Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The founding of Rome and the maturation of a hero who has greatness thrust upon him are the subjects of Virgil’s first-century (B.C.) epic.” Kirkus Reviews
“A sweeping epic filled with adventure and mythology, heroes and gods. There is a lot of material here for students of history, Greek and Roman mythology, ancient literature…[Davidson’s] diction and pacing are quite good.”  Kliatt
