Rome: The Coming of the King (Rome 2): A compelling and gripping historical adventure that will keep you turning page after page Kindle Edition
From the Inside Flap
AD 65: Sebastos Pantera, spy to the Emperor Nero, has undertaken a mission of the highest possible risk. Hunting often alone, with few he can trust, he must find the most dangerous man in Rome's empire, and bring him to bloody justice.
Against him is Saulos. Consumed by private enmities and false beliefs, Saulos is pledged to bring about the destruction of an entire Roman province. Brilliantly clever, utterly ruthless, he cares only for his vision of total victory - and not for the death and devastation such a campaign would bring.
Between them is the huntress Ikshara. Beautiful and deadly, she must decide who to support if she is to avenge her father's death.

The characters are, as usual, interesting and well presented. I do have three (somewhat minor) issues, however.
One is about Pantera siding with Menachem and attacking the fortress of Massada, garrisoned by an eline cohort of Roman legionaries, so that the Jews can get their hands on arms and armour. A Roman, secret agent of the Emperor, seems a bit unlikely to go that far. Is this even plausible?
The other is that they in fact manage to storm the fortress, against all odds, including numbers (about 100 lightly armed sicaires against a cohort of 500 heavily armed and elite legionaries). This does not seem very plausible either and a bit more explanations here might have been necessary as to whether something like this really happening. My last issue is the ease with which Ikshara changes sides. I won't say more because I don't want to spoil the plot for anyone.
Well worth reading and I'll certainly buy the next installment. Four stars for me, given my little issues.
So I 're-ordered it from Amazon and thoroughly enjoyed it but it's not as good as The Leopards first outing!
Ready to read the third book now!!
