many genres as possible and I recently finished a good book from this genreSo I admit I randomly chose this book as my next one to read as I was This is an amazing book based on the true story of the Roman Military trying to fight conuer and settle the Germanic Tribesmen in September 9 AD in and around the Teutoburgium Forest in Germany Rome has three legions with their three Golden Eagles in this area a true sign of Rome s power and strength These men are trying to build Roman strong holds and military posts all over Germany They are turning the native citizens into farmers instead of fighters their small homes into cities and farms Rome has even brought a home breed king who has been raised and trained in the Roman High Military but he is rightful King of a large group of tribesmen He is now King of many of the Germanic Tribesmen He is meant to make the Roman take over of Germany a smooth transition The able bodied tribesmen will follow him and help Rome keep the other tribes in order Rome has taken everything away from the citizens they pay super high taxes to help Rome s war machine keep going They are close to starving toeath because the soldiers take almost everything that the farmers have harvested and or slaughtered There is treachery amongst friends and infighting amongst command staff These two things will bring Rome to her knees in Germany The fighting in this book is amazing it is written in so much etail it is like you are there on the battle field This is the story of the greatest efeat in Rome s long history It is also the story of a This is the story of the greatest Agriculture at a Glance Revised Edition defeat in Rome s long history It is also the

Augustus Caesar rules Imperial Rome at the height of its power as the Roman Empire stretches across the known world Cassius son of one of her most powerful families is the personification of Rome's imperial strength wealthy popular a war hero with a ecorated military career none of Rome's fashionab. ,


His author will come up #with next Roman MaskAs an archaeologist I read a lot about Roman an Byzantine history #next Roman MaskAs an archaeologist I read a lot about Roman an Byzantine history fiction but those fictional books should be accurate Thomas MD Brooke wrote a book that is exceptionally researched and very well written It gives an impression of he harsh Roman society with houndreds of thousands of outcasts The Places of Their Own: African American Suburbanization in the Twentieth Century (Historical Studies of Urban America) description of life in the legions is wellone as are the profiles of Varus and his outcasts The The Arcav Kings Mate (Arcav Alien Invasion description of life in the legions is wellone as are the profiles of Varus and his commandersI never write about story lines or spoilers in reviews But I can tell you that the unconventional main character is also good fun too A new Gordon Doherty is born Cassius Aprilis formerly senior tribune of a legion in Roman Germania has returned to Rome in acclaim after saving his troops from a German ambush No one knows that the attack broke Cassius s nerve forcing him to resign from command Bitterly ashamed and loathing himself for his cowardice he returns to his old life of The Billionaires Arranged Baby 3 drinking andebauchery among the fast set in Rome That lasts until Livia wife of the Princeps Augustus orders him back to Germania to find out what s really going on in that vast not uite conuered wilderness The assignment revives all of Cassius s fears about the ferocious and unpredictable Germans but he has no choice He sets out for Germania with a gung ho young officer Marcus Scaeva who not only worships Cassius as a hero but can t wait to tangle with barbarians By setting the na ve brash Scaeva as a foil against the cynical inwardly panicky military veteran Cassius the author brings Cassius to three imensional life We learn as backstory that Cassius was a boyhood friend and comrade in arms of JULIUS ARMINIUS NOW A TRUSTED LEADER Arminius now a trusted leader German auxiliaries attached to the army of Governor Varus Brooke s neat stratagem is for Cassius to refer to Arminius as Julius thus eterring readers of history whose memories might be pricked by repetition of the man s surname Eventually Cassius is challenged under the most ghastly of circumstances to prove his courageThe Alien description of life in the legions is wellone as are the profiles of Varus and his military commanders Although many of these are historical figures Brooke boldly grafts personality traits onto them that make the eventual leadership crisis both believable and inevitable The stage setting seems very authentic with only a few possible glitches men in togas reclining at inner Altogether plot characterization and setting can t be faultedWhat can be faulted though is the lack of copyediting It s epressing to come across a barbarian hoard on the very first page Numerous examples of bad sentence construction and incorrect grammar mar what is otherwise an excellent story Alas the nobly born Cassius Lights, Camera, Action (Paranormal Talent Agency Book 1) doesn t know his Latin either He hands over twenty gold aureus and then another tenenarius instead of aurei and Becoming a Church that Cares Well for the Abused denarii enjoys matching gladius with you rather than gladii and walks through the atrium to the tablino apparently an Italian annex I m sorry to have to take away two stars for such carelessness My hope is that Brooke will have the manuscript professionally copyedited
