How does the setting figure into the book? Does it come to life? The setting was perfect. Everything, and yes I mean everything came to life for me while reading.
What are some of the book's themes? Honor, war, friendship. I almost wanted to go with the old Marine saying, Semper Fi
If you were to talk with the author, what would you want to know? How much research went into writing this book? Why did he pick to write about the Roman Empire? How many books is he planning for this? Does he plan on offering his version of maps to go along with the books?
So many more questions I would love to ask the author. Wish he could do an online audio interview.
If you could rewrite the ending, would you? No, any ending I could think to write would not compare to the wonderful creative words provided by Peake.
Did the book end the way you expected? I honestly did not have any expectations on how the book would end. Any kind of speculation would ruin the reading experience.
Disclosure: I received a copy from the author for an honest review.
