    1. I found this book to be a quick read The goddess Vespa was not one that I knew very much about prior to reading this book I really enjoyed the pace and the intermingling of the religious and political aspects of the story.

    4. A decent read though a little meandering and with a veryccollapsed feeling in some places timeline history wise The ending didn t seem to go anywhere for me but the research, setting and details were good Should be interesting to see what the 2nd book is about if it comes out.For a interesting read on the Vestal Virgins and thir lives and duties check out Sherri Smith s The Virgin s Tale or Vestal Virgin by Suzanne Tyrpak for history with some Christian themes, both great reads
