    ePUB Hadrian's Wall MOBI È Ï 1st grade.co hadrian's ebok, wall kindle, Hadrian's Wall EpubI love this historical period but this book fell way short of my expectations To be honest I didn't like rating this Roman book lower than most others I've rated but I felt there was enough justification Inspector Agens in Rebus?? Draco from Rome is tasked to find out the circumstances of the disappearance of a Senator's daughter who has married the praefectus legate of the Petrianis cavalry fortress and also why a horde of barbarians have attacke

    ePUB Hadrian's Wall MOBI È Ï 1st grade.co hadrian's ebok, wall kindle, Hadrian's Wall EpubThis is a uick fun read for those who like historical fiction especially readers who appreciate novels that deftly combine romance mystery and action packed battle scenes Based on the Great Barbarian Uprising in AD 367 between the Celts of Scotland and Roman Britannia the story takes place along the approximately 80 mile Hadrian's Wall that marked the northern most boundary of the mighty Roman Empire It foreshadows the ultimate demise of Imperial Rome that would rock the world a century later The contrast of ancient Celtic magic and nature worship compared to Roman discipline and pragmatism is fascinating Having just walked the entire Hadrian's Wall Path now a World Heritage Site from the Irish to the North Sea myself I can vouch for the author's accurate and picturesue descriptions of this beautiful and fanciful part of the world

    ePUB Hadrian's Wall MOBI È Ï 1st grade.co hadrian's ebok, wall kindle, Hadrian's Wall EpubThis book really helped Hadrian's Wall come alive for me I'd heard of the wall and seen picture of the ruins but never really thought about the people who lived by the wall Dietrich does a good job of describing the characters and their motivations I really enjoyed that the Inspector never met the main character Valeria and that he had to piece together what happened from people's biased memories and views The negative points are that plot is easily guessed at some parts and the characters are a bit predictable That said I really enjoyed the setting and cultural insights both Roman and Celtic I'll definitely be reading by Dietrich

    ePUB Hadrian's Wall MOBI È Ï 1st grade.co hadrian's ebok, wall kindle, Hadrian's Wall EpubHadrian's Wall has long fascinated me especially after I found out that it was an inspiration for the Wall in George Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire It seemed to me a majestic wall the thought of which gave me shivers of excitement and a bit of fear That is why I decided to pick up this book as soon as I saw it I really liked the way the story is told from the points of view of several people interviewed by an inspector and i really liked the endig the idea of receiving the freedom one longs for I found the descriptions of the Roman life and its contrast to the Celtic one interesting However what prevented me from rating this book higher was mostly the 'woman marries a man she does not love and falls in love with someone completely

    ePUB Hadrian's Wall MOBI È Ï 1st grade.co hadrian's ebok, wall kindle, Hadrian's Wall EpubI had not read a good Roman romance novel in many an age This story is set in Roman England when the wall is already two hundred years old A senator's daughter travels to the border lands to wed a praefactor She is kidnapped by a Caledonian barbarian and much like the stories from the American west where Caucasian captives decided they preferred the Native American lifestyle she finds much to like north of the wall Naturally her captor is ruggedly handsome and respectful and honorable uite the little romance story

    ePUB Hadrian's Wall MOBI È Ï 1st grade.co hadrian's ebok, wall kindle, Hadrian's Wall EpubI was interested in this novel because I have always found Hadrian’s Wall in England very intriguing He was the same Roman emperor that built Hadrian’s Villa outside Rome that I visited when I was 17 He was a very ambitious emperor and builder This book gives insight into England in the first century There is discussion of Christianity Paganism and other religious influences Politics are also a huge part of the book Understanding of the culture particularly of Calendonia now Scotland is very useful There are ficticious characters that are Roman and Celt to help in understanding the era This book does have sexuality than I would like to read or recommend to someone else For that reason I probably wouldn’t reread itPLOT SPOILER ALERTThe Roman aristocrat Valeria is brought to the wall to marry the Roman
