Remus Rising by Jonathan Williamson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This short novel or novella ought to be on the top of anyone's list if they want to see a fantasy treatment of Rome's founder come back to fight within the Ninth Legion. :)
Simple enough, right? And it is.
There's tons of great action, pathos, a little escaping from Hades, and a lot more stalwart fighting against vast, monstrous odds. :)
There DOES seem to be some good history in here but most of it is relaxed in favor of a great beginning to an epic fantasy. It reads like a fun action film. :) Lots of burly men with gladiuses and shield-walls, monsters, druids, and last-ditch defenses.
I'd read more. :)
