The Man From Rome
by Dylan James Quarles
Genre: Urban Fantasy
From the author of the highly rated Ruins Of Mars Trilogy:
Rome is a city like no other, protected by a man like no other.
He is the unnamed Immortal, the Man from Rome, and he is under attack.
An agent of his secret order has been murdered, her tongue ripped out, her throat coated in molten silver. The killing is meant to be a message, a warning that old enemies have resurfaced to punish the Man for the sins of his past.
Forced to retaliate, the Man sets in motion a sequence of events which pit an American thief, a Roman policewoman, a heartless mercenary, and a fallen Olympian against one another in all-out war. The streets of Rome become a battleground where the supernatural clash with the mortal, and the Eternal City bears witness to yet another chapter in its storied history of violence.
Vengeance reigns supreme in this, the newest Novel from Dylan James Quarles.
I absolutely LOVED this book. So much mystery, so much adventure, and the suspenseful scenes were written marvelously, with lots of action. What’s even better? There’s going to be another book! Yes, lots of mystery still to be discovered. I can’t wait. I need to know who The Man is!
The Man from Rome, the actual man, was the most intriguing character. I can’t really say a lot about him because we don’t know much, but he definitely made this book.
I loved Cato and hope to see him again. I’m not sure if we will, but he is a noteworthy character. There was a lot going on with him. He discovered that his life was not what he thought it was and dealt with many twists and surprises. I still have some questions about him that I hope will be answered in the next book.
Louisa, there is still a lot of mystery with her, too. She’s very smart, calculating, and seems to know what she wants. However, some of that slips in the story. She seems to go back and forth on certain aspects. Thankfully, we should see her again!
Mr. Hannity was very cut and dry—a mercenary. He thrived on battle and bloodshed.
Then we have the mythological characters. I don’t want to give that away, just be prepared for some paranormal aspects.
I have to point out that there are lots of spelling and grammar errors. However, it did not distract from the story. I repeat: it did not distract from the story. There’s just so much going on, the buildup was amazing, and again, the mystery will drive you to read faster.
