It is incredibly clear how

It is incredibly clear how much time and effort went into the research for this book, and it’s always enjoyable to be immersed in a world that the author is so engaged in crafting. The plot is compelling, the characters interesting, and I often found myself chuckling at the clever dialogue. As someone who has read much of Roberts’ published writing, I highly recommend ‘The Barbarian Princess’ to anyone interested.

A powerful tale of adventure

A powerful tale of adventure and intrigue, devotion and betrayal and the power of love with a touch of mysticism. This well written book has been throughly researched as benefits a work of historical fiction. In the postscript we learn that the principle characters really existed. The authors ability to draw their portraits allows the reader to come to know them, like them and perhaps even identify with them. The extensive use of latin words and phrases demands concentration but soon becomes familiar enough not to slow the reader and adds to our enlightenment.
We are treated to details of the make up of a typical Roman legion and its day to day functions from the food they ate to the uniforms they wore as well as their weapons. The reader can follow Roman engineers as they build roads, bridges and fortresses with helpful descriptions of the tools they used.
We know from history that there were powerful Britanic women like Bodica during the Roman occupation so our Barbarian Princes has precedent. The coming together of a Roman leader and such a woman presents a novel twist.,
It would have been helpful to have current British cities included in the facing map. In two occasions we hear a ranking Roman officer “holler” his demands. The word holler seems out of place. These minor quibbles aside I found Ristino’s novel both entertaining and informative and a really good read.

Really enjoyed the book. Kept

Really enjoyed the book. Kept my interest t throughout. Any student of the Roman Empire specifically the
Roman legions organization and their positive effect, both militarily and more importantly theiir introduction of laws and infrastructure on the then known world at that time will, read this with interest.
The interaction of the Briton princess and the basic religion of her people which centered on the natural world and the spirits that inhabited it mirrors closely the beliefs of the American Native Americans. Makes you wonder who was closer to the truth of the universe , them or the current Judeo Christian, Islamic religious view that have countenanced so much bloodshed in the last thousand years.

Recently finished Dogs Vs. Aliens

Recently finished Dogs Vs. Aliens and found it to be an easy and captivating novel. As an avid dog lover, I empathized with each and every dog and character in the book. Perhaps one of my favorite paragraphs of all times is Mr. Ristino’s closing paragraph. A truly enjoyable read!
