The Supreme Warrior Zusammenfassung

The Supreme Warrior Frances Hendry

Having sucessfully avoided taking the blame for the great fire that has destroyed much of Rome, Victoria continues to humour the increasingly insane Emperor Nero, while securing herself her freedom. Together with her brave Roman accomplice, Caenis, Victoria is certain that soon the only decent ruler, Vespasian, with whose army her step-father fought back in Londinium, will come to rule at last. Nero's days are numbered, so his summons for her to return to Rome from her house outside the city fills her with foreboding.And Nero has a surprise waiting for her: a British bard has joined his group of entertainers, none other than her cousin, Cram. Though a part of her is pleased to see a familiar face, Victoria remembers Cram's final treachery back in Britain, and is certain he is here to further his own misguided plans for retribution. But Cram is her flesh and blood: can she really betray him in the name of dead Queen Boudicca? And will Victoria survive to tell the tale?

The Supreme Warrior Bewertungen

Rich with vividly drawn characters and packed with exciting and audacious plots and plans, not to mention breathtakingly described exploits and fights in the arena, this novel tingles with atmosphere. The storyline is compelling and the attention to historical detail and empathy is equally absorbing. The reader becomes immersed ... Recommended highly as an historical source, with a short, useful introduction and a helpful glossary, this pulsating tale leads us through the year of the four Emperors and conjures up Roman life in a fresh and evocative way. Alison Hurst, School Librarian Hendry paints a vivid picture of the terrible excesses of Nero's Rome in its final days ... A gripping read, packed with information and ideas. 4 stars (out of 5). Books for Keeps
