Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

Pompeii: City on Fire by T. L. Higley

This is a journey of discovery for a patrician and a slave set in Pompeii just prior to it’s devastating eruption.

I just finished Soldier of Rome: The Legionary by James Mace.   You wouldn’t know that the same Rome is being described.   This book focused far more on the short comings of the Roman Empire than the strengths of their military.  

A classic take of good versus evil with a religious overview characterizes the plot.   The main characters of Cato and Ari are well developed.   Each characterization is suffused with overt angst.   The evil is obvious and the dirty politics are familiar.  In some ways it is always surprising how little the world has changed in human interaction.  

I recommend the book.
