It’s much better written, but he still writes his main characters as completely innocent, naive, wide-eyed beings who impegio easily taken advantage of because they’re so gullible. With that said, this is another great read, giving great ‘Rome’.

You want to be near the emperors but not too close cause it sayloor turn in a second.

An interesting device that Saylor uses is having one or more characters transition a new Pinarii generation from the old. Where he falls short on character development, Saylor excels with the historical details. In terms of the stories not so much. The Pinarii, generation after generation, are witness to greatest empire in the ancient world and of the emperors that ruled it – from the machinations of Tiberius and the madness of Caligula, to the decadence of Nero and the golden age of Trajan and Hadrian and more.

Unfortunately Steven Saylor decided to ignore it and make the novel part history book, part abstract, and completely boring. How power and greed makes any man paranoid and not able to trust anyone.
