The Peacekeeper (Britannia Romanus Book 5) Kindle Edition
I have loved every book written by Jess Steven Hughes, historical novels and set in Roman Britain. Where, you say? Read the First four Hughes books, once referred to as the "Sign of the Eagle" series, and find out. Now Hughes has given us a new book, the Peacekeeper. And with it, new branding for his historical adventure series begins in earnest: Henceforth called the "Britannia Romanus" series, the triumph of these earlier volumes is about to be eclipsed with the publication of the Peacekeeper, #5 in this story but a magnificent stand-alone read as well. Why do I recommend the Britannia Romanus series? Because it's that good, good enough to recommend without reservation. Few can do what Hughes does, mixing genres to bring us books that open doors into worlds previously unknown, time after time. Hughes writes a combination of mystery, adventure, suspense and romance seldom equaled. A former Marine and police detective, real-life experience informs every sentence, every page. Those characters breathe and suffer and scheme and love and hate as if they were ripped from history whole cloth.
The Peacekeeper is suitable for young and old. At times, Hughes' writing reminds me of Umberto Ecco, at other times, Wallace Breen. With the Peacekeeper, Hughes delivers on the promise of earlier volumes, delivering a deeply-researched historical novel filled with mystery, adventure, romance, and command of his period so strong and effortless, so real, you'll think you've been to Roman Britain yourself!
Few can equal Jess Steven Hughes. So come spend some time in Roman Britain with a gifted author whose skill is never obtrusive and whose characters you'll never forget. -- Janet Morris
