Not bad but a slow read. Mind switches from past to present as names, places challenge actual history. If nothing else it will keep you guessing.

Personally, I love these "alternate history" novels, the "what if" fantasy. And this one is original if nothing else...a Roman soldier in Cahokia in a world where the Roman Empire is still going strong in the days just before real history saw Europeans begin their invasion of the American continent. Notice I didn't say "discovery"? Aren't I politically correct? Anyhow, all I will say is that this novel makes me really want to see the next installment in the series.
