I guess this was okay, nothing particularly special about the mystery which really drew me in at all.
However, I do feel that this is well researched and the writing clear but rather old too. It did fit the ancient time of the story. However, I just really didn’t care about any of the characters.
Or any of the plot at all. Something about the Chiron, something about a conspiracy, but nothing really intriguing me. Since it was all centered around Athanasius having to prove himself.
But really, I don’t really care about him at all. There was absolutely nothing interesting which will have intrigued me in this book. I don’t understand why is it all so important at all.
And really, it just wasn’t written in a way that will interest me. The writing was really just dull and the real reason why I just could not enjoy the story. Along with the fact that most of the characters don’t feel real to me, they don’t jump out of the pages or made me care for them.
And there is where I think that this book just didn’t meet my expectations, however it is something for those who love Roman history. Which I have a very poor understanding of, and at the same time need a good solid character to be able to really care about this book.
