Rome in its darkest age is poignantly depicted in this exquisite historical thriller, featuring the barbarous Aelric traveling with Father Maximin to Rome in a literary quest to salvage cultural treasure from oblivion, books to copy and send to an England whose contact with Rome, no more caput mundi but still harbouring a powerful Catholic Church has recently been renewed. As with the Republivcan Rome by Steven Saylor, you feel its spirit in the writing of the Author, more learned than ut seems. Aelric will find himself in a web of conspiracy, where no-one could be trusted to be what he-she claims to be. a gripping, wholly satisfying read!
