    1. Roman-The Fall of Britannia (The Roman Chronicle Book 1) By K.M. AshmanI like these kind of books, they are what I call "Man Books". In a way reading a chess game. All about war strategy and the actual battles. It is full of blood and Gore and hard training to become the best warrior. The Romans are like no other fighting force and they perfected the style and strategies still used in warfare to this day. Before there were all the war games I imagine these books took men into that world they so [...]

    2. I struggled with how to rate this book. There were many great things about the book. I loved the writing. The story moved along briskly and the action was fast and furious. The problem was that, in the end, while I enjoyed the story, I didn't get *lost* in the tale as a whole. Why? Two reasons: (1) I felt that the author intervened in the story too many times during the course of the story. I don't mind a bit of intervention. Once is a coincidence, but two or three times? That's too much.(2) Thr [...]

    3. Having read the authors Medieval sereis I thought I'd try this series. This is first book looking at the claudian Invasion of Britain from both the british (via a Welsh Deceanglian tribesman) and the roman sides. It is an easy read that keeps you turming the pages. It really shows the contrast between the warrior Britons and the military might of Rome and barbarism of the times. Throw in a conflict with the Druids on Ynys Mon and you get an intriguing story of a an area not normally covered. loo [...]

    4. This reminded me a lot of one of my favourite books from childhood - Legions of the Eagle by Henry Treece. Nothing too original here - just an excellent story, well told. A great new author to add to the rota!

    5. Ashman has turned out a decent novel filled with intrigue and political skullduggery expected of the ancient Romans. He blends his historical facts well with his story telling, producing a rich experience of another time. A good read for aficionados of ancient roman tales.

    6. A fabulous fast paced story, enhanced by brilliant, believable characters. Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down. Have started the second book in the series and am really enjoying it.

    7. Recommend!I like action right from the start or I get bored. The author almost lost me while setting up the characters in the prologue but the first chapter gets the ball rolling. There are a few stories going on that won’t let you put the book down. I connected with the main characters just fine & I look forward to seeing what’s in store for them!

    8. THE FALL OF BRITANNIA BOOK 1Like historical fiction based on factGood fast pace storey Would recommend to all who enjoy this kind of book

    9. Very well written This was a well written book I likey I likey I likey I likey! Did I mention that I likey!

    10. Nit badI read for thee commute to Boston is book was OKs fairly accurate, fast paced and tells a good storygood for lifge reading

    11. FascinatingOnce again a great read by km Ashman ,enjoyed it no end looking forward to the next book to see what happens to all the characters

    12. Paper-thin characters and the author seems more interested in feeding us the minutest details of what everyone ate, wore and fought with than providing a coherent story. And as for that plot twist near the end, to quote one of the characters when it was revealed to him ‘This is too far a stretch for my imagination, the coincidence is too great.’The only thing that stopped me abandoning the book whilst still only a few chapters in was that I bought all three books in the trilogy at once as th [...]

    13. Held my interest. The level of detail was a bit sparse and the book was written such that it could comfortably be understood by middle-school students, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. I read a Kindle edition so needless to say the editing was worse than poor, which detracts from the enjoyment somewhat, and there were some anachronisms and logical slips that also annoyed. For example, at one point a Roman soldier goes undercover and tries to pass for a member of a British tribe but he uses his Roma [...]

    14. Obviously about the invasion of Britain by Rome. The story-telling was better than that found in the last book I read (The Day Gaul Died, by a different author), however, I still found it too sped up and patchy. Also questioning some of the historical/cultural things added in this story. All in all, it wasn't bad, but wasn't amazing either. Would be interested in reading the next book in the series, but not going to pursue it straight away.

    15. Wasn't quite the historical page turner I expected. Used accurate Roman references, however the sense of time seemed diluted to progress the story. All around very entertaining, well written historical fiction.

    16. Wales with a K?Interesting read, haven't read anything pre Boudicca so this was new! P!us the Welsh being introduced - what more can you ask for. May we!l read the next.

    17. A complete slog. Disconnected characters, no sense of time passing, events occur either in the space of hours or years but with no clear indication of plot progression.

    18. I love historical fiction. Ancient Rome and Britain are two of my favorites combined in this series.

    19. Great entertainment A mix of historical details and breathtaking action make this book great entertainment. Kevin Ashman is currently my favorite fiction author.

    20. Good except for whores and sex scenesYup as I said above it is only God for that ssh :-) cu st chi v chi f see
