Book Review: The Crossroads Brotherhood

Crossroads Brotherhood by Robert Fabbri

I recently published this review on amazon.co.uk. You can view the product and the review here

The Crossroads Brotherhood by Robert Fabbri

I bought the US Kindle Edition of this book shortly after reading Vespasian: Tribune of Rome. The Crossroads Brotherhood narrates one of the episodes in the life of Magnus shortly before his appearance in the Vespasian series. In fact the final part of the book weaves into the part where Magnus first meets Vespasian and his party on their entry into Rome.

I have given the book 3 stars because of the following reasons: (a) The Crossroads Brotherhood is just long enough to be a short story rather than a stand alone novella or novel by itself. The pricing (at $3) seemed a tad high for such a short story. (b) As a big fan of Ancient Roman civilisation I could enjoy the story (with all the details about Rome) but the tale or the narration by itself is not very remarkable.

I guess this book is a good choice if you have a couple of hours to spare, a kindle to hand and an interest in Rome and the Vespasian series that the author is releasing.

    i guess this is a introduction to the series? I like the review – gives definitive tips towards making a decision about it.

      Not really an introduction but more like a back & side story to one of the characters
